I have had success using my patch from last November and a borrowed Sony
Clie  (my own palm is a venerable Palm V with serial cradle, so I can't
check current status right now).  Some people have reported success with
unpatched gnome-pilot using ppp ('modem sync') connections.

I agree that with the growing prevalence of wireless connections,
netsync should be a useful and reliable alternative to the continual
problems with usb and kernel bugs and device IDs.  I don't think it's a
lot of work to fix the gnome-pilot end of things -- maybe I'll dust off
my earlier work on this and get something reliable.

In the meantime, if you feel like testing the posted patch, that would
be useful.  I don't remember getting any feedback, either positive or


mcdavey pobox   You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving
.com          today.  They left a little note on the windscreen, it said
              'Parking Fine.'  So that was nice.

I have downloaded the patch mentioned but I cannot re-compile the src RPMS. I get the following error when running "rpmbuild -ba":

I am using Fedora Core 4 with all updates and no strange repos, can you give me any clues to help get it compiled and then I can get testing.
