I have posted a small update:

http://www.handheld-linux.com/swi/showdetail.php?app=4378

It is recompiled on MacOS X 10.4.6 with Xcode 2.2.1 (PowerPC Macs only). But if you have no problems, there is no need to update.

It also adds some configuration for accessing the Motorola A780 as described here: http://wiki.openezx.org/Get_a_shell

I recently found that people are editing Info.plist to adapt AJZaurusUSB to different devices (e.g. iPAQ).

To describe how to find out what to add and to collect information to integrate it back into new releases, I have started this thread:

As soon as I own one.

Up to now they have not really been convincing to me. I would get the same amount of memory and harddisk capacity as in my old G4 PowerBook. Well, the CPU speed would be factor 5 - but I am still the slowest part of the system.

So, let's cross fingers that Apple is announcing a dual core Merom based MacBook Pro soon smile.gif That would be a real replacement for the long awaited PowerBook G5.

But if you have one, you can try it yourself. It is open source. But I have no idea if it works.

To my understanding, some things will cross compile and other things need alteration. If this is the type that does not need alteration and someone can give me instructions on how to do it, I'll compile it. I have gcc4, XCodes and a MacBook pro, so I should be able to do it.

By the way, the MacBooks are nice. It gets warm, but so did by old Dell Pentium 4 clunker.

Ok, let's try a "remote control"...

You need to do:
1. load AJZaurusUSB sources
2. read the HOWTO-MAKE
3. open the AJZaurusUSB.xcodeproj
4. press Build
5. a Terminal will come up.
6. type 'make'
7. it will ask for your system admin password
8. it should compile without errors
9. Save everything
10. Save everything again
11. Now comes the critical point: type 'make load' (it may ask again for the password)
12. connect the Zaurus through USB
13. The Mac might now Kernel Panic every moment....
14. if not, go to the Network Preferences and look if a "new interface" was found
15. configure the interface
16. try to ping the Zaurus

If everything works fine, type 'make install' to keep the driver permanently on your Mac (even after a reboot).

I just went through the whole process. IT WORKS!! My mac "sees" the Zaurus and can ping it (avg 1.28 ms). Now, is there a way for the machines to communicate? I know there is a sync tool out there, but is there a way to transfer files? Also, how does quantumstep fit in with all of this on an OZ/opie machine?

Finally, I noticed a way to make a package in the how-to-make documentation. Does anyone want a compiled package and where would I upload it too?

You can
1) install openssh on the Zaurus
2) mount the Zaurus as a SMB file system on the Mac
QUOTE

No direct relation. QuantumSTEP is a GUI system which can also use AJZaurusUSB for communication. The Sync Tool is ZMacSync and also still PowerPC only (but not open source - sorry).

I think the best way would be if you make a package and send it to me. Then, I can put it on the AJZaurusUSB home page for download.

And as soon as I have an Intel Mac, I can try to build a version which can be instaled on both types of systems as well as ZMacSync.

I have sent you the package via the dsitri email address on your QuantumStep web page.

Compiling: yes - but no testing (which is even more important...).

I have tested the AJZaurusUSB driver that I compiled, packaged and was uploaded to Dsitri. It installs without problems and is fully functional. My MacBook Pro "sees" my Collie and my Collie barks at my MacBook.

So, here is the home page: http://www.dsitri.de/wiki.php?page=AJZaurusUSB and the download link http://www.dsitri.de/download/AJZaurusUSB-x86-0.3.2.tgz

Chris, thanks again!
