I am interested to know if anyone is using Jaunty / Zubuntu with alternative kernels?
I really like the work that Cortez has done on Zubuntu and Jaunty now seems to be working well, but I'm not too fond of the Omegamoon kernel.
It's just downright strange. I cant use ssh as a normal user, I get all sorts of weirdo socket creation issues with various apps, and I had to diddle the dhcp client with setuid to get that to work. At the moment I am considering trying out the Yonggun kernel because I have had pretty good experiences using that with Debian.

What other kernels have people tried?

You should be able to use any kernel you want (Angstrom, Debian of various flavors, etc.). Just copy it to the appropriate place, install the modules, and off you go.

Keep us posted on this? (Including how you got something working) The Yonggun kernel looks like it has some very nice features...

Hmm, not too fond of the Omegamoon kernel?
How about an upgrade to the 2.6.30 kernel then. I just got a working version ;-)

I can't seem to open omegamoon.com
Otherwise this is perfect timing smile.gif

Thanks a lot.
I believe there is no difference between the C3000 and an akita so it should be working in the C1000 also ?

First of all, thanks to Cortez for all the job done on the Zubuntu.

I tried installing the zImage 2.6.30 on a SL-C3000, but the size seems to be too big for it's flash memory.
Could you reduce the size of this zImage to fit in a SL-C3000 ?

A lot of error messages as it boots, the gui comes up, but no touchscreen.

@ofels: There might be some minor differences between the akita and spitz, but I think support for both devices is compiled in
@jeana: I'll try that later. For now flash the multiboot kernel (details here) and setup a partition on SD/CF and copy the kernel into the /boot directory. This way size don't matter.
@adf: Try 'export TSLIB_TSDEVICE=/dev/input/event1' before starting the gui, that should help ;-)

Kernel bombs out after booting on Akita. Last thing it loaded was zaurusd, then a huge stack trace is spit out and it states:

(GPIO_SET_VALUE+0X0/0X6C) FROM SPITZ_MIC_BIAS+0x50/0x64 [SOUND_SOC_SPITZ]
with some more stack traces, however I could not type that fast. However this was the first one so I believe it is sound related.

All I did was moving /boot/zImage out of the way (by renaming it), copying the 2.6.30 image as /boot/zImage and unpack the modules archive to /, then call depmod -a

Update: I can move the snd_spitz_soc.ko module out of the way and it boots right away, then manually load the module via insmod and call /etc/init.d/alsa-utils restart.

This works.
And I can confirm the touchscreen issue.

Tried with Jaunty.

Great news!
I shall give it a whirl as soon as I get home.
I wasn't meaning to insult your efforts by the way, it's just that the kernel seemed a little bit strange to me in a number of areas!
Call me a bluff old traditionalist but I don't like being root, and I like to be able to ssh as a user! tongue.gif

O.K.

I've installed the kernel now, but I will post my findings on your blog Cortez as per your request!
