Two things to note about SuSE 9.1. First off, there is no /dev/pilot
device. So you have to create one by doing one of these as root "ln -s
/dev/ttyUSB0 /dev/pilot". If you do that and setup jpilot properly you
can indeed get jpilot to work (although I wish I could figure out how to
sync AvantGo under jpilot under SuSE 9.1.

No. It's a bug in gpilotd as implemented in SuSE 9.1. Jpilot is nice and
everything, but I want to be syncing with Evolution so while jpilot is
nice for backups it's unacceptable that gpilotd is crashing like this
for seemingly no good reason since jpilot works fine.
