Description of problem:
kpilot is missing in kdepim-3.5.6-0.2.fc6
Created attachment 148133 [details]
diff list kdepim-3.5.5-0.2 and kdepim-3.5.6-0.2
Kpilot in KDe 3.5.6 requires pilot-link >= 0.12.0 (and optionally libmal for
the conduit stuff). Currently I have 0.11.8. If these are upgraded it will
pilot-link >= 0.12 is required to build kpilot now. I don't think we can
update new pilot-link in FC6 because it will break evolution.
Perhaps i should add new pilot-link in kdepim.
I too was bitten by this after an upgrade, and I'm actually quite peeved that a rather useful component
like kpilot was just dropped from the package without any notice. The changelog doesn't mention
anything, and I thought I was going crazy until I searched bugzilla and found this report. I think the
package maintainer should do whatever is necessary to ensure that kpilot is included and working in the
package, because now I have no way to sync my addresses and diary with my palm.
Please be kind enough to provide an idea of when a fixed package will be released. That way, I can
decide whether I am going to wait a couple of days, or consider downgrading to 3.5.5.
Well, I needed to sync my Palm with my desktop, so I decided to upgrade. Since I don't use either of
evolution or jpilot (which depend on pilot-link 0.11), I grabbed the latest pilot-link and kdepim from
Rawhide, and upgraded those 2 packages on my system. Now, I can sync my Palm to my desktop, and
I'm satisfied with the solution.
Arghh. This is really anoying. Just upgraded from FC5 to FC6 and the first thing
which broke was an error message saying that kpilot could not be started.
Ngo: You mentioned to add new pilot-link in kdepim. Is it possible to have an
extra installation of pilot-link inside kdepim beneath the normal pilot-link
package or build a statically linked version of kpilot? If yes, I would kindly
ask you to re-enable kpilot this way, because otherwise it is not possible to
sync Palm Pilots to kontact in Fedora and people - like me - relied on it in the
I respectfully request this issue be escalated. It is affecting me, as well.
kpilot is probably used by many, many people, IMHO.
I installed this kdepim:
It has kpilot and kpilotDaemon and appears to be working properly for me.
HotSync worked like a champ.
