I just got a new treo 700p phone. I was able to sync with my treo 600 via
kpilot however I cannot sync with the treo 100p.

I can get kpilot to find the device but I always get this:

08:15:53 Trying to open device /dev/ttyUSB1...
08:15:53 Device link ready.
08:16:00 Unable to read system information from Pilot


There are some very good tools to use.
the dlpsh utility can give you some information as will usbview.

You may possibly need to patch the kernel. Apparently, the Palm devices are
hard coded in:
You may beed to add #define PALM_TREO_700_ID in visor.h and
.driver_info = (kernel_ulong_t)&palm_os_4_probe },
in visor.c, then rebuild that driver.


I spoke to someone who has your answer, it follows ...

No, they don't need to rebuild the kernel. A few years back I added a
kernel patch to solve this very problem. Its in kernels 2.4, and 2.6.
If it is indeed a new product ID then my patch will be of use.

In /etc/modules.conf you can specify the vendor and product IDs for the
visor module. I have these coded for the T5 for when the T5 was not
hard coded into the kernel yet. Their IDs will differ.

options visor vendor=0x830 product=0x61
