    Default read/write permissions failed on cradle (dev/pilot)


    I'm attempting to sync pc with a Palm Vx. Gnome desktop, OpenSuse 11.1,
    Gnome-pilot, Settings in the config tool gives pop up error:
    "read/write permissions failed on cradle (dev/pilot) Check permissions
    on the device and retry". Permissions on the Pilot Vx or user/group
    permissions and how would I change them and where? Installed a clean
    11.1 and I'm much impressed. Still learning but I've found that I can
    figure out nearly anything I've come across so far with few exceptions
    by digging around in the forums and manuals. This is likely easy for
    someone and things are working so well on 4 of my 5 office 11.1 boxes
    that I hate to screw around with them. Can anyone help?

    Okay. I found this for my Palm Vx serial connection:
    1. get root (su)
    2. chmod a+wrx /dev/ttyS0
    3. exit

    Permission problem resolved. Sorry to put it out there when I could
    easily read the manual. Just wasn't persistent enough.
