Re: sony clie tj37



Thanks John. Still no joy :(
However got this from tail -f /var/log/messages after /sbin/modprobe visor and started sync from palm:


Sep 1 23:36:47 athos kernel: hub.c: new USB device 00:02.2-1.2, assigned address 11
Sep 1 23:36:47 athos kernel: usb.c: USB device 11 (vend/prod 0x54c/0x169) is not claimed by any active driver.


I hope this can narrow down the options.
By the way I'm with kernel 2.4.22-1.2199.nptl on AMD processor.

I know about j-pilot but it asks for /dev/pilot - what's this ?


/dev/pilot is a link to the device file your Clie connects through, e.g.:

[john starfleet john]$ ls -l /dev/pilot
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 12 Feb 25  2004 /dev/pilot -> /dev/ttyUSB0

I don't know what visor is.


"visor" is the kernel module that allows your Clie to communicate with your computer. It needs to be loaded in order for this communication to occur. Ideally hotplug should load it automatically when the Clie connects.

I think the problem is that some kind of driver is missing for fedora to
recognize my palm.


Check that the visor module is loading, e.g. "lsmod|grep visor"

If it isn't, load it manually with "modprobe visor" and try again.
