User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020826

Description of problem:
The Sharp Zaurus is only partially recognized. An interface is brought up, but
it won't communicate beyond that. It will not sync using Qtopia and you can't
ping the Zaurus.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.With Zaurus docking cradle plugged in, turn on Zaurus.

Actual Results:  Interface is brought up, but that is all.

Expected Results:  I should be able to ping the Zaurus. I can do the same thing
with Mandrake 8.2, following instructions on the URL referenced, and it syncs.

Additional info:

Apparently some kernel patch referenced on the URL is necessary. I don't know
how to go deeper than that. I will include my dmesg output and my ifconfig output.

This is probably the same as Bug 62596

Comment 2 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 11:39:56 EDT
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
