PDA Palm syncing via USB troubles

kernel messages indicates a detection of USB device plugged in:
usbserial.c: Handspring Visor / Treo / Palm 4.0 / Clié 4.x converter now disconnected from ttyUSB0
usbserial.c: Handspring Visor / Treo / Palm 4.0 / Clié 4.x converter now disconnected from ttyUSB1

does this mean hotplug is working?

but trying these devices  eg. '/dev/ttyUSB1'  under jpilot and the PDA and desktop do not connect

/dev/usb/hid
/dev/usb/tts
are empty folders

I thought I was running static dev system but could devfs still be around
and if so what are some entries I should add to
/etc/devfs/conf
?


Off to using Peanut and Slackware, no hard feelings but I need my CD to burn, PDA and scanner to connect and arch won't do it.

Re: PDA Palm syncing via USB troubles

Re: PDA Palm syncing via USB troubles

I assume you have permissions set up

chown -R <yourusername>.users /proc/bus/usb/<numbereddirectoryhere>

& in fstab

none  /proc/bus/usb  usbfs  defaults,mode=666   0 0

Usbview might help you tell if device is connected !

Re: PDA Palm syncing via USB troubles

ty

my default 0.6 fstab entry is different than yours

usbdevfs               /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs  defaults            0      0

all permissions under /procs/bus/usb are world readable, do they need to be writable as well?

I'm testing connecting the PDA USB cable to machine and using these devices
/dev/ttyUSB0
/dev/ttyUSB1
are they correctly named?


usbview does find the PDA

Re: PDA Palm syncing via USB troubles

I added these lines to devfs.conf to make it work with my main user (kaleph), otherwise it would only work with root.

REGISTER    ^usb/tts/1$    CFUNCTION GLOBAL mksymlink $devname pilot
REGISTER    ^usb/tts/.*    PERMISSIONS kaleph.users 0660
REGISTER    ^pilot$        PERMISSIONS kaleph.users 0660
UNREGISTER    ^usb/tts/1$    CFUNCTION GLOBAL unlink pilot

Dont forget to change kaleph to the name of your user, and hitting the hotsync button of your palm before telling the software (jpilot, evolution, etc) to hotsync, otherwise /dev/pilot will not exist.

Re: PDA Palm syncing via USB troubles

tried it.
no go

still stuck
usbview and /proc/bus/usb/devices
both find the Sony PDA

Syncing on device /dev/usb/pilot
or
Syncing on device /dev/tts/pilot

result in:

pi_bind Illegal seek
Check your serial port and settings
Exiting with status SYNC_ERROR_BIND
Finished

Re: PDA Palm syncing via USB troubles

also noted that the new [July 16th]
/etc/fstab
uses usbfs and not not usbdevfs.
After changing fstab, bootup reports
usbfs is busy
and sync still does not work.

Re: PDA Palm syncing via USB troubles

thanks, /dev/ttyUSB0 is what I've been mainly using as root
