Hey all,

At http://hentges.net/tmp/Poodle-Kernel-2.6/ you'll find an experimental Opie image for Poodle with kernel 2.6.

Be advised that a few kernel related things are still broken (sound, SD/MMC and probably USB) but this preview should give you a good understanding of what is to come smile.gif

If you find problems with Opie that are related to the switch from kernel 2.4 to 2.6 please let me know but check the Kernel 2.6 Status Page before posting.

Have fun biggrin.gif

Hi CoreDump,

I just wanted to say I'm really impressed and happy with the progress I am reading about, and very happy that I donated money towards the 5600 you now have. Since the 5600 is my primary PDA I am not able to help test currently since certain bugs that are listed are too critical for me not to be able to use, but am looking forward to trying this out once things get a little more stable.

Best of luck and bravo on your speedy work!
steven

@CoreDump -> SD works for me... card: 256M Vikings

for example Calendar+Address+Backspace doesn't work on GPE from .dev

I don't know if you notice this but if you put the device in suspend/resume mode or change the backlight settings then the screen flicker for few seconds with horizontal lines...

Something I've played this weekend is creating a swap file via NBD, I need to post the .bb file... so far it works great with 2.6.

GPE in .dev + .oz is missing a few changesets, that's why I only uploaded Opie so far smile.gif

In what does that image differ from the normal 2.4 image?
I thought you can use a normal image with the right modules in /lib/modules

Any specific place to look for current dated updates by the 2 developers doing Poodle work? The status page on OZ gets changed but no dated information to tell when things are getting fixed. Maybe a blog with just little notes regarding what got fixed when and by whom and if other bugs are found where to report them to and where the latest test releases can be downloaded.

Thanks

In short: CoreDump cleaned most of userspace problems and some of kernel part. Now we need to go into kernel work where we do not have too many people.

I'm going to paste CoreDump's post from the 5x00 General discussions here so the OZ users can see it:

It took a bit longer than expected but here it is:
http://hentges.net/tmp/Poodle-Kernel-2.6/17-JUL-06/

The GPE version needs hotkey bindings (edit /etc/keylaunchrc for that)
Sound drivers are installed but currently you'll get nasty distortions after any sound is played.

There is a alsa-mixer configuration which enables perfect sound (after rebooting) since RP's sound worked just fine. After he installed my asound.state he got caught by the distortions, too. Sadly he overwrote his working asound.state.

Soo....if you manage to find the working settings (using alsamixer) let me know =)
from here:
http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showt...ndpost&p=135461

I'm listening to mp3s with xmms on my poodle and they sound very good.

I've installed: alsa-conf, alsa-settings, alsa-utils-alsactl, alsa-utils-alsamixer, alsa-utils-aplay... opened alsamixer and turned the volumn down.

Thanks CoreDump smile.gif

You're welcome biggrin.gif RP is the true hero as he reworked poodles sound driver.

You're not getting static noise at the end of the song / file?
Do me a favor and do a "cat /usr/share/sounds/beep.raw > /dev/dsp" and tell me if you hear a sound w/ distortions after the sound has finished playing.

If not, a copy of your /etc/asound.state would be appreciated smile.gif

The first test I had the screen taps and key clicks on, they work also smile.gif

The second worked fine with no static or distortions after the beep.

In both the opie and gpe versions, the g_ether kernel modules were missing after the initial install. After I added it in, USB works great. smile.gif

Once OE is writeable again, I'll have a look at poodle-2.6.conf. There are quite a few differences between the .dev and .oz version (.dev installs more modules etc).

Thanks for letting me know smile.gif

Thanks for your config, I'll test it once I get poodle to compile correctly again.

Hi,

I wanted to provide a bit of feedback regarding the poodle 2.6 kernel. I hope this is the best place to put it:

After I installed cardfs for Opie, SDL applications didn't work anymore. They gave me this error:

Unable to init SDL: No available video device

So I removed the libsdl-1.2-0 that came with cardfs and installed the one from the 3.5.4.1 feed and then it worked again.

Also, prboom-opie in the 3.5.4.1 feed seems to be a duplicate of the prboom.ipk. prboom-opie from the 3.5.4 feed is the same version so I installed it and it works OK.
