Description of problem:
gpilotd-control-applet fails to start in Fedora Core 4 - I get a permissions error.
If I add myself to the uucp group, it will get further - it won't give a permissions error.
If I install the debuginfo package (which yum doesn't list, so I downloaded it direct), I get a gui. That doesn't work.

By "doesn't work", I mean it crashes. Here is the stack trace.
What version of gnome-pilot and pilot-link are you using?
Can you send more info? Try killing gpilotd and then
starting it in a terminal window so that you can see any info/error
messages it produces.
I'm not going to be able to answer this any time soon, but I can say I was using
the latest version of both (as available from yum update in FC4) at the time of
the bug report.
I will add more info when I can.
This bug may be a duplicate of #158809.
Take a look at
for a possible workaround.
You can check whether this is the issue that affects you by seeing how long it
takes for /dev/ttyUSB* to appear after you attempt a sync.
Thanks very much for this. I don't have time at the moment to retest, so to keep
things tidy will mark as a dupe.
