I'm trying to deside in which ROM to stay. I've been moving back and foward from OPIE and GPE

Is there any way to sync OSX with OZ/GPE? At least copy the contacts from OSX to GPE.

Thanks

Export your contacts as a .vcf and import them that way. Not really a sync, but at least it will get them to your handheld.

I know I've done it before, I'm back to cacko, so I can't tell you exactly how I did it.

I'm not sure if this is a topic for a whole number thread or appropriate here. I have a mactel laptop so I guess this is applicable. I have tried pdaxrom, tkc 2.0a ROM, sharp roms, cacko hybrids (v1.0 and 2.0), cacko, sharp's 2.12 rom based on OZ, OZ/gpe, OZ/opie and a modied cacko(the download: http://www.wide-eye.de/downloads/z5500g.zip , the website/info:
http://www.linuxontour.de/modules/newbb/vi...=6726&forum=23). An important issue for me is connectivity. While I cannot yet sync, the sharp-based roms are the only ones that load on my mac as usb storage. The most stable and functional of the ROMS is the modified cacko. Everything works: Alarms, usb, word processor, etc. This particular distro has modified usb drivers and builtin async for faster sd card writes. The OZ ROMS are good, but not for hardcore pda usage. I need speed and functionality. OZ is fast, but lacks usb connectivity and the applications I need to function professionally. OPIE has problems with sound, which I need for alarms. gpe and the cacko hybrids lack handwriting recognition. GPE has Rosetta, but it did not work for me. The tkc ROM was great until my sd card popped out, and then it just stopped working. Each time I use a new ROM, I would end up going back to a cacko ROM. I eagerly look forward for progression on OZ. I would very much like to use it once the bugs are ironed out.

Interesting.
I'm giving a try to GPE but I feel it still lucks of funcionality and has been a bit bugy and unfrendly in some aspects. I feel that the first way of giving suport to a distro is by at least giving it a try so that's what I'm doing now. I'm in the point where my PDA demands more time that the one it may save me.
What I realy like of linux based PDA's is tha the time I spend on it at least I learn some linux which I find more usefull an intresting than learning PALM OS or Win CE.

I'll keep in mind your Cacko recomendation.

Think I got it . OPIE suports vCards 2.1 not 3.0. I had to convert my vCards to the previows version. You have to check 2.1 version in the addressbook preferences and export. Just in case I backuped all my cards before and exported without pictures
