Hi Andrew:
Thanks for your reply. I am aware of the incompatibility between versions. I've got 1.0.5 running on both ends (has to be - older Gentoo server is very fragile - no chance of upgrading). In fact the entire reason for this install is to support a backup from the Gentoo server. I also have another machine (or two) running v1.1.15 that I've done a separate install (of v1.1.15) for the same reason. I am in a school environment and we have limited resources for technology.

Hello all:

I'm a noob linux user trying to get rdiff v1.0.5 working (older Gentoo server at origin, new Ubuntu 8.04 install on virtual machine is destination).

Hi Bob,

Your problem is probably here. Versions 1.0.5 (old stable branch, ~23 months old) and versions 1.1.x (old development) and 1.2.x (new stable) are not compatible.

The new stable series, 1.2.x are all compatible with each other.

Since you said that a new Ubuntu 8.04 is installed on the destination, I suspect that it has version 1.1.15 or so.

I suggest you install version 1.2.1 on both the client and the destination.
