Oh, and Meanie. Could I ask a favour & get you to correct the permissions of the directories in the package, specifically /etc, /etc/rc.d, /etc/rc.d/init.d & /etc/X11 (just the ones I can remember off the top of my head). 99% of my work on the Z is in a terminal as a non-root user using sudo & I keep having to reset these dirs back from 700 to 755 after I install the sp. thks
*

done. file permissions fixed. also added sltime...
*

Not quite. The directories need execute permissions as well. Currently:

CODE
drwxr--r-- root/root         0 2007-05-24 16:34:42 ./etc/hotplug/
drwxr--r-- root/root         0 2007-05-28 07:26:37 ./etc/rc.d/
drwxr--r-- root/root         0 2007-05-24 16:34:42 ./etc/X11/
drwxr--r-- root/root         0 2007-05-24 20:36:33 ./etc/X11/kb/
drwxr--r-- root/root         0 2007-05-25 14:26:46 ./etc/X11/kb/Akita/

As well, 'fraid I have to report a problem with the sp's for corgi's. The xpdf binary isn't compatible, crashing with an 'Illegal instruction' error. It took me a while to notice this 'cause I don't use it that often. I checked out most of the other binary's that are included in the sp & haven't found any issues with any of those.
*



thanks for letting me know. seems like umask is set too restrictively in the new release.
i will need to recompile xpdf since it was compiled with optimizations for the newer clamshell devices..

the choice now is to have a separete sp pack for 7x0/8x0 , or have an unoptimised (no xscale or iwmmxt) binary for all.

If I had my choice, I would go with a seperate service pack for the 7x0/860 since I'd hate to loose any CXXXX optimizations. cool.gif

I'm using pdaXii13, but for what its worth it seems to me that one of the advantages of pdaX generally is optimization.

in that case, wait for a separate sp for 7x0/8x0 devices...

I like to second an afformentioned bug. I have sp3 and my socket card is not working. I have the firmware in all the right place.

I really appreciate all the work you do. Thanks, meanie.

grog -- could you tell me/us a little about the latest (198+sp4?) on 860?

I still can't see a clear message if it's still too early to change to this or if
it's stable... etc.

Thanks!

Well, AFAIK the only thing that it currently breaks is the xpdf binary, which I've made Meanie aware of. Just reinstall xpdf after. On the upside, updates to wifi-radar are nice to have (i.e. it actually works now). But I don't use all of the applications that are touched, so your mileage may vary.

Bottom line is, I'd recommend going for it, but don't kill the messenger if something does break smile.gif. We're still using a beta product, after all ph34r.gif

How is the work on 2.6.21 coming on ?

Still applying patches... waiting to reach a point where I can atleast boot to the kernel...


At the time of 2.6.21.1 most patches for 2.6.20.6 could be applied and kernel did boot but with a few important things braking:
the power button no longer suspended but "apm --suspend" worked and power button resumend,
some nand flash utils broke (but this is also true for 2.6.20.6),
zaurushw thing broke (but this is also true for 2.6.20.6),
wierd behaviour in X with the touchscreen (but this is also true for 2.6.20.6)

Kernel is now at 2.6.21.4 but I've been watching the changelog and found nothing addressing these specific issues (especially the power button one) although there were some other ARM fixes.

I extracted a patch sequence from OZ for the 2.6.20.6 (that with very little work could also be applied to 2.6.21 kernels) along with the actual patches ... gis can build a bootable kernel with some broken things. If anyone likes to try PM me (Adrian .... I already sent you that work).

I'm a feeble programmer ... if anyone has kernel experience and is willing to write patches for the proken things I can try them out ;-)

(sorry for the last quote at the bottom)

Ok, I may give it a try. I've been waiting a long time for the next non-beta stable release... seems like it's just never gonna happen.

With any rom -- I just need a good gcc/g++ and Qt 4.2.3 (or later).

I may hunt down where the rom is and give it a try.

thanks!

Scott

one question -- for these SPs.... the ones for 198 are the ones for 700/860, correct?

Also, do I have to apply sp1, then sp2, then 3... or just sp5?

It seems like I just do "sp5" ... right? no others before?

197 seems for 700/860 and you do just SP5

fixed some more keymappings, the menu (so you can see the whole menu now without it going off screen), and also sudo.
you can now create new users and run everything as that user instead of root.
