Unison doesn't use stable build


Post by piwwo » 14 Jan 2019 18:28

Unison on XigmaNas has the version 2.51, which is the latest but the changelog recommended 2.48 as the latest stable version (, which therefore is the version installed on many other systems. Therefore syncing fails when I try to run unison to my local debian server running on testing:

Code: Select all

~# unison default
Unison 2.51.2 (ocaml 4.02.3): Contacting server...
Fatal error: Received unexpected header from the server:
 expected "Unison 2.51 with OCaml >= 4.01.2\n" but received "Unison 2.48\n\000\000\000\000\017", 
which differs at "Unison 2.4".
Other versions are not available on XigmaNas?

PS: I am using socket: method, since the server is connected via OpenVPN in an own VLAN and I need maximum performanche that's why I don't want to use SSH.

Unison 2.51.2 is classified by the author as 'latest release' and 'stable' on github.
It looks like the latest stable didn't make it into Debian yet.
