Thanks to work done by Dmitry Baryshkov we have 2.6.23 kernel working properly on Zaurus SL-6000 (Tosa). Ångström images are already present so users can test how does it works for them.

Today I reflashed Tosa with fresh build and did some testing. We still have problem with framebuffer (famous yellow lines) but otherwise it looks quite good. USB host is working very nice — I connected few devices:

root@tosa:~$ lsusb
Bus 1 Device 9: ID 1457:5122
Bus 1 Device 8: ID 046d:c70a Logitech, Inc.
Bus 1 Device 7: ID 046d:c70e Logitech, Inc.
Bus 1 Device 6: ID 046d:0b02 Logitech, Inc.
Bus 1 Device 5: ID 0a46:9601 Davicom Semiconductor, Inc.
Bus 1 Device 4: ID 05e3:0606 Genesys Logic, Inc.
Bus 1 Device 2: ID 0bb2:0302 Ambit Microsystems Corp.
Bus 1 Device 1: ID 0000:0000

Detailed checking as to wait until I charge this device to 100% because now it shutdown after few minutes.

    I observed much less “famous yellow lines”in the 2.6.23 kernel than the previous 2.6.17 kernel.

    I am unable to resume after pressing the power button. I get interrupt errors. Seems to work just fine up until I turn it off and try to turn it back on.

    Hi, Great to hear you have 2.6.23 working on the Zaurus.

    I did a little googling and could pinpoint answers to the following: Personally, am interested in obtaining the source patches of the kernel; I intend to attempt some porting. Where can I obtain the (working) kernel source for the Tosa?

    Also, a pointer to any HOWTO’s on howto get a shell to the Zaurus from my Linux box pl..

    Any help would be appreciated, Thx! -kaiwan.

    Oops! I meant “could not pinpoint answers…” sorry!

    @Kaiwan: I do not remember now where to get current Tosa support. Please check LAKML archives for Dmitry’s posts on that.
