I assume it's called visor.o, yeah, the module's insmod.

0.11.8 is what I've got.

I pressed hotsync, then executed:
pilot-xfer -p /dev/ttyUSB0 -l # it want's the port before the -l option
No go. I see: Listening to port: /dev/ttyUSB0
Please press the Hotsync button now....
Then the palm returns the connection error. :(

I did press the hotsync on the cradle first.
