synce-hal - Daemon to maintain a connection to Windows Mobile devices via hal… more info»
synce-hal --------- Synce-hal is a connection framework and dccm-implementation for Windows Mobile devices that integrates with HAL. Please visit the SynCE website for more information: http://www.synce.org/ To use this package, you will require at least version 0.11 of the core synce libraries and tools. For usb connections, most devices should be autodetected, if yours is not please inform the synce project and we'll fix it ! Both WM5/6 and older style devices are fully supported. If you want to connect WM5/6 over rndis (advanced network functionality), the rndis_host module in the kernel is reasonable from 2.6.24 or 2.6.26, depending on the distribution. Otherwise you will need to install the usb-rndis-lite modules. Rndis connections will attempt to use dhcp, only falling back to a static configuration if that is unsuccessful. Configuration ------------- Defaults should be adequate for most uses. An optional configuration file will be accessed at $sysconfdir/synce-hal.conf, an example of which can be found in the etc directory. The most useful item is 'loglevel'. FreeBSD ------- The majority of development has been with Linux, however FreeBSD does seem to work. The detection rules are not as refined however. Bluetooth --------- Wireless interfaces are a little trickier over hal. There is an experimental framework, that can be enabled by a configure option, which has shown some success. Please see the README in the bluetooth directory. Bug reports ----------- If you find you have problems, before reporting them can you please increase the debugging output level to the logs, using the configuration file.
