Description Adalbert Prokop 2007-06-08 22:21:25 UTC
I can't synchronize my Handspring Visor Deluxe with JPilot. I used this
combination with every previous Fedora version.

The connection seems to be resetted at the time I push the "sychronize" button
in JPilot. pilot-xfer works fine, showing the contents of my Visor (-l) and
fetching some random files (-f). Both programs, pilot-xfer and jpilot, use
/dev/pilot which is a symlink to ttyUSB1. I use a USB docking station.
I've tried to access /dev/ttyUSB1 directly from JPilot with the same result.

The message pane withing JPilot shows
 Syncing on device /dev/ttyUSB1
 Press the HotSync button now
But Visor shows a message about a resetted connection.

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

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Push sync button on the docking station
2. Push sync button in JPilot
3. Immediately read a message about a resetted connection on Visor's display

Comment 1 Adalbert Prokop 2007-06-16 21:47:36 UTC
Okay, it seems it was my fault and not a bug.
Today I browsed through JPilot's settings once again and looked closer to the
serial rate option. It was set to 9600. Since it also says "Does not affect USB"
I just ignored it.

But JPilot magically synchronized again after I've set this value to H460800.
The essence: JPilot is not buggy, but the description is highly misleading.
