Hi

 

I am trying to fetch some files with rsync from my pineapple with the command:

rsync -avz -e "ssh -p 2222" root@localhost:SRC/ DEST/

and get the following result:

ash: rsync: not found
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [Receiver]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(226) [Receiver=3.1.1]

 

One might think this is some pathing issue, but 

find -iname "rsync"

yields no finding.

 

Now, this gives me the indication that rsync is not installed on pineapple.

I cannot find rsync as a module at https://www.wifipineapple.com/modules#tetra

Thus trying:

opkg install rsync

gives:

Unknown package 'rsync'.
Collected errors:
 * opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package rsync.

 

After finding some build instructions for rsync:

wget https://download.samba.org/pub/rsync/rsync-3.1.3.tar.gz
tar -zxv -f rsync-3.1.3.tar.gz
cd rsync-3.1.3/
./configure

I get this output:

configure.sh: Configuring rsync 3.1.3
checking build system type... ./config.guess: unable to guess system type

This script, last modified 2013-05-16, has failed to recognize
the operating system you are using. It is advised that you
download the most up to date version of the config scripts from

  http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=config.git;a=blob_plain;f=config.guess;hb=HEAD
and
  http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=config.git;a=blob_plain;f=config.sub;hb=HEAD

If the version you run (./config.guess) is already up to date, please
send the following data and any information you think might be
pertinent to <config-patches@gnu.org> in order to provide the needed
information to handle your system.

config.guess timestamp = 2013-05-16

UNAME_SYSTEM  = Linux
UNAME_VERSION = #16 Fri Oct 28 05:46:25 UTC 2016
configure.sh: error: cannot guess build type; you must specify one

 

 

And I've ended up painting myself into a corner with Linux again.

What is the issue here?

And how may I overcome the obstacles so that I am able to fetch files from my pineapple with rsync?

Please forgive me if I have missed something obvious here.
