Yes, I've tried both refresh-from-remote and refresh-from-local (despite that cleared
my database) and I always get the "Comparison was impossible" message.
Could you tell me more about synccompare?
In the syncevolution.org
packages, it is under /usr/bin/synccompare.
It's a perl script that takes two database dumps and compares them,
similar to a diff between text files.
It gives you additional information what exactly changed during a sync
(for example: ADR in a contact changed from foo to bar) instead of
merely saying "one contact changed".
Can I use it or debug by another command line?
You can call it with "synccompare <dump A> <dump B>" where each
parameter is one of the ~/.cache/syncevolution/*/*.before or *.after
