PostPosted: Tue 02 Jan 2007, 18:42    Post_subject:  Is there a dotpup package for Jpilot (puppy 2.12)?  

I've found a .pup package for Jpilot at:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=2863&highlight=palm&start=15

and
http://noforum.de/dotpups/libreadline-so-4.pup

but after installing on puppy 2.12 and run "jpilot" at command line, I'm having following error:

removing stale pidfile
*** glibc detected *** free(): invalid pointer: 0x0810c0e8 ***
Aborted

Thanks for any help!

I just compiled the latest cvs version. I'll make a dotpup so you can test it out. Give me a little bit and I'll post it.

Jpilot 0.99.9 cvs 2007-01-02 & Pilot-link 0.12.1

Jpilot depends on pilot-link so install both packages.

I have no way to test it since I don't have a palm pilot. The gui comes up just fine though.

I've installed both .pup's but I'm having same error as before Sad :

*** glibc detected *** free(): invalid pointer: 0x0810c0e8 ***
Aborted

I do not know if this is relevant but I'm using Icewm as window manager.

Jpilot is an application to synchronize the PALM data with computer.

More details at:
www.jpilot.org

Success!

I got my Sony Clie (PEG-SJ20/G) to sync with Jpilot under Puppy 2.13! (Sorry kkpity, I haven't tried under Puppy 2.12 yet.)

I still need to do some testing and narrow down why or how, but here's a quick breakdown of what I did:

1. Ran the two jpilot dotpups plinej gave (thanks, plinej).
2. Opened up a terminal and typed in the following lines:
Code:
modprobe usbserial
modprobe visor
/bin/mknod /dev/ttyUSB0 c 188 0
/bin/mknod /dev/ttyUSB1 c 188 1
/bin/chmod 0666 /dev/ttyUSB?

3. Ran jpilot and, in File->Preferences->Settings, set Serial Port to: "/dev/ttyUSB1"

It works!

Notes:
1. plinej's dotpups got the jpilot GUI running nicely (I think I got this far before when MU packaged something similar), but I was still getting the pi_bind error. I dragged&dropped jpilot onto my desktop anyway. Then I looked around on the net and found references to the command lines mentioned in step 2, above.
2. The suggestions to do the "modprobe" and the "/bin/mknod" I found in two different entries (thanks, Google). In fact, the writer of the "/bin/mknod" lines suggested to place the lines in a script like this (so it could be run at will - I suppose, everytime one boots into Puppy?):
Code:
#! /bin/sh
/bin/mknod /dev/ttyUSB0 c 188 0
/bin/mknod /dev/ttyUSB1 c 188 1
/bin/chmod 0666 /dev/ttyUSB?

3. I found I also needed to do this "modprobe" thing to get jpilot to sync so I added the two modprobe lines into the script above. In fact, I edited the jpilot on my desktop so it looked like this:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
modprobe usbserial
modprobe visor
# /bin/mknod /dev/ttyUSB0 c 188 0
# /bin/mknod /dev/ttyUSB1 c 188 1
# /bin/chmod 0666 /dev/ttyUSB?
jpilot &


I got the synching to work late last night and, although elated, I was already in a thickening brain-fog of sleepiness. I do remember rebooting at least once, clicking on jpilot on my desktop and getting sync to work!

I'm finally migrating to Puppy2!

Maybe someone can explain and streamline how the whole thing works. I really didn't know what I was doing; I felt like a bunch of monkeys typing Shakespeare, but hey, ACT I's done. Very Happy

Cheers.

Likewise ... and it happens when I'm in icewm or jwm, using Puppy 2.14. Also, system indicates there's no such animal as usbserial or visor when I go to modprobe. Related perhaps? <<scratches head>>
