Unhappy gpilot fails to synchronise todo or calendar


I'm running gpilot (2.0.12) to synchronise my Palm Tungsten T2, which has worked until now. Now I can no longer synchronise to do's or calendar.

Here is a log of the messages gpilotd produces:

I can't see any obvious cause of the problem. Has anyone else had this problem, or does anyone know how to get more detailed messages so I can trace the cause?

Thnx.

I'm having the same problem

I have the same problem on FC3 when syncing to a Treo 650. Contacts
and Todo sync ok (although I recently had a sync that generated many
blank Todo entries. Syncing from desktop to pilot fixed the Todo
problem which may or may not have happened at the same time as the
Calendar sync broke. I didn't notice). In any event, Calendar sync
used to work in FC3 with this device. I don't get any error messages
in Evolution or on the device and both say hotsync was successful.
Nothing too helpful in /var/log/messages.

evolution 2.0.2-3
gnome-pilot-2.0.12-4
gnome-pilot-conduits-2.0.12-3

My gpilotd output for the calendar conduit looks like this:

ecalconduit-Message: ---------------------------------------------------------
ecalconduit-Message: pre_sync: Calendar Conduit v.0.1.6
ecalconduit-Message: Using timezone: /softwarestudio.org/Olson_20011030_5/America/New_York
(gpilotd:6476): gpilotd-WARNING **: Synchronization failed!

Not very helpful. Did you ever make any progress with this?

Regards,
Joe

Joe,

I'm currently running FC3 too. My problems started around the time I upgraded to Evolution 2.0.2 but don't know if thats related or just coincidence. I'm currently scanning all my logs for any clue as to what the reason for the failure is but no luck so far. I've tried doing a one-time synchronise from my dekstop to my T2 but that doesn't work either.

I've just posted my problem to the gnome-pilot mailing list and am waiting for any replies.

Do you know if there is any way to increase the detail level of messages issued by gpilot?

Regards,
Paul.

I was finally able to get my Evolution Calendar to hotsync with my Treo
650. It looks like there was some corruption in my calendar.ics that
was breaking the conduit. For the record, I don't really know what I'm
doing. If you try my suggestion, BE SURE TO BACK UP your .evolution
directory or at least the directories under .evolution (calendar, etc.)
and your Palm pilot. That being said,

Kill evo from the command line:
evolution --force-shutdown

open /home/youruser/.evolution/calendar/local/system/calendar.ics with
your favorite text editor. I found these bogus entries at the end:

Notice they are missing some fields ("SUMMARY") and the DTSTART and
DTEND is 20271230T000000. Making sure you only delete between the
proper BEGIN and END values, delete these entries.

Open evolution, start gpilotd if it's not already running and try a
hotsync.

If it still doesn't work, you may need to delete
calendar.ics-pilot-sync-evolution-calendar-xxxxx.db and
pilot-map-calendar-xxxx.xml from the same folder. Also delete
CalendarDB-PDa and DatebookDB on your Palm device and do a "Copy to
Pilot". Hope this helps.

Treo 600 fails to sync with evolution after upgrade from 2.0.2 to 2.0.3

Hi,

I am having some problems trying to syncing my address book and calendar after I have upgraded my evolution from 2.0.2 to 2.0.3. The error says "unknown conduit", this error comes when the Treo 600 is trying to syncronise the calendar. I am not sure if anyone out there has the same problem?

Thanks.

Question

Hi,
same problem here on evolution 2.2.3 on FC4 with Palm T5. i checked the calendar.ics file, it looks health. I want to try follow steps:

If it still doesn't work, you may need to delete
calendar.ics-pilot-sync-evolution-calendar-xxxxx.db and
pilot-map-calendar-xxxx.xml from the same folder. Also delete
CalendarDB-PDa and DatebookDB on your Palm device and do a "Copy to
Pilot". Hope this helps.

hi all,

i cannot sync calendar and adresses using evolution 2.4.1 under ubuntu 5.10.
the sync terminates without exception or warning, but no data is transferred from palm to evolution:

the following log shows the output of a sync with only address- and calendar-conduit enabled (both copy from palm):

gpilotd-Message: Using net TRUE
gpilotd-Message: setting PILOTRATE=115200

(gpilotd:14906): gpilotd-WARNING **: Es kann keine Verbindung zu Pilot hergestellt werden.

gpilotd-Message: HotSync-Knopf gedrückt, Pilot wird synchronisiert

(gpilotd:14906): gpilotd-WARNING **: pi_accept_to: timeout was 40 secs
gpilotd-Message: Beenden (SIGINT empfangen)

none of these conduits seems to work. memo- and todo-conduits are ok.
