Re: [Evolution] Palm syncing

Thanks for your reply Nathan.

Version numbers:
gnome-pilot version 2.0.10
pilot-link 0.11.8
evolution 2.6

output from gpilotd:
** Message: Pilot name -> RoolsPilot
** Message: Pilot id   -> 1000
** Message: Pilot username -> Rools
** Message: Pilot creation/rom = 1061809021/86061056
** Message: Cradle Type -> USB
** Message: cradle device name -> Cradle
** Message: cradle device name -> /dev/tts/USB1
** Message: Pilot Speed  -> 57600
** Message: Timeout -> 2
gpilotd-Message: Activating object OAFIID:GNOME_Pilot_Daemon
** Message: pilot = RoolsPilot

It seems that the timeout is extremely low if you recommend 100.
How do it change it?

This isn't an Evolution problem, but a gnome-pilot problem.

That being said, can you tell us the following so we can help you better?
- Distribution
- Version of gnome-pilot
- Version of pilot-link (pilot-xfer and other programs)
- Version of evolution (though I don't think that really matters at this point)

Also, can you run gpilotd in a console and show the output?

One common problem: if Timeout is set too low, then pi_bind() fails, and therefore you could get
stuck in the Identifying User stage. Setting the Timeout to 100 seems to work for many people
(this is a known bug).

I'm currently using a Tungsten E have been able to get gnome-pilot to sync with it reliably using
gp 2.0.13 and pilot-link 0.11.8.
