I'd be very appreciative if someone would talk me through a syncing problem
using JPilot with SUSE 8.0. I had been using JPilot quite successfully with
Mandrake 8.1, but now that I've switched to SUSE, I can't get my Handspring
Visor to sync.
My Handspring software is 3Com, version 3.0.1. On my Linux box I'm presently
JPilot launches O.K., but when I click on the sync button and then push the
Visor cradle button, I get a beep from the CPU, but nothing happens. Same if
I push the cradle button first and then click the sync button in the window.
I used to have trouble syncing occasionally with the Mandrake 8.1, but found
that resetting the Visor would do the trick. Resetting the Visor doesn't
help now either.
I tried installing the newer version of JPilot (0.99.2-1) via a Slackware RPM,
but couldn't, because I can't find a file it depends on: libcrypto.so.0.
So, I've decided to try to make the JPilot 0.99-266 work.
Could someone talk me through this? I'm a newbie, so if you give me command
line help, please make it very explicit and assume no prior knowledge.
Thanks in advance,
