after flashing the kernel

CODE
depmod -ae
give me the following error (it also shows up in the startup sequence)

CODE
depmod: Can't open /lib/modules/2.4.180-rmk7-pxa3-embedix/modules.dep for writing


Besides
1. X/Qt won't lauch
2. the USB connection through cradle is not working

worked
WLAN, ext2 SD (by fixes), ext2 CF2

I think it would be very beneficial if somebody could compile a set of instructions on how-to load this kernel on to the 6000. In fact I think this kernel could be used on all zaurus models, so it wouldn't really be 6000 specific except for loading the config file. I haven't tried it myself which makes it hard to write up any kind of documentation on it, but I'm going to try to start something on www.oesf.org to hopefully get the ball rolling.

http://www.oesf.org/index.php?title=Kernels will be the page that has a link to the page about loading this kernel.
xjqian
I've started from a clean stock rom. now the problems are solved.

CODE
depmod -ae
no error message
I think it's related to I once installed the opie-sysinfo before the kernel flash. It somehow confuses the kernel info.

no problem with usb connection/syc with desktop also

X/Qt won't launch

I forgot to install zlib1.1.2

WOW, with the fast kernel at the maximum frequency, The unzipping of the debian-big package only takes 3-5 mins, which instead took me a whole hour (maybe less) before.

well, anybody helping me where to put the special libsdl? what additional links i should make? And spcifically, how to make the crimson field run with the special libsdl on 6k. Thanks in advance

edit: i got crimson running beautifully,except the key orientation upside down. just put the libsdl in the other folder with the other libsdls

I don't know if this post belong to fast kernel or Debian+X/Qt, maybe both.

After I installed the fast kernel (even at low speed). I encounted problems in the following applications in my debian box

firefox (keen to freeze, i.e. if you try to access the menu bar esp. bookmark. It even froze up the whole icewm sometimes)
Konqueror (freeze or crash often)
thunderbird (hang during lauching from xterm)
xpdf (hang during lauching from xterm) This is the part puzzling me the most. How?

abiword and gnumeric works as snappy as before.
I don't know if it's the kernel problem. But these program do work fine with the stock kernel. smeulas, do you have the same problem?

I haven't run in to any of those problems, but I'm using the no-FFPE kernel..

flashed to the no-FFPE kernel. now everything works nicely as before, only faster. seems intensive graphical drawing like pull down menu, popup window, minimize, resize, etc. screwed up the FFPE kernel before.

Konqueror still crashes often though (lots of warning and error msg when launching as well), like loading the zug pages. But this is also what i experienced with the stock kernel and it should be a debian question.

Thanks for the pointer.

Hello

Sorry for the ffpe related problems. I tried various option to get the best performance, and I didn't get real bugs with ffpe but looks like many people did.

Well I'm glad people are finding this kernel useful :-) I have to update it - along with libsdl. Can't promise any date - I'm always late :-)

I never tried the FFPE enabled kernel since I heard some people having issues with it, but I can say that the non-FFPE fast kernel w/ your custom SDL is by far the most useful zaurus thing I've ever installed, and I cant thank you enough for putting it together!

I love this kernel.. I am infact using the ffpe version, without any problems at all.
The only differenci i see is that games work better with ffpe. As a caveat though, i don't do any real precise engineering or anything with my 6k.

I really appreciate this stuff. It made my 6k much much less of a headache. and definitely made sharprom a valid option again...

But... since you are already revving up your toolchain.... any luck compiling a softfloat mplayer? I'd love to give it a spin if you have (though the reglar mplayer is working pretty nicely)

and.... any thoughts on pushing qtopia 2.1 through the soft-float chain to see what happens? Though that sounds like a headache waiting to happen.... and with a maybe limited payoff to boot. I had heard rumor that the hancom stuff installed with hancom libs on a softfloat system would be ok though......

As SA said,
thanks, it makes a diference.
adf
update issue/repeat post. oops.
xjqian
The fast kernel is awesome. thanks for keeping up the good work. however, I do have some question related to the kernel thing.

