Hi Paul,

I have tried to sort out the gpilotd and also kpilot, as the korganizer 
has come a long way forward.  But neither Evo-pliot nor kpilot would 
sync.  I fired up jpilot and it worked beautifully.  I ran through my 
contacts on the desktop and deleted the duplicates, then I synched with 
the Pilot and all of the duplicates in the Palm were deleted as well.  I 
added some Calendar events and tasks and added an extra address, and 
synched again, fantastic -- perfect, I even caught the fact that it was 
updating AvantGo (something I do not use due to a lack of local 
channels).  So I guess the question needs to be asked " What can the 
Evo-pilot authors steal from jpilot?" cos it works and Evo does not.

I have been a loyal and vigorous advocate of Evoution since before it 
was 1.0, I think that 1.2 was excellent, 1.4.6 not too shabby, but I 
have had more difficulties with Evo 2 than just the pilot deal.  Maybe 
by 2.5 it will all be OK again.  In the meantime, for my business sake I 
will have to use jpilot as my scheduling tool, and Evo or Mozilla as my 
mail client.

I will second this

I have no problem using jpilot or command line 'pilot-xfer /dev/pilot'
but gpilotd is absolutely deaf to communications on FC3
