Dear all,

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

CODE
cardctl ident


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 smile.gif

Thanks in advance,
hns

Card: Eagletech GSM/GPRS CF+ (FCC ID: MSQAGC100):

cardctl ident reports:

product info: "GPRS Modem", "GPRS", "", ""
manfid: 0x0279, 0x950b
function: 2 (serial)

(it seems to be a good audiovox clone)

Hope this helps (a bit...)

Happy coding!

That is literally the same for manfid! Enough to recognize them as the same. Just the "GPRS" is "" for the Audiovox.

Just with a different FCC-ID...

Not only a bit - that is already doubling the number of supported cards without any additional code!

Thanks!
Any other cards out there?