First of all, my original understanding of a NAND restore is to wipe out everything and the system should look exactly as before. but the kernel flashing make me confused

(1) on ffpe fast kernel, I restored NAND image from stock sharp kernel
I found except for the alphanumerical keys, all the other parts of my keyboards were all maped wrong. Other symptoms like reboot didn't work, neither from Qtopia nor from console. The styles in Appearance setting are missing. If I chose to rotate screen to the other orientatino in the Appearance, my z froze. All sorts of weird things. I have to flash it back to the stock kernel+rom to correct for it.

(2) on no-ffpe fast kernel, I restored NAND image from ffpe enabled fast kernel
The "dang dang" notification sound everytime you reboot are gone. Some game from Znester won't work anymore. That's the only ones I noticed, but there is a difference. The "dang dang" sound didn't recover even I swich back to the no-ffpe kernel.

So, can some body explain the relationship between kernel and NAND to me? seems my understandings of the basics are wrong here?

And I'm pretty sure the firefox, konqueror etc. frozen problem in debian must be caused by the ffpe as I switched back and forth several times. adf, how did you get around this problem?


btw, when I switch between no-ffpe and ffpe fast kernel, I assume I don't need to replace those lib/modules and symb links again. Am I right?

Thanks a lot for the kind message. I'm happy I'm helping someone besides myself. There're other tweaks I should post - let's say I have a very "customised" SL6000 :-)

Bust first, a clarification for the precedent message with a nand question: nand reflash may or may not overwrite the kernel- depends on what you flash. On a sl6000 you have 2 (!) copies of the kernel and 2 filesystems. A couple is normally used, while the other kernel+filesystem couple is used only during reflash (so you can reflash if shit happens)

Then that reflash process only reflash what it's asked. If it does the kernel - fine. If it doesn't... you just overwrite the normal filesystem, which creates a weird previous-kernel+flashed-filesystem couple used for normal operations. How can you find out if your flash is correct ? Use uname -a. Read my flash pages to simply overwrite the kernel and keep the rest intact -because there's no reason to reflash everything unless you do something very bad, likely under root with the root partition mounted rw.

That being said, I unfortunately don't have enough time to do all I'd like, so I have to make an agenda. Here's my current agenda for the Sl6000:
- 1. learn qtopia. Will help a lot with many issues (phone app, calendar, ...) I have. And I should have done that much earlier !!
- 2. update the kernel to match tetsu's version. take advantage of that to fix the kerboard problems (basically I tried to remap internal keyboard so it would play nice with an external usb keyboard in console mode. I also wanted to remap events to short/long apps keypresses. Bad idea. I screwed up big. I'll also compile iptables modules - will help a lot.
- 3. try to tweak the libsdl a little more. I am very interested in cwaig acceleration stuff. But I can't do that alone :-) mplayer acceleration would also be very interesting.
- 4. then play with softfloat. a libsdl/mplayer/emulators suite with video acceleration *AND* softfloat would be interesting : I think vga video playback at a good framerate might be possible
- 5. make hostap work with usb wireless card. possible - someone did hack that, but a) with an old version of hostap cool.gif only gave the source to Jouli who couldn't send me a copy (lost file IIRC). Has to be done again from scratch, but would help with kismet, wellenreiter and co.
- 6. finally try to do a full rom with softfloat. this goes last because I'm still curious about the opie/qtopia situation, and because more people could do that besides me - with more efficiency since they're used to do roms :-) But with the opie/qtopia story, I still don't know exactly what I should do.

Anyway IMHO the most important for the SL6000 right now would be video acceleration.

From the chip documentation:

.7.3 2D Graphics Acceleration
TC6393XB supports the acceleration as below.
- Fill
- SourceCopy
- StretchBLT
- LineDraw

By using this hardware accelerator, you can realize improvement in a performance and reduction of power consumption.

