Hi all,

Could I ask the one who made Special Kernel for SL-5600 to make a variant with built in ext3 suport. I dont know anything about making kernel and very litle about Linux so I cant do it myself. I`ll be very greatful.

Thanks in advance.

There's already an ipk with the ext3 kernel module that should work with the Special Kernel:

Sory but its segfoults :-)
tumnus
What segfaults? There's nothing wrong with that ipk as far as I can see. Maybe your download is corrupt

CODE
#su
#ipkg install ext3-module-1_sharprom_arm.ipkg
Unpacking ext3-module-1 ... Done
Configure ext3-module-1 ... Segmentation foult

If this ccould help I'm with SL-5600, pxa-250 sharp rom 1.32
I`ve downloadet it 3 times the same result.

It may have installed the files. Look for /lib/modules/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix/kernel/fs/ext3/ext3.o

If it's there, try:

modprobe ext3
Yasen
Yes it's there. Do I have to insmod ext3 & insmod jbd after every reboot of the z?
CODE
In /etc/rc.d/rc.local:

dmesg | grep EXT3
What is this?

Don't know. Have you tried? The seg fault was being caused by depmod, which isn't promising.

No idea. Is 'dmesg | grep EXT3' appearing as a file? Maybe a command was mistyped.
Yasen
It is from How do you do that? just below sdcontrol modifying.
tumnus
Oh right. They're just saying to put the line 'dmesg | grep EXT3' in rc.local so that when you boot you get lines from the system messages referring to EXT3 printed on screen. It's not necessary unless you want to see it working.
