It might be using the files in ~/.gnome/gnome-pilot.d
If you're not using gnome-pilot (Evolution conduits, gnome-pim
conduits), you can just rename (or, if you prefer to live dangerously,
remove) this directory.
The alternative would be to reinstall the Evolution conduits in order
use the GUI to disable them, but that's probably overkill in your case.
You'll probably also need to kill gpilotd if it's still running.

Mark and Eric,
Thanks for the help. I followed a combination of your advices. I
followed Eric's advice to let Red Carpet do the uninstall. (Easy once
you figure it out, but not very intuitive to find.) And I followed
Mark's advice to uninstall pilot-link.ximian and gnome-pilot (couldn't
find evolution-pilot in Red Carpet).
Doing so allowed me to reinstall j-pilot and the non-ximian pilot-link,
and allowing me to use Evolution as an MUA with jpilot as my PIM, but I
still have a problem. It may be related to evolution-pilot, but I
don't think so.
As hoped, neither the Evolution install, nor the partial uninstall,
affected the configuration files in my home directory. Jpilot displays
my palm data from the last sync and other preferences. That's the
good news. The bad news is that some of the evolution syncing
configuration files also remain, preventing me from doing a sync. You
see jpilot/pilot-link are trying to use the now removed evolution
conduits instead of their own.
Can either of you (or anyone else on the list) help me with finding and
repairing this configuration setting?
Thanks for the continuing help.

At this point, reinstalling (e.g.) jpilot should only require removal
of evolution-pilot (and newer pilot-link and gnome-pilot) rather than
evolution. This means you can have jpilot (built against older
pilot-link) and evolution (albeit without conduits) installed on the

In Red Carpet, first select the channel that contains the package
you want to remove (i.e. Ximian Desktop, or wherever Evolution is).
Then click on the "Remove" button on the upper-right (the icon is
a box with an arrow going UP). From there you can see a list of
your installed packages and choose those you wish to remove.
Also, I'll bet you could simply choose to re-install (using Red
Carpet) jpilot etc., and just like when you installed Evolution in
the first place, it would warn you that certain packages need to be
removed. Just tell it to go ahead, and it should remove Evolution

I thought I'd give evolution a try, being unsatisfied with balsa.
Seems that I need the software that it removed (jpilot & pilot
link) more than I need evolution.
I haven't been able to find uninstall instructions. I have a Red
Hat RPM system and Red Carpet seems to have been installed. Can
anyone point me to uninstall instructions, please?
