I went back to my xp machine and tried again but still the same problem.

Here is my Kindle-Fastboot.inf that I made with inf-wizard.exe

You're obviously having a non-standard problem. Some people will try to look into it. But getting nervous and bumping the thread will not help to solve it any faster. Please do not *bump* threads before they are at least a few days old. Keep in mind that this is a forum "staffed" by volunteers, not a 24/7 online helpdesk.

I'm trying again in ubuntu but I don't even know if it is connected and in the proper mode.
In windows I can look at the device manager to tell.
Someone please tell me how to check in ubuntu.

The most general way - -

Use the kernel message buffer display and clear command:
sudo dmesg -c

Change something in the hardware set-up (as plug in a usb device).

Use the kernel message buffer display command:

Code:
core2quad ~ $ dmesg
[ 8946.736034] usb 2-1: new high speed USB device number 2 using ehci_hcd
[ 8947.127009] usbcore: registered new interface driver uas

[ 8947.129068] scsi6 : usb-storage 2-1:1.0

[ 8948.136710] sd 6:0:0:0: [sde] 2797568 512-byte logical blocks: (1.43 GB/1.33 GiB)
[ 8948.242018] sd 6:0:0:0: [sde] Write Protect is off
[ 8948.242021] sd 6:0:0:0: [sde] Mode Sense: 0f 00 00 00
[ 8948.351699] sd 6:0:0:0: [sde] Write cache: enabled, read cache: enabled, doesn't support DPO or FUA
[ 8948.574350]  sde: sde1
[ 8948.860206] sd 6:0:0:0: [sde] Attached SCSI removable disk
Which is the kernel reporting that a Kindle in "Storage device mode" has just been added to the system.

See the next to last line above?
That means the Kindle storage device is now known as /dev/sde1 (in this specific example - names are dynamic - yours might be different).

Thank you for taking the time to explain that.

I will try it out.

If I have successfully connected the kindle in diags mode vs fastboot mode I am hoping that the kernel message buffer display command will give different results for each mode.

Different USB device ID for the Kindle in different modes. So yes, you can tell.

Once you see that the kernel found the device - try:
lsusb

or
lsusb -vv

or
man lsusb
for details.

I tried what you said and it looks like the kindle is not being recognized in any mode in ubuntu.
I didn't see any instructions for installing a linux driver in the sticky.
Am I supposed to install any driver?
I guess I'll try charging it some more.

No (additional) drivers required.
The kernel loads the drivers required for those that ship with any of the distribution kernel builds.

@loltun: run Linux directly on the computer, not in a VM - it's as simple as booting from a Live CD. With the VM, you're only introducing yet another layer of potential trouble.

^-- This. Virtual Machines invariably mess with the USB implementation.

I an confirm slackware does not "play very nice" with the kindles.
That would be as far as I can help without more details...

Feeling ambitious?
Port Ubuntu Mobile to the Kindles (@ixtab: no Java)

@twobob : Meant to mention that it had been announced yesterday but I guess we all forgot.

I'm personally not ambitious at all in that regard - which is also why I never joined in on Android ports or Duokan. I generally like the default FW, except for a few details - and I'm having fun (at least, mostly) with exactly what I do.

PS: Not sure how I should understand that "no Java" thing - positive connotation or negative?
