3.5.4.1 Kernel 2.6 Testing On Tosa/6000
« Reply #15 on: July 23, 2006, 05:04:26 pm »
I've also been experimenting with considerable success to use a CF bluetooth card for PAN networking,  using the following entry in networks:
Code: [Select]
iface bnep0 inet static
        gateway 192.168.100.1
        broadcast 192.168.100.255
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        address 192.168.100.2
  #pre-up cardctl resume
  #pre-up sleep 1
  pre-up pand --connect xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
  pre-up sleep 1
  post-down pand --killall
  #post-down sleep 1
  #post-down cardctl suspend
the commented out  lines were my experimentation with leaving the card suspended - when I plug it in, it automatically turns on whereas I'd prefer to keep it suspend when not in use.

My only problem seems to be that when I've used wlan0 and bnep0 that the Z doesn't suspend any more... in fact, its behaviour gets very odd, it kind of half suspends - screen blank but backlight on with cursor top left, then un-suspends and wifi turns back on again!

does your bluetooth card support suspend properly? I remember hrw cursing a few bt cf cards for not being able to suspend properly.

it does if I've never brought bnep0 up; I can "cardctl suspend", resume etc. It was also fine on cacko when I used to have an 860.

hmm, in fact, if I pull the bt card out, I still can't suspend the Z. I'll play some more.

meanwhile I've added to the wiki.

p.s. it's a PANBT0101M non-branded one I bought cheap off ebay to try as an alternative to the socket revision E card I had, and found that indeed socketE cards can lock up under very heavy loads.

I need help on describing the alarm's when suspended. 

What application is the alarms from?
Is this still and issue in the 2.6 kernel?

I do not have this problem since I do not have alarms on my Z so I am not the best person to descibe it but I can put the bug in if I can get more information.
[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=136026\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]

I'm assuming you're talking about alarms not resuming the unit when they occur while the unit is suspended.  I'm pretty sure that's fixed unless there's some other issue I don't know about.  In the other thread, dirk siad it's fixed, and they work for me (I just tested it) on the latest image.

this is what I needed to hear.  I could nto find a bug in OE about this issue so I was not sure if it ever got reported other then in the forum.  I may later try to come up with a test for this that could be used on angstrom check list for new releases for this issue...

EDIT: By "latest image" I really mean, "latest GPE image."  I don't know about Opie.

GPE is all I have been testing.

on the old kernel 2.4 (sharp) the touchscreen was available as /dev/ts (which was a pipe).

please can someone tell me what the replacement driver is in the beta 3.5.4.1/2.6 tosa distro?

thanks!

oh, so there's no actual device then.. bummer. /dev/ts is used by tomtom app which I am trying to kludge to work.

No, I meant you could write an app using tslib to emulate /dev/ts (the clean way) or you could look at /dev/input/event<number> and symlink that to /dev/ts (ugly)

trying to use konqueror in 3.5.4.1 and for some reason it's ignoring the proxy settings? I have tried "a.b.c.d:n" as well as "http://a.b.c.d:n" and neither work, konq resolves the site address and tries to connect directly!

can anyone else confirm this is a bug or user error so's I can submit a bug report if necessary.

  # cd /dev
  # ln -s /dev/input/event1 ts
...

  $ /home/tomtom/bin/ttn
snip...
  Initialized touchscreen


thanks... I won't know for a while whether this will work or not, but it allows me to carry on my tomtom hackery.

I am trying to find or build kernel-module-uinput-2.6 for tosa so that I can uses my Targus IR keyboard and test zkbdd and kbdd to see if they work on Tosa with the 2.6 kernel.

I can see it is included in the spitz, c7x0 and akita machine feeds so I am guessing I am doing something wrong when I am building linux-openzaurus or should it build with that?
