Re: [Evolution] PDA with Evo & others on OpenSUSE 10.2

I am using openSUSE 10.2 and Evolution 2.8.2  I have not been able to
get my Palm TX to sync at all.  Crashes, resets the Palm, sends gpilotd
off into CPU loops.  Very ugly.

I have heard that syncs work with Evo 2.10 on openSuse 10.2, but since
the openSuse repositories don't have it, I have been stymied.

Actually, I tried to upgrade to Evo 2.10 from the
site, and completely hosed my Gnome environment.  I had to reinstall
everything to work it out.  It was probably something I did, but I can't
figure out what.

Hi all,

thanx for the response. 

Robert, which way does the Treo 650 sync? Bluetooth, WLan, USB, and what
Synch Program does it use?

I can get a Palm Treo 680 quite cheaply. Does anyone know if it also
works well with OpenSUSE 10.2 (10.3 in October!) & Evolution? The Treo
650 is not available anymore I think (well not from Palm or Amazon). The
newer models (500 & 750) are using Windows Mobile 5 now. The 680 seems
to be the last with Palm OS version (5.4.9 Garnet). Has Palm given up on
the Palm OS?

Shrikant, I am only working with Linux now. I still have an iPAQ with
Windows, but it will be re-flashed with a Linux version as soon as I
have a Palm. The windows OS's can not sync with any Linux mail clients
as far as I could find out. That's one reason I am moving to Palm with
Palm OS.

If Palm is giving up on the Palm OS, what other PDA's can be used as
mobile phone and PDA, syncing with OpenSUSE 10.2 (.3!)

I am glad somebody started this thread. I had a query few months back
similar to this. 

I am using O2 (Windows Mobile) and unable to sync with evolution.
Somebody suggested me a solution but it required good amount of tech
knowledge to make it work. 

It would be nice if Evolution offers built-in support for common PDAs
and Windows Mobile OS.

The only thing that produces a reproducible crash is when syncing notes.
Calendar, memo and contacts work perfectly.

Hi all,

who uses which PDA with Evo? I need a PDA combined with a GSM Mobile in
Germany's mobile phone networks, connected to OpenSUSE 10.2 for the
synchronisation. NO M$-WinCE based system, I am just dumping my HP iPAQ
with WinCE 3 (It's docking bay connector is intermittent). ActiveSync
never worked properly!
