one last question
Authored by: markpaterson on Nov 03, '02 01:11:55PM

sorry, but i'd better ask one last question while this hint is still recent enough for people to answer it. here goes...

I have set up Bluetooth on my Mac for the T68i. When I get the Tungsten T, do I need to change any of the System Preferences, such as Bluetooth, Sharing, Network, etc, before I begin this hint?

10.2 or 10.1.5?
Authored by: fireproof on Nov 03, '02 09:16:52PM

I'm running OS X 10.2.1 which has been updated from 10.1.5.

Bluetooth was originally installed under 10.1.5 (and in fact will not re-install under 10.2 because the system is "too new").

I've followed your instructions very closely, but I think I'm having trouble related to Bluetooth on the Mac -- the Palm part of it seems OK, except I can't connect...

Running the "ps aux | grep pppd" shows that the PPP daemon never starts up; instead there's a lot of this stuff in the system logs: Nov 3 20:02:27 matt-mc crashdump: Crash report written to: /Users/matthew/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/OBEXAgent.crash.log Nov 3 20:02:31 matt-mc /usr/libexec/fix_prebinding: /Applications/Extras/Bluetooth/ could not be launched prebound. Nov 3 20:02:31 matt-mc /usr/libexec/fix_prebinding: /Applications/Extras/Bluetooth/ couldn't be prebound in the past, and probably can't be prebound now.

Is the OBEXAgent somehow connected to Bluetooth? Anyone have any idea what the trouble might be?

PS - when I try to start the pppd manually (using /usr/sbin/pppd /dev/tty.Bluetooth-PDA-Sync 115200) This shows up in the logs: Nov 3 20:04:01 matt-mc pppd[451]: pppd 2.4.0 started by matthew, uid 0 Nov 3 20:04:01 matt-mc pppd[451]: Failed to open /dev/tty.Bluetooth-PDA-Sync: Device busy Nov 3 20:04:01 matt-mc pppd[451]: Exit. Yeargh!
