Rsync Access

The Unix Archive can also be accessed via an rsync server on minnie.tuhs.org. See the rsync web page for details on how to obtain a client.

The rsync access is divided into a number of categories in order to ease the load on the Unix Archive server. The categories are:

Name Holds Size (Megs)
UA_Root root files 5M
UA_Applications Applications directory 270M
UA_Distributions Distributions directory 1.7G
UA_Documentation Documentation directory 880M
UA_Tools Tools/Trees directory 20M

You can use rsync to mirror each section. To mirror the complete archive, you would issue the following commands:

mkdir Applications Distributions Documentation Tools

rsync -avz minnie.tuhs.org::UA_Root             .
rsync -avz minnie.tuhs.org::UA_Applications     Applications
rsync -avz minnie.tuhs.org::UA_Distributions    Distributions
rsync -avz minnie.tuhs.org::UA_Documentation    Documentation
rsync -avz minnie.tuhs.org::UA_Tools            Tools
