Full Version: ROM's and Linux

Which ROM's will sync with Linux, the last time I read, one of the lastest Sharp ROM's would not sync with Linux. So I'm looking for a good stable ROM that will sync up!

Any ROM with Opie on it will sync up via Multisync . OpenZaurus comes with Opie. Sharp ROMS can have Opie installed on them. I currently sync my Z with Multisync to evolution without problems. If you search the forums you can find a thread on this subject.
So the latest Sharp Rom for the SL-5500 will sync with Linux w/out a problem right?
The short answer is no.

Any of the DTM PIM applications (that's all the new Sharp PIM apps) will not work with Linux at the moment. My suggestion is that you use the Opie PIMs to sync with Linux for maximum compatibility. That's what I've been using for the last 7 months and it works well.

I am looking at moving to KO/Pi at some point, but not sure if it is ready yet.
