some 4 weeks ago I learned from the list that there are problems with the
to provide 2.32 for 10.6 via macports.
in the meantime I've got a new macbook running 10.6 and tried to migrate
my data from a desktop
ppc running 10.4 using unison 2.27.
contrary to the errorfree operation when doing exactly the same between
the desktop machine
and my previous g4-labtop (running 10.4 as well) I now get _lots_ of
"fingerprint mismatch" errors leading
to substantial ommissions in the transfer. (if anybody has an idea, _why_
these problems occur, I would of course
appreciate some feedback.)
I'm therefore coming back to this: unison 2.32 supposedly is significant
improved vs. 2.27. (and especially
there is a remark in the release notes concerning temp-files for
inspecting 'fingerprint mismatch' errors...),
so maybe my problems go away (or can be solved via the unison list)
if I can upgrade to unison 2.32 both on the 10.4 and the 10.6 machine.
I even would be happy to get the 10.6 version alone (since the desktop
will be upgraded to 10.6 soon).
my question therefore is: if you've managed to get the commandline version
running would it not be possible
to provide this for the time being, for instance as a different port
'unison-cli-only'? or is there another
way to get hold of it?
thanks in advance
