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 09:40:45 EDT
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 12:38:35 EDT
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
http://www.redhat.com/rhel/migrate/redhatlinux/.

Closing as CANTFIX.
