Cacko Kernel For Sl-5500/5000d

I am using Sharp ROM 3.13 with Cacko Kernel 32-30.

Battery flashing (blinking)... I found software (ZLed - aka Zaurus Led Signilizer) and disabled Battery blinking in it... It helps!!!

Memory (Installd memory applet gives 8Mb Swap from RAM, wich more faster than my SD)

Questions:
Should I install mmcsd.0 driver insted of Sharp_mmcsd.0? How can i do it? Only replace and rename?
Should I enable assync mode for SD? (how?)

Can anyone fixed bug with memory in Cacko Advanced ROM/Crow Rom, when Installing Cacko Kernel 64-0, system memory 48Mb insted of 64?
[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=85982\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]

simply replace and rename for the mmcsd.o and you will be fine.

I had bad luck with async mode not liking to suspend but you can try it.

as for the memory bug My system status shows 62516k total memory (which I think is pretty darn close to 64MB)

The kernel+filesystem that I have is detailed a little earlier in this thread.

I'm pretty sure it's the kernel as well partly due to th eabove commants but mostly due to the fact that the 64/0 image wipes the contents of /var on reboot incidently causing the new battery applet to 'uninstall' leaving you with the original applet ans a blinking light.

Dougee I'm still poking away at this so hopefully I can find a workaround or solution.

Are you one of the folks whose z won't even charge because of the blinking light or are you in the 'inconvenience' club?

I guess I'm in the 'inconvenience' club, because sometimes it charges and sometimes it blinks.

You keep mentioning the 64/0 image, but I am using 32/30

Yes I know

All I was pointing out is that by accident the new battery applet got kicked on my Z and I was back to the original. so if it were the fault of the applet the behavior would have changed.

4 day weekend coming up. I'll backup my Z and flash 32-30 and see if I can get the blinking light again.

Right on the battery applet. I have tried it with and without the new one. It was the same either way.

Have a good one

I have never had a problem with the new battery applet getting uninstalled.
My only problem is with the blinking battery light.

I have running tKc rom with the Cacko kernel update, for about a week now and I have the blinking battery light issue, but it is very sporatic. Sometimes it goes for day without happening and once it does, I just disconnect the power and reconnect it, sometimes once does it, sometimes it take two or three times. Sometimes it needs to be suspended, sometimes not. Not anywhere near a deal breaker. Not ever that much of a annoyance. The speed is much better and I can open more progs at a time without crashing. I often have Beiks English Dictionary Pro, QPsword, Opera and Opie Reader open at once and maybe check the Calendar (KOPI) in the midst of it all. Qpdf2 is a little slow to open (I tried to  install " t1lib_5.0.2-r0_arm.ipk  to do the fix that someone posted elsewhere, but the file doesn't work. Maybe it's not for sl5500???), but everything else opens and moves faster. I had originally tried it with 64-0 Cacko rom, but i did something wrong. I kind of want to try it again, but this is working so nicely, I hate to mess with it (at least for a while). Thanks Maslovsky.

I can't get the zaurususergroup.org download to work.  It keeps telling me "No input file specified."  Does anyone have a mirror up?  Or could somebody email me the 5000D kernel?  fiferboy at gmail dot com

Thanks!

Unfortunately, the links from the page go to the zaurususergroup.org downloads page, which still doesn't work!  Thanks for the assistance, though.

Unfortunately most sites either point back to the broken links or are down as well...

Ive just put the sl5000d_cacko_beta-2.4.18 on my zaurus. It all went fine but my wireless linksys doesnt work. When I plug it in the light blinks for a while but then goes out. The network dialog shows no signal being detected. Any suggestions?

Thanks Martin West

PS Is there a way to get USB/TCPIP networking up?
