[RHEL4] Pilot instructions are confusing and unhelpful
Last modified: 2008-02-03 11:32:57 EST
Description of problem:
The instructions for setting up and using one's Palm Pilot with Evolution are
confusing, unhelpful, and often just plain wrong.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to "Help", then to "Synchronizing Your Handheld Device", then "Enabling
2. See how it claims you can just do a chmod on /dev/ttyUSB* to make it happy.
Find this interesting, since you _actually_ have to create a
"/etc/udev/rules.d/10-visor.rules" file, as per instructions in
http://pilot-link.org/README.usb (or something similar)
3. Go to "Selecting Conduits", and see how it references Control Center. The
actual thing to do is go to Evo's Tools, Pilot Settings section. (If you go
before its set up and working, this will call the first time wizard. Otherwise,
you will have tabs, one of which is 'conduits')
This is also a problem on FC4. It is also not a regression.
Evolution 2.0.2 is only being updated for security issues. Closing as WONTFIX.
