sinking feelin'

Hi,

I have had some problems syncing my ipaq with Arch system...

wondered if I need a udev rules or something for usb connection

serial is not working at all  :?  is there a way of listing connected serial devices ?

will check my BIOS just to make sure serial ports are active ;-)


Need to get Linux on me ipaq lol

Re: sinking feelin'

I use a custom udev rule to create a device node for my Windows Mobile device. What OS version does your iPaq use? Only 2002 an d 2003 are currently supported by synce. I would use a USB sync if possible, as it's easy to setup and very fast. Now, I'm not sure what sort of sync you are interested in, as synce only provides cab-install and basic file system access. You could try multisync (i think) to get evolution syncing.

If you want, I'll try and post my synce-cvs packages and my udev rules, when I get home.

Re: sinking feelin'

I have a ipaq 3970 ms pocket pc 1996-2001

Have just about managed to get to ipaq using synce packages from aur via usbserial

bootloader installed & works but thats where I got stuck

I wanted to load up GPE on ipaq but as far as I am aware you have to use serial connection, which so far I am unable to get working

device nodes are there .... ttyS0 - 2

using minicom but no luck yet

If I could install GPE via usb it would be easier

Are you running linux on your device ?

No, I'm running WM2003 smartphone edition. I can't really consider linux because of the cellphone hardware.

IIRC, you care correct that a serial connection is required to reflash the device. Using USB could leave you with a brick. Too bad my old iPaq fried or I would give linux a shot on it. It would have to be better than the MS software that comes standard. If nothing else, faster.
