I recently purchased a Palm Treo 755p. One of the first things I did was to plug it into my Linux machine to try the syncing capabilities, since Linux distributions (I am currently using Ubuntu 7.04) tend to support Palm devices pretty well. But, when I plugged it in, I discovered that it was not recognized by the kernel. So, I figured out what was needed to make it function:
I recently set up an Ubuntu server that needed to access a MSSQL database. The php5-sybase package sort of worked (the queries appeared to work, but data was missing). So, I set out to build some .deb packages with MSSQL support built in.
