USB tethering with slackware 14


Hi, I used to tether Android to slackware 13.37 through USB, which it created usb0 and then I just used dhcpcd usb0. But now I'm trying it on slack 14 and slackware is picking my phone up has a storage device.
Should I be loading a module before plugging in the cable?

Thanks.

Thanks for the reply ponce, yeah I tried what was in the link your posted. Well before I had another phone (Samsung Galaxy y) which worked. But my new phone is Alcatel onetouch 903. I've tried live distros like Archbang and Sabayon but no difference, my phone claims that linux is supported. Until now I've been using wifi but sometimes it just handy to plug into usb. I'll have to do some more googling...

Ponce deserves a medal for this post
