Got LXDE worked.
« on: March 01, 2020, 08:08:38 am »
The kernel is 5.4.23, the roots is the latest Arch Linux arm rootfs, it has a 512M swapfile(seems too big).
The pacman works well, I had done a full system update, and installed many packages.
I added IgnorePkg = linux in /etc/pacman.conf to avoid kernel updating.

The attempt to compile kexecboot failed, I still use Kexecboot 3.10 ALARMZ provided by greguu, the Kexecboot 4.14.18 Voidz doesn't work on my Zaurus, I don't know why.

Impressive. How's the overall speed? Were all the dependencies available, or did you need to crosscompile one or more packages? Did you try any program with a GUI?

All the dependencies are installed by pacman, the X is very slow so it's just for fun.

Good stuff cain2pang,

 I had no time to continue on the kernel since 5.0
Did you need to patch the 5.4.23 kernel other than using the patches from the 5.0.0 release of the voidz kernel (https://github.com/greguu/voidz-packages/tree/voidz-packages-v03-(build8)/srcpkgs/linux5.0-zaurus) ?
If yes, please let us know what needed patching.
Thanks,

I just used the patches from the 5.0.0 releases of voidz kernel, it seems work well with kernel 5.4.23.

Ok, great to know. WiFi, SD, Audio working ?
What kexecboot version are you using by the way ?

Yes, they are all working well.
I build kexecboot with the same version kernel 5.4.23 by removing lots of things.

It would be great to have both the new kernel and kexecboot available, I'd like to give them a try to see if they work on my C1000
