Thanks for the feedback and the comments!

SCSI disk support is missing in the Sharp kernel and thus external USB disk cannot be used anymore with this new kernel. Try a depmod -a and you will find missing symbols in usb-storage.o
On pdaXrom, this does not happen. The USB storage devices are correctly loaded with SCSI emulation support.

Okay, the kernel is geared towards Cacko. The default config for the Cacko kernel has the SCSI disk support set as module (scsi_mod), which is different from the original Sharp kernel config. But it should just work okay, if the modules I provided are all installed and dependencies are created. The system should figure out what other modules are necessary.

QUOTE(Meanie @ Aug 10 2007, 07:52 PM)
Also, V4L support is missing on the Sharp ROM as well. On pdaXrom, when pluggin in a USB webcam, a webcam module and videodev.o is loaded and /dev/video0 is associated to the device and the webcam works. On Sharp ROM, even though the modules are loaded, /dev/video0 is not associated with the corresponding module for the camera.

Can you elaborate on what you mean by "is not associated"? Do the device nodes /dev/video and /dev/video0 exist in Sharp ROM? They do not in Cacko, you have to manually create them: mknod /dev/video c 81 0, same goes for /dev/video0
The problem is, I can't debug the problem since I can't find the USB cable for my cheapo USB cam (d'oh!). If you manually created the device node, does it work?

QUOTE(Meanie @ Aug 10 2007, 07:52 PM)
And lastly, hostap support also seems to be missing in the kernel for Sharp ROM. The hostap.o module is there but when running depmod on it, it also complains about missing symbols. On pdaXrom, the hostap module loads fine.

Okay, just to make sure, did you use the modules from http://www.katastrophos.net/zaurus/kernels...-modules.tar.gz and did you install them cleanly?
Cacko will work without installing those modules, the original Sharp ROM most probably won't. I should add a note about that to the README.

To verify everything, I just installed all modules again to an empty /lib/modules/2.4.20 directory, copied over the sharp_mmcsd_m.o and the aloha modules to /lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/block and depmoded all modules.
HostAP works okay after a reboot, no mention of unresolved symbols during the boot process.
Could you PM me the list of missing symbols that depmod spits out?
*



I noticed there were extra scsi modules and thus I extracted all the modules after flashing the kernel, but one of the modules in the scsi subfolder had missing symbols and thus my Z locks up when plugging in a usb hdd.

i made the devices nodes for /dev/video and /dev/video0 originally since they did not exist on Sharp ROM either, but it is does not matter. the modules load fine without errors, but a cat on either /dev/video or /dev/video0 results in a file not found error message.

I will need to reflash and test again when I have time. Will let you know when I get a chance to test it...

Still no luck with my Planex wifi card sad.gif
Still giving me odd
hostap_cs suspended messages.

What’s the max size of the kernel for the c3200?
built my first kernel only to get error to big smile.gif

thanks,

Okay, I have the feeling this might be caused by some other driver interfering. I think I enabled support for some wifi cards that were explicitly disabled in the Cacko kernel config. Perhaps this is the culprit? Got to check that once I get some free time.

Not sure, where the real limit is, probably somewhere around 1.4 MB. What does your .config look like? You can eMail or PM the file to me if you want. Did you use any of the configs I put into the archive? Those are probably good to get you started.

Okay, thanks for the info. I'll see if I can get some time to work on the kernel next weekend. Will flash the original Sharp ROM to see what the problem is.

On a sidenote, I've got some feedback from Tetsu. He's published a new version v18i of his patch set. It includes the modified audio driver.

If you are planning to do some work on the kernel, could you be persuaded to patch squashfs to a newer (and much better) version? (if not, I guess I'll get to it eventually, kinda busy in the near future, though) I posted the sources to the latest version I could find that claims to work with 2.4.20 here . The diference between 3.x and 2.x is substantial (better compression, larger file-size limit..) If it isn't really something you are interested in, or too off topic, no problem- of course.

Hi,
I also tried the new kernel and wm8750mixer on my C3100 und it works without a problem. Many Thanks to eviLjazz for the good work!

Success on C1000 with Cacko 1.23 :-). Thanks very much!

B.t.w. the Cacko banner does not show during kernel bootup. Instead the default Tux logo shows. Guess that has something to do with the updater.sh app?

that has nothing to do with updater.sh

the kernel itself has the logo compiled into it and the Tux logo is just the default linux logo which the cacko kernel has replaced.

So any news whether you will be releasing your music player? I'm looking forward to using it as it looks much better than Xmms.

BTW are you developing for pdaxrom or Cacko/Sharprom?

I really hope to have the first beta version of Quasar Media Player out next weekend - just like wm8750mixer for both Cacko and pdaXrom.

Update: For the current status please check my comments on the site linked to above.
