Hi

Have just acquired Palm Tungsten T (since my girlfriend upgraded to a Treo). Tried using JPilot to sync with it... nothing doing. When you plug the cradle in & press HotSync on the Palm I wa expecting it to show up in vl-hot... but no. Have exhausted my google-fu experimenting with hotplug etc etc. So far all I have got it this:

When you click on Hotsync on the Palm it shows up temporarily in lsusb:
root:# lsusb
Bus 1 Device 4: ID 0830:0060 Palm, Inc. Palm Tungsten T / Zire 71
Bus 1 Device 3: ID 058f:6362 Alcor Micro Corp.
Bus 1 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
Bus 1 Device 2: ID 1241:1177 Belkin F8E842-DL Mouse
Bus 2 Device 1: ID 0000:0000

However, nothing changes in vl-hot, and after only a short while the Palm gives up trying to sync, and disconnects, and disappears from lsusb. I did also try upgrading pilot-link manually from the tarball, but it wouldn't even configure, bailing out with the mysterious claim that the C compiler couldn't create executables. Any suggestions gratefully appreciated!

TIA

Richard

All better now... I finally read through and carefuly followed step-by-step instructions in

pilot-link-0.12.3/doc/README.usb

...which were linked to from the pilot-link home page, and which worked for the 0.11.8 that comes with VL SoHo 5.8.

Thanks for your help!
