Description Pierre Francois 2006-05-16 11:51:41 EDT
Description of problem:
After upgrading from fc4 to fc5, pilot-link can no longer transmit or receive
files over an infrared link to my PDA (Palm m105).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start service irda (after a lot of work for getting it working without errors
messages in the output of dmesg and the /var/log/message file)
2. start command:
install-user -p /dev/ircomm0 -u 'Pierre Francois' -i 1041652016 
or any other command like pilot-xfer
3. Wait...
Actual results:
Nothing happens; no errors in log files

Expected results:
Syncing between PDA and laptop
