Full Version: Tetsu Kernel 18i

I tried flashing the latest tetsu kernel 18i to get the patch for the new sound module.
http://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?s=&...st&p=166174
I have Cacko Lite 1.23 installed
It said it updated the kernel, and says to reset. I reset using the switch in the battery compartment.
I get the same problem that I had last year when I tried flashing tetsu kernel 18b
I get these errors repeated many times
CODE
ERROR: /usr/sharp/etc/launch.conf -- can not open file
ERROR: launch.conf -- can not open file
INIT: id "ln" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes

Then my Zaurus stops responding for 5 minutes, and I get the above errors all over again.
It's stuck in a continuous loop.
I made a NAND backup just before trying the tetsu kernel, so I can always go back to that.
How can I use the latest tetsu kernel?

I restored to Cacko and discovered that /usr/sharp/etc/launch.conf is a symlink to /usr/sharp.rom/etc/launch.conf
/usr/sharp.rom/ is ro isn't it?
Has anyone sucesfully upgraded their kernel in Cacko to tetsu 18i?

the tetsu kernel is for sharp rom only. cacko is a bit different and has its own slightly tweaked kernel...
for cacko use the kernel build by eviljazz

You can download it here:
http://www.katastrophos.net/zaurus/kernels/v55/

The kernel includes all of the latest Tetsu patches + all patches from the Cacko Kernel + some patches from the 2.4.x pdaXrom Kernels.

Thank you Meanie for the Tetsu kernel explanation. I always thought since Cacko has the Tetsu kernel, one could upgrade it to later versions.
Now I know that is Not the case. (I always wondered why it didn't work).

Thank you eviljazz, I used kernel-fastfpe-cachedfb for my C3100 and install went smoothly.
