    Default Synce problem - only partially working

    I am trying to connect PDA via Synce to Linux and simply cannot get through.
    I tried with odccm and now going through OpenSuse installation and installed as suggested synce packages:

    Code:
     zypper install synce-hal rra-tools libopensync-plugin-legacy
     zypper install rapi2-tools
     zypper install kde4-kcemirror
     zypper install kde4-kio_rapip
     zypper install synce-kde
    I have the plugins:
    Code:
    # msynctool --listplugins
    Available plugins:
    file-sync
    synce-opensync-plugin
    and I cannot connect. When I run synce-kmp it does not detect device at all.
    It cries about odccm
    Code:
    ~> Running dataserver
    running the GUI Part
    Initializing DataServer
    odccm is NOT running!!
    I cannot install odccm for it conflicts with synce-hal

    When I cradle the device and try to see log with pls
    Code:
    ~> pls
    ** Message: Hal reports no devices connected
    ** Message: Odccm is not running, ignoring
    pls: Could not find configuration at path '(Default)'
    Seems nothing works.... but on the other hand it does connect:

    Now I am completely lost.
    I mainly want to copy files across and be able to access the external network.
    I saw on forums some guys had success, I still have not found the solution.

    Thanks for any suggestion.
    I am running KDE 4.3.0
    OpenSuse 11.0 with kernel 2.6.25.20-0.1-default

    Better idea, replace it with a more controllable one.

    I'm having the same problem too.

    dmesg shows the device connected.
    pls says HAL reports no devices connected???
    Running synce-kpm in CLI gives

    I notice that you installed quite a few different app than what I did. I only installed the synce-kpm (including the dependencies) from the suse/synce repo and also the rapi2-tools.

    I don't know where to go from here. Information seems spread all over the place and most is old.

    I have installed synce-kpm. In "www.synce.org/moins/SynceInstallation/OpenSuse/..." I've read, that there is a bug in openSUSE 11.2 Opensynce python plugin. They recommended me to install Version 0.22-154.1 as of 04.01.2010, what I've done (but a Version of October 2010). During installation I got the message:
    YaST got signal 11 at YCP file PackageInstallation.ycp:143
    /sbin/yast2: Zeile 454: 23243 Speicherzugriffsfehler $ybindir/y2base $module "$@" "$SELECTED_GUI" $Y2_GEOMETRY $Y2UI_ARGS

    What can I do? Can anyone help me?
