trouble: pilot-link sync w/ plan

Post by spamt.. » Tue, 02 Nov 1999 04:00:00



I'm trying to use pilot-link  (0.9.3)
to sync with  "plan" (1.8.2), under slackware (kernel 2.2.5).

Other parts of pilot-link work ok, but when I try to
run sync-plan I get this error:


/usr/lib/perl5/i486-linux/5.00403 /usr/lib/perl5
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/i486-linux /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at
/usr/local/bin/sync-plan line 6.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/local/bin/sync-plan line 6.

Furthermore, if I remove the references to MD5 in sync-plan, then
I get complaints about missing files
"Pilot.pm"  or about loadable modules

Anyone out there using this or another package to sync with "plan"?

regards,
Claude

1. Serial port problem (Syncing with pilot-link)

Hello.  I use linux and I'm having trouble syncing my palm pilot
using the pilot-link tools.  It does not appear to be a problem
with the pilot-link tools, but rather it seems that the OS is not
able to open my serial port correctly.

I am using the unstable branch of debian with a custom built
2.2.16 kernel. I'm using pilot-link version 0.9.3.  When I try to
hotsync, this happens:

k7q7:~> pilot-xfer -b .pilot
Unable to bind to port '/dev/pilot'.

The link and the permissions seem to be OK.  When I had windows on this
machine, I synced through COM1.  (My modem is on COM2.)

lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            5 Aug  5 13:57 /dev/pilot -> ttyS0
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     dialout    4,  64 Feb 22  1999 /dev/ttyS0

The only other thing I know of to check is setserial.

/dev/ttyS0, UART: unknown, Port: 0x03f8, IRQ: 4

In BeOS I have been successful syncing my pilot on serial1, which was
using the exact same IRQ and I/O Address settings.  I have searched the
web and deja and found nothing.  I have read FAQs but I have covered
all the bases they mention (permissions, links).  I am about to go crazy
as I've had my pilot working on the exact same machine before.  Since then,
I've reinstalled the OS and changed from a palm IIIx to a palm Vx.  Does
anyone have any ideas?  I hope I am merely overlooking something simple.

Thanks.
