What PDA?

I use MultiSync (http://multisync.sourceforge.net/compiling.shtml) and SynCE (http://synce.sourceforge.net/synce/) with my HP iPAQ.

It's a HP iPAQ too. If you have any tip or trick about these programs I'll appreciate if you share them :P

Thanks ;D

I don't remember any gottcha's in getting this working. I'm using RedHat Enterprise Linux 3.0 WS and I simply downloaded the sources for SynCE and MultiSync, followed their instructions for configuring/building/installing. It sync's fine with Evolution.

I'd be glad to assist here if you run into problems.

I'm synchronizing Lotus Notes and my iPAQ under Pylon. I'm running Evolution under KDE  (I have SuSE Desktop installed on this computer so it doesn't have Gnome) after the install of several (I mean SEVERAL) rpms and libs.

I don't really know if there's any other way. It was kind of tedious... :P

I'm thinking in post any news here. But I don't know if it will be something like "spam" or something haha :P Advise please.

bisses! :)

Please do. That will "add value" to this question and may help someone else later.

Are you installing from a source tarball or an rpm?

Does 'rpm -qa | grep popt' show the popt packages?

If 'rpm -q --list popt | grep libpopt' only shows:

/usr/lib/lippopt.so.1
/usr/lib/lippopt.so.1.0.0

that would explain the error when trying to install the the synce_multisync-plugin via an rpm package.

An rpm package installation only checks the rpm database for any needed files. It doesn't matter what's actually on disk.

I'd suggest that you remove any rpm packages for MultiSync & SynCE and build them from source. That will work with what's installed on your system rather than what was installed (as packages) on the system the rpm package was built on.
