I'm looking for a SyncML server, preferably a self-hosted one so that
not only can I keep my phone & computers in sync, but also maintain
privacy, features, etc. I had been trying to use libsyncml's server and
client, but the client does not work with some hosts. (i.e. GooSync)
I found out that SyncEvolution has a server, so I tried setting it up,
but I'm stuck. Following the guide at the wiki, I can get to step 6.
First off, the Arch Linux AUR package doesn't seem to install
syncevo-dbus-server, but it is compiled. (The packaging script just calls
./configure, make, & make install.) Running it manually always produces
an error - if the system (not session) dbus server is running, it
returns "server already running?" and if the system dbus server is not
running, it says it is "ready to run" but also says the connection setup
for connman failed. Even running it as root causes the same error.
For step 7, the script is already installed globally to /usr/bin, I
guess that doesn't matter too much.
For step 8, how do I get a client to sync? Especially a test client. I
am trying to test the configurations by doing a SyncEvolution <->
SyncEvolution sync. (I plan on 'stretching' that so that my server &
desktop are in sync instead of just on the local machine.)
The later steps, it seems, would make more sense after I understand the
above points, as the `syncevolution --configure` calls are simple
enough. I would like a series of commands that configure a client, as
one would to configure SyncEvolution for ScheduleWorld (but I don't use
Thanks a lot!
