Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 62592
USB over Ethernet driver needed for Sharp Zaurus
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:41:34 EDT
The new Sharp Zaurus <http://www.myzaurus.com/> is a new Linux-based PDA which
is looking to become very popular.
One of the interesting features of the Zaurus is that it uses Ethernet over USB
to communicate with the desktop. This requires Linux kernel drivers for
Ethernet over USB. It'd be really nice if these drivers (which are available in
source under the GPLv2) were included in RH 7.3, and would help with Linux
penetrate the PDA market by increasing ease-of-use.
Info about the drivers can be found at:
Drivers themselves are at:
Note that although I and other Zaurus users are interested in this for that
reason, I'm sure there are lots of other creative things people might want
Ethernet over USB.
Way too late for 7.3.
For Milan and 7.3 errata - sure, if it passes Greg Kroah
at least tentatively.
