A few quick questions.

In the new release 1.0 rc3 (or rc4 that's supposed to be coming out tonight)

Is the now famous "Fast Kernel" already a part of the rom, or does it come with the stock kernel?

Also I see that the various keyboard issues seem to be fixed BUT, can a mouse be used with the Guyhelm rom like the stock kernel/Sharp rom can with cwaig's fixes? or are those already incorporated into the rom? If not what would I need to do to get usb mouse functionality with the Guyhelm Rom?

Um while I'm thinking about it, how does the Guyhelm rom handle IR keyboards? My ThinkOutside Stowaway worked on the the standard sharp kernel with the irk package installed. Is the same fix valid here, or is that already integrated into Guyhelm Rom as well?

And last but not least, are there different memory configuration variants with Guyhelm? For example we use the os installed on an sdcard in the same way we used to do with the old cacko rom's and the sl-5500's and achieve a 64-0 memory config to maximize the mem availability for running programs on Guyhelm/sl-6600l?

Thanks a bunch,

Thank you!

I just finished sending you a donation! (anyone reading this who is using Guyhelm's Rom should stop what you're doing and go do the EXACT SAME THING!)

This is abnormal for me however in that I donated before I even had a working functional install of a product. I've read through the rc3 thread and the workaround's are WAY out of my league. I'm either doomed to wait for rc4, or hope that someone can sit down and send me an email telling me line by line EXACTLY what to type and what to do in order to get the major bugs fixed.

(My apologies, I'm just that dumb. I can usually muddle my way through detailed How-to's but I truly have no understanding of what I'm doing other than following the instructions!)

Guyhelm, I also have a brand new still-in-the-box Think Outside Stowaway IR keybard that I'd be happy to donate to the project if you are interested in taking on that issue. Just let me know if you want to tackle the problem and where to send it etc.

I'll make more donations as the Rom becomes useful to me, but I need to see that it will actually work for me with my particular hardware/software interests first. However; even if I have to abandon it for my own personal use, I still have no regrets with making a blind donation to a project that has already proven to be very useful to many users!

Thank you for your hard work and the support and value you add to the Sharp Zaurus SL-6000 community!

Feel free to email me when you release rc4 or when/if you can put together a detailed set of instructions (maybe a mini-How-to) on how to get my integral wifi setup, ipkg's installed etc. etc. etc.

Cheers!,
