Re: Palm handhelds *nearly* working again in Fedora: a plea for some (HAL) help



With impeccable timing my patch to upstream hal-info has been merged.
I'll take this as implicit acceptance! This gives me more confidence
we're doing the right thing, but any further review would be welcome.

Yeah, IMHO this release shouldn't have been pushed to updates (though I
don't think it made it through intentionally). Although Palm sync was
already broken "out of the box" for F8 and earlier, this release also
broke it for anyone who'd been bothered to configure it for themselves.
Worse still, the HAL/PolKit configuration it shipped with wasn't
functional. Sorry.

That's great to hear! What model Palm are you using?

I haven't braved gpilotd for many years. Some possible leads?
