    rsync installation problem


    Hello,

    I got this weird error installing rsync. I was able to install it on another server using apt-get install rysnc. This is the error:

    #apt-get install rsync
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree... Done
    The following NEW packages will be installed:
    rsync
    0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 78 not upgraded.
    Need to get 0B/261kB of archives.
    After unpacking 512kB of additional disk space will be used.
    (Reading database ... 23229 files and directories currently installed.)
    Unpacking rsync (from .../rsync_2.6.9-2etch2_i386.deb) ...
    dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/rsync_2.6.9-2etch2_i386.deb (--unpack):
    unable to create `./usr/bin/rsync': Read-only file system
    dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    /var/cache/apt/archives/rsync_2.6.9-2etch2_i386.deb
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    Hope you can help. Im not really expert on this.

    Thank you.

    I downloaded the source and got errors when executing "./configure". I read somewhere that it could be with my gcc or partition access problem. When I installed gcc, I got similar error:

    Get:1 Index of / etch/main binutils 2.17-3 [2605kB]
    Get:2 Index of / etch/main cpp-4.1 4.1.1-21 [2331kB]

    Would editing my FSTAB help? I dont know how to do that. I can post the configuration here if it helps. I just need to install rysnc.

    Code:
    unable to create `./usr/bin/rsync': Read-only file system
    With that being the first error listed, let's start there. Are you using sudo to install? Or logging into root?
