Tungsten-E problems with gnome-pilot on Fedora 7

I have a Tungsten E (Te) running PalmOS that I would like to sync with
Evolution using the gnome-pilot-2.0.15-5.fc7 package on a Fedora 7
system; however, I'm having difficulties.  First, I had to create
an /etc/udev/rules.d/10-palm.rules file with the following content:

BUS=="usb", SYSFS{product}=="Palm Handheld", KERNEL=="usbdev?.*", SYMLINK+="pilot",  MODE="0666"

See the following udev bug for more details.


When I attach the Te and press the hotsync button, then the /dev/pilot
device is created which is linked to:

0 crw------- 1 gk4 root 189, 129 2007-08-05 19:46 /dev/bus/usb/002/002

The command "/sbin/lsusb" returns:

Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0830:0060 Palm, Inc. Palm Tungsten T / Zire 71

The file /proc/bus/usb/devices contains:

T:  Bus=02 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=01 Cnt=01 Dev#=  2 Spd=12  MxCh= 0
D:  Ver= 1.00 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS=64 #Cfgs=  1
P:  Vendor=0830 ProdID=0060 Rev= 1.00
S:  Manufacturer=Palm, Inc.

S:  SerialNumber=PalmSN12345678
C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=c0 MxPwr=  2mA
I:* If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 4 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=00 Prot=00 Driver=visor

E:  Ad=82(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS=  64 Ivl=0ms
E:  Ad=02(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS=  64 Ivl=0ms

The command "/sbin/lsmod | grep usbserial" returns:

usbserial  35753  1 visor

When using gnome-pilot settings for the first time, then I set:

name: cradle
type: usb
timeout: 2
device: /dev/pilot
speed: 57600
owner: gk4
pda id: 500

However, the initial sync never returns and I must cancel the setup.

The command "/usr/bin/pilot-debugsh /dev/pilot" returns:

Unable to connect

The jpilot.i386 0:0.99.9-3.fc7 returns:

pi_bind error: /dev/pilot Invalid argument
Check your serial port and settings
Exiting with status SYNC_ERROR_BIND

Any suggestions?
