I have used  centos to build a petalinux system to download to target. Now I want to use ubuntu instead to build my petalinux image. I need to copy all the directories which include hardware, software and tools. I have tried to copy all with SSH from th ubuntu system but efter a while some error appers. I have also tried to mount a disc from the windows system in each system ant copy to/from but this also gives problems. My question is how do I copy all the directories with dependencies and everything from one linux system to another?
