First, kudos to all who work so hard to make blag. I'm not quite sure why anyone would want to use any other distro. You have made using the computer fun again.

Now, on to the question. I teach at a progressive private school. I am setting up all our computers with blag. However, we all need to be able to sync our palm pliots with evolution. for the life of me, I haven't been able to make it happen. Does anyone have any suggestions? By the way, we all hook up our palm pilots via usb.

Also, is it possible to (reasonably easily) upgrade the kernel in 10000 to 2.6x ?

The community at the Sego Lily School thanks you!

Possible? Definitly. Easily? No.

Here are some links that may help you solve your problem:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Linux/Q_21161066.html (scroll down to the bottom of the page to see the answer)

http://www.jpilot.org/ (Seems to be good syncing software, i saw it recommended several times in my journey for links)

http://www.pilot-link.org//howto/ (Various howtos)

http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-HOWTO/PalmOS-HOWTO.html (pretty good howto)

That's all I can find for now...

For kernel 2.6 on blag10k, see this wiki page:


Also, for the Palm, you may have better luck with BLAG20k. I haven't used a palm for years, so I'm not sure. You could at least test it on one box.

Have fun,
