Description of problem:
Attemping to synch a Handspring Visor via a USB cradle fails. When trying
desktop tools the operation simply hangs. Trying 'pilot-xfer --list' (hit
hot sync button then run pilot-xfer) results in an error message of "wierd
packet" and "Error accepting data from /dev/pilot".
/dev/usb/ttyUSB0 & 1 are owned by the user and /dev/usb/ttyUSB1 is sym
linked to /dev/pilot. The hardware is believed to all be good and would
synch properly when the system ran 7.1 with 2.4.3-12 kernel. Neither the
2.4.7-10 nor the 2.4.9-7 kernel allow synch to occur. Synch also fails
whether the RedHat desktop or Ximian desktop is used.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Press the Hotsync button
2.execute pilot-xfer -p /dev/usb/ttyUSB1 --list
3.Meditate upon error messages
Actual Results: chaos> pilot-xfer -p /dev/usb/ttyUSB1 --list
Please press the HotSync button now...
Error accepting data on /dev/usb/ttyUSB1
pi_accept: Input/output error
Expected Results: The contents of the Handspring should have been returned.
please try the new pilot-link-0.9.5-9 in rawhide if it works
Red Hat Linux and Red Hat Powertools are currently no longer supported by Red

However, we do want to make sure that nothing important slips through the
cracks. If, in fact, these issues are not resolved in a current Fedora Core
