Hey everyone. I was just wondering if anyone has had any luck syncing their blackberry with Fedora 11. I followed the how to but haven't had any luck.

I have been playing with this in Arch Linux and have thus far bombed out too. :( I dont much care as i run Vista as a dual boot but it would be nice to be able to do this...

I was able to get Barry Backup to work. In the end the software and the ability to backup my BlackBerry are totally worthless in my humble opinion. But at least it worked. I guess that's a step in the right direction. I haven't tried to restore a backup. There hasn't been a need and I'm not going to do it for the sake of testing.

I can get it close but for some reason the Blackberry group or member always tells me that the user is not configured. I would assume it's due tot eh configuration not saving.

I can never seem to get the editor to save the configuration discussed in the how to by erik.

No intelligent idea. Anything to do with groups? How about r/w permissions on certain files?

The group shows up when i use the --showgroups switch. My blackberry is recognized and I can write back and fourth using file transfers. I'm thinking teh editor in question is not saving the configuration file. i believe it pops with PICO or Nano however the ^O command doesn't seem to save the file.

Well once I found out that I wasn't saving the configuration file, I got a little closer. Of course now the pin isn't recognized.
