Hi all,

I just joined this list because of this very problem.

I can not get my Palm IIIc to sync with FC4 via serial.

Same symptoms.

I did not try this yet, but pilot-xfer on it's own works perfectly, just
jpilot fails since I upgraded from FC3 to FC4. So I don't think my Palm
device is screwed up.

I am using and AMD processor to.

I tried compiling the CVS version if jpilot as suggested on this list
but using the pilot-link package from FC4 (since pilot-xfer works on the
commandline). No success. I am going to try the FC3 RPMs next. Thanks
for the hint.
