Hello

If you want to try a kernel that can go to 530 Mhz, has (or should have - did that tonight) video accel,preemptible kernel for enhanced responsiveness, a faster floating point emulation, better keyboard support to map new actions to long keypresses, usbd-storage to use the Zaurus as a usb flash disk, firewalling, and various security backports for the 2.4 kernel check http://externe.net/zaurus/modules.php?op=m...order=0&thold=0

Along is a special libsdl (with a sample fz.sh file to start snes9x) that work in 240x230 portrait mode and can be mapped to hardware keys (address, agenda, home, menu...) i.e. you can use your Tosa like a gameboy - you don't have to open the keyboard again to play. [that could also be interesting for 5500/5600 owners]

With both the new kernel and this libsdl, I can downclock the kernel to the minimum and still get near full framerate with sound at 240x230 (use fz.sh). Sweet. The only problem is I don't know why it can't display in 480x640

Feedback, tests, bugreport welcome ! I know the SDL rightmost 20 pixels are incorrectly drown on the left handsite- working on that, and I didn't compile pcmcia ethernet/wifi support - that's because I don't have either on my 6000]

The kernel I compiled w/ ext2 didn't actually work as well as I had hoped (Not the ext2 part - that worked fine) So I switched to the no-ffpe kernel, manually insmoded the ext2 module, and it seems to work too (After removing the 'owner' part from /etc/fstab)

I've actually got a little script I run when I log on that insmods modules for me to save me the trouble of doing it myself. I'm sure I'm probally missing a couple modules, but I haven't run in to any problems yet.

Here's the script for anyone who is interested

CODE
#/bin/sh

insmod /lib/modules.rom/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix/net/p80211.o
insmod /lib/modules.rom/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix/kernel/drivers/usb/usbcore.o
insmod /lib/modules.rom/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix/kernel/drivers/usb/usb_ohci_tc6393.o
insmod /lib/modules.rom/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix/net/prism2_usb.o
insmod /lib/modules.rom/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix/kernel/drivers/block/sharp_mmcsd_m.o
insmod /lib/modules.rom/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix/kernel/fs/ext2/ext2.o
mount /dev/mmcda1


I'm sure it could be kludged in to /etc/rc.d, but I haven't got around to doing that quite yet.

Here's also my fstab so you can see what I removed


CODE
/dev/mtdblock2  /               jffs2   ro,noatime      1  1
/dev/mtdblock3  /home           jffs2   defaults,noatime        1  2
none            /dev/shm        tmpfs   size=1m,noauto  0  0
/dev/mmcda1     /mnt/card       auto    noauto  0  0
none            /dev/pts        devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0  0


On the original fstab, there's 'noauto,owner' on the /dev/mmcda1 line - removing owner and manually insmoding ext2 and the SD slot seems to make it work.

I'm thinking about backing up what I've got on my Z now, reflashing the original NAND, installing just the fast kernel and SL-6000 SDL, adding the insmod script to /etc/rc.d and making a NAND image of that - that way people could just flash the NAND and save themselves the trouble of figuring out how to glue all this together. I'm not too familiar with the details of the GPL though, so I might not even be allowed to do something like that.
