Help New Kernel For Pdaxrom

my idea is always have a updated kernel, like a 2.6.23 with CFS and other, and if a "central kernel" (not especific the OE kernel) can be used, we can focus on distro develop like important softwares..
CFS is currently (as patches for 2.6.22) totaly unusable. Maybe it was changed in 2.6.22-git, but I don't know.

2.6.23 does not exist yet (2.6.22.1 is current stable at kernel.org).
2.6.22-git will become 2.6.23 one day... Currently they just haven't changed version yet.

[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=165183\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
Currently I use my c760 for testing (so I flash the kernel and reboot basically).

As soon as I've some time I'll look into qemu which I gather should be able to emulate akita.

Incidently the EABI kernel I built boots but I was unable to run my silly "hello world!" EABI test binary ... so something is not quite right (but this might be because the eabi binary wants eabi libraries I guess even the most simple binary will look for ld-linux).

Today, if I've the time, I'll try using Angstrom root filesystem chrooted (I still cannot boot from mmc/sd with 2.6.21.5) to see if the kernel I built works (but I my run into other gcc version build problems .... I'm using gcc4.2 eabi toolchain and have no idea what the Angstom toolchain uses).
Regards
David

Ok I got partial functionality with Angstrom chrooted (I could not start up GUI correctly but I got the X server starting).
So I'd call it at least a partial success ;-)

BTW my C760 has broken audio so I've no idea how my kernel is doing with sound !
Another thing that I may not have put in evidence: my kernel setuo is probabbly only good for Cxx0 devices since I've not yet used any Cxx00 specific patches.

tomorrow I'm gonna try it on my 860 to test audio behaviour. We'll speak about it in the morning

I'm running kernel 2.6.22 now. It seems to be rather stable. Just need to enable CONFIG_MMC_UNSAFE_RESUME (only becouse of root on sd)

Poky guys have 2.6.22 and Jpmatrix has tested it on some Z.
There is a blog about it ofer at tyrannozaurus.

I was looking at the way the use OE to build to figure out where they have patches and recepies ... apparently they do not keep it on the official OE site.
Well I haven't had the time to look carfully into it but they have svn here.
I guess that Hrw was telling us just this when he stated that 2.6.22 is poky.

What are you using to build 2.6.22 and what patches are you applying ?
When I used OE patches with some adjustments I also managed to get corruption of the root jffs2 filesystem along with other power problems (that's why I temporarely stopped experimenting with 2.6.22). I haven't made any more attempts since then.

This is a developement topic and hence any future comments should go into the new pdaxrom developement forum.
