I have been trying to setup Synce to sync up my ppc6800. Everytime I connect the phone and Fedora 9 workstation via USB, it connects my phone as a wired network. I have verified this by looking at Connection info in Network Manager Applet.
Apparently trying to utilize the data link in the phone. How do I prevent this?
Found this for Ubuntu, but couldn't figure out how to make the iface part work for Fedora 9 at
If you have the Gnome Network Manager running on Ubuntu, it will setup your device as the new default network connection. Check what ethernet device was given to your device with by running the following command in a terminal after you have connected your device:
/sbin/ifconfig -a | grep 80:00:60:0f:e8:00 | cut -d " " -f 1
then add the next line to /etc/network/interfaces:
iface <interface of your device> inet dhcp
This will make Gnome Network Manager ignore the interface.
