Hi David,

I've had this problem and solved it by opening the Pilot Settings
window, from Evolution's Tools menu, just before I sync. It seems the
gpilot daemon doesn't recognise the sysc call. If I do this, I sync
perfectly with USB.

I don't know if anyone else has had this experience. Is it worth telling

RH 8.0
pilot-link version 0.11.5
Evolution 1.2.1
Palm M125 OS 4.0.1
