I have a database of my books in mysql, accessed with rekall (kde3),
stored in my desktop. A copy of it is also in my laptop, done by simply
copying over the entire folder "/var/lib/mysql/Biblioteca/" with mysql
stopped - which is why I named the subject ...in sync asynchronously.
The machines are independent and only interconnected at times.

But I wonder if that is the proper way to do it. There might be
problems, because the laptop uses 11.4 and the dektop 12.1. Perhaps I
should use other methods to transfer only the data... :-?

Cheers / Saludos,
