    There are a few tethering programs that will work on the CliqXT... though not having root of course limits us from running ones like Wifi Tether or Barnacle Wifi.

    Nonetheless, there is PdaNet, however that does not support Linux as of yet.

    You can more than likely get EasyTether to work on Fedora. Download Alien:
    Alien ? Convert RPM to DEB or DEB to RPM Taufan Lubis – Ubuntu Linux

    Alien will allow you to convert .deb to .rpm which is used in Fedora.

    So download the ubuntu drivers from EasyTether's website ( http://www.mobile-stream.com/easytether/drivers.html) and converted them to an .rpm using Alien and you should be able to install it and get it to work.

    Also there is another method to tether using Proxdroid: proxoid - Project Hosting on Google Code
    However, this is one of the more 'complicated' ways.
