    When my wife gets home with her Zire 71, I'll check it and see if it works.
    My daughter's plain cheapy Zire m150 syncs just fine with Debian Woody. She
    hasn't tried to install any software with it. I would hope that the
    protocols for the two are the same.

    There is a proper sequence of events that must occur for syncing to work.
    Once you do it right once, it works every time. I did have to compile a
    kernel with all the proper usb modules loaded. ( I do monolithic rather than
    modular.)

    Happy to report that the Zire 71 synced with Debian Woody just fine. You must
    have the kpilot daemon running first, then plug in the cradle the Zire 71,
    wait two seconds and press Hot Sync and all should then work.

    They took the fourth amendment and I was quiet because I didn't deal drugs
    When they took the sixth amendment, I was quiet because I was innocent.
    When they took the second amendment, I was quiet because I didn't own a gun
    Now they've taken the first amendment, and I can say nothing about it.

    Thank you very much for having checked.
    That's more or less what I've tried and failed :-)
    Can you tell me what modules you have loaded (manually or not ?), and
    where your /dev/pilot points to ?

    Default SOLVED !!!(Re: Palm Zire 71 & Debian)

    Okay, according to what I've found on Google (comp.sys.palmtops
    2003-05-26 23:44:38 PST), a 2.4.20 kernel does not automatically links
    visor and usbserial. [Stewart, which kernel do you use?]

    The steps for a Zire 71 are :
    - be sure /dev/ttyUSB0 and /dev/ttyUSB1 exist (/dev/pilot is only a link
    to ttyUSB1) (it's more complicated for devfs, I don't use it)
    - chmod a+rw /dev:ttyUSB*

    The kernel must support USB, and especially USB serial and the Visor
    module. The key is to tell usbserial which

    (provided usbcore, usb-ohci or usb-uhci are already loaded) :
    insmod usbserial vendor=0x830 product=0x60
    insmod visor

    "tail /var/log/kern.log" tells if it was successfull (opens ttyUSB0 and
    1). Then I could launch (as a normal user) kpilot and make a backup. (But
    I don't think I will Kpilot...)

    I'll add the two modules in /etc/modules for the next reboot.
