rsync from linux to solaris

I am trying to transfer data from a linux machine to a solaris machine. I get the following error while executing rsync command.

[tom@hero ~]$ rsync -az -e ssh --delete ~/test rsync: fatal: open failed: No such file or directory
protocol version mismatch - is your shell clean?
(see the rsync man page for an explanation)
rsync error: protocol incompatibility (code 2) at compat.c(62

Make sure you have /usr/lib/ in Linux box.
If not, then install "popt" package.
(For Fedora Core Linux, you can use
yum install popt
to install it)
Popt is for ssh. Or you can try without "-e ssh" first.
rsync -az --delete ~/test
