Description Jan "Yenya" Kasprzak 2005-12-19 14:36:22 EST
Description of problem:
Palm Tungsten T5 - /dev/pilot symlink is not created when the device
is hot-plugged.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. plug in the Palm Tungsten T5
2. push the HotSync button
Actual results:
symlink /dev/pilot is not created

Expected results:
symlink /dev/pilot -> ttyUSB1 should be created.

Additional info:
Tungsten T5 has not the SYSFS{product} field "Palm Handheld", as the
corresponding line in /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.conf expects. It has "palmOne
Handheld" product name. I suggest adding the following line after the line 47 of

KERNEL=="ttyUSB*", SYSFS{product}=="palmOne Handheld*", SYMLINK+="pilot"

also using ubuntu, in this distro i use:
BUS=="usb", SYSFS{product}=="Palm Handheld*|Handspring *", KERNEL=="ttyUSB*", NAME="ttyUSB%n", SYMLINK="pilot", GROUP="usb", MODE="0666"

[+] (in ubuntu)
sudo gedit /usr/share/gnome-pilot/devices.xml

Scroll down the file and locate "your" device. Well, in my case, my device wasn't present at all so I had to insert it:

<!-- Palm Tungsten T -->
<device vendor_id="0830" product_id="0060" />
<!-- palmOne Handheld -->
<device vendor_id="0830" product_id="0061" />

[!!!] there could also be another entry for id 0061 -> check and comment out ..
