Comment 1 Jack Stewart 2003-01-09 17:43:06 UTC
I've also encountered the same problem where the connection to the Palm 
appears to be working just fine through pilot-link and gpilot but there
is no mechanism to define Conduits for Ximian. It seems that RH8.0 is 
missing a gcontrol package that allows you to make these definitions.

Comment 2 Ivana Varekova 2006-07-31 13:40:45 UTC
Could you please try to reproduce this problem with the devel version of
pilot-link (pilot-link-0.11.8-16).

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2006-10-18 16:38:35 UTC
Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at
