I have on my laptop and desktop two virtual Arch Linux (Colinux) installations, I want them to have the same set of software installed and configuration. How can I easily keep them in sync?

Sounds like something you could do with rsync.

You think I should just use rsync with whole Linux filesystem? Will it be smart enough to not send too much? –  hmp Sep 1 '09 at 18:20

Yep. Rsync will only update what it needs to mirror the system. You can iron out a good set by selectively --excludeing things you would not want to sync, such as /mnt –  jweede Sep 1 '09 at 18:29
