After a LOT of Googling I am not finding any answers to this question I
have, so hopefully someone here has forged this path and can enlighten
me? I have set up Eclipse to develop for Android and gotten some success
with using a couple of the Android simulators. (Most don't seem to work
out of the box) Anywise I now would like to use a real Android device (I
have an ASUS pad to play with, will be getting an Android phone shortly
though I dunno yet which one) and understand I can do so using a USB
connection.

I presume (correct me if I am wrong!) I must use a peer to peer (also
called a host to host or crossover) USB cable with Type A connectors on
each end? (at least for the pad, dunno what sort of connector the phone
will have...) Looking around I found several companies selling crossover
cables but all I can find are supported with Windows drivers. From what
I can grok, it appears that one must have a special driver in order to
have a protocol that will allow communication to take place between two
hosts making each appear as a device to the other, hence the need for a
special driver. Trouble is, I am developing under Linux (openSuSE12.1 to
be exact) so before I go and order one of these cables I would like to
know if A) Does Linux/Eclipse support these cables out of the box? B) If
not, can someone recommend a cable the is supported under Linux/Eclipse?
C) If so, I would still appreciate recommendations on what cables others
have had a good experience with....

Marc..

P.S. I didn't find an Eclipse newsgroup dedicated to Android development
under Eclipse, so my apologies in advance if this is an inappropriate
place to ask this question.

Google developed their Android development tools on top of Eclipse.
Eclipse forums don't provide support for Android development. You'll
need to find continue your search. Note that there is a sticky post at
the top of this forum that includes links to some forums that may
provide Android help.
