> Fast (tetsuized?) Kernel For Sharp Rom, Does it help mplayer play wmv files better?

My 6000 is a favorite device, except for one thing. Video playback of wmv files! They are slow motion, and choppy. I wonder if installing the fast kernel as described here would help. I also have an NEC MobilePro 900C (with cmonex rom) that has the same processor and a screen that is ... how should I put it? AWFUL! Yet it will play these wmv files just fine. It has no video acceleration (that I know of). It kills me that my Z (with it's gorgeous screen) can't do this too!

Has anyone used the instructions linked to above? Are these instructions fairly dummy-proof? Will this kernel help with mplayer? And is this kernel 100% compatible with Sharp ROM and ipks I already have?

Well, I did it. I flashed the fast kernel using the above mentioned howto. One of the files it says to download is not there (keyboard.tar.gz). Another file (encsh) is there, but there is no instruction for what to do with it. But this does not seem to affect anything. The upgrade went fine. I think it feels zippier, but I have no way to measure this. I did have to drop in a couple modules (serial_cs.o, pelrun's >2GB sd module, and pegasus.o). So now it sees my 2 GB SD card. smile.gif

The only thing I see as a possible problem is that usb_ohci_tc6393 module is missing. Can I get that from someone? I believe it is used to connect usb devices. I'll have to see if thumb drives (and such) work without it.

Also, is there an overclocking utility? (It seems to me that there was one back when I tried Guylhem's rom.) or is the cpu self throttling?

EDIT: One more thing: The on/off button no longer suspends. I have to suspend from the start button menu. Any way to fix that?

EDIT2: After re-reading some old posts, I have discovered that the >2GB SD driver was pelrun's, not adf's. (sorry to credit wrongly) Adf did contribute numerous other modules compiled for the 6000.
