I usually just did a shutdown, and when it started to boot , hit the replace battery and took off cover, this time it didnt take.

I\'m not sure what you are doing here?

Just do a hard reset, then bring up maint. menu. Can you bring up maint. menu after hard reset?

not to get off subject, but where do you find a sprint pcs bluetooth phone.  I\'m about to leave sprint due to a lack of such a device.
thanks

How about adding CONFIG_FS_SYNC fix to the special kernel. Will it make this
kernel more useable?

The Z needs to be OFF, not rebooted, then do the battery/reset thing, and then hold down the OK key while turning it on.  I was confused by this at first as well.  Also, pay attention to the previous post about the name of the zImage and updater files, this definetly matters, i made the same mistake.

I shut it off with halt.. Then update. Had zImage and updater.sh on cf card. Same situation. Kernel shows yamade@yampc but speed with dhry21 is 147.296 so im very sure it didnt apply the kernel. I may look for a sharp updater , and rename back to zImage.bin, but it didnt work this way...

The pre-emptive patch does very little for the performance. Only v1.3 of the Special Kernel should be used now, which does NOT include the pre-emptive patch. The speed increase is due to a workaround for a bug in the PXA250 CPU being turned off. The workaround that is in the default Sharp ROMs effectively halves the speed of the CPU.

Thanks...  this kernel works for me and the touch screen still works though it did need recalibrating.  Even Kismet seems to be working in some fashion now.

Hey...
 Bravo.. it worked. User stupidity (mine) , well hard to read screen and when I had copied zImage to this name , it must have gotten some unreadable character in there, did a mv zI* zImage and it worked.

 Did need to recalibrate, no biggie.

Now.. the kernel says colin@paravel I think that is what Tumnus had posted. Good. This time when doing kernel flash it said success afterwards never got that before.

Ran dhry21 and speed now 229.497 instead of 147.296. Is this the appx mips speed? If so, UGH. The unit is supposed to be 400, and it is still only a bit more than 1/2 of that. Or maybe cat/cpuinfo says 397 bogus mips is more accurate?

I think I recall the program to change clock speed and I will try that, dont make it higher than 487 though , right. Is above all true?

Great job on kernel, Tumnus!!!

It works for me with a Symbol card.  I didn\'t find many references to the wpc12 card with Google, but I did find this quote about the chipset it uses:

{
FCCID PKW-WPC11-V29 (approved 11/7/2002) uses ISL3873B or Prism2.5
FCCID PKW-WPC11-V31 (approved 7/23/2002) uses ISL3871xxx  or Prism3
FCCID PKW-WPC11-V3  (approved 2/1/2002) uses \"

The PKW-WPC12 uses the TI ACX100 and to my knowledge never saw the light
of day.
}

If it\'s not based on the Prism chipset, you may have a hard time finding support for it...

So, how did you get wireless extensions to work with sharp kernel?
The linksys card is a prism based card.

\"It just works!\" ™

Sharp ROM, Special kernel V1.3.

Wireless worked with stock Sharp ROM, but Kismet did not.
Kismet works with the special kernel.

The only other problem that I had is making sure all of the
associated configuration files were present in /etc/pcmcia ,
i.e.:

spectrum
spectrum.conf
wireless
wireless.opts
wlan-ng
wlan-ng.conf
wlan-ng.opts

Hi,
 Not wireless, wireless extensions which is a prereq for wellenreiter.
Wireless worked from beginning, and I didnt have much trouble with kismet. Trying to get wellenreiter to work with tumnus sharp kernel.
From what I read, wellenreiter needs wireless extensions to run.

If this is not the case, I\'d love to know how to do it. Otherwise, I need to either find a kernel with wireless extensions and the errata fix, or recompile a kernel and add it.

Thanks

Wellenreiter didn\'t work? I think it should work if you made kismet work.
I believe that sharp/special kernels have wireless extension. kismet/wellenreiter
is another story because it requires monitor mode. But once you have kismet
work, wellenreiter should work.

I\'m going to look at the post about wellenreiter on qtopia. However, from previous posts it was mentioned that you needed to get wireless extensions to work to get Wellenreiter going.

Wireless extensions iwconfig is not enabled on sharp roms, or on tumnus rom. I will post my success or failure after I try offroadgeeks post about this.

Much thanks

Yes, Wellenreiter needs wireless extension. So does Kismet.
Type \'iwpriv eth0\' from comman line. When you see \"monitor\" in the list,
Kismet/Wellenreiter is highly likely to work fine.
