Is it possible to make and install my own copy of rsync to run from my dreamhost account? Why I want to do this is because I’m running Mac OS X Tiger at home, which has a specially patched version of rsync that can handle mac metadata and resource forks. It works fine with Dreamhost if I don’t care about that stuff. But when I try to enable the “-E” flag, Dreamhost’s rsync gives me an error since it doesn’t know that command.
I could solve this if I could run my own patched version of rsync from my dreamhost account, but whenever I try to install it, I get a permissions error.
