Handle resource forks correctly with newer rsync
Authored by: TonyT on Oct 15, '09 09:21:41AM
Please note that 3.0.6 does not properly handle the metadata for the new HFS+ filesystem compression.
Also, another problem is that the creation times are not preserved in x64 in Snow Leopard (this can be fixed at compile time.)

Also, remember to apply the fileflags.diff and crtimes.diff patches.

Handle resource forks correctly with newer rsync

I should point out that file system compression in its default form - at least if I'm reading the scattered notes I can find about it correctly - only applies to read-only system files. It is not used on user-created files, third-party applications, or other installed or created items unless a user (or developer) specifically enables it. You can find the hack to do that in this hint if you are interested. Otherwise, you should not have a problem using rsync 3.x, so long as you are careful about copying files installed by Apple (system files, Apple apps, and etc) and follow the instructions that TonyT and johnemac give above to properly compile and install 3.x on Snow Leopard..
