i want to use UNISON to sync files between my opensuse 12.1 pcs and an old opensuse 11.2 server on which iam not allowed to update (or reinstall) to opensuse 12.1.
The Problem is that the new version of UNISON which comes with opensuse 12.1 is 2.40.63 but the version i can install on the server pc is 2.27.157.
I tried to you it but got the error that both versions have to be identical.
How can i update the old UNISON to the new version?
What i already tried is to manualy download and compile the UNISON source (which worked) but the manual says “installing is as easy as copying the new executable over the old one” but i do not now where the old one is! i even tried to put the new one in /bin but this did not helped, the old one is still used when typing unison.
Where is the old one located? And can i simply overwrite it? I do not need the GUI.
