ok, have it your way my friend…if you wanna do it the hard way use
BeeDiff (its in the repos) to compare and then drag and drop (or
copy*paste) to update…
but be REAL careful because BeeDiff does things AUTOMATICALLY, like it
uses things like ls (a DREADED ‘command’) to build the list of files
you see in the GUI!!
and, if you drag and drop in Konqueror or Dolphin you LOOSE total
control because in actuality no mouse is strong enough to carry all
that weight, and another SCARY command (like mv) actually does the work!)
while rsync is SO simple, direct and totally in control!
rsync --archive --delete /path/to/source/ /path/to/destination/
will ensure the second (destination) directory contains an exact copy
of the first (source directory)
the “–delete” removes files from the destination directory that are
no longer present on the first (like, maybe they were deleted), and
“–archive” cause all file permissions and time stamps to be copied to
the destination also…
> if you have ever used Beyond Compare
i guess that is a Windows program invented after i stopped using M$
products, in 1995…so i wouldn’t know how wonderfully simple it is…
you could always dual boot and keep using it…oh, but i guess Redmond
does not allow you to even see ext2,3 or 4 huh?
and, you better be real careful with YaST too (it does thing
automatically too!! woooooooo)
