What's the output of lsmod? and of "uname -r" too? (both on the Zaurus) ifconfig will tell you whether the usb0 device is up on the Zaurus
If it's a 2.6.x kernel then do "modprobe g_ether", if it's 2.4.x then do "modprobe net_fd".
Windows driver for 2.6.x kernel requires linux.inf (search the forum) and for 2.4.x you need the usual c7x0 drivers.
I am finally able to get XP to detect the connected hardware. Basically modprobe g_ether did the trick. I was wondering why is this necessary whereas most installation instruction precluded that. I m not sure what modprobe does, as far as I am aware it involves loading modules? Can somebody please advise on what modprobe actually did? Yup, i get 2.6.16 from uname -r. Is that the kernel version of OZ i m using?
I have managed to install a new network connection to my Z from my XP. Yup, linux.inf did the trick! However, I am not able to ascertain that the TCP/IP stack is properly configured.
In my network configuration on Z, i.e Settings->Network (in Opei 1.2) I have
"Automatically bring up" checked, My IP Address is set to 192.168.0.202, My Subnet Mask is set to 255.255.255.0. I have set my Gateway to the IP address in my new LINUX USB/ RNDIS connection on XP... mine in particular is 192.168.128.200.
Of course this IP address 192.168.128.200 is also set on my XP connection and Subnet Mask is 255.255.255.0
However when I try to ping 192.168.128.200 from my Z I get network unreachable. Does this mean something is wrong? My ifconfig shows usb0 to be configured.
I am trying to get QTopia or Intellisync installed and communicating with my Z. Somehow that doesn't seem to work. I was told earlier that QTopia 1.7 may not work with C860, so does anyone know where can I get ver 1.5. Could somebody also point me to a good resource on configuring Sync using Opie 1.2.
On Opie 1.2 Settings->Security->Sync. What should I select the parameter "Accept sync from network" to be?
I assume the "Select you sync software" would be the sofware I am using on my desktop to synch with my Z, no?
Its been a long weekend trying to figure this thing out. I guess I need a short break. Neglected my gf so gotta go make it up to her now. I heard thats what linux can do to u.
Anyway, i appreciate any help u guys can give. Once again thanks so much for your help.
