has anybody already got a network connection via USB between the Zaurus and Solaris 10 (x86) working?

I just switched my desktop from Ubuntu to Solaris but I'm still searching for a solution .

I'm using OPIE/Angstrom 11.2007 on my Cl760 right now and I think that does not matter for this problem.

AIUI, there are slight variations in the way different Zaurus distros present themselves when running usb networking; the "standard" way now is cdc_ether/g_ether; there are specific linux kernel build flags for these modules. I think there's some sort of NDIS driver for windows too.

I have no idea whether you can port the code to OpenSolaris at all; my guess is *maybe*, or you might find something in the OpenBSD tree which would help.

sorry to be so vague, I don't use usbnet any more, as I have CF adaptors for wifi, ether, bluetooth and GPRS, so I am quite spoiled for choice.
