Has anyone had any luck using pilot-link to sync JPilot to a
Palm device via the USB? I'm trying to sync my Handspring Visor
and it just doesn't seem to be noticing it. I have the following
in my /dev/usbd.conf file:
First you shouldn't be using usbd.conf.  You should be using
devd.conf and devfs.rules.

Disable usbd.

Add to devd.conf:
attach 0 {
        device-name "ugen[0-9]+";
        match "vendor" "0x082d";
        match "product" "0x0100";
        match "release" "0x0100";
        action "/usr/local/sbin/ $device-name";

Setup devfs.rules if you have yet to do it:

Add your user to the operator group or change the mode to 0666
below. Add to devfs.rules:
add path 'ugen*' group operator
add path 'ugen*' mode 0660

In /usr/local/sbin/
# run command ie. (sync)
/usr/bin/su $JPILOT_USER -c "$COMMAND"
Thanks, this seems to work a little better.  Now, when I hit the
Hot Sync button on the cradle, I get the feedback that there's a
connection and it says "Identifying user" on the Visor, but it just
hangs there and eventually gives up. If I comment out the action
and try it from the commandline, pilot-xfer says " Listening for
incoming connection on usb:/dev/ugen0... ". It seems to me that
both are waiting for the other to initiate something. ugen0 doesn't
get created until I hit the HotSync button, but the pilot-link
stuff seems to be waiting for that to happen again?
You'll need to install the user:
# install pilot-link username
COMMAND=`echo /usr/local/bin/install-user -p $PILOTPORT -u $JPILOT_USER -i 1001`

I thought it might be something like this, so I played quite a bit last
night trying to get this command to work, but still no joy in mudville.
I replaced the jpilot-sync COMMAND line with the install-user one, but it
still does the same thing. I press the hot sync button, I get the confirmation
that a connection was made from the Visor, but both ends just sit there at
that point.

I feel like I'm ever so close and am just missing one tweak to push it
over into usability.

BTW, what is the 'uvisor' driver for? Should I be trying to use this one
instead of the 'ugen', which is the generic interface?
