Modules to enable to use gentoo htc internet


Hi Adams,

Your HTC Tattoo's internet sharing option on Windows is not that great. But, on Linux its okay after you enable the following modules in your kernel:

  • rndis_host
  • cdc_ether (with rndis support)
  • usbnet

You can find these modules:

1. Device Drivers

  • Network device support

    • USB Network Adapters

      • Multipurpose USB networking framework
      • Host of RNDIS and ActiveSync devices (EXPERIMENTAL)
  • USB Support

    • USB Gadget support

      • Ethernet Gadget (With CDC Ethernet support)
      • RNDIS support

After enabling the above modules, you will need to create a symlink from net.lo net.usb0 in /etc/init.d/

  • cd /etc/ init.d
  • ln -s net.lo net.usb0

Following the above instructions will get your Gentoo internet working.
