Talk:UsbNet on Linux


- Alternatively you can just download from the archive and extract it somewhere to your SD card and run usbnet.gpu. <- did NOT WORK for me (this step should be removed imho) --Jae686

- Could you please be a bit more specific about the problem? --dedeibel

- this step has consistently not worked for anyone I've helped - removing as part of cleanup. Looking at the script I think it's borked, the one on this page works Justthisguy 12:56, 27 October 2006 (PDT)

NOTE: @Justthisguy If by the archive you mean the file found at, then yes it does not work because the installation script is wrong. I have corrected it and tested that the newly installed g_ether.o works with my FC5 x86_64 2.6.18 kernel. ldesnogu
Yeah, that's the one I mean. It's just a lot easier to say, download this file, use this script. I think using the from the archive would just confuse matters. Justthisguy 05:08, 11 May 2007 (PDT)

What about linking 2 GP2X's?

I'd sure love to see the ability emerge for 2 GP2Xs to link up directly via USB (or perhaps the EXT port) and play a multiplayer game. It's still bizarre to me that GPH would have released a handheld without this capabiity - the very first GameBoy had it, as have its successors, the Game Gear, the Lynx, and many others.

Activating USB on GP2X

" Go to settings -> system on your GP2X. Enable "advanced menu extension" "

Maybe I'm stupid, but I have searched for more than 10 minutes everywhere on my GP2X-F200 how to activate USB (be it networking or anything else), and found nothing. Instead of "advanced menu extension", I found "USB Host" which seemed to fit, but activating it does nothing (lsusb doesn't list the GP2X or anything similar). Is there differences between models?

There is no USB networking on the F200 since GPH foolishly replaced the USB gadget chip with a built in card reader. Sorry. Orkie 10:31, 10 January 2008 (PST)
