Palm device problems in FC4

5 days, no answer... can anyone help?

Hi all... I tried this thread in General, but got no responses. I have recently moved from FC3 to FC4 doing a clean install. Most is going well, but I cannot get my Palm device (Kyocera 7135 Smartphone) to sync. It worked fine under FC3.

I am using a serial cradle, and have already given permissions to ttyS0 etc.

When I try to read the ID from the Palm, the config wizard asks me to hit the sync button. I do that, the device appears to do a quick sync, and the config wizard just sits there waiting.

I have googled and read, and may have found the issue. I have 2 versions of pilot-link on my system (no idea how) as reported by yum. I tried to install the older version, but yum wants to remove Evolution and a bunch of other 'dependencies'.

The question is, how do I remove pilot-link 1:0.12.0-0.pre2.0 without removing the dependencies (most noticably Evolution)?

Below is the reporting from yum:
