Thanks C-Guys!

I was poking around the driver for their WiFi card to investigate something. Then, I realized that they completely replace the sharp_sdmmc kernel module with their own SD/SDIO stack. So just for fun, I installed it and surprise, I can now read, write, and mount a Sandisk 2 GB SD card. So far, it's been working very reliably.

Now, the catches:

1) It works fine on my C760 (running Cacko 1.12). But, when I tried to install the modules on my 6000, I got kernel oopses. So, it may be very sensitive to the model/kernel that is running. This is not that surprising since C760 is one of the few models listed as supported on their website.

2) vfat filesystems are fine. I had some problems with ext2. I fixed it by reformatting my card with "mke2fs -b 1024 /dev/mmcda1". This driver doesn't seem to like block sizes > 1024.


Anyway, if you want to repeat my experiment, just download and install this ipk, and reboot the Zaurus:

Ok, I've attached a test module for the 6000. No guarantees this thing will even insmod properly, let alone work. It's not like I actually have a 6000 to test it on... biggrin.gif

Remember, it's only for older-style 2G and 4G cards. SDHC cards will not work. Also, remember to rmmod the original sharp module before you try this out.

EDIT: I realised this morning there's a bug in this, it won't work (it'll probably identify 2G/4G cards as just 1G.) Will fix tonight.

Pelrun,

I'll settle for the old SD!!!!! If you really make this work on the SL-6000 with the stock ROM and kernel, you are going to become a celebrity among Tosa owners...... biggrin.gif

GO pelrun! And sincere thanks for attempting this. No matter the outcome, I really appreciate it.
