Palm Problems

</td>
weather: sunny
mood: *meurf*
music: Chopin - Romantic Piano

I got Dmitri set up. The Palm is Russian and his name is Dmitri Mendeleev =) I ran PilotSync and did the Initial Sync. At first, I set the $PILOTRATE to 115200.

This succeeded and it grabbed the user info from the Palm.

I unpacked PalmLJ-1.2.0.prc

I su'ed to root and did
% ln -s /dev/sttyS0 /dev/pilot; chmod 777 /dev/sttyS0; export PILOTRATE=115200

On the Palm, I went System->Prefs->Direct Serial->Details and set the Speed to 115200.

Then, still as root, I cd'ed to where the .prc was and did
% pilot-xfer -i PalmLJ-1.2.0.prc

It asked me to press the HotSync button, so I did.

Then, as the Palm showed "Identifying User", my console would spit up either one of these errors:

    Error accepting data on /dev/pilot
    pi_accept: Connection timed out

    or

    Wrong packet type on queue

I tried reducing the speed to 9600 in all three places and still got the same errors.

*sigh* I'm going to deal with some snail mail.

There's probably an option in the GNOME control center, but kill 970 should do in a pinch.

Re:
gpilotd --help didn't tell me anything useful (the only option that made sense didn't shut it down).

I did a kill -3, so it wasn't attached to ttyS0 anymore. I tried the pilot-xfer again, but I still get "wrong packet type".

=P Meh... what's the ETA on Handhelj again? =}

Hmm, strange. Try running fuser -v /dev/pilot to see if anything else has it open.

Handhelj is coming along. I'm working on mood support now, I'd like to get logins and user management done by the end of the weekend. Still needs userpic support (and gif, jpeg, png libraries), posting, entry saving, conduits...
