Full Version: Hostap On Sharp Rom 1.01 Jp?

So I got a new Zonet ZCF1100 that I'm trying to get set up. It's been "discussed to death" on these boards, but the solution requires hostap which doesn't ship with the Sharp rom, only with OZ and Cacko. Until I get the cash for an SD/MMC card (y'know, one that works instead of my 2GB one wink.gif I can't really switch roms, so I'm wondering if anyone's gotten hostap to compile on SL-C3100 + Sharp 1.01 JP or the equivalent?

I've made a few steps towards trying it but I've run into a few (annoyingly administrative) problems. Such as /lib/modules/2.4.20/build/ and the .config underneath it don't exist, but the makefile expects them. And my somewhat stripped down local copy of gmake chokes on one of the $(warning) directives -- which is fine of itself, I could just remove it, but makes me wonder how well it'll work on the rest of the file, which means I'll have to see if I can't get my crosscompiler to work on it...

you can use the cacko crosscompiler an kernel 2.4.20 for do a kernel with hostap support. I'm now using OZ but you can copy the cacko scripts and kernel (testu?) for the sharp rom.... I prefer the cacko rom... you not?

I have a crosscompiler (OSX->Zaurus) which seems to work. I've never done much crosscompiling work so the issues've been more of ferreting out which parts of makefiles etc need reconfiguring :)

As I mentioned, part of the problem -- either compiling locally or crosscompiling -- is that the /lib/modules/2.4.20/build/ directory is missing on the z and there's a file in there that the hostap makefile is expecting to include. I can try taking a look at Cacko or OZ to see if they have a reasonably approximate version of that directory.

It's not that I disprefer cacko, I haven't actually looked at it much. It's more that I don't have an sd/mmc card to switch it (temporary) and that -- shamed to admit it -- I'd like to keep around some of the proprietary software that comes with the Sharp rom. Also, I'm working on some development for the z so I'd like to keep a factory rom around for testing on. (Thirdly, I have mine set up to do a japanese-english hybrid localization, how are cacko and oz for that? I don't know.)
