> 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?

It appears that Guylhem has recently taken down his 6000 related files. I was one of the people who tested his ROM a couple years ago. It had some really nice features including the faster kernel, and builtin bluetooth support. But a couple of show stoppers were the circular simlinks, no right-hand rotated fonts, the on-off switch was set to control something different, and no gui for WIFI setup. (Well the last two are not really show stoppers, but inconveniences.)

Regarding the Tetsuized kernel, NOT Guylhem's ROM, just the kernel he had on his site, as reported earlier in this thread, the only thing I found not working was the physical power switch.

So I guess when I have time, I will try the Tetsuized kernel from:
consolescroll, and updater.sh from here:

It appears that the kernel gets renamed zImage, and ONLY consolescroll, updater.sh, and zImage should be on the memory card when doing this update.

And do I need the modules from:
http://tetsu.homelinux.org/zaurus/kernel/v...es_v16a_arm.ipk ?

Also I would need to add the big SD card module I guess.

I believe this next link is to the original sharp rom: (at least it is labeled "normal kernel")
http://tetsu.homelinux.org/zaurus/kernel/v...zImage-6000.bin ???
