Update: C1000 / Akita support
« Reply #30 on: June 17, 2019, 03:07:51 am »
I updated the previous post in the meantime and added the kernel for testing.

I use the xbps-src tool from void linux nowadays to build the kernel. All required is on my github.

Voidz is more lightweight, uses less memory. Downside is packages are not prebuild as with ALARM.

hi
I have been using my C1K since 2008 with 2.6.23. I have recently acquired a secondhand C3200, and I'd like to know about kernel differences between these to models, if any.

Any special patch from C1K to C3K?

What is the status of modern (>2.6.23) kernels?

I remember I didn't update to 2.6.24/2.6.26 because they had problems with suspend, and problem with the battery recharge circuit

Have these bugs/issues been already fixed in the meanwhile?

Thanks  :D

Hello and welcome back,

about the differences,  as mentioned the only one between spitz and akita in kernel is that akita needs this:
 CONFIG_GPIO_PCA953X=y
which iirc selects as well
 CONFIG_GPIO_PCA953X_IRQ=y

Apart this the kernels are identical.

Now, about power management...bad notes.
So refined as with 2.x is still a dream :/

At lest som e4.x kexecboot can 'suspend' from within kexecboot (in menu is shutdown).

cheers
