Hi all,

to reach the goal of having the 2.6 Kernel completet I want to first report the actual status of 2.6.20:

UCB1300 related stuff:
- audio -> NO (but there is code from 2.4)
- touchscreen OK (allready mainline)
- switches OK (I will send a patch to rmk to get it into mainline)
here [1] is the patch.
- battary status NO (but shouldn't be that hard to implement)

S3 latch stuff:
This latch is used to switch some GPIOs and the LEDs I also think that it is responsible for the power button. But I didn't found time to figgure it out.

There was a patch for 2.4 which created files in /dev to access the options this would be a nice Idea for 2.6, too.

Else there is the possibility to give it to the input dev system (the button and the leds).

MQ200 (Video)
There is a driver from zecke but it has a little bug[2]. Here [3] is the driver as a 2.6.20 patch.

The first target will be to debug it.

Later it would be great to have hardware acceleration.

This part is quite difficult - I think.

Smartcard support:
NO there is no smartcard support but i have read about a old 2.4 driver here on the forum [4].

Mods support:
MMC/SD NO
Bluetooth NO

Hopefuly we can get all the parts done and get it into mainline. I will try to do as much as I can but my time and my C skills are limited. So any help is very welcome.

regards
nice

2 If you boot your SIMpad and there is a crapy Tux boot a 2.4 Kernel first. This will bring the SIMpad in a state where the 2.6 driver will work. You have to do this everytime your SIMpad was disconnected from its accu.

thanks for this update!

I don't know what 2.4's audio code is worth, has anyone ever /heard/ it running?

BlueTooth should work out of the box in 2.6, since it uses the second serial interface.

Do you think alsa will be the right choice for a new audio driver?

It's the only sane choice

If you are interested in the ongoing of the 2.6 development please check this site [1]. It takes too much time to keep it in sync with this forum.

i know you're in lack of time. But let me ask one question biggrin.gif .
Is there any simple .gz package i may grab to have quick look into the complete patch?

Doesn't matter if it is a pre-copy of the OE stuff or something like that!

Edit: I found something at opensimpad

If you got a newer one, tell me!

Thnx

Hi Scholbert,

you can found the actual development state (for kernel-2.6.21) at

http://slackpad.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc...nel-2.6/2.6.21/

And sorry, there is no single patch file for now.

I hope there is something helpfully for your Skeye Sl Pad project smile.gif .

Greets,

Hi mister_data,

thanks for the hint.
You're right, i started working on the 2.6 kernel implementation for the skeye pad.
Some parts are similar to the simpad (e.g CS3), other's are not (e.g. graphic) tongue.gif .

At least the simpad patches will help me to navigate through the kernel and you helped me to navigate the web rolleyes.gif !

Regards,

scholbert
