> 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?

speculatrix,
I hope someone can find that reference. Especially someone who knows how to use it. smile.gif
I am not holding my breath. sad.gif
In the mean time, this fast kernel seems to help some. My only regret is not being able to use my power button. I checked the really long fast kernel thread from about 2 years ago, and the power button was an issue that seems to require a patch to the kernel, and kernel recompile. Anyone know of an easier solution?

I assume it's because the keyboard, which is implemented as an array of I/O (not even sure if it's a cross-bar) driver doesn't generate the scan code for the power button?
Therefore, I'd guess you could write a module which set up the I/O port and sent a signal to userspace to trigger suspend & resume?

this is all my guesswork as I know very little about such things, never having written a linux device driver (I haven't done embedded programming in 15 years, back then it was all 8051's and 80188's!)

what do you mean "can't use the power button?" Did you also install the modules for that kernel from tetsu's site? I think my power button is ok- it turns the thing on and suspends/unsupends the Z. Was there something else it was supposed to do?
