Hello, I have an att tilt and for my main O.S I have been running gentoo. I want to link my phone with my computer, so I can get some goals accomplished. Goals: Contact management, Wireless(which is on the phone and is not working with windows mobile 6.0 currently, I think this has to do with the security I am running in my house.), Synchronization(my goal is to get my phone to sync to Thunderbird, and then I can sync that to my google), sms, and last but not least a working phone. I Have tons of other features I have going on my current set up, but I lay out these goals because I am not able to get my phone to work with gentoo. I have looked at synce but I am having issue with it. The details are here:http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/pda-guide.xml. But for some reason the vdccm command. The connection manager for SynCE is not found, I tried many different packages, and even tried different managers, but still no luck. My question is should I continue to fight with synCE, or would it be better to just try to get linux on my phone, and go from there ? Perhaps theres anther option? I will be willing to write my won code if needed. Any advice helps, Thanks .
