Handspring will not hotsync


hello,

I am new to mandrake 9.2 download edition ( running the KDE desktop ) and I can not seem to get my handspring to hotsync with KPilot. This is the hotsync log after I try:

13:21:36 Trying to open device...
13:21:36 Device link ready.
13:21:36 Checking last PC...
13:21:36 KPilot 4.3.10 (BRANCH) HotSync starting...

13:21:36 No Files to install
13:21:36 End of HotSync

13:21:37 HotSync Completed.
13:21:39 Pilot device /dev/pilot doesn't exist. Assuming the device uses DevFS.
13:21:40 Trying to open device...
13:21:40 Could not open device: /dev/pilot (will retry)

I would appreciate any help anybody might be able to offer

What is the connection your palmtop uses? My palmtop's hotsync cable goes into the COM1 port so I just made /dev/pilot a link to /dev/ttyS0... I am using pilotlink (console-based) and it works great.

Got it: check this page: http://pilot-link.org/README.usb .

It turns out that KPilot uses pilot-link as its back-end so this is related to your problem.
