Install rsync on an rpath appliance

I have an rpath-based appliance that we use. It’s sugarcrm, fyi. This is the mysterious incantation I had to utter to install rsync on it:

conary update rsync=conary.rpath.com@rpl:1

I’m really starting to hate rpath and this conary crap. I mean, there’s nothing on this appliance? Rsync, strace, lsof … nothing. WTF?

Anyway, at least I’ve got rsync installed. But I’ve learnt my lesson – stay the fuck away from rpath-based appliances in future.
