3. try to sync
Actual results:
dmesg shows that device is connected, it creates ttyUSB140 and ttyUSB141, but no
pilot link. Pointing it to ttyUSB14x freezes applet.

Comment 1 Ivana Varekova 2007-03-09 09:13:47 UTC
Which version of palm do you use?

Comment 2 Igor Miletic 2007-03-09 13:06:30 UTC
I am using Palm TX.

Comment 3 Mads Villadsen 2007-03-10 19:02:48 UTC
I am also using a Palm TX, and running pilot-xfer -l -p /dev/ttyUSB149 also hangs.

This is still happening for the pilot-link-0.12.1-5.fc7 package.

Comment 4 Mads Villadsen 2007-03-25 15:51:48 UTC
I have gotten pilot-xfer -l to work (and also syncing with jpilot works now, so
I am guessing gpilot should also work).

This is with kernel 2.6.20-1.3017.fc7.

I had to add the following line in a file called /etc/udev/rules.d/10-visor.rules

BUS=="usb", SYSFS{product}=="Palm Handheld*", KERNEL=="ttyUSB[13579]",

This line creates the dev/pilot symlink when the palm pilot gets inserted.

Output of the gnome-pilot crash

Comment 6 Igor Miletic 2007-03-25 18:37:58 UTC
This also (partially) fixed problem for me.
Only difference is that I did not have 10-visor.rules file. I add line to

Now I have problem syncing with evolution. Pilot applet just crashed. I am
attached error output from BugBuddy.

Comment 7 Igor Miletic 2007-04-14 17:30:26 UTC
As of few days ago, only change I needed to do to make Palm work with evolution
is Mads Villadsen fix (adding line BUS=="usb", SYSFS{product}=="Palm Handheld*",
KERNEL=="ttyUSB[13579]",SYMLINK+="pilot" to udev rules).

Can you please add this?

Comment 8 Ivana Varekova 2007-04-27 08:41:24 UTC
Please could you try to use pilot-link-0.12.2-1.fc7? 
It should fix your problem.

Comment 9 Igor Miletic 2007-05-01 12:24:54 UTC
Last version of the pilot-link is pilot-link-0.12.1-6.fc7, and this one works if
I add udev rule. Is there a place I can get pilot-link-0.12.2-1.fc7 from ?

Comment 10 Igor Miletic 2007-06-21 14:41:27 UTC
I think this bug can be closed now. 

Works here.
