note: scp not available

note: wget http://externe.net/zaurus/flash/kernel/keyboard/keysyms.tbl incorrect.

should be keysymbols.tbl (either that or the filename needs to change)


No, for the beta, you needed to unpack keyboard.tar.gz (available at the same place the beta kernel was) in the root directory. (The location wasn't clear in the instructions, but looking at the tarball contents showed the way.)

-- after rebooting --

lots of problems


It sounds like you didn't correctly unpack the modules or the keyboard stuff, either one.

my renamed nand backup disappeared.  *sigh*

This is not good. NAND restore is probably the only way out at this point.

bleh, my error I guess. I used the files from the beta, but followed the instructions that was from the fast-kernel (as per his original message)

note: this is using the Sharp ROM

ok, found the source of the problems. the keyboard and modules files needs to be extracted from / rather than the directories as listed in the instructions.

I think after that is when things go awry. Mostly missing things.

I should note that I had to put the "find ..." and "for ..." instructions in a .sh file, otherwise I wouldn't be able to type certain characters.

----- during boot -----

depmod: Can't open /lib/modules/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix/modules.dep for writing
modprobe: Can't open dependencies file /lib/modules/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix/modules.dep (No such file or directory)
mount: Mounting usbdevfs on /proc/bus/usb failed: No such file or directory
insmod: vtty: no module by that name found
INIT: Entering runlevel: 5

----- after boot -----
observation: sd card not recognized.

of course, this meant that all the programs I installed was not being found.

booting into console mode, and trying to manually mount /mnt/card resulted in:

modprobe: modprobe: Can't open dependencies file /lib/modules/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix/modules.dep (No such file or directory) (repeats 6 times)
mount: Mounting /dev/mmcda1 on /mnt/card failed: No such device or address

The entry in /etc/fstab showed:

/dev/mmcda1 /mnt/card auto noauto, owner 0 0

(everything points to the module not being found)

I tried to copy everything from modules.rom to modules, chmod 777 to modules.dep, but still the same results. oh well, nothing else I can try. Hope this info helps

#depmod -ae
depmod: Can't open /lib/modules/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix/modules.dep for writing

(I would have assumed this because of the mv modules modules.rom instruction)

#mount -n -o remount,rw /
#copy -R modules.rom modules
#depmod -ae (no error messages)
#mount /mnt/card
modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate modules block-major-60 (repeats 6 times)
mount: Mounting /dev/mmcda1 on /mnt/card failed: No such device or address

-----

A point of interest. I'm not sure what I did, but I do know I didn't do the 'format' and 'restore' options. I mucked around, and at some point when I rebooted, the SD card was recognized. No clue.

hello,

i have the same problems like ken and a mysterious one: the "f" key turns the
light on and off? i guess this is a bad joke:-) other keys seem to be okay.

i avoided the last step in the instructions: format/backup. backuping will overwrite
/home/root and therefore the settings of the find-for commands or not?

I've the same problems like ken; i'm using sharp roms...

I follow the README by guylhem...

Can't open /lib/modules/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix/modules.dep for writing

Infact /lib/modules doesent exist !

Is "mv modules modules.rom" instruction for Sharp Rom too ?

#depmod -ae
#depmod: Can't open /lib/modules/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix/modules.dep for writing

Any helps for installing new kernel on Sharp Rom ?

Didn't know a new version was up last october. Anyboy tried this yet or everybody lost interest in the fast kernel?

Version 20051020
- definitely fixed remaining keyboard issues with a new compatibility
mode
- boot in only 1 minute : removed DMESG.
Most of the remaining delay is due to jffs2 checks
- added other axim keyboard fixes

I've been using the October version for a while. It works great, although I changed a few config options to revert the new keyboard stuff, and recompiled it myself.
