I have a problem similar to the one reported by naanu in topic 4045 -- usb0 does not get created when I connect my Zaurus -- but I am using Debian 2.4.23. The solution from asmar in 4045 seems to be specific to Debian 2.6.3 as I don't have uhci_hcd, ohci_hcd, or ehci_hcd (as far as I know -- at least modprobe can't locate the modules). I found topic 8660, which contains much useful information from MeaninglessNick. I also found a HowTo at http://www.ruault.com/Zaurus/ethernet-over...wto.html#2.4.21 which contains much of the same information. However, the problem I am having seems to occur at a stage prior to the one addressed by those two topics.
When I connect my Zaurus to the desktop with the usb interface, I see the following messages appear in my /var/log/messages:
duo kernel: hub.c: new USB device 00:1d.1-1, assigned address 17
duo kernel: usb.c: USB device 17 (vend/prod 0x4dd/0x9032) is not claimed by any active driver.
duo usb.agent: missing kernel or user mode driver acm
These messages suggest to me that hotplug is working, but usbnet is not responding. lsmod shows that usbnet has been loaded (as has acm). I'm not sure what else I'm supposed to do to get usbnet to respond. The other directions don't seem to be relevant until I get usbnet activated. Any suggestions?
