Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 87839
Evolution and gpilot computer lock up
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of problem:
When synching evolution and my palm using the gpilot connector I get an entire
system lock up.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm -qa | grep -i pilot && rpm -q evolution
It will synch the first time. I see that the gpilotd process is running and
evolution is running. As soon as I press the hotsync button, lock up.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open evolution and mount palm in cradle.
2. Go to Tools -> Pilot Settings to get the gpilotd process started.
3. Press hot sync button then wait.
4. Hot sync works and then I press it again, complete lock up. ("un-ping-able")
To hot sync properly.
What type of pilot? When it locks up, do the keyboard LEDs blink?
It is a Palm m130.
No computer activity at all. No lights on keyboard.
Same issue with a Handspring Visor Pro, except that, since the very first
syncing ever, the lockup occurs every time now. Hard lock as well, no keyboard
light toggling, unpingable.
I also have jpilot-0.99.2-11 installed, if it matters. Otherwise, list is same
Running gpilotd manually works for me.
