    Syncing Your BlackBerry on Linux

    Advertisement



    Linux users who also use a BlackBerry now have an option for managing their BlackBerry directly from Linux.

    Barry is an Open Source application that will allow synchronization, backup, restore and program management for BlackBerry devices. Barry is primarily developed on Linux, but is intended as a cross platform library and application set, targetting Linux, BSD, 32/64bit, and big/little endian systems.

    I would suggest better way of doing almost everything with blackbery from linux:
    this is very nice video:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMNpI3RUwo8
    this is software preparation:
    http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/2008.1_Synchronization
    http://www.synce.org/moin/SynceTools/SynceKpm
    http://www.opensync.org/wiki/kitchensync

    for less experienced: install the latest mandriva. For more experienced, update system (read software requirements), compile software

    but there still opensync based and the only 2 ways of getting an opensync setup with bb are either via funambol/syncml which uses large amount of data traffic which for me is very expensive annoyingly, or requires barry to work which it used to with my 7100 based on os 4.2 or 4.1 something, but i cant get it to detect my 8120 based on 4.3 even after i upated the udev script as it had a different device id to any others so far. even the cvs version wouldnt detect after i eventually found all its dependancies to build. anyone had any luck or am i forced to reboot to windows to backup...

    I did a search within Add/Remove Programs and just installed Barry. I have been using my device as a hard drive this whole time to communicate with it, so I'm very pleased to find a Linux friendly Desktop Manager. Thanks for sharing. Hayden!
