Description of problem:
It appears that gnome-pilot won't play nice wth others - pigs/breaks USB port or
perhaps something wrong with usbserial of visor mods? After installing
Gnome-pilot - even uninstalling/full reboot will not cure.
This could be a problem with one of 4 mods that need to work for visor
keywords: pi_bind Illegal seek
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install jpilot configure get working with usb visor
2. install gnome-pilot and configure - it failed to follow conduit settings and
would not backup.
4- now jpilot fails to work
I checked permissions of /dev/ttyUSB1 they did'nt change.
jpilot returns: pi_bind Illegal seek
Check your serial port and settings
exiting with status -10
Running usbview fixes the problem.
my hunch is gnome-pilot dirties up the usb mods in sime way that only gets reset
with usb view.
Possibly a problem with jpilot -, but seeing that gnome-pilot didn't work, I
would look there first. jpilot.org site is down at this writing.
You still had gpilotd running. gpilotd takes control of the tty device and so
you can't use other programs such as jpilot to access it while gpilotd is
running. Design decision in how gnome-pilot works
NO gpilotd was killed
My definition of a bug includes preventing other programs from working. I don't
think I am alone.
gpilotd ends up in your gnome session and will restart as you restart gnome.
It's a design decision by upstream, and you'll have to convince them to change
it if you want it changed. It would be impossible to maintain a patch of that
magnitude without completely forking the project.