6.7.3.1 Fill
The “Fill” function of TC6393XB supports as below.
- Rectangle field range: 1 ~ 1,024 Pixel x 1 ~ 1,024Pixel
- Fill color: 16bit color
- Support function: Raster Operation (ROP3)
6.7.3.2 SourceCopy
The “SourceCopy” function of TC6393XB supports as below.
- Rectangle field range: 1 ~ 1,024 Pixel x 1 ~ 1,024Pixel
- Support function: Raster Operation (ROP3), Transparent
6.7.3.3 StretchBLT
The “StretchBLT” function of TC6393XB supports as below.
- Rectangle field range: 1 ~ 1,024 Pixel x 1 ~ 1,024Pixel
The “StretchBLT” function of TC6393XB does not support Raster Operation (ROP3) and Transparent. And, it is not possible that the expansion and reduction ratio of vertical is different from one of horizontal.
6.7.3.4 LineDraw
The “LineDraw” function of TC6393XB supports as below.
- Rectangle field range: 1 ~ 1,024 Pixel x 1 ~ 1,024Pixel
- Draw color: 16bit color
- Support function: Raster Operation (ROP3)

Yet there's no information on how to do that. And even if there was, I don't now ATM how it should be implemented in mplayer/libsdl. So congrats to cwaig for the work he did - he is making that possible. From the mere possibility to a full implementation in mplayer and libsdl, there's a long long way! If there're other SL6000 hackers, let's try to do something !
adf
outstanding agenda.... all the stuff that is needed and I don't know how to do and am not likely to learn in time.
thanks again smile.gif

Hi all (guyhelm - got your PM the other day, just hadn't got round to replying...)

The TC6393 accelleration stuff doesn't require any extra kernel level support at all 'coz the API's exposed via the fb driver.

I'd kind of worked out that it could do some of the stuff that's listed in the info Guylhem posted from looking at the kernel driver header files. Not had much time to look into it any further (rectangles working, line draw partially working, but not fully).

What I was thinking was that as a first step it'd be a doddle to add the hardware rectangle code I've already got working to SDL for a first cut at a proper SL6000 specific build, but it won't actually get us that much of a performance boost in everyday use.

But....what I'm also thinking is that I could take the Sharp QTE library, pull out the QWS objection file from it, add in a patched version where rectangles are drawn using the hardware and voila - super fast Qtopia on the SL6000. That would really be worth the effort if Sharp haven't done it already, as there's a lot of rectangle drawing in the Qtopia GUI....

(of course, I'll try to work out the rest of the hardware stuff as well)

SDL won't be for everyday use, but it can easily be tested (SDL test apps display framerate...) and it should be much easier than recompiling qtopia. Moreover since we don't have sharp non-free extension (ex: libsl, libdtm...) many non-free apps won't run on a free built.

I'll try to take care of hostap/usb. Besides that, it might be interesting to include Z axis to the touchscreen driver - especially for Petite Peinture.. I've got a patch from Wolfson if you want to give it a try.

Slight misunderstanding there - what I intend to do is a hack of the Sharp supplied QPE binary library - it hopefully won't impact on compatibility at all wink.gif
adf
fabulous.... with any luck at all we will see Qtopia2.1 Rom from Qtopia (according to lpotter) guylhem's kernel/libSDL with further refinements and cwaigs sharp QTE hack arriving in the near future. Hammering them all together might make something pretty interesting smile.gif

I've compiled the kernel with iptables support and support for my Socket ethernet card and these two things work very well, along with the SD module from the Sharp ROM. However, I'm unable to use the wi-fi card. I've copied the p80211 module from the Sharp rom and have loaded it, but when I try to connect with the wi-fi card, my Z freezes and need to be rebooted. What could be wrong?

