Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-pilot

We have a very old gnome-pilot in Jaunty. It should be updated to support more current devices, as well as working with latest hal.

gnome-pilot 2.0.17 'Pippi', 2009-01-07
Bug Fixes:
   - #484509: Avoid obsolete HAL info.bus API. Use hal pda.platform
                property instead (keep info.bus for backwards compatibility).
                With thanks to Frederic Crozat.
   - #528701: remove unused applet desktop file
   - #508262: fix long-standing build-order bug by moving libgpilotdcm
                code to gpilotd/ directory.
   - #491921: stray slash breaks rpath for libraries

It still starts and the structure didn't change a lot. Beyond that I can't test it much, I'm afraid.

I asked for testing feedback in bug 334446, who has some Palm owners subscribed.

Whilst I experienced by 349650 in 2.0.17, I also had it with 2.0.15, and the sync itself appeared to work just fine, so not a regression in 2.0.17.
