Currently I am able to sync my Palm VX with Evolution, jpilot or use the
pilot link tools via command line. I am running Etch with kernel 2.6.15,
udev 0.019-2, yaird 0.0.12-9. Hotplug is not installed and this is a
serial connection to the cradle. Not sure what your connection is but
don't give up yet. Do I remember reading back in this thread that your
connection is usb?
