They get this by using a mainstream ARM kernel such as 2. Among other things, it seems that MS-Windows does so much work when hooking up a new device that it’s easy for one thing to go wrong, which can sometimes completely lock up the USB port to which you connect the device. Different devices may have different information available; for example, link availability is not always known. With a root NFS mount, networking has to be available when the kernel is booting. This driver should work with at least the following devices: Unfortunately we can’t expect such bugs to get fixed by Microsoft. Or, use the www.

How to configure the Linux kernel/drivers/usb/net

Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. That’s the preferred solution for Zaurus interoperability.

That framework comes with a CDC Ethernet driver, which is used in conjunction with a driver for the specific hardware involved. You can add them back later. The other is a “host” that sits on some LAN, and probably has Internet access.

Super User works best with JavaScript enabled. They’re not GUI tools, but they’re a better start than what’s sketched here.

At the same time the Linux community was doing the work above in public, Zaurus SLD development was being done behind closed doors. Privacy Policy Terms of Use Disclaimer. Sometimes they’re sold as special “adapter cables” like this one which happens to use a Prolific PL chip.

So now it re boots into the right configuration, but this setup won’t play nicely with RedHat’s tools.

Last Drivers  CANON C3380 MAC DRIVER

By using the steps below, and creating a network bridge with the ubnet and the wireless connection, I can acquire a DHCP address, and can ping my laptop, which is the USB host, but I can’t ping anything else. Once that driver starts using that USB device, you’ll notice a message like this in your syslog files, announcing the presence of a new usb0 or usb1usb2etc network interface that you can use with ifconfig and similar network tools.

Stable names let you build systems with logic like “since this link isbnet to the test network, we will firewall it carefully when we bring it up”. The “usbfs” style device naming has problems since it’s not “stable”: Before connecting the target device to the host PC, watch the syslog, by running the following command on the host PC:.

If you try to use one, you might even short out your USB electronics and so need to buy a new system. Navigation Main Page Recent changes. There are several USB class standards for such adapters, and many proprietary approaches too.

In current Linux it’s now a generalized core, supporting several kinds of network devices running under Linux with “minidrivers”, which are separate modules that can be as small as a pair of static data tables. Get the right network settings from your local network admin.

To fix that, rebuild and ushnet as appropriate; at this time you might also want to upgrade to a recent kernel. The link will appear with a name like “usb0”, when the link is a two-node link, or “eth0” for most CDC-Ethernet devices. There are other USB 2. You might have noticed that the MS-Windows usbnnet provided with most USB host-to-host cables implements a limited form of bridging. Can anyone point me in the right direction? One consequence of supporting multiple devices is that the “usbnet” driver supports several usbet link level framing solutions for IEEE packets over USB.


You can preconfigure those tools, modify the system setup to automate more of the setup, or more typically do both. If you don’t want to mess with your system folders, I’d suggest you copy the kernel source to a temporary location before attempting compilation:.

The GNU/Linux “usbnet” Driver

First, you have to make sure you have linuxx kernel’s source on your hard drive. Basically, they’re missing the extra electronics shown above, which is necessary to let a USB “master” host talk to another one, by making both talk through a USB “slave” device. There are also Linux-USB device drivers for ethernet adapters that don’t use this framework. You should be able to use “usbnet” to talk to these gadgets from Linux hosts, and its device side acts much like the iPaq scenario described here.

Different devices may have different information available; for example, link availability is not always known. Home – linux – gumstix Copyright by Dave Hylands.
