I have noticed that the sl c3000 uses kernel 2.4.20 and the sources are available on sharps site.
I would like to ask wether it is possible to use the new kernel (2.4.20) with future OE releases, than the old 2.4.18 rmk one.

IMHO the only reason we are using the 2.4.18 is because of the binary only sd driver from sharp. We should ditch the SD thing (its a propriotory closed format) which has been hindering us from moving to a newer kernel for a long time. We should instead write/use a existing MMC driver and forget about the whole SD thing.

There is a lot of hype about OZ moving to the 2.6 kernels, well that will anyway break the SD compatibility as there is no SD driver for the 2.6 yet, so in the meantime till a 2.6 zaurus kernel comes out I suggest that we move ahead with newer 2.4 releases than that 2.4.18 release.
