trouble: pilot-link sync w/ plan

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
""  or about loadable modules

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

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.
