What's With The Sound Quality?

There is no way it can be done by making modules rther than doing a whole new kernel?

I can provide compiled kernels for Cacko and Sharp ROM only.

...
My current kernel merges the latest Tetsu with the latest Cacko patches and adds some additional features. So perhaps this would be useable with pdaXii13 too? I'll let you know once I have it set up.

As a C3200 Cacko user, I would appreciate greatly if you can release your current compiled kernel.

Thanks for the feedback!
Chances are low for the module solution but I'll look into it again tonight.
As for the compiled kernel, I'll prepare the kernels tonight and make them available here. Alright, back to work...

Okay, I've uploaded the kernels to my server.
They are here along with all other notes and information:
http://www.katastrophos.net/zaurus/kernels/v44/

The kernels for C3200 all work okay on my device with Cacko 1.23. See my other post below for pdaXrom...
I can't test for C1000, C3000 and C3100. However, I'm confident they work fine since the configuration is the same as with the Cacko- and Stock-Kernels and the whole build process is automated - so no screwing up on my part.

I simply don't know. I've only tested with Cacko 1.23.
If anybody is brave, go ahead and post your findings!
Make sure you have a backup zImage of the original pdaXrom / pdaXii13 kernel lying around in case something goes wrong.
Meanie has tried the Tetsu kernel with pdaXrom and from what I read it worked. See my post #14.

Well, I just tried the new kernel + wm8750mixer on my C1000 und it works without a problem. Thanks for your work! I already thougt the Zaurus had a really good audio quality untill now, but with the possibilities given thanks to your work it is really great! Thanks again!!

...Am I correct in thinking that the actual compiled mixer application only works in an opie/QT-type environment, or does cacko use X11 like pdaxii13 (I'm using pdaxii13)?

[Sorry for being ignorant - I guess I should know the answer to my question!!]

cacko doesn't use X11. cacko is based on qtopia.

OK, so this means that the actual mixer application won't work on pdaxii13 I guess

Here are my lousy FPE benchmarks:
http://www.katastrophos.net/zaurus/kernels.../FPE-Benchmark/

The new FastFPE code is a lot better than the old code that comes included with the stock kernel sources. It's the default FPE for Tetsu's kernel now. The Cacko kernels comes with NWFPE enabled.
My subjective feeling is that FastFPE accelerates Opera A LOT.

As for the mixer application, it's plain Qt 2. I bet Qt 2 / 3 is included in pdaXrom. It should be fairly easy to compile once you have the dev environment set up.
I can't sacrifice my Zaurus right now and install pdaXrom since I need a working setup tomorrow. Perhaps at the weekend, can't promise...

OK, I might try & compile the app....also thinking of 'risking' installation of the fastFPE-uncachedfb kernel

....pdaxii13 complains about not being able to find ide_cs kernel module on bootup & then X11 freezes, so I've reflashed back to the 5.4.7 kernel for now; maybe someone who has more time  can look into this - perhaps, for example, I should've used fastFPE-cachedfb


...haven't got the time to fiddle more for now, but am def interested to see if this the mixer can be gotten to work under pdaxii13, as it looks like a fantastic improvement.

wouldn' the thing to do be to patch the existing pdax kernel and then build as usual (not that I7ve done any such thing in pdaX, but itt seems more logical)
