    SOLVED

    Did some more searching and found I had to manually run
    Code:
    /opt/Palm/novacom/novacomd &
    before running novaterm. Leaving this here for others to benefit from.


    Hey guys - I am having some serious issues not being able to connect after installing novaterm.

    I followed the guidelines on palm's development page, put the phone into dev mode, and it refuses to connect to the phone.


    I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 32 bit- these are the exact steps I have taken.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre
    (after setting up the sources in the rep)

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install virtualbox-3.0
    and after downloading the deb files,
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i palm-sdk_1.3.5-svn234138-sdk117-pho368_i386.deb
    sudo dpkg -i palm-novacom_1.0.46_i386.deb
    I am simply getting
    Code:
    ryan@TehLaptop:~$ sudo novaterm 
    failed to connect to server
    
    ryan@TehLaptop:~$ novaterm 
    failed to connect to server
    no matter what I do - I have restarted both the laptop and the phone countless times... so... am I being dense?!

    btw before people ask - YES I'm sure it's in dev mode, YES I'm sure I hit "Just charge"
