I'm going to be getting an SL-5500 in a few days (shipping right now), and I'd like to connect it to my Linux machine. As we speak, I'm upgrading from 2.6.5 to 2.6.6 and I included the Zaurus stock ROM support under USB. Now, my questions are as follows:
1.) Besides the USB support for the Zaurus ROMs, what, if any, kernel parameters are necessary for connecting the Zaurus to my PC (so that I can sync [see question 3], browse the internet [through tunneling or masq.? I'm not familiar to either], etc.)
2.) After question 1 is sucessfully answered, I would like to be able to hotplug this baby right into the cradle and have it get an IP. How can I do this?
3.) I'd like to be able to use this PDA as a, well, PDA. I understand that Sharp made the mortal mistake of not supporting sync with Linux while basing their PDA on Linux. How does one do this, or does the 2.6.6 kernel's Zaurus support fix this issue?
Thanks for any info you can give me. I ordered the PDA Thursday night and it's supposed to take a few more days; UPS doesn't ship on Saturday, Sunday or Memorial Day, so I'm itching for it to arrive
EDIT: If it helps anyone, I'm using Slackware 9.1, so any help you give me should be of help to anyone running anything, not just a Debian or RPM fix 8)
