Tosa and 2.6 kernel

Few days ago I flashed 2.6.17 on tosa (with unofficial OpenZaurus 3.5.4.1 OPIE image) and I have to say that it was good choice. After fixing keymap (pushed into OpenEmbedded) and adding one script into apm (not yet pushed) I have machine which suspend/resume very fast, has working WiFi after each resume and behave better then it was with 2.4 (see my previous post).

But it is not yet ready for end users:

  • sometimes battery info report 0% — suspend/resume help
  • USB Host module lack Power Managment — need to be removed/inserted on suspend/resume
  • touchscreen is weird — horizontal lines got ‘pings’

Tomorrow I will get USB keyboard from friend so will test how it is — usage of external (wired) keyboard with PDA…
