So, has anyone tried to compile the latest kernel for our Z's?

Xv 'just works', pxa270 overlay needs patching apps, since it needs a tedious and nonstandard way to setup the framebuffers, and the last time I checked angstrom was the *only* distro that has packages that can use pxa270 overlay with kernel 2.6.

That has been in there since 2.6.16 or something.

Sorry, should have mentioned that it had been missing for Akita as far as I remember.
In fact since 2.6.23 mplayer from the iwmmxt feed plays movies much smoother- I could not refrain from trying that out unsure.gif

overlay has been disabled for akita, not iwmmxt. You can't disable iwmmxt in the kernel, since it gets automatically selected when using the pxa270 cpu.

according to recent discussions on angstrom mailing list, overlay support has been found to be stable now for akita, so worth checking out angstrom again if you've a c1000.
