This guide describes working with a PocketPC using libsynCE.  Attaching now.

Quick cosmetic changes.
Comment 3 Sven Vermeulen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-10-30 21:22:42 UTC
BTW, current draft available at, but far from finished yet.
Comment 4 Sven Vermeulen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-11-21 19:44:09 UTC
I didn't find anything useful at this moment (synce seems to be the only thing that kind-of works); I'll keep the document in draft until synce is stabilized. I'll keep this bug open as well - if a synce stabilisation bug exists or is made, be sure to have this bug depend on it.
Comment 5 Sven Vermeulen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-01-31 12:07:33 UTC
Aha, found a bug that might help me focus on when synce becomes stable. But, it might also require some documentation updates as the new version has quite some changes.

See bug #178807

Hi swift,

0.12 is as stable as it's been!  You should be able to rip this guide from the SynCE wiki at is pretty outdated!
Comment 7 Sven Vermeulen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-11-11 09:43:07 UTC
Damn, must have missed this bugzilla e-mail. Will look at it asap!
Comment 8 nm (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-08-30 02:35:47 UTC
Nothing we can really do here. The drafts are too old and have no maintainers. Also, the doc linked in this bug's comments requires using overlays, which is not acceptable for our official documentation.

Closing as CANTFIX, I guess. I may pull the pda-guide.xml draft too, since it relies on ~arch packages. And it's still incomplete 5 years later.
