OK, I've tried it myself. The first time I tried to sync it gave me the error 
message about missing a pilot name. The example has something like :
install-user -p /dev/usb/ttyUSB0 "name" 12345
but what worked was:
install-user -p /dev/usb/ttyUSB1 -i 12345

So I got past that point, and tried a sync. The palm device did not have any 
data, and the jpilot db's had quite a few. I had been using jpilot as a 
contact book without a pilot for a few years.

It worked first time like a charm, But then (Isn't there always a but 
then,,,,) when the sync was done jpilot crashed.

The output I saw was :
jpilot: jpilot_logf deprecated, use jp_logf instead.
Couldn't read Mail preferences

When I brought up jpilot again it was empty (i.e. no addresses, memos, etc), 
but the palm device was full. I tried a sync again, and again it crashed.

This jpilot was installed with SuSE 9.0, the version info is:

jpilot -v

J-Pilot version 0.99.6

Any ideas as to why it crashed? Why is my jpilot db's empty?
