Hey Maslovsky, I'm having issues with the async writing to the SD card. What happens is that after a length of time, button presses become very laggy/hit-and-miss and after a while stop registering reliably. I wasnt sure what this was (never been a problem before), but I suspected the async writing - and after some tests (moved all my docs over to the flash and started accessing them there) figured out that that was the problem. The card is an old Sandisk MMC card which has never really screwed up, although it's no doubt slow.
My question: how do I change it back to sync (which should make it work properly again)?
Is
CODE
echo MOUNT_OPTIONS="sync,noatime">/home/root/.rom_options

..good enough?

Thanks,
Yz


Yes, that's it. Some MMC/SD cards may have problems in async mode. It depends on particular hardware.

Thanks Maslovsky. I will try that. Unfortunately, I may not be correct in my initial assumption that it was an async writing issue. It seems the button problem is still happening.

Anyone else getting button lag w/ this rom and TKC v2alpha3?
Thanks all,
Yz

After I flash my 5500 with the 64-0 rom It gets to the point where it sais
"Initializing /home". Then after about 5 min. It seems to try and run a binary file but fails. I get the following re-occurring error message :

"/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit: [: : interger expression expected"
"/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit: /usr/bin.rom/expr: cannot execute binry file


I am not too sure what to do at this point aside from trying to re-flash the rom again.

Any suggestions??
Thanks

First, a great, great thanks to maslovsky for his work ! good job man :-)
I'm using the 64-0 Cacko (+kernel patch + async config) on my 5500, and everything works fine.
Just for people who want to install it, BE PATIENT ! because on my 256 Mo SD card, it takes many, many times to install and to boot, but after it's Ok.

I've installed from the ZuG Download wellenreiter (1.x) , the install is OK but when I launch it, it can recognize my driver (wlan-ng) but not the interface (eth0).
If I'm issuing > iwconfig I have nothing.
After reading many post on this, I want to test with the onroco driver but I can't find the hermes.conf in /etc/pcmcia.
Any idea ?

Regards.

oXo

ninjai, did you prepare your SD card properly? It must be ext2 formattted.

oxo, you'll need to create hermes.conf file if it does not exist and add appropriate entries:

device "orinoco_cs"
class "hermes"
module "hermes", "orinoco", "orinoco_cs"

<add entry for your card here...>

You can copy your card info from wlan-ng.conf file.
Then copy /etc/pcmcia/spectrum to /etc/pcmcia/hermes

Also edit /home/QtPalmtop/etc/network/WLAN.conf:

CardType = wlan-ng spectrum hermes

This will make network applet recognize orinico drivers properlly.

Finaly restart pcmcia (/etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia restart) and reinsert the card.

After that issue the following commands:

cardctl scheme qpewlan0
cardctl reset

...and your card will be recognized by wellenreiter.

<snip>
Cacko Kernel is an updated kernel image for Sharp ROM 3.10/3.13 and compatible ROMs.

This NOT a full ROM update, this is only a kernel. You'll be able to continue to use your existing "Sharp ROM 3.10 or 3.13" after you flash this kernel update.
<end>

With that said I used the default memory layout zImage-sl5500-32-30 kernel. Note you must rename zImage-sl5500-32-30 to just zImage!

Thank you for the reply ,but that was not the answer to my question.I know it is only only an kernel updat not a rom update , but to me it is confusing because in the downloadsection there are severa different kernelupdates and i do not know which one to choose . I am just a little bit ignorant but I also read the preceding questions and answers .I also noticed that the icons still keep changing from the normal size to the smaller updated version size .And after asyncing the sdcard/home ,I did not notice any improvement on the rw-speed .I have an apacer sdcard maybe that can cause it?

In that case he would use the Cacko Kernel for SL5500 with 64/0 memory layout (home on SD), Right!

Hi,
Has anyone had difficulty running the proc modification for the sony-ericsson patch?

echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/irda/max_tx_window

I get the error

cannot create /proc/sys/net/irda/max_tx_window: directory non-existent.

I've tried this under the normal bash prompt and as su. /proc/sys/net/irda/ exists but I can't create anything in there (returns 'no such file or directory'). To be fair, I'm not sure whether I'd be able to touch a file in proc anyway.

Am I doing something stupid? This worked with the tkr rom and the previous cacko kernel. Using 64-0 on a 5500.

H.

Is there a way to use the 32-30 kernel with the cacko rom?
I like the rom setup but the home on sd is way to slow on my Sandisk card, even with Async and the new MMCSD module.

Can the 5500 / 64-0 Hybrid ROM with Qtopia 1.6.2 also use the 2.4.18 kernel update and async config? Is it neccessary to start the installation with a sharp 3.10 already installed? I've played around with the Hybrid rom a little and it's great - like having a new Zaurus again.
