Description Jens Knutson 2007-08-01 00:31:27 UTC
Description of problem:
If I sync my Treo, I cannot sync it again until I reboot or restart HAL.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Sync Treo 600 with gnome-pilot
2. Try to sync again
3. Receive a "connection timed out" error

Additional info:

This only seems to have started in the last week or so?  I couldn't pin it down
to a day, but this wasn't always a problem, and I haven't made any system
changes other than running updates.

Also, I'm not sure if HAL is really "at fault" here, but since restarting that
"fixes" it, that's what I'm filing this against.

Comment 1 Jens Knutson 2007-08-05 07:14:38 UTC
Installing the HAL from hughsie's repo
(http://people.freedesktop.org/~hughsient/fedora/7/i386/) fixed this, though
that doesn't help most people.

Comment 2 Joshua Rosen 2007-09-12 16:05:05 UTC
Restarting the HAL daemon doesn't help me at all. I can't get my Treo 700p to
sync at all under 64 bit F7. Syncing worked fine on FC6.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.

Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:

The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-06-17 02:02:43 UTC
Fedora 7 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on June 13, 2008. 
Fedora 7 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not 
receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we 
are closing this bug. 

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version 
of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
