Has quite a few interesting kernels and tools for hacking around with the Zaurus... trouble is, its in Japanese!

If you don't understand Japanese, or the Japanese model #'s for all the different Zaurus models, how can you translate to which file to download ... anyone able to explain what some of those direct-to-model links are, in SLxx00 terms?

(Can I just use a C860 kernel on a 5500? I guess if I build kernel source for the C860 using patch instructions, it gives me -also- what I need to build a 5500 target too, right?)

Oh, one other thing .. anyone know of other interesting Zaurus kernel hacker sites like this? I was quite happy to find it, even though its in Japanese!!

5600 -> B500
5500 -> Nothing

You cannot recompile the C860 source for the 5500, it doesnt contain the necessary drivers.

okay ... i don't know why the hell i thought Ced's Special Kernel docs were giving me what I needed to take care of the 5500, but I guess I'll go look for a complete 5500 build kit elsewhere ...
