USB port ?

Post by Yasuki Izak » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00



Anyone knows a name of USB port (/dev/ttyu???).
I'd like to syncronize my address book between Visor (Handspring) and my
Linux (Redhat 6.1)
via USB port. Thanks in advance!

The RH 6.1 distro uses a 2.2.x version kernel. There is no USB support
available.

If you want USB you need to install a 2.4.x test kernel, the latest can be
found at

http://www.kernel.org/

The documentation for this new stuff can be found at

http://www.kernelnotes.org/doc23/usb/

Have fun.

Only if you want to use the development kernel 2.3 or test kernel 2.4 or
wait for kernel 2.4 to be released.  They have fullUSB support.

I've just downloaded 2.2.17 from www.kernel.org. This release has USB
support backported from 2.4.x, but IIRC you must answer yes for "Prompt
for incomplete/experimental device drivers".

and they are ttyUSB0 thru ttyUSB15  0 and 1 are most important.  0 gets
the connection and 1 does sync.  I think.  Do a google search for visor
and the howto works ok.

Have fun.
