rsync backup of your ESXi box: How to make a statically linked rsync binary

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/02/09

As promised mid last year in “fixing” ESXi “rsync error: error allocating core memory buffers (code 22) at util2.c(106) [sender=3.1.2]”, I would follow up on building a static rsync for ESXi one day.

So below a few links on how to do this, roughly in the order I found them (most via [Wayback] vmware rsync “3.1.2” static – Google Search):

Boy I forgot how long ago CentOS 3.9 was: [Wayback] [CentOS-announce] CentOS 3.9 is released for i386 and x86_64

The CentOS development team is please to announce the release of CentOS
3.9 for i386 and x86_64.

This is the final minor release for CentOS-3. With this release CentOS-3
has entered its maintenance phase during which time only fixes for
critical functional and security issues will be provided.

CentOS 3.9 is available on all mirrors and via bittorrent.

This release corresponds to the upstream vendor U9 release together with
updates through July 3rd 2007 (depending on architecture).

The serverCD version (1 cdrom) is available for i386 and x86_64.

The work for the other arches is still in progress.

To get CentOS 3.9, use one of these archives (I saved all in the Wayback machine as I know how short downloads can last):

There are actually very few places that still have CentOS-3.9-i386-binDVD.iso on-line. The only place I could find was [Wayback] Index of /operating_system/unix/centos/3.9
