I am currently working on adding a generic External Device API to QuantumSTEP (a GNUstep based "MacOS X" for the Zaurus) for Compact Flash cards.
The current code already recognizes card insertion and eject events and shows them in the status menu bar. But for a generic Wireless (WLAN+GPRS) and Location (GPS) interface allowing for full Plug and Play, I need some more testing and knowledge what cards are out there - and what makes them different.
Since I myself have only access to develop and test with
* Audiovox RTM 8000 - GSM/GPRS (using AT 07.05/07.07 through /dev/ttyS3)
* Billionton CFGPS - GPS (sending NMEA strings through /dev/ttyS3)
* Sharp Zaurus CE-AG06 (using its own /dev driver),
I am looking in a "FirstSTEP" which other cards have to be recognized. That is an area where help is appreciated by sending the output of
Please note that WLAN and Bluetooth already have generic drivers (stacks) on Linux level - so I do not need those.
With that, QuantumSTEP can make the Next(small)STEP
Thanks in advance,
