I'll second that. KPilot, being a front-end, is another separate issue, which
proves a bit tricky at times. gpilot on Ubuntu was not any better either,
but I could still get all my data backed up reliably and very, very rapidly.
I achieved connectivity in both Ubuntu and SuSE straight 'out of the box'.
To my suprise, I was /not/ ending up with annoying error/warning prompts
that cannot be suppressed or their disappearance timeout extended -- a
reference to Palm Desktop where this behaviour cannot be latered as it is
/not/ Open Source. I ditched Palm Desktop after 3+ years of use and this
saved me plenty of time. I can't say "and hassle" unfortunately, so learn
from my mistakes and follow the links to the HOWTO.
