I am trying to attach a Palm Z22 via USB to my fully virtualized Win XP.
Dom0-System: CentOS 5.3 x86_64 (Kernel 188.8.131.52.1.10.el5xen)
XP: 32-Bit Professional
USB Palm: Bus 002 Device 007: ID 0830:0061 Palm, Inc. Lifedrive / Treo
650/680 / Tunsten E2/T5/TX / Zire 21/31/72 / Z22
I found some hints that I have to put
usb = 1 and
usbdevice = "host:0830:0061"
into my DomU-config.
When I start the DomU without the device switched on I get (qemu.log):
Warning: could not add USB device host:0830:0061 I/O request not ready:
0, ptr: 0, port: 0, data: 0, count: 0, size: 0 I/O request not ready: 0,
ptr: 0, port: 0, data: 0, count: 0, size: 0 Triggered log-dirty buffer
When I start the DomU with the device switched on I don't get this error
- but the usb-device does not appear in XP.
- why does the device not appear in XP?
- is there a way to dynamically attach the usb-device (it is not present
the whole time!)?
- in the CentOS documentation abot xen (virtualization guide) I found an
option "usbport" but I have found no exaple on how to use it - would
this work instead?
-Configuration_files.html search for "usbport".
