(p.s. this should be made much more prevalent on the wiki i.e. bold
and red font and above the command (so that people don't run the
command first only to notice it after it's too late!))
I agree, and I had already thought about making this more visible. But I
didn't know how to change the markup of this paragraph.
Mike, do you know how I can turn a <p> into a warning? Is there
something like <p class="warning">?
... warning. This seems very counter-intuitive: I need to *delete*
my contacts, events, tasks etc. before I can synch my phone?! Is there
absolutely no way of avoiding this?
You can try without --advance. But then there is no guarantee that the
resulting config really is correct, because that depends on sending and
receiving test data.
But note that even then a backup of your data on the phone is a good
idea. We've had one report here where a Nokia phone apparently wiped out
all its data during the initial sync even though SyncEvolution didn't
ask for that.
Meanwhile, I will try to configure my phone manually (and referring
another Sony template in the wiki).
That is always better than running the config test tool. Another
prominent paragraph should be that the tool really is the last resort
and brute-force method of finding a working config.
