A new beta of the fast kernel is on :
If everything is ok it will be released tomorrow. Please flash it and report any potential problem.
To install it, carefully follow the instructions in externe.net/zaurus/kernel, especially if you are using a sharp rom. You **MUST** replace your modules by modules.tar.gz and you **MUST** unpack keyboard.tar.gz. If you don't, the keyboard will not be usable.
- finer battery report (1% by 1% instead of 100/75/25/0)
- faster NWFPE backported from 2.4.30
- usb keyboard AND internal keyboard AND bluetooth keyboard now work fine all at the same time, including all the keys (keypad etc.) without requiring any external binary. F1 to F12 are mapped to the Zaurus buttons (ex: press on f1 for the calendar, F6 for the userdef key, f7 for light etc)
This hopefully marks the end of keyboard problems. keyboard.tar.gz will be improved in the future to make shift+fn give 8 bit chars (ex: shift+fn+e could give é (e acute) while shift+numlock would give control codes (ex: ctrl-c, ctrl-a)
Many thanks to nilch (http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showuser=1034) whose generous donation of a USB mini A/A cable made the finer test/fixes of the USB keyboard possible. [the best way to have some specific hardware problem fixed is to get me the same hardware :-)]