When I was messing around w/ the Fast Kernel, I noticed that I had to insmod a bunch of USB modules or my wireless would do just what you're describing.

make sure you have all the following modules either compiled in to the kernel itself, or insmodded

p80211.o
usbcore.o
usb_ochi_tc6393.o

Updates:

* I just found the second CF in my sled is fully accessible even the battery in the sled is depleted or removed. Thanks for this feature. However, are there anyway I can view both batteries status from the battery-changeCCCRapplet. or put it another way, are there any alternative methods to change CCCR without installing the applet?
* the backlight (aka. rotation) button is a little buggy. in portrait mode, i can turn backligh off, but can never turn it back on afterwards. in landscape, i can turn baklight on, but can never turn it off. anybody else got this problem? besides, I have to hold a certain time (sweet spot) to get the rotation work properly. holding it too short or too long will just keep the screen refreshing, but no rotation.

Hello

I have to tweak battery-changeCCCRapplet code. I am starting to play with qtopia so it should be possible.

Regarding the light/rotation problem, this is due to my keyboard experiments. It will be fixed in the next release.

Hello all,

i have one question.
The 2.6 Kernel will come to the Zauri. But till now only for 5xxx and Cxxx models, but not for the 6000.
Wouldn't it be much better to get the 2.6 Kernel done on the 6000 and do the optimizations to that Kernel.
So here is the question to you geeks. Would you port the 2.6 Kernel to the 6000L.
Here is the status off the current porting: http://www.rpsys.net/openzaurus

Thx for taking this in consideration

Bedman
adf
an optimized tweaked 2.6 on the 6k is kind of a holy grail, I think. It is, (like most development) beyond my skill. I'd sure love to get my hands on one though smile.gif
The thing is, it only really makes sense in a custom compiled qtopia rom or in openzaurus., since ( I think, am I right?) that it would not be compiled in gcc 2.95, but rather 3.4.

I second this request. But where to take these geeks from? biggrin.gif Capable people are rare, especially kernel developers. Those who are good, develop for a living and don't have motivation to do it also in spare time. Understandable, if you ask me.

This leaves the part-time developers like us for doing (also) kernel work. I have been calling people to help Richard and John but no one appeared yet. Richard only has a C7x0 (a C760) so this is what he works on. At the moment we are concentrating on finishing this step, because it also has consequences for userland which I'm working on. When the C7x0 2.6 initiative is finished and we still are motivated and have time, then we will tackle the 6000.

You can change this order by participating biggrin.gif
Bedman
My intention is that the differences between Cxxx models and 6000 models isn't that much. So we can participate from the great work of Richard (se my link) and should only customize the 6000 specific settings.
I think when the 2.6 Kernel is available for all Zaurus models all Custom-Roms will jump on this train, i think/hope ;-)

Bedman
adf
thinking along the lines of the 2.4 unified kernel being quite good?
My guess is that you are right, but that some model specific twaeks and modules have to be done before releasing it.

are you sure you removed the stuff rom opera? is this a clean new install?
from a fresh factory sharp setup, be sure to have removed the pdf studd from oper. it should go.
amdonati
In my experience, simply deleting the PDF stuff from opera, following Guylhem instructions, was not enough and I always ended up with missing space errors while decompressing.

At the end I simply deleted everything related to opera (substituted with the later installation of opera 7.55), and then everything worked.

I was thinking that, if we delete opera and maybe java (both replaceable with IPKs), we could have enough space for a fast kernel with all of guylhem additions AND the missing modules form the standard kernel (ie LAN and USB KB and mouse modules) and maybe bluez drivers.

I know I should try it by myself, but I am not able to access a linux machine for doing the cross compilation anytime soon sad.gif

what are you missing in the kernel?

I have a setup that I did by starting w/ a clean sharp install.... deleting the hitachi ohci usb module and opera (though I may have deleted opera after) customized guylhem kernel w/ ext2 and 3 v4l usb-to-serial usb audio and usb bluetooth dongle support compiled in.

I removed nothing of guylhems setup, except the bluetooth ( I have a 6000l and would only use a bluetooth usb dongle, which claims to be supported on the "boot scroll") I did make his modules (with the exception of the usb hid & mouse/kbd support in the usbdriver section) into "hard' parts of the kernel.

