Adf,
I just downloaded your latest kernel and modules, but before I start installing, I have a couple of questions, just to be sure I do not screw up everything! :-)

The modules installation should be done following Guyhlem Howto I suppose, but in this case, shouldn't we need updated modules links in home too? Or do we not?

Your modules files is 6 mb big, is there enough space for it with the deletion of the whole Opera 6.2?

Any other points of attention?

I am eager to test it and see if the BT card is working!

Thank you,
Adalberto

That 6M file is the kernel source files. What you need is the kernel image, i.e. the other two zImage files. And you don't need to go through all the steps in guylhem's how-to

just do the following (a regular kernel update). I've tested myself last night, no problem at all.
CODE
put consolescroll, zImage (ffpe or noffpe), updater.sh in the root of CF (vfat)
suspend, hit reset
power up while holding down "OK" -> update -> CF
wait for 1min until it says "update successful, please reset" ->hit reset.
power up as usual
(remove the confilcting file usb_ohci_tc6393, specified by adf)
mv /lib/modules.rom/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix/kernel/drivers/usb/usb_ohci_tc6393.o /mnt/cf/backup (just play safe)

I'm not that slick.

just dl the tarball.
extract it.

have a look at the directories--you will find stuff like bluetooth and usb in /kernel/drivers.
grab likely looking modules, and pop 'em int place in modules.rom--likley looking sub directory.

then just insmod 'em and see if they work. play around with various pieces (some o that stuff is c objects that aren't modules--a bit of trial and error is called for)

I basically compiled a bunch o modules that people can pick and choose from.the deal is more like find the right module put it in a likely dir, insmod it and try it out. if it doesn't work delete it and try again when you get stuff working, let us know-!

Hello

The new kernel is approaching. Today I got my first success with the rescue kernel update (ie using my own kernel to reflash a new copy of itself) which means the 57 Mb rw / partition is only a matter of hours (depending on my free time :-) - all tests are good. I must just run a jffs2 creation script and flash that.

Today I fixed additional keyboard problems; it is now a pleasure to use the internal and an external keyboard. I recommand Axim/Stowaway bluetooth, because that's what I'm using and you can be sure it'll work as expected but any standard pc USB keyboard will be fine too.

I plan to release an updater.sh which will :
- update both the normal kernel and the rescue kernel to the newest keyboard model
- create a single 57 Mb / partition in read write, which everything where it should be. No stupid symlinks or whatever.
- maybe update to qtopia 2.11 because I just noticed qtopia 2.11 roms where starting to be available...

I will see how they works because I still have problems with qtopia part of the keyboard fix. I would like to release soon, then fix later. Documentation on the flash process (because adf had a problem with the files I gave him) is also very important to encourage further hacks of my rom.

Documentation of the keyboard changes would be interesting to C3000/C1000 users who also can use usb external keyboards; and any zaurus user with bluetooth (CF...) using a bluetooth keyboard.

Anyway hopefully I will start looking at 2.11 soon. I'm quite interested in compatibility tests, ie how good do non free apps (opera, hancom...) work under 2.11; and whether soft float is used. So if someone has some free time and can give 2.11 a try please do and report how it works.

That may be the good reason for a initial release using 2.11 or sticking to 1.7

I tried 2.1.1. what trolltech released was based on OZ 3.3.6. I think that this might mean recompiling the whole thing to work on your 6k setup.... Wasn't there something about video acceleration in shaprs lib qpe though? If so, maybe it would ake sense to do the compatablilty libqtopia thing as has been done already for 1.7 by maslovsky

I'm looking forward to the 57/7 NAND setup. While I admit to not having replaced / successfully, I would think that if you are doing a whole new config you can take your Z and either pull a rom off of it (best solution) or do a NAND backup and post the sys006.dbk, thus saving much labor and confusion for all.

can somebody give me an definitive answer about the conflict between bluetooth and fast kernel?

Is it because of the inherent nature (i.e. soft float, such) of fast kernel cause trouble of bluetooth or is it because the bluetooth module built into the exsisting fast kernels not working with my BT card.

if it is the latter, adf: could you do me a favor to build a kernel without BT built in? so i can install the working bluez package myself.

Thanks

I think they are still on my server at anyerlildog2.com/zug you'll probably have to download some extraneous crpwith 'em, though.... I built then tarred with minimal sorting. kernels should still be there as well.


There is a nice kernel at tetsu's site, too If you can't find it in english, Bam's site has a link to it.

do the tetsu kernels support overclock like the Guylhem kernel? I have to admit that the tetsu kernel "seems" much faster than the stock kernel. I have installed the overclock info and battery applet from the guylhem but i cant tell if it makes any difference.

haven't tried it on the 6k. it does overclock on the 3100, I'm pretty sure it will on the 6. try glxgears at different clockspeeds and see what you get
