I have a Zire 31, and I am able to sync to my Dapper desktop box no problem, other than the MAL (Avantgo) conntection, which refuses to update. This is using KPilot with 3.5.2 KDE Desktop.

I am running Dapper 6.0.6.

Have you checked /var/log/messages right after a sync attempt? Detecting the PDA, and trying to connect to it should all be there, inculding the errors.
