Re: PalmOS PDA and FC4



It's a BIG hassle due to udev. From my own experience I can tell that
pilot-link needs to connect to PalmOS within about 10 seconds after
pressing the hotsync button. Unfortunately pilot-link is not prepared
for udev and fails to a missing device node instead of waiting for it to
be created. Even on a dual Opteron machine and a wrapper-script around
pilot-xfer it often takes longer for udev to create the device node than
PalmOS accepts the connection.

The only thing I can suggest is to mknod() and use a ttyUSB1 outside
the /dev tree. I also tried to compile pilot-link with libusb support
but could not get it to work.

If you believe certain words, you believe their hidden arguments. When you
believe something is right or wrong, true or false, you believe the
assumptions in the words which express the arguments. Such assumptions are
often full of holes, but remain most precious to the convinced.
