I installed the updated pilot-link but still can't sync as user. I think something has changed since VL6 and I really don't know how to get the Clie working as user. I did sync when I started jpilot as root after a few fruitless tries. But when I try as user I get this:
Code:
pi_bind error: /dev/ttyUSB1 Permission denied
Check your serial port and settings
Exiting with status SYNC_ERROR_BIND
Finished.

I had changed permissions to read-write for everyone before I ran jpilot.

In VL6 you had to add this to a file in /etc/udev/rules.d:
KERNEL=="ttyUSB[13579]", SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{product}=="Palm Handheld",  SYMLINK+="pilot", GROUP="users", OPTIONS+="last_rule
"

It seems udev has changed in VL7 and this does not seem to work. So far it hasn't and I'm wondering how to get the darn Clie to work as user. This tip was posted in the VL Forum a long time ago:
"There is something down stream that is changing the owner and group of /dev/pilot -> /dev/ttyUSB1 -> tts/USB1 to root.  I never did find where it was happening. " The 05-local.rules in /etc/udev/rules.d is supposed to take care of that but it does not.

Does anyone know how to get a Clie or Palm Pilot working for a user under VL7? I have to run jpilot as root in order to see the information synced with my Clie.

then i tried the latest ralink official driver (2011_0407_RT3070_RT3370_RT5370_RT5372_Linux_STA_V2.5.0.bz2),

http://www.ralinktech.com/support.php?s=2

any solution to get rt3370 functional?any open sourced driver available?

I had to jump through some hoops to get an ra3070 based usb wifi adapter working on my system:

Add these lines to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf:
blacklist rt2800usb
blacklist rt2870sta

Find the the modified code here:
http://cincinnatix.com/vectorlinux/nightflier/rt3070_driver_vl7.tar.gz

Untar the archive, change into the directory
"2011_0107_RT3070_RT3370_Linux_STA_v2.5.0.1_DPO"
run "make" and "make install", reboot and test.

Please let us know if it works for you.

Thanks!Nightflier,

followed tips on"http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1748136",
 edited "/os/linux/usb_main_dev.c " , added "MODULE_LICENSE("GPL");" in the following line

----------------------
#include "rt_config.h"


// Following information will be show when you run 'modinfo'
// *** If you have a solution for the bug in current version of driver, please mail to me.
// Otherwise post to forum in ralinktech's web site(www.ralinktech.com) and let all users help you. ***

2011_0407_RT3070_RT3370_RT5370_RT5372_Linux_STA_V2.5.0.2 driver compiled succefully,
---------------
make&&make install
modprobe rt5370sta
----------------
reboot,
go to wicd preferences settings, change wireless interface as:ra0    , scan , wifi network gets normal again,...no need editing blacklist.conf at all...as v250 's latest driver from ralink web..

Bonjour!

tried the latest vlnvidia driver on "http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.0/kernels/drivers/vlnvidia-7.0-x86-1vl70.txz", installed,run "vxconf", TNT2 was found, chose "expert" mode , while legacy propertorir nvidia driver still can't compile successffully, then switched to NV open driverand it prompted some error (due to newer Xorg version than 1.4.1 on VL7rc1,) but ignoring should be fine just went straight to mcedit"/etc/X11/xorg.conf", changed driver as "nv" , reboot..TNT2 works now although it's 2D, sufficient for daily work and Mp4 video watch abit sluggy although so far..

Should I try latest kernel 2.6.38.6 to test nvidia legacy driver installation?

Bonjour!Uelsk8s,

Thanks!
Tried new kernel driver,nvidia legacy driver installation went smmothly,but once reboot,nvidia driver failed loading...
here's the same error when trying to load Xorg:
----------------------------------------------------------
dlopen: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.so: undefined symbol: miTranslateRegion
------------------------------------------------------------

looks like the old nvidia driver is not compatible with new xorg.
we will have to wait to see if nvidia will patch it more.  Undecided

I made an upgrade of all upgradables in one sweep.

Abiword is now properly opening .doc files with tables. Grin

Some new programs were added like Dragon Player which does not want
to play any videos. Anyhow I need another player like a new hole in the head.
I see as well Juk and would not know what to do with it.

In exmh I still can't see and therefore open any mails.

Just checking printing and yes it looks like my previous printing setup is gone. Sad
Will report on this when sorted out.
Was easy, cups was not started on boot. Will watch it on next boot. All printers working now.

Just trying to install SMPEG for VL7-RC1 from the repo and encounter message

Quote
root:# slapt-get --install smpeg
Reading Package Lists...Done
Excluding smpeg, use --ignore-dep to override
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  smpeg: Depends: vlati >= 7.0
The following packages have been EXCLUDED:
  smpeg
0 upgraded, 0 reinstalled, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove, 1 not upgraded.

Done

smpeg don't need vlati as a dependency...maybe someone can fix that...  Grin

VL7 RC1 installed beautifully with one exception. It didn't recognize my existing user in the /home partition. I created new users. How can I safely get access to my original user?

The latest is VL7 RC2.1. Maybe you can try it?

Best to get the latest 2.1 as hata_ph mentioned,,, link is in his quote above. However, you can run the vasm and "create" your old user, make sure to use the username exactly as you had it. When you are finished you can logout, and log into your username and it should be as it was.
