10.4: Avoid rsync errors during backup due to Spotlight
Authored by: BlackPenguin on Jan 16, '06 08:32:01AM
There are a number of known issues with the version of rsync shipped with OS 10.4.x. I'm hoping that they are resolved in future versions, but until then, I opted to build a patched version of rsync that fixes them. There are detailed instructions as well as patches here: Fixing rsync on Tiger.

In order to use these, you will need to have the Developer Tools installed and have little fear of the command line. The patches have worked well for me, and I currently employ rsync in my backup and synchronization strategy.
