with OpenSuse 10.1 i had nice access to my PDA (running Windows CE 4.1).

I could copy files and get the PDA desktop to my X11 desktop
(similar to vnc).

I've used the tools synce, rapi and kcemirror to do this.

Now after upgrading to OpenSuse 10.2 all those tools have
disappeared, i can't access the PDA anymore.

What happened to those tools?
Are there some better tools bundled to 10.2?

I'm having the same problem. It looks like those tools were abandoned
for OpenSync. Though OpenSync has plugin for synce protocol, that, if
I understood correctly, still requires synce.

I've found out synce and synce-kde rpms for 10.2 in
Synce works OK (that is, I can manually connect to my PDA and browse
it with konqueror as rapip:/). But for some reason synce-kde does not
really work (raki crashes on me).
I'm now trying to re-compile from sources.

As a first try, i have compiled the complete subversion synce sources from today
for my other PDA (running Windows Mobile CE 5.1) using the description

The initial USB connect seems to work now after some troubles(it is a HP IPAQ 6910),
but then i get this error:

noty:~ # odccm
** ERROR **: Failed to connect to system bus: Failed to connect to socket /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: Connection refused

Has anybody a clue what the setup of dbus on OpenSUSE is?
What can i do?

Further i tried to compile kcemirror locally, but this
failed with
/usr/lib/gcc/i586-suse-linux/4.1.2/../../../../i586-suse-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lkdeprint

and kdeprint is not on the OpenSUSE DVD...
oi oi oi ... an endless story.

OpenSUSE is definitely not for normal home users
when using PDAs ... (and when using multi media ... just to have said it ;-)
