I'm getting the following error when trying to backup my laptop (Mac OSX) to
my server (RHEL4) when running rdiff-backup v1.1.5 on both sides:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/sw/bin/rdiff-backup", line 23, in ?
  File "/sw/lib/python2.4/site-packages/rdiff_backup/Main.py", line 295, in

    if isinstance(result, Exception): raise result
OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied:

I've tried running rdiff-backup --check-destination-dir on the backup
directory to no avail.

Here are the permissions on the file that seems to be causing the problem:

The permissions on the backup side don't look problematic:

drwx------   2 corey corey 4096 Jun 27  2006

On my laptop the permissions look slightly different:

drw-------    2 root  wheel   68 Jun 27  2006

Hopefully someone can offer a fix.  As it stands I'm unable to use
