Probably a stupid error on my part, but I installed v1.03 Developer fresh, then used the upload.exe utility to upload this kernel to my empeg. The irhack stuff doesn't seem to work.

I remember when I used my own patch of 1.02 and the irhack kernel, when I cat'd the ircode file to /dev/ir, I got some output... with this, this is all I get.:

empeg:/sbin# cat /etc/empeg_ircodes > /dev/ir
empeg:/sbin#

and nothing happens (remote doesn't work). Actually neither of the remotes work.

Any ideas? (Are these consumer patches?)

the ir-patch now expects translation table catted to /proc/empeg_ir.
writing to /dev/ir is only used for fake ir-codes

Frank,

Ahh, ok that was the problem. Also, I'm not sure if its just me, but using that example init.ir_hack file, when it tries to mount /proc, it gives me an error saying "can't create /tmp/some file, read-only fs"..

To workaround, I had to mount -n /proc, then cat the ircodes to /proc/empeg_ir, then umount /proc (as if I left proc mounted, the player init would dump right to a shell prompt).

Later,

(O|||||O)

Here is one with the 1 drive hack, Voladj, the oevrlay for the clock, and irhack for Displayserver, Mark 2.

So, Drakino, when are you going to put up that "Kernel Repository" site you mentioned before? We'd really love to see it implemented. When 1.1 comes out, we'll need it even more. Please?

Hey, everyone, help me needle him about it.

About 5 seconds ago

The empeg logo site now is home to my kernels compiled in this thread. One day, I'll get around to getting a similar uploader system in place for custom kernels. (Before or after 1.1 is beyond me, since it depends on how quickly Tony does his job on beta testing, and how slow my nights are at work )

Displayserver isn't in the Kernel.

Displayserver is a separate program that you must install to the Empeg's hard disk, more or less "by hand".

The "displayserver" kernel hack, also known as "irhack", happens to contain a section that allows one of the features of displayserver to work. But it's not displayserver.

You need to get Displayserver from Frank Van Gestel and install it. I'm not going to be able to give you step-by-step instructions for installing Displayserver, but you might be able to glean some hints from this file:

http://www.jps.net/tfabris/empeg/Picker_and_Voladj_for_Dummies.zip

Good luck.

I know that this is way more work than you probably want to do for kernel hacks, but it would be WAY cool if you had a website where we could select which base kernel, and what hacks we want, then your machine would compile the hacked kernel together and provide a file for download.

I would assume that users would have to create accounts for themselves, so that haxors don't just bombard your machine with compile requests.

Thanks for providing these compiled hacks, BTW!

I've thought of that, but it's probably more work than you could imagine. The various hacks aren't necessarily "plug and play", and might require some hand code-tweaking to integrate properly.

Besides, you'd have to wait for the compile to get done before you could download the file. All things considered, it's easier for someone to simply post the most popular configurations pre-compiled.

I was actually thinking of doing this a while back. If I ever get a huge chunk of free time, I might consider trying this. Overall, it would be possible as long as the patches submitted did work properly. I figure I would have a database holding what particular kernels had been compiled already to avoid duplicate work. Drive space is the biggest concern though, as there would need to be room to expand the kernel and such. The site that hosts the logo page only has 400 megs free, and others do use that machine.

But with the few amount of kernel mods out there, I figure using the server here is easy enough for now. I am going to sit down and compile a few more, and probably run through and generate Mark 1 images as well.

I currently have:
The Voladj code
Overlay code for the clock
1 drive code
IRhack code

What other kernel hacks are out there that people are interested in?

Hi Drakino.

Could you put a kernel (mk2 in my case) with the following hacks in up on your page?
Display overlay for Kit's clock, the irhack for Displayserver and custom remotes, and the single drive boot speed enhancement
I really don't want to use voladj, and AFAIK voladj is active by default, right?

Yes, voladj is active by default. I'll compile a one drive kernel with the irhack and overlay for you tomorrow.

1 Drive Code ? What is this patch for ? Never read about this
before ?

It eliminates some waiting around trying to detect an eventual second hard drive - ie makes it boot faster.
Should of course only be used if you only have one hard drive!

Hi.

I don't know the post were this was first mentioned, but the single drive patch just makes the kernel skip checking for a second harddisc. This saves some seconds on bootup if you only have one disc.

try this link for the original post (just did a search for it).

I have the non voladk 1 drive kernels up now, and also something that should help people out. I have a bzipped 1.03 kernel down at the bottom, so no more needing to patch so many times when working with the kernel.

I have a bzipped 1.03 kernel down at the bottom, so no more needing to patch so many times when working with the kernel.

Some filesystem corruption seems to have crept into this archive resulting in a 73 meg COPYING file... In any case, the original kernel tarball that Empeg published had some leftovers from a i386 compilation run which inflated it unnecessarily. I did some cleaning up, the fully patched 1.03 version is 13 megs. I've put it up on sourceforge, feel free to copy it or link to it.

Argh, their webserver seems to claim it's text/plain, so take care when downloading from Windows systems.

Regards,
Borislav

Hmm, was that 73 meg file only in mine, or the one from empeg origionally? Hmm, checking empeg.com, and the origional being 19 megs GZipped, I guess something strange happened with it. I'll go ahead and copy that one from sourceforge in place of mine later today. I specificially set the bz2 mime type up on the logo server to avoid it being treated as text/plain

Hi Borislav.

I just can't get that file from bkernel.sf.net Could you mail it to me? Or upload it to an ftp site if I give you the right login? I would than provide that file on my homepage (www.incase.de, new version almost finished, will be uploaded by the beginning of next week) and post a link here.

I now also mirror that archive under http://www.incase.de/empeg/empegkernel1.03.tar.bz2. Check http://www.incase.de/empeg/ if you get error 404 (which might happen when I update my site next week). you will surely find an appropriate link there.

I've now set the mime type correctly too, I had to find out how I can do that on a per directory basis with apache (which is what Sourceforge runs). Thanks to everybody who mirrored the file.
