Things That Make Adam Want To Stab Himself In The Face, pt. 1

eGroupware synchronization. It has this trick of getting so frustratingly close to working. Using syncevolution with my n900, I can get to the point that the sync operation from the phone happily reports success and shows 89 contacts transferred to the server…where they apparently wind up in /dev/null, because when I log in to the web front end with the same user, those 89 contacts sure don’t show up in the contacts view. Where did they go? Nooooobody knows…

    hi Adam, I know nothing about this egroupware stuff but what I can say is that syncing my n900 gave me lots of headaches too ! I only managed to do it with syncml-ds-tool over usb, no way to sync it over bluetooth with syncml-ds-tool or syncevolution though I can send files to the phone via bluetooth so not a pairing issue…
