Re: [Evolution] sync

Unison deal with different files, but not difference in files.  It would
have to know the format of the contact DB file.

I see two options
1)  Rsync the files you want (i.e. mail).
2)  Use a Palm device.

#2 always bothers me as it works.  So why can't we create a virtual palm
device that is used for syncing?  We sync to the virtual device.  Copy
the device files to the new system, and unsync. It seems if we have
solved many of the tricky issues for palms, we should have solved it for
other systems.  If we haven't why not use a dummy palm.  It does not
need to replicate the palm OS, just the protocol.

hi guys !

rsync is your friend:

i don't think so
if i would always add contacts only on one PC and would like to have it
in sync with another then yes - rsync would be perfect
but i want to work with both instances of evolution;
just imagine the following situation: home pc and office pc, both
running evolution, and i have local phone calls free of charge on sunday
this means - i want to use this time to sync my evolutions, but during
the week i could add new data two both home and office PCs ... if i do
rsync, changes in one instance will be lost, won't they ?

Why don't you take a look at Unison.  It may do what you want.
