Question Zaurus sl-5500 usb sync problem


I can't get my zaurus to sync.

I have the 5500 with the original software and RH 9.0

This is what I have done:

I read the instructions here ==> http://www.linux-migration.org/ch05s08.html

I came up with some questions. Since Linux recognized my scanner during install will the following be automatically installed as per the install instructions?

Provided you have a recent enough kernel, the kernel configuration options you want are under:

USB support -->;
...
--- USB Network Adaptors
<M> USB Communication Class Ethernet device support (EXPERIMENTAL)
<M> USB-to-USB Networking Cables, Linux PDAs, ... (EXPERIMENTAL)


Everything goes according to the text until I plug in the Zaurus. Instead of usb0 it is loading CDC on eth1.

lsmod reveals the following

usbnet 16290 0 (unused)
CDCEther 14240 0
scanner 11228 0 (unused)
usb-ohci 21896 0 (unused)
usbcore 81440 1 [usbnet CDCEther acm scanner hid usb-ohci]

usbnet and CDCEther were loaded just like the doc says when the zaurus was plugged into the cradel

tail -f /var/log/messages gives the following

Feb 24 20:17:22 localhost kernel: hub.c: new USB device 00:07.4-1.4, assigned address 12
Feb 24 20:17:22 localhost kernel: CDCEther.c: eth1: Sharp SL Series
Feb 24 20:17:22 localhost /etc/hotplug/net.agent: invoke ifup eth1
Feb 24 20:17:25 localhost /etc/hotplug/usb.agent: Setup acm CDCEther usbnet for
USB product 4dd/8004/0
Feb 24 20:17:26 localhost devlabel: devlabel service started/restarted

Not to be defeated I tried the following:

[root@localhost /]# ifconfig usb0 192.168.129.1 netmask 255.255.255.255 up
SIOCSIFADDR: No such device
usb0: unknown interface: No such device
SIOCSIFNETMASK: No such device
usb0: unknown interface: No such device

still not to be defeated, I tried the following since it was recognized as eth1

[root@localhost /]# ifconfig eth1 192.168.129.1 netmask 255.255.255.255 up
[root@localhost /]# ifconfig

Since I am using the original zaurus software, I have a network and sync button with the following settings:

Under the network icon ==> services I have tcp/ip with the following:

ip address is 192.168.129.201
netmask of 255.255.255.255
gateway of 192.168.129.1 <<== corresponds with eth1

Under the network icon ==> Sync I have tried the following
usb entry of 192.168.129.1 & 192.168.129.201 because it is unclear in the document exactly which one I needed.

Still no sync.:Pengy: :study:
