tumnus, I\'d be curious to know your thoughts on the similarity between the two followinf results. It was my impression that the pre-empt kernel should be quicker than the standard sharp one.

On a PXA255 SL5600
This result from original Sharp 1.32 kernel

Dhrystone Benchmark, Version 2.1 (Language: C)
Register option not selected.
Microseconds for one loop:     2.8
Dhrystones per second:   351741.1
VAX MIPS rating:    200.194

This result from Standard pre-emptive kernel 1.2

Register option not selected.

remarkably similar, no?

For one, you should be using v1.3 of the Special Kernel now. All others have been superceded by this. Secondly it looks like the kernel wasn\'t updated to me. I have seen someone else post benchmarks with a PXA255 using v1.3 of the Special kernel and they got higher results.

You\'re not going to get much better results anyway, since the PXA255 doesn\'t have the same bugs that the PXA250 has at least with regards to the cache.

tumnus, according to the thread below, enabling async option in kernel source improves
the speed and stability for CF/SD cards. Do you know if your special kernel has the same
feature? Thanks.

I just got my Zaurus 5600 from Amazon today and the box says 250. So it looks like I am screwed. Any suggestions/insight? Are there patches to do, or should I just send it back to Amazon and try and get at 5500?

ANybody try lately?

guh: see FAQ (you need to install the terminal package).

Note: What could be very interesting if we wanted to have better performance on Sharp PDA would be to replace the old pthead library by the new posix compliant GNU library (NTRL or something like that) and recompile the wall application set to see how it goes.

A bit late, but...

SL-5600 ordered from Amazon on 20040403, received 20040407. Box indicates PXA255, and \'cat /proc/cpuinfo\' yields \"Intel XScale-PXA255 rev 6 (v5l)\".

That\'s good news.  I just placed my order tonight.  Here\'s hoping.
