The Treo 90 works fine for me on Sid. Here's a checklist of items.
modules must be loaded
2.4.x kernels: usbcore, usb-uhci, usbserial, visor
2.6.x kernels: usbcore, uhci-hcd, usbserial, visor
/dev/pilot (or whatever you like) linked to
/dev/ttyUSB1 (not ttyUSB0 !)
root:dialout owns /dev/ttyUSB1
make sure you're a member of group dialout
and the group can write to both ttyUSB0 and ttyUSB1
kpilot (or other program)
configure to use /dev/pilot (or whatever you configured above)
load all modules manually (auto config/load covered below)
plug in hotsync cable to computer and Treo
start kpilot (or other program)
push hotsync button on cable
everything should work!
auto configuring/module loading
/etc/usbmgr/vendor/082d/* is for handspring
/etc/usbmgr/vendor/082d/0100/* is for some older model
mkdir /etc/usbmgr/vendor/082d/0200 for treo
cp contents of .../0100 to .../0200
search for visor
copy line "vendor 0x82d product 0x100 module usbserial, visor"
and edit the copy to "vendor 0x82d product 0x200 module usbserial, visor"
usbmgr will now auto load the modules when the
hotsync button is pressed
I haven't gotten hotplug figured out, but if you know how it works
(I don't yet) it should follow from the above info
