There are some changes in linux/drivers/usb/usbnet.c between these versions.
This seems to have changed the setup at the least.
It will take more review to understand how to work with these changes or what to do to fix them.

Is this for PC or Zaurus? Is it in 2.6.12-rc yet ?

If you have a desktop pc with linux 2.4, and have trouble connecting via USB a zaurus with kernel 2.6, the usb-networking howto in openzaurus website may help.

And there's me thinking you meant kernel 2.6 running alongside pdaXrom on a Z huh.gif

I can confirm this problem on DESKTOP linux ditros running 2.6.11. The problem is marked fixed in the changelogs for 2.6.12.RC3 but I have not tried in yet.

OK; Yes I should have been clearer about which kernel I was talking about.
It was/is the Kernel on my computer not the kernel on the Z that is the problem.
I try and keep up with the latest stable kernel on my Network Services Server (route, firewall, and other servises). Now that I now it is not something stupid or unfixable (hardware problem on the Z) I can continue to apply patches and or wait for 2.6.12...
