Hi,

I have my C1000 since 2 days now, and I'm very happy with it. Now I tried to get some hardware working. When I looked through my usb-devices, I found an USB ethernet dongle which uses an ax88772 chip. It works without an problem on my Laptop (running Gentoo with a 2.6.13 kernel) but the Zaurus doesn't recognize it as an Network device. dmesg only says:
CODE
usb.c. USB device 2 (vend/prod 0xb95/0x7720) is not claimed by any active driver.

I tired loading the usbnet driver by hand but did not work, also tired to copy the modules.usbmap line from my laptop to the Zaurus but this didn't help either.

So if anyone has a similar dongle working with Cacko 1.23 / has some tips on how to get this working please let me know.

Thanks in advance

You could check this thread for general pointers: http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=11810

You could try to install this Meanie's package which include drivers:

If nothing works, you must patch the pegasus module with the necessary patches. To find what the patches are, you should follow the changes in the source code of your current kernel up until the first official kernel that supported that chipset (perhaps it is 2.6.13).

Thanks for the answer. Unfortunately the modules from Meanie's package don't work. After some research it seems to me that there is no support for this chip in 2.4.x kernels. And I'm not a kernel hacker so I cannot backport the driver from 2.6.13. So for know this thing doesnt work with the Zaurus unless someone backports the driver to 2.4.20 or cacko uses 2.6 Kernel.

I give up for now since I found no info on how to get this driver into 2.4.20 easily, and I can use my WLAN-Card in most places (and where I can't use WLAN, I dont have access to wired LAN so it wouldn't help at all). Just would have been a cool addon feature ^_^
