This page is not yet finished and needs to be updated.
These instructions are untested, and are aimed at Debian Lenny or newer for devices with Windows Mobile 5 or newer.
The installation consists of two parts, the kernel driver and the rest.
Since the updated kernel driver will not be installed through a package, this needs to be downloaded and installed manually. This is done in the following way: * download the following tarball:
* Extract and install the driver in the following way:
$ tar zxf usb-rndis-lite-0.11.tar.gz $ cd usb-rndis-lite-0.11/ $ make $ sudo ./clean.sh $ sudo make install $ cd ..
Installing the rest
Get the core libraries
sudo apt-get install odccm librra-tools librapi2-tools
SynCE only provides the code to "speak" to a Windows Mobile device. OpenSync is used to actually sync things.
To install opensync just
sudo apt-get install opensync-plugin-evolution opensync-plugin-synce multisync-tools
Note that you can use opensync-plugin-kdepim instead of evolution. There is no Thunderbird support.
