Alright, I've been trying to do this on my own, but it's been at least 5 days and I'm basically just going in circles.

My zaurus is a SL-5000D running OpenZaurus 3.2. My computer is running gentoo with kernel version 2.6.7.

I've tried various combinations of instructions from docs and forums all over the place (From OZ, ethernet over usb. ppp over usb, even other threads from this forum) and I'm still at the exact place I started.

No matter what I seem to do, or how many kernel configuration permutations I seem to try, I still cannot ping the zaurus:
root@minips1 /usr/src/linux # ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
From icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable
From icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable
From icmp_seq=3 Destination Host Unreachable
From icmp_seq=4 Destination Host Unreachable
From icmp_seq=5 Destination Host Unreachable
From icmp_seq=6 Destination Host Unreachable

--- ping statistics ---
7 packets transmitted, 0 received, +6 errors, 100% packet loss, time 6000ms
, pipe 4

I plug in the zaurus, and see the following in my syslog:
Sep  2 14:04:01 localhost kernel: usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using address 2
Sep  2 14:04:01 localhost kernel: usb0: register usbnet at usb-0000:00:1d.1-1, Sharp Zaurus SL-5x00
Sep  2 14:04:01 localhost kernel: usbcore: registered new driver usbnet
at which point hotplug sets up my usb0 network.
root@minips1 /usr/src/linux # lsmod

ehci_hcd               26436  0
uhci_hcd               29136  0

I have the following line in my /etc/conf.d/net file:
iface_usb0=" pointopoint netmask"
(I have also tried, instead of, with the same results) which appears to be working as the output of the below commands shows:
root@minips1 /home/tekniklr # ifconfig usb0
usb0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr E6:3D:50:73:2F:0E

         RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:276 (276.0 b)

root@minips1 /home/tekniklr # route

loopback        localhost.local       UG    0      0        0 lo
default         UG    0      0        0 ath0

If've also tried this, which doesn't give me better results:
root@minips1 /home/tekniklr # route add -host usb0
root@minips1 /home/tekniklr # route
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface *      UH    0      0        0 usb0   *        U     0      0        0 usb0        *        U     0      0        0 ath0
loopback        localhost.local       UG    0      0        0 lo
default         UG    0      0        0 ath0

My kernel has the following relevant configuration:
Device Drivers  --->
    USB support  --->
 [*] Enfore USB bandiwdth allocation
 <M> EHCI HCD (USB 2.0) support
 <M> UHCI HCD (most Intel and VIA) support
 <M> Multi-purpose USB Networking Framework
 [*] Embedded ARM Linux links (iPaq, ...)
 [*] Sharp Zaurus (stock ROMs)
 [*] CDC Ethernet support (smart deviced such as cable modems)
 USB Gadget Support  --->
     <*> Support for USB Gadgets
     <*>   USB Gadget Drivers (Ethernet Gadget)  --->
    Networking support  --->
 <*> PPP (point-to-point protocol) support
 <*> PPP support for sync tty ports
 <*> PPP Deflate compression
 <*> PPP BSD-Compress compression
(one of the many tutorials I looked at said PPP was needed).

On the zaurus side, Ive verified that usbd0 is up and running with IP, and that it is accepting sync connections from ' (default)' (though I've also tried 'All'). I've tried running
# route add default gw
SIOCADDRT: Network is unreachable
(same results whether I'm trying to use or on my computer).

Anyway, I've recompiled my kernel no less than 15 times already, just trying whatever different things I can think of, and am now completely at a loss. I don't know if I missed a step or what, but I've gone over everything so much that I don't think I'd be able to find the problem myself anyway.

Any ideas? Please?
