Thanks to Raffy, the package is here -
http://minipc.org/ipup/download/JPilot-0.99.9-bluetooth.pet

EDIT: This package was compiled in Puppy3, and unfortunately it won't run in Puppy2.x

J-Pilot is a nice calendar/organiser application, originally intended to sync with Palm (and Sony Clie) handheld organisers.
Of course, even without a Palm organiser, J-Pilot is a useful application.
This version includes the pilot-link-0.12.3 library, compiled with USB and bluetooth support.
The package installs the device nodes /dev/ttyUSB0 and /dev/ttyUSB1
For bluetooth connections, the BlueZ and DBus libraries are required from here -

HowTo sychronise with a Palm device via USB
(info provided by Indy and plinej)
In J-Pilot go to File > Preferences > Settings > set Serial Port to "/dev/ttyUSB1" (not "/dev/ttyUSB0")
Now load the usbserial and visor modules -
Code:
modprobe usbserial
modprobe visor

Now press the hotsync button on the Palm (or cradle?) then quickly click the hotsync icon in J-Pilot.

HowTo sychronise with a Palm device via bluetooth (in theory! UNTESTED!)
In J-Pilot go to File > Preferences > Settings > set Serial Port to "/dev/rfcomm0"

Get bluetooth/dbus running by following these instructions -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=25009
When you get to this part of the HOWTO -
Code:
sdptool browse 00:17:E3:4B:68:A3

take note of the bluetooth channel which corresponds to the Palm synchronisation service. Let's say it's channel 12. Do this -
Code:
rfcomm connect 0 00:17:E3:4B:68:A3 12

The "0" creates this connection at /dev/rfcomm0, and "12" is the channel.
Puppy should report something like this -
Code:
Connected /dev/rfcomm0 to 00:17:E3:4B:68:A3 on channel 12
Press CTRL-C for hangup

Now click the hotsync icon on the Palm, then quickly click the hotsync icon in J-Pilot.
