I used yum to install openobex (+ devel), bluez stuff (+devel), gob2,
libsigc++ (+ devel). After that I downloaded the latest gsmlib
(snapshot) and patched it using a tip I found out there. Also downloaded
the latest gnome-phone-manager and applied a second patch, also found on
the net after an extensive search... Finally I fetched the latest
snapshot of multisync 0.82, compiled multisync, irmcsync and

I can mail you the patched source if you like.

After everything was properly installed I started bluetooth on my
laptop, paired it with the phone and I was ready. I had to delete all
old entries in the phone calendar before I could get it to work! You
also have to start a new addressbook in Evolution before this will work.

The only problem I've seen so far is that the phones addressbook is not
being updated with the entries from Evolution, but the ones in the phone
(manually entered) sync up with evolution nicely! The multisync log says
that all entries are synced ok, but as I say; Not from Evolution to the
phone when it comes to addresses. The calendar works fine, though! All
entries in the phone goes to Evolution and all the Evolution initiated
entries goes correctly into the phone. Alarms etc set up in Evolution
triggers the phones alarms correctly as well.

The gnome-phone-manager (SMS) works like a charm  :-)
