    You could try this guide
    /!\ Packages for Fedora 8 are currently in updates-testing. To install them add --enablerepo=updates-testing to the yum commands below to install the packages.

    Mandatory connection tools

    This software is required for a basic connection to work, so that you can send files to and from your device.

    $ sudo yum install odccm

    odccm is installed as a system service but disabled by default. You can start it with

    $ sudo service odccm start

    If odccm should be started automatically add it to the desired runlevel via chkconfig

    $ sudo chkconfig --level 35 odccm on

    Note for Fedora 9 with wm5/6: Before going further try the following:

    1.

    $ sudo yum install synce-sync-engine symce-gnome synce-kde synce-software-manager synce-trayicon librapi

    2.

    on the wm-5/6 pda, in Settings -> Connections -> USB Settings, select "Transmission As Network Interface".
    3. connect the wm-5/6 (I.E. put it in the cradle)
    4. run the command "pls", this should list the files on your device and prove your connection is up.
    5.

    Gnome users: in the "Applications->System Tools" menu, you will find "synce-trayicon", run it, and a nice PDA icon will show up in the desktop notification area, ("Explore with File Manager" (synce-gnomevfs) will not work because Nautilus doesn't use gnomevfs anymore, it was replaced by gvfs.)
    6.

    If you want to access the internet on your device through the linux box, run sync-engine, which should allow this automagically.

    You are done, enjoy! The older vdccm is also available via

    $ sudo yum install vdccm

    Some devices may need a patched kernel. For your convenience a dkms based package is provided that will automatically install and upgrade the kernel. It can be downloaded fromhttp://fedora.lowlatency.de/review/ ... noarch.rpm and installed via (pick f8 or f9 depending on your fedora version):

    $ sudo yum install dkms
    $ sudo rpm -Uhv synce-usb-rndis-lite-dkms-0.11-1.fc8.noarch.rpm
    OR
    $ rpm -Uhv http://fedora.lowlatency.de/review/sync ... noarch.rpm

    Synchronization Support

    If you want to use synchronization features of the device install synce-sync-engine:

    $ sudo yum install synce-sync-engine

    Finished

    SynCE is now installed. You can progress to the next step of the SynceInstallation.

    for DKMS you have to do that :

    Code:
     wget# [url]ftp://guest@csdftp.acer.com.tw/Aspire_One_Linpus_Linux/Aspire_One_Source/linux-2.6.23.9lw.zip[/url]
    unzip -x linux-2.6.23.9lw.zip
    sudo mv linux-2.6.23.9/ /usr/src/linux-2.6.23.9
    sudo ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.6.23.9 /usr/src/linux-2.6.23.9lw
    But i've tried to compile the rndis module, it failed... Look here :
    http://suzukube.blogspot.com/

    :/ Really don't know if it will work....

    PS : When i write W#GET i have an 404 error on the forum :/

    Same error with the kernel source. The kernel has no RNDIS entries. We have to rebuilt the kernel with the "is wireless" module...

    This is why everything Bug :

    I've tried to recompile the kernel but it was not easy at all... I never found the CONFIG_USB_RNDIS_HOST_MODULE in the linpus kernel!but it is in the Ubuntu Kernel... Strange :roll:
