After many trials & tribulations, I've finally got my laptop running F12
- got caught by the "yumex kernel upgrade" problem - still can't get ark
to read consistently from my external disc -even after running cpu test
for 2 days & memtest for 80 hours without error & getting a clean bill
of health from palimpsest for the HDD, - so tried rsync & ssh & finally
followed enough "how to"s to copy my /home from F11 to F12. Thanks to
all for the many ideas of how to fix it!
Now.... seeing how brilliant rsync is at updating my /home on the 2
machines, I thought it'd be a Good Idea to try and use it to keep a
website I look after, up to date. Problem is - how do I specify the
"receiver" address, when I only have an ftp access to the distant system
(& I guess my chances of installing rsync on a provider's system is
about as good as......) All the notes I read on the 'net seem to work
with ip addresses, which I don't know how to find for my target...
As ever, enormous thanks for any pointers & pushes in a "good" direction!
