Do anybody have kernel for 750?
(NOT ver. 2.6.24 with broken g_ether)
It will be great if this kernel will support rootfs on sd
And tell me few word how can I flesh it and boot
(u-boot or altboot or kexec or something else)
Thank you in advance.

some work in progress from openembedded:
please apply standard partitioning and then flash kernel (rename it to zImage.bin).
This kernel boots a graphical bootmenu: the kernel is searched in nand, sd, cf,...but must be in /boot.
You have to create kernel-cmdline in /boot too.
Last thing, remember to edit your fstab and comment the lines referring to mtdblock* (if you boot sd you want /home on sd probably...)
Supports ext2, ext3, jfss2 and more...
mizar boot # ls -l
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 21 Oct 11 23:23 kernel-cmdline -> kernel-cmdline-2.6.26
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 68 Oct 11 03:14 kernel-cmdline-2.6.26
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 Oct 11 23:23 zImage -> zImage-2.6.26
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1358736 Oct 11 03:14 zImage-2.6.26
mizar boot # cat kernel-cmdline
console=ttyS0,115200n8 console=tty1 noinitrd dyntick=enable debug

Thank you very match.
My zaurus was covered with dust since I buy N810
I'll try it this evening.
Can you understand me how you place kernel in nand partition?
I remember that kernels >=2.6.24 doesn't fit standart NAND partition.
A half of year ago I play with modifying drivers/mtd/nand/sharpsl.c and u-boot to change partition number and size to fit new kernel in it.

I boot 188.8.131.52 using your kernel and kexec
But g_ether doesn't works
Do you know where can I get latest patches for sl-750?
Thank you in advance.

After the initramfs-kexecboot kernel I can send you the actual 2.6.26 and the modules, compiled for c7x0.
Honestly I did not test usb networking, but others (Jay7) are using it on akita. Please report any problem.

Thank you Andrea
usbnet works with this kernel.
I'll continue testing.
Do you know which Xserver works with touch screen?
I remember than Debian's Xserver doesn't work with ts.

After suspend rootfs on SD has a lot of errors.
Do anybody know how to solve?
