As I mentioned in that post, only my test kernel 126.96.36.199 was supported. I realised that until full kernel support is available, people would probably like to build the old kernel to play with.
So here is a package that will provide 188.8.131.52 kernel support.
The setup package creates a configuration that will leverage OE's package version support to build the latest kernel, so in order to use this kernel you will need to navigate to your packages/linux folder and rename the linux-zipit2-184.108.40.206.bb file to something else e.g. linux-zipit2-220.127.116.11.bb_.
Once you have done that, extract the contents of the archive to the packages/linux folder and:
It is possible to specify a prefered kernel version in your local.conf file to override this behaviour but I do not have the exact syntax available. If anyone would like to comment and leave instructions on how to achieve this override, that would be great.
Have fun! Shortly I will be adding a package for cutting edge 2.6.29 support in the quest to achieve mainline acceptance.
Like a total fool I forgot to mention that you will need to add the checksums for the kernel into checksums.ini in your openembedded/conf/checksums.ini file, here is the text you need to add:
Another missing component. Sigh. In an effort to cleanup the original SVN files I nuked the packages/sysvinit/sysvinit/zipit2/rcS file. Unfortunately this is where the old (crappy) keyboard drivers are loaded. To sort this out you need to patch this file, look for:
#and add this text after it:
# For compatibility, run the files in /etc/rc.boot too.
[ -d /etc/rc.boot ] && run-parts /etc/rc.boot
# for now, the module loader is not working.Which should sort it all out.
