Connecting serial palm to USB via converter help needed
Moved up to a Dell Inspiron 300m laptop running fedora core 2 (now). Next step is getting my Palm 3C which worked fine via serial on my old laptop to the new one. Having no serial ports I bought a serial to usb converter and at this stage.
Looking at /messages file I see the following on plug in of the device;
Jun 21 14:28:10 localhost kernel: usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using addre ss 4
Jun 21 14:28:10 localhost kernel: usbserial 2-1:1.0: PL-2303 converter detected
Jun 21 14:28:10 localhost kernel: usb 2-1: PL-2303 converter now attached to tty USB0 (or usb/tts/0 for devfs)
There is no pilot so I created one using ln -s TTYUSB0 pilot and setting up propper ownership.
On the inital gnome-pilot section I chose USB as the connection and /dev/pilot (as there is no /dev/ttyUSB) yet on the inital sync there is no connection (and nothing written to log file)
Any help is appreciated.
