hello. my sl-5500 shuts off when i hold down the right arrow for more than a few seconds. i've come across a few posts and internet sites that i think will fix my problem but i've never made my own kernel for my zaurus and i'm afraid i might brick it.
this is a patch for the kernel that is supposed to fix the problem:
i'm using this cross compiler:
and i'm using this kernel:
and i'm trying to follow these directions but they don't explain what to do after "make dep":
i did a make and wound up with a vmlinux that's about 2 megs. which sort of frightens me because the pdaxrom image that i flashed my z with was more like 1 meg. but the compilation process went smoothly. i'm pretty sure the kernel was compiled correctly.
is it safe for me to rename vmlinux to zImage and reflash with it and the pdaxrom beta1 initrd.bin?
also, and please forgive my ignorance on this, but do i need to compile new modules? the kernel versions on the old and new kernel appear to be exactly the same (2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix). is the new kernel going to be compatible with the modules that pdaxrom 1.1.0beta1 comes with?
if pdaxrom doesn't start after i flash my z, will i be able to reflash with the old zImage or will my z be bricked?
