I think the term 'driver' is used fairly loosely in the windows world,
probably meaning 'a piece of software needed to access a piece of

If so, then I have sucessfully used 'moto4lin' with my motorola C380,
using the USB cable from my MP3 player.

The actual drivers needed were already in the kernel. I gather it
uses /dev/ttyACM0 - at least that is the config setting that
makes it work - I don't see it in /dev when I look manually.

It lets me browse the filesystem on the phone, upload/download audio clips
and also graphical images.

Unfortunately I don't know much about phones, and there is a lot of stuff
which I really just don't know the purpose of. Even using the basic functions
of the phone is rather trial and error, as my instruction book is in Russian.

So far I have yet to work out how to do what I would really like to do,
which is backup text messages and phonebook data.

Most useful would be connecting to the Internet, but I really need to
subscribe to a service to experiment with that - and don't really want
to pay for a service unless I know it will work with Linux :-/

I'm afraid I don't know anything about the L6, so can't comment on the
appropriate software to use there.
