pilot-link needs to be the stable version not the
"pre" version

Version of release notes this bug refers to:
Fedora Core 4 final release

As reported, when I backed out kdepim, evolution, jpilot, ...
rpm -e pilot-link,
went to fedora core 3

did an 
rpmbuild --rebuild pilot-link-0.11.8-8.src.rpm
reinstalled the pilot-link rpm from

had to rpmbuild --rebuild
kdepim, evolution, jpilot
and whatever else complained when I did the
rpm -e pilot-link

It all worked.  It is not a kernel problem.
The problem is using the pilot-link-0.12*pre*rpm.
It has a new API which breaks the visor and palm rpm

The new kernel still does not automagically recognize
the visor in time so I have to do the

if [ ! -c /dev/ttyUSB0 ] ; then
        mknod /dev/ttyUSB0 c 188 0
if [ ! -c /dev/ttyUSB1 ] ; then
        mknod /dev/ttyUSB1 c 188 1
if [ ! -L /dev/pilot ] ; then
        ln -s /dev/ttyUSB1 /dev/pilot

chown [yourname]  /dev/ttyUSB0 /dev/ttyUSB1
chmod 0664 /dev/ttyUSB0 /dev/ttyUSB1

kabooki dance.
