Treo 650 and Slackware 10.1


I am having some difficulty getting my KPilot to recognize my Treo 650. When I plug it in to my computer and press the HotSync button, `dmesg` tells me the following:
Code:
usb 3-3: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 3
visor 3-3:1.0: Handspring Visor / Palm OS converter detected
usb 3-3: Handspring Visor / Palm OS converter now attached to ttyUSB0
usb 3-3: Handspring Visor / Palm OS converter now attached to ttyUSB1
In KPilot if I choose to let it automaticlly detect my settings, it just times out. So I went into my /dev folder after I pressed the HotSync button and I didn't see a ttyUSB0 or a ttyUSB1 file. Thanks for any help.

Maybe there are in sub directories in /dev ?

What is your output with :
find /dev -name "ttyUSB0"

I get no results. I did a search on is and I found it in the /sys directory, which doesn't seem right.

Has anyone had any success connecting the Treo 650 to Slack with Infra-red (IrDA)?
A simple walk-through for doing this would be great, as would any help.

You can't find the device in /dev. You are using a 2.6 series kernel. This would seem to indicate that the solution lies in configuring UDEV properly. Also, there may not be a device created until you press the hotsync button. Try pressing the hotsync button, then searching for the device.

These may be helpful:

To get it working under USB, I used the following:

/etc/udev/rules.d/10-visor.rules
Code:
BUS="usb", SYSFS{product}="Palm Handheld*", KERNEL="ttyUSB[13579]", NAME="pilot", GROUP="uucp", MODE="0660"
This fixed some quirkiness that was occurring during hotsyncs -- Identifying User would result in a an error.

I'm still trying to get it working under IRDA.
