USB dongle on dreamplug (for sending SMS)


Hi, guys!

I'm doing experiments to send SMS with a USB dongle (huawei, just in case) on a dreamplug. First things first. When I connect the dongle to my x86 box, I get 3 new serial USB ports. Then I can use the first of these 3 new ports to send AT commands to the dongle (think of it as a modem). I tried the same thing with a beagleboard and the same thing happend... but I'm connecting the dongle to the dreamplug and I see stuff in dmesg about it but no serial devices that I could use to send the AT commands..... so, what do I have to do so that the serial ports do show up on the dreamplug? Do I have to use a different kernel? And if so, where can I see how to build/install it on the dreamplug?

Code:
# uname -a
Linux sheevaplug-debian 2.6.33.6 #1 PREEMPT Tue Feb 8 03:18:41 EST 2011 armv5tel GNU/Linux
# cat /etc/debian_version 
6.0.5
# lsusb
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 12d1:1446 Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. E1552 (HSPA modem)
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0d8c:000c C-Media Electronics, Inc. Audio Adapter
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 05e3:0726 Genesys Logic, Inc.

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
From dmesg:
Code:
usb 1-1.2: new high speed USB device using orion-ehci and address 5

Thanks in advance.

Could it be a missing mapping in modules.usbmap?

Ok..... so I sat down with my box and the dreamplug in front of me to see what's going on.

There's a mapping to module "option" in both modules.usbmap however, when I insert the dongle on the dreamplug, option module is not loaded..... I tried modprobing it but not much happened... damn!

What's next?
