From Rc11 the usbconfig is not able to use Zaurus SL6000 like a USB-Pen.

If someone have a successful story about doing working the usbdconfig with SL6000 for use the Zaurus like a usb-pen, please post in this topic.
And please make a description what you have done for make woring this feature.

Thanks
For me was working in the RC10, but now from RC11 doesn't work.

Dear Roberto,
The problem is the permission on your CF or SD card.
In fact I have formatted the CF and SD in ext2 fs and with the write permission only for the root or for user different UID 1000( for example) so the usbdconfig was not able to share the directory via USB.

So if you want to share the CF or SD via usb you must put the permission wr to all user and put the root user and group.

chmod a+wr -R /mnt/cf
chmod a+wr -R /mnt/card

for the user:
chown -R root:root /mnt/cf
chown -R root:root /mnt/card

Thanks

Roberto

I'm a little confused about what you say here - I can't think of any reason why the card permissions should stop the card from being used as a mass-storage device, mainly because the card is not mounted when it's used as a mass-storage device (so changes to the mount points make no sense). In addition you have to be root to insmod the storage_fd module and therefore it doesn't really matter what any permissions are.

On the machine on which you're mounting the card (via usb) I can see that you might have issues accessing files if they are owned by root (for example), however the mounting is also performed by root so again I fail to see a problem.

Perhaps I've mis-understood what you're trying to do.

Only for be clear :when I'm talking about the SD/CF I'm talking when they are inside the Zaurus...
So I connect the Zaurus to my PC (GNU/Linux) and I see or the CF or the SD (in relation to the usbconfig settings)
Without any knowledge of module storage_fd on Zaurus, I can only descript my experience, that is...

If my SD/CF with ext2 filesystem have directoris with permissions for all the user I can see on my PC connected via USB with the Zaurus... With other type of permissions I can't see...

Thats all biggrin.gif
