pilot-link is undergoing some tweaks and fixes and such and the
currently released packages pretty much have everything broken.  If you
want to make some headway, do this:

Forget all about visor.ko.  It's old-hat.  Snag the latest pilot-link
from Koji (
and upgrade your installation (you may also need pilot-link-devel).
Remove any udev hacks that you have put in place (60-libpisock.rules or
whatever) you won't need it.  

After pilot-link is updated, plug in your Palm and initiate a hotsync.
The first time around, HAL is likely to segfault
(check /var/log/messages).  Restart HAL with /etc/init.d/haldaemon
restart.  Now, execute: pilot-xfer -p usb: -l  and initiate a hotsync
when prompted.  You should get a dump from the phone.

If all is well, change your Palm sync app to use the 'usb:' device
instead of /dev/ttyUSBx and you should be in good shape.
