Hi out there!
I'm a newbie having a somewhat working setup where my phone and some
laptops are synchronized to my home server using the http server. The
problem is the home server itself.
The syncevolution server side uses a file backend. So what I want to do
is to synchronize an evolution datasource against a file backend on the
same machine. I have created a client configuration for the server which
is a clone of the working client setups. Trying to sync, I get various
errors depending on using the 'daemon=no' option or not. Occasionally,
using 'daemon=no' makes the sync works almost completely, but it still
fails in the very end.
A log is available on ftp://mumin.dnsalias.net/pub/local-sync-log.html.
Part of this is an embedded html file which seems to contain some
clues, at ftp://mumin.dnsalias.net/pub/local-sync-log.html.
Anyone who understands what's going on out there?
In the compatibility section on syncevolution's website, you wrote :

so I would like to talk about the Memotoo <https://www.memotoo.com/> server.
I didn't see any problems concerning the todos, memos, or addressbook
(just a few modifications during sync for the contacts phone numbers
A few days ago, I tried to synchronize my calendar that way, under
Debian Lenny :
syncml native client syncevolution (0.9.2+1.0beta2a-2)
N79 <-----------------> Memotoo <-------------------> Evolution (22.214.171.124-1)
It seems that there is a problem about detached recurrences. I read your
article on this subject, and to be fair, I'm not an expert, but I run
some tests on my workstation and here is what I found :
- a detached recurrence on the N79 is well synchronized with Memotoo.
There is no duplicate.
- a detached recurrence on the Memotoo is well synchronized with the
N79. There is no duplicate.
- a detached recurrence on Memotoo is duplicated on Evolution but not on
Memotoo, even after resync.
- a detached recurrence on Evolution is duplicated on Memotoo but not on
Evolution, even after resync.
I think it's a conflict problem but I don't know how to resolve it. From
what I've heard, it seems that the events modifications are not time
stamped, so syncevolution has no means to discover which one is to save
and which one should be deleted, so it creates duplicates not to loose
data. But I don't know. Actually, I almost never modify the same event
with the two clients before synchronizing. Maybe the events aren't the
same anyway, maybe it's because of syncevolution, or maybe evolution
(too old version ?).
It's a bit disturbing because I have a lot of professional meetings and
after each one I wrote systematically a description about it. I also
modify or cancel some regularly, which means I end with a lot of duplicates.
So I would be pleased if you help me (and maybe others) to solve this
problem. But I know you're a busy guy.
I've been using Evolution for years, initially on Red Hat, and now on
Ubuntu (2.6.32-22), Evolution (2.28.3). I am currently using a palm
phone (Centro) and syncing has been sort of OK with the pilot interface.
However, I plan on dumping the phone and picking up an iPhone later this
month. I am very interested in syncevolution and it's ability, or so it
states, to sync contact, tasks, memo and calendar with the iPhone.
I am very dependant on Evo for organizing...well...everything and need
it to be reflected on the hand-held device. I would be happy to conduct
testing and reporting any bugs/problems with the sync, either on my own,
or with instruction/direction from the development group. I would
really like to see this work well, as a good number of my colleagues and
friends have dumped Windows and gone to Ubuntu. The PIM and sync with
hand-held devices has been the biggest stumbling block for wide-spread
adoption by Windows users.

Does anybody have luck syncing with nokia series 40 phone (nokia 3500
for example) via bluetooth?
I'm using syncevolution 1.0 beta3.
I run syncevo-phone-config for first time and it could pick any
working configuration, however it could write following items:
I run it second time and it picked one config. It seems one config can
write and cant verify written items and other config
can read items.
With picked config I get this:
<li><i>[2010-05-06 09:14:32.504]</i> OBEX progress</li>
<li><i>[2010-05-06 09:14:32.544]</i> OBEX Transport: get header

I didn't mention SyncML support in 4.0, but access to the calendar.
