Wouldn't it be much better to get the 2.6 Kernel done on the 6000 and do the optimizations to that Kernel.
So here is the question to you geeks. Would you port the 2.6 Kernel to the 6000L.


I second this request. But where to take these geeks from? biggrin.gif Capable people are rare, especially kernel developers. Those who are good, develop for a living and don't have motivation to do it also in spare time. Understandable, if you ask me.

This leaves the part-time developers like us for doing (also) kernel work. I have been calling people to help Richard and John but no one appeared yet. Richard only has a C7x0 (a C760) so this is what he works on. At the moment we are concentrating on finishing this step, because it also has consequences for userland which I'm working on. When the C7x0 2.6 initiative is finished and we still are motivated and have time, then we will tackle the 6000.

You can change this order by participating biggrin.gif

My intention is that the differences between Cxxx models and 6000 models isn't that much. So we can participate from the great work of Richard (se my link) and should only customize the 6000 specific settings.
I think when the 2.6 Kernel is available for all Zaurus models all Custom-Roms will jump on this train, i think/hope ;-)

thinking along the lines of the 2.4 unified kernel being quite good?
My guess is that you are right, but that some model specific twaeks and modules have to be done before releasing it.

are you sure you removed the stuff rom opera? is this a clean new install?
from a fresh factory sharp setup, be sure to have removed the pdf studd from oper. it should go.

In my experience, simply deleting the PDF stuff from opera, following Guylhem instructions, was not enough and I always ended up with missing space errors while decompressing.

At the end I simply deleted everything related to opera (substituted with the later installation of opera 7.55), and then everything worked.

I was thinking that, if we delete opera and maybe java (both replaceable with IPKs), we could have enough space for a fast kernel with all of guylhem additions AND the missing modules form the standard kernel (ie LAN and USB KB and mouse modules) and maybe bluez drivers.

I know I should try it by myself, but I am not able to access a linux machine for doing the cross compilation anytime soon sad.gif
Nonone interested? unsure.gif

what are you missing in the kernel?

I have a setup that I did by starting w/ a clean sharp install.... deleting the hitachi ohci usb module and opera (though I may have deleted opera after) customized guylhem kernel w/ ext2 and 3 v4l usb-to-serial usb audio and usb bluetooth dongle support compiled in.

I removed nothing of guylhems setup, except the bluetooth ( I have a 6000l and would only use a bluetooth usb dongle, which claims to be supported on the "boot scroll") I did make his modules (with the exception of the usb hid & mouse/kbd support in the usbdriver section) into "hard' parts of the kernel.

My point is at 1.3M the kernel fits in nicely, only 1 sharp module absolutely HAD to be deleted (it was causing lockups,) and the browser can be reinstalled.
I use a tiny targus usb mouse and belkin ir kbd when I want my z to be a laptop replacement...
I'd be happy to send a copy of my zImage.... zug doesn't seem to want it as an attachment
edit: I have support for netcat usb ethernet in there too....

Could you please post your nand backup... I wouldnt mind taking a look at it, I personally gave up trying to install the fast kernel because I really wasn't sure what I was doing...

I put the lb sdl in /usr/lib then link to it with a link of the "right" name --run something from command line that requires libsdl and you ill see what name is expected.

Adf, I would be interested in your kernel, as I would like to try using an external mouse.

Another think I am trying to setup is BT.
Did you, or someone else manage to setup bluez with the fast kernel?
