The following list of PDA's are supported by the Linux USB-Visor module:
Handspring Visor (all)
Palm USB Devices (all)
Sony Clie (all)
To syncronize your Handspring Visor onto your linux computer, you need to configure linux to know how to do the low-level communication with your device, and then a a user-space program to do the actual communication with the device.
Many distibutions now come with kernels pre-configured with appropriate support. If you have such a distro, and do not wish to re-compile the kernel, then you can probably skip ahead to the Syncronziation Software section. The following is an incomplete list of distro's that have support pre-configured:
Mandrake 8.2 (or later)
Redhat 7.2 (or later)
Suse 8.0 (or later)
You may check if your distro already has support by running this command as root:
If the program printed any error messages, then you will need to re-compile the kernel with the approriate support. If nothing was printed, it means that it was successful, and your distro already provides support.
