AvantGo is back on Mac OS X for USB Palm devices
Authored by: schu on Oct 15, '03 02:02:44PM

this command "/bin/tcsh ./AvantGo" does not seem to do anything, I never get "listeneing to port" or "Please press hotsync"

I have tried all the other suggestions people have left.

Thanx

I had this same problem until I unplugged the USB HotSync cable from my TiBook and plugged it back in. I sometimes had to do this a couple of times. In addition, I had to do a "top" to get the pid (process id) of "malsync" and then I did a "kill -HUP {pid-of-malsync}". Then I hit HotSync again, and unplug/plug USB (if needed). HTH!

Two things, one is a basic tip and the other is a comment on this:

1.-You can easily do a "killall -HUP malsync" and not worry about the PID numbers. Or do "ps -auwx | grep malsync" which is much quicker than the "top" method.

2.-"-HUP" is useless in this context, as the malsync program quits after any KILL signal and DOES NOT seem to reload its configuration files (which is what "-HUP" supposedly does).

Well I got it to work - almost. It will connect, it will update device configuration, it will find updated web pages and then start loading them on my device, but it never finishes. Either the program crashes, or the sent/received just stops then it times out.

Have tried about ten times now.

I am using an NR70v ver 4 of Avantgo, on a dual G4 Tower.