My point is at 1.3M the kernel fits in nicely, only 1 sharp module absolutely HAD to be deleted (it was causing lockups,) and the browser can be reinstalled.
I use a tiny targus usb mouse and belkin ir kbd when I want my z to be a laptop replacement...

Adf, I would be interested in your kernel, as I would like to try using an external mouse.

Another think I am trying to setup is BT.
Did you, or someone else manage to setup bluez with the fast kernel?

Adalberto
adf
I'll send the kernel (or a link) when I get home from work (about 8 hrs from now) or sooner if i can get the time to move stuff around on my home network via secure shell. I would attach it here, but I guess ZUg doesn't like attachments that big.

I don't have any bluetooth devices,i have a 6000l, and usb bluetooth support is an either/or--you can have bluetooth support in the "bluetooth section" (on a make menuconfig), or you can have usb bluetooth dongle support in the usb section. I went with usb bluetoth support.--my CF is pretty much dedicated to drive space.

I'd be happy to try one with regular, but no usb bluetooth for you if the one I send isn't quite it.

What bluetooth device are you using? 6000w? cf card? usb ?
amdonati
Thank you very much adf.

I use a socket CF BT card (rev. F).

I tried to install the latest bluez drivers from Tumnus I found in another ZUG thread, but while they install correclty, I cannot really talk to the card.
I also tried guyhlem bluez I found on his webpage (under the SCO BT headset topic), but I cannot install them, neither with the graphical installer nor by commandline.

That's why I was checking if you could connect with BT and how.
Adalberto
adf
my knowledge of buetooth is about zero.

Do you know what driver you need? the chip in the card? anything that will help me pick what bluetooth stuff to include? there are a bunch of options in the blutooth section....I will pick the best I can and hope it works... any info would be appreciated.
adf
you, or anyone else who wants it should be able to get 2 versions of guylhem's kernel from my site.
the zImge is the one I am rtunning today, the zImage.bt is a bluetooth experiment I haven't tried. Remember to start from a sharp image, and remove (at least) the hitachi ohci module and leave the keyboard and mouse and hid modules (the rest, except sd) are negotiable, I think

the site is anyerlildog2.com

good luck. lemme know if there is a problem
amdonati
Thank you very much adf!

I tried to connect to your ftp, but I received an error.
Could be my proxy server in the office that only allows http via 8080.
I'll try to download them this evening from home.

Regarding BT, I Have a normal socket rev F. card, which is normally well suppoirted by the bluez drivers hanging around in ZUG.
But for some reasons I could not make them work under the fats kernel.
I'll give a try to your kernel and see what I need to install in order to have it work (I suppose I do not need the kernel modules....

edit:I can connect from opieftp.. ftp should be ok
I simply guessed and then added as much support as I thought would compile on the .bt kernel. honestly i am not entirely confident that it will even boot.
if it does boot, I have hopes for it though.

silence......

Did you manage to get the kernels? I am hopeful this is a good sign,,,,,

Hi adf,
sorry for my silence, but as I said, from the office I could not connect to your ftp site.
From home I managed to d/l a ftp client and am now downloading your kernels.
In the meantime I am restoring the sharp kernel.
I'll try your kernels, starting from the BT one and let's hope!

I do not have still a usb adapter (looking for it), but I'll try tumnus BT ipk and I'll let you know if it works.

Do you use the USB BT dongle?
Does it works?

Thanks for the help!

Ciao,
Adalberto

I have no bluetooth devices.... I compiled it in, like the svt0680 camera support, and the various ir networking options, as a sort of "just in case" measure.... If I had to use BT, I think I would use the dongle with my Z in "laptop (with the mouse and keyboard) mode" For controlling remote devices, I think wifi will serve.

Soory, another question.
The Hitachi ohci module is the usb_ohci_tc6393.o, correct?

Thanks,
Adalberto
