Sync Palm Zire 31 with KPilot on SuSE 10.0


I have a Palm Zire 31, and a Windows XP/SuSE 10.0 dual boot. My Palm runs Palm OS 5. My problem is the fact that I can't get the Palm to sync with Kpilot. The closest I've gotten to a sync is "device link ready" -- but then the hotsync connection timed out on my Palm and the sync never took place. Thus, no data has ever actually been transferred. I'm wondering if this is a well-known flaw with a fix, or a problem specific to my Palm and/or my box . . .

I have done this successfully in the past, although I don't use Suse anymore. You can't just hit the hotsync button on the Palm, you also have to then hit the hotsync button in kpilot, before the palm hotsync operation times out. The problem is because the palm device node does not get created with Udev until you hit hotsync, so consequently kpilot doesn't recognize the Palm until you hit hotsync. So...hit hotsync on the Palm first, then hit hotsync in kpilot and it should work.

Yeah, it's a little different than the standard "windows" method, but works. Hasn't quit yet...knock on wood...
