** edit 8/6/15 * So the crux of my problem turned out not to be some quirkiness with the config file. In the end it turned out I simply had multiple ssh directories in 2 different places, and was using the wrong one. It's an embarrassing mistake to make, but live and learn, right?
I'm trying to do a backup of my Nokia N900 (a linux box smart phone) with
rsnapshot. For reasons I can't understand,
rsnapshot throws up the following error:
rsync: Failed to exec /usr/bin/ssh -p 22 -i /home/thelemur/.ssh/id_rsa_n900: \ No such file or directory (2)
What's strange about this to me is that I can run the very same
ssh command line from a bash terminal, and have no problem. I've tried playing with the backslashes, entering the
rsnapshot command from root, and even placing a
sudo directly in the
rsnapshot config file. I've also checked my tab placement in the config file. Does anyone know what I've been doing wrong?
