Full Version: Usbnet Fixed In Kernel 2.6.12-rc5
OESF Portables Forum > Everything Else > Archived Forums > Zaurus General Forums > Desktop Operating Systems Issues > Linux Issues
As many already noticed, usbnet for zaurus was broken since kernel 2.6.11.
Good news: it now works again in 2.6.12-rc5.
I also applied the usbnet_zaurus.patch from David Brownell he submitted 3 june in the fa.linux.kernel newsgroup, which I don't know was necessary since I own the zaurus sl-5600, not sl-6000.
Here's the patch:
This "obvious" one-liner is needed to recognize Zaurus SL 6000;
it just checks two GUIDs not just one.

From kernel version 2.6.12 and on, the usbnet issue is solved. No patch needed.

yup, since 2.6.12-rc5, when I tested it and posted that it worked on kernel bugzilla.
