How to use it ?

You can download the .deb or the sources from the download section.

To be able to mount your pocketPC, it must be connected to your linux box. it means that the connection is etablished (your pocketPC has an IP address, you should use synce-serial-start) and is connected to the synce daemon (non-root user has started dccm).

You should create a directory to mount your filesystem:

# mkdir /mnt/synce

You should add following lines in /etc/fstab to allow non-root user (owner of dccm) to mount the pocketPC filesystem on /mnt/synce:

none /mnt/synce cefs rw,user,noauto,codadev=/dev/cfs0 0 0

then ask kernel to load CODA (if it is a module):

# modprobe coda

then, you (as non-root user, owner of dccm) can mount the pocketPC filesystem:

lvivier@imac:~$ mount /mnt/synce/

SynCE FS using "/dev/cfs0" (CODA v3)

and you can use all files of the pocketPC as they were stored in a local filesystem:

lvivier@imac:~$ find /mnt/synce/
/mnt/synce/Carte de stockage
/mnt/synce/Carte de stockage/My Documents
/mnt/synce/Carte de stockage/My Documents/Sauvegarde compl¨te.dbe
