What's With The Sound Quality?

Your links are okay.
For updating the kernel you just need zImage and updater.sh.
Modules are optional. There are some drivers included in the module archive which are not included in pdaXrom or pdaXii13.
The kernel config is just there to make things more transparent in case you want to recompile the kernel yourself from either the sources I provided or my current SVN.

OK, tnx.  I've reflashed & can confirm that it works great under pdaxii13.  It's so nice having the bas/treble & 3d surround option - and it makes a massive difference - many thanks again for all your time spent on this!

I'm looking forward to seeing an updated pdaXii13 with the new mixer kernel code and tools included! Big thanks MeanieJazz!

Funny to see such fundamental features of the cxxxx sound driver being implemented by an unpaid user/developer 3 years after the c3000 release! I wonder what other new hardware functionality is yet to be added to the archaic crappix kernel?

Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad it works for you, zedkatuf2.

So the stuff is working on one C3200 and one C1000 running Cacko and two C3200's running pdaXrom. I'm interested in the other models (C3000, C3100) especially. Anybody keen enough to try the kernel and mixer app on one of these models?

danboid, thanks for the comment. Actually the only reason I implemented the stuff is broken hardware. I really only wanted the internal speaker to work again. My Zaurus' headphone jack is broken and won't switch back to the internal speaker when the headphone plug is pulled out. That problem is fixed via software. The treble/bass and 3D sound stuff is just a by-product of that hack.
Sure, I could simply get the hardware repaired. However, that would mean sending the machine in for repair and that can easily take weeks. I don't have a second Zaurus, so there it goes.
As for the "the archaic crappix kernel": Sure, it's old, but it still gets the job done...

Alright, back to porting my Quasar Media Player to pdaXrom...

Dear evil_jazz,

I tried it on my C3000 with pdaxii13 and it worked beautifully with your
mixer.

Thanks for all the hard work.

BR,

Felix.

it's not a crap kernel. it's old and stable. by calling it crappix you basically are saying that linux has always been crap until the 2.6.x kernel has matured and 2.8 is out and then the wheel repeats itself...

Installed on my C3000 with pdaxii13 5.4.7 -kernel and mixer both work fine. Uptime 2.8 days and counting......

Great work and thanks a lot.

Confirmed working well on my c3100, thanks!

Incidentally (after a conversation I had with Meanie this evening), if you are running the new kernel on c1000 could you please tell me if the /proc/driver/battery/sharpsl_main_battery_voltage file is present on your system? PMs are fine so as not to clutter this thread.

Is there any reason this new kernel and mixer app cannot be installed directly on pdaXrom beta1(currently running 2.4.18)?  
I have a c-750 and am having trouble running Meanie's pdaxii update script.

Don't try this - the kernel is not for the c7xx zaurii, as they do not have the sound chip.

Would it be possible/reasonable then to make these changes and build a kernel for the PXA255 with the wm8731 chip?  Or would the chip be unable to support it?

Thanks for the feedback everybody! Really appreciated!

Gorth, sorry to disappoint you, the WM8731 chip doesn't feature any equalizer functions. At least that is what I can tell from the data sheets and the register map.

works on my C3000 as well running pdaXii13 latest

as a bonus,  /proc/driver/battery/sharpsl_main_battery_voltage now exists wheras it did not exist on the original 3000 kernel for pdaXii13.
