I like CED's guide, the last section is especially good. A big thanks CED
I've had my baby sl-5600 (got the 250 chip, but hey thats just adds to its character
) for less then 5 days, its now got the special kernel with the latest Sharp rom. U have to do a bit more reading to get things like iptables working but thats no biggy and its quite interesting if u like that stuff!
btw I left it on overnight with the media playing on repeat and no crashes *crosses his fingers*
Oh a few things that might make life easier... The links for the patches all work from the bottom of CEDs howto apart from the main kernel which has moved to
The Updater.sh I grabbed from the lastest sharp rom and remember the zImage file should be named zImage.bin and its a good idea if u have a spare sd card lying around (nice lil 8meg ones which no one ever finds a use for) to keep Updater.sh and zImage.bin from a working version incase somethign horribly goes wrong.
The dhrystone test really made me smile, thanks again CED
ps off topic if u run into a kernel incompatibility with kbdsim and you've installed the vnc server, u need to update that file. I think I spend more time accessing with ssh and vnc.
