Linux Issues / zaurus desktop pim apps ??

You cannot sync to anything but Qtopia Desktop on Linux. If you are using SL-5500 ROM 3.x or a SL-5600, then you cannot sync (under the Sharp/Sharp based ROMs) at all to Linux. OZ/Opie syncs to Qtopia Desktop, but still does not sync to Evolution or anything else (SL-5500 version is fairly stable, from what I hear, but the 5600 version is very unstable, and has big glitches, so far, from personal experience).

OZ syncs to evolution using multisync and the kde pim stuff using kitchensync
I synced a 5500 with the Qtopia Desktop binary from the Trolltech site through the USB cradle. Here\'s how I did it:
    to extablish a USB link with my desktop.
    2) Downloaded the RedHat 9 RPM
from here
3) Ran rpm2tgz since Gentoo plays nicer with tgz
4) Unziped the archive and moved the Qtopia folder to /opt then lanuched qtopiadesktop
5) Synced everything and installed some files
