I did it the following way: I just built the Debian packages (which are
currently at 1.0.0 alpha2) with the syncevolution source from git, and
installed the packages.
I tend to use "checkinstall" for such purposes. Doesn't result in nice
packages, but is good enough for local installs, and you have full

the new packages. I always got the message "[ERROR] Background sync
daemon has gone.".
This might be a bug. It indicates that the syncevo-dbus-server quit
Can you run /usr/libexec/syncevo-dbus-server in a separate shell
manually, then try "syncevolution"? If all works, you should see output
from the server and the command line.
If the server dies, please run under gdb and collect a stack back trace.
Maybe this is all nonsense and I have an incomplete installation or
something like this. Please ignore this suggestion in this case.
Also, I want to point out that I like the server addition. I hope it
can be made to run on a headless server with Debian Lenny, so I don't
have to use some external service for private data anymore.
I've already switched to such a setup:

variables, not all mentioned yet on that page - will fix this), but it
