I'm trying to get my DKU-5 + Nokia 6200 working under Linux; I ordered
this cable because I saw several people apparently using it successfully
in the list archives.

But now I'm getting confused.  The Linux-USB Device Overview at implies that it's not
supported, even though several people seem to have successfully used it
with the pl2303 driver.  My cable isn't recognized by the pl2303 driver;
it says

hub.c: new USB device 00:1f.2-2, assigned address 2
usb.c: USB device 2 (vend/prod 0x421/0x800) is not claimed by any active driver.

and that device ID (0x421/0x800) isn't listed in any drivers under
usb/serial.  (I checked 2.4.25 and 2.4 BK current.)

So I hacked it and added that device ID to pl2303.c.  Now I get

usb.c: registered new driver serial
usbserial.c: USB Serial support registered for Generic
usbserial.c: USB Serial Driver core v1.4
usbserial.c: USB Serial support registered for PL-2303
usbserial.c: PL-2303 converter detected
usbserial.c: PL-2303 converter now attached to ttyUSB0 (or usb/tts/0 for devfs)
pl2303.c: Prolific PL2303 USB to serial adaptor driver v0.10

and a nice oops when I try to open the port (cat /dev/usb/tts/0).

The cable I have *appears* to be a real Nokia product; it has a sticker

"Nokia (R)
Type: DKU-5

and it came with a pressed CD of Windows software, a manual, etc.

Can anybody who has a working DKU-5 let me know what their software
configuration is (USB modules, dmesg output, etc) so that I can get back
on track?
