Dear all Mac & Zaurus users,
you may already have noticed the Xmas present while OESF was down: a new version of the USB driver for the Zaurus is available!
Here some key changes:
* it is now a universal binary (can be installed on PowerPC or Intel Macs)
* fixes some more risks for Kernel Panics
* better handles sleep mode of powerbooks/macbooks
* now also supports the Letux Acer n30 (www.letux.org)
A word of caution: there is one known kernel panic on a MacBook: if the MacBook goes to sleep mode and if you either switch on/off or unplug a running Zaurus, this will try to wake up the Mac - and it hangs somewhere until you finally unplug the Zaurus. This finally triggers a Kernel Panic.
So, the safe procedure is: before doing anything on the Zaurus, wake up the MacBook by opening the lid or pressing a key. I hope the release 0.5.1 can fix that (kernel debugging a Mac Driver is not simple and very time consuming...).
Here is the download link: http://www.dsitri.de/download/AJZaurusUSB-0.5.0.tgz

I wish you all a Happy New Year!
