So I got my stuff working and I can see the zaurus, ssh etc.

Im using the OZ 3.5.2 rom, and the desktop is debian 3.1.

when I sftp to the zaurus and transfer files though, its transferring at like 4kb a second, granted its writing to either cf or sd, but still, thats pretty nasty. wget d/l things way faster.

perhaps I will through the stuff on the web and wget it all....

Ok so I have been following these how-to's to the t, perhaps i am forgetting something.

dmesg look slike this when I plug in the zaurus:
usb 1-2.2: new full speed USB device using address 13
usb0: register usbnet at usb-0000:00:02.0-2.2, Sharp Zaurus SL-5x00

ok, so its picking it up, then i run ifconfig:

ifconfig usb0 netmask up
usb0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 36:A3:3B:A7:C8:E4
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
inet6 addr: fe80::34a3:3bff:fea7:c8e4/64 Scope:Link
RX packets:1098 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:1392 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:144629 (141.2 KiB) TX bytes:132297 (129.1 KiB)

great, so i can ssh into the zaurus no problem, and i can ping my desktop ( no problem from the zaurus

So I am guessing it must have somethign to do with the masquearading / gateway.

here are the routing tables for the zaurus:

root@collie:~# route
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface * UH 0 0 0 usbd0 * U 0 0 0 usbd0
default UG 0 0 0 usbd0

the default gateway takes like 10 seconds before it shows up, /etc/resolv.conf is set for the router, same as my desktop ( the router)

I cant ping ip's or hostnames though from the zaurus, it just times out, nor can i ping the ip of the router.

anyone have any suggesstions / things I can try?

So I have been scouring the forum before I made this post and didn't find much relative to my situation.

I have juts flashed my 5500 with 3.5.3, and when I try to install the sharp-compat-libs ( from what I gather formerly the oz-compat ipk) i get a failed dependency for opie-sh, so I install opei-sh, and then get a failed dependency for task-opie-minimum, I cant seem to find this guy though?

I have also had a separate issue where after a fresh flashing, it get errors about how I need to install libgcc1, isnt that base?

So I am runnins Sharp ROm 3.1 on a 5500 my laptop is running windows xp tablet edition.

When I hit sync on the cradle, or manually, intellisync opos up on my laptop, so I know communication is good. Then when it starts "Preparing records" the zaurus goes to a black screen and says wait 5...4...3...2...1 and then enters runlevel 5 and reboots. Weird!?!?!?!? It seems to do this only when it is in the cradle, at least thats only when I have noticed it. ANy ideas?

I am having a slight problem here. I have recently installed Konqueror and Opera from the ZUG feed to a ext2 formatted sd card. There is around 16MB of space still left on the card, but both programs Seg Fault upon launch. Anyone have ideas? Im running OZ 3.2
