AvantGo is back on Mac OS X for USB Palm devices
Authored by: the_webmaestro on Oct 15, '03 03:24:19PM

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).
