Description David Steckbeck 2007-08-20 23:56:00 EDT
Description of problem: Gnome-pilot won't sync even when pilot-xfer using
/dev/pilot works

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora 7 -

How reproducible: On a new install of F7 and on an upgrade. Press the hotsync
button, either with a config or a new config and nothing happens (expecting a
sync). running `pilot-xfer -p /dev/pilot -l' connects, I get the pleasant
sounding chimes, and a list of apps on my treo 700p

Steps to Reproduce:
1. on new or upgrade installation
2. add the required udev rules
3. use the initial sync setup screen and nothing happens
4. cancel the bad sync, restart it and type 'pilot-xfer -p /dev/pilot -l` at the
command prompt, and you'll get a list.
Actual results:
No workey, yet pilot-xfer works.

Expected results:
Expected it to sync.

Additional info:
This stuff worked fine in FC6
If I run gpilotd from the command line, the last line I see is "gpilotd-Message:
Using net TRUE". From seeing others' logs, I should see 'setting speed 57600' or
something like that, and a bunch of additional stuff...

I found some additional steps other's have tried, like adding my account to the
'uucp' group and changing around the udev rules. None of it has worked.

Is this problem still present on Fedora 8 Test 2 or later?

Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in
one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.

I didn't get a chance to try any Fedora 8 Test builds, but did try the full
release, and it's working now. Thanks!
