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

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).
QUOTE

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.

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.

I've installed the package and the interface shows green when the z is connected but I can't ping either, and get "no route to host" and "host is down" from the mac

What is the IP of the Mac shown under System Preferences/Network/Bulit-in Ethernet/TCP/IP ?

Which Zaurus is in use?

ok, so now I loaded the extension manually (not sure if that was needed but if I try it again it says it's already loaded, so it wasn't loaded automatically, but maybe it just loads it on first use...) and got the interface to appear by changing the priority order of interfaces in the port config list (it just appeared when I moved one of the others), then configured it, and now it's back in the status list after connecting the z (but the currently unused interfaces aren't in that list -- petty sure they were originally)

so ifconifg on the mac says...

en2: flags=8863<UP,BROADCAST,SMART,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet6 fe80::3630:30ff:fe30:3000%en2 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x8
inet 192.168.129.1 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.129.255
ether 34:30:30:30:30:00
media: autoselect (10baseT/UTP <full-duplex>) status: active
supported media: none autoselect 10baseT/UTP <half-duplex> 10baseT/UTP <full-duplex> 100baseTX <half-duplex> 100baseTX <full-duplex>

...when the z is connected and nothing about en2 otherwise

the z shows usbd0 up on 192.168.129.201 regardless but with a few more packets after connection

mac console has...

Aug 9 22:49:17 sumi mDNSResponder: Repeated transitions for interface en2 (192.168.129.1); delaying packets by 5 seconds

z dmesg has...

net_recv_urb: TOO LARGE urb->actual_length: 63 maxtransfer: 0
net_recv_urb: TOO LARGE urb->actual_length: 127 maxtransfer: 0
NETDEV WATCHDOG: usbd0: transmit timed out
usbd_device_bh: usbd_device_bh: no urb_sent function
netproto_recv: not registered: state: 0
netproto_recv: not up net_dev->flags: 1002

...then lots more watchdog timeouts

same problems pinging as before

I no longer have access to the linux box I used to use for this, so not sure if the z messages are normal, and don't have another ethernet-over-usb device to connect to the mac to see if that message is typical either, so if anyone has any ideas, please let me know

thanks
