Full Version: How To Sync Sl5500 With Suse 9.1?

Hi,

I have searched the Google Groups but only found two related threads. They are
helpless to my problem. I can't find anything on this forum. Please help.

I am not able to sync my Sharp Zaurus SL-5500,ROM v2.38 with my SuSE
9.1 with Qtopia Desktop 1.7.0.

Do I need to install usbdnet? Where can I download and how to install?

Whenever I start qtopiadesktop from console, I get this error message:

"initEnvironment() Invalid TimeZone (null)"

The Sync button and the sync options in the menu are disabled.

I tried the :Trouble-shooting USB connections" in QtopiaDesktop
manual:

1.Ensure the kernel service "USBD Network (Encapsulated) Host-to-Host
Link" is installed (as a module, this is "usbdnet").

2.Ensure the USB networking provided by this module is configued, with
"ifconfig usb0 192.168.129.200 netmask 255.255.255.255".

3.Ensure there is a route to the PDA on the USB network, with "route
add -host 192.168.129.201 usb0".

I tried the above without the usbdnet installed and dmesg gives the
following:

usb 1-1: new full speed USB device using address 4
usb 1-1: Product: SL Series
usb 1-1: Manufacturer: Sharp
usb0: register usbnet at usb-0000:00:02.0-1, Sharp Zaurus SL-5x00
usbcore: registered new driver usbnet
usb 1-1: USB disconnect, address 4
usb0: unregister usbnet usb-0000:00:02.0-1, Sharp Zaurus SL-5x00
usb 1-1: new full speed USB device using address 5
usb 1-1: Product: SL Series
usb 1-1: Manufacturer: Sharp
usb0: register usbnet at usb-0000:00:02.0-1, Sharp Zaurus SL-5x00
usb0: no IPv6 routers present

It looks like SuSE 9.1 recognized SL5500. But the connection could not be established.

Please help.

Thank you.

Try this howto. Nothing has changed for 9.1 or 9.2 as far as the Z is concerned. It is still detected as a modem. As long as you don't upgrade your rom you should be fine. Personally I would say ditch Qtopia desktop and check out the embedded-KDE-pims at pi-sync.net.

Why mess with your Zaurus when there is a perfect tool out there for you that allows synchronization with Linux.
