How can I know the swap work correctly?  ???
I put the 100619_ILI9325_zImage and the 100619_9325_ILI9325.config to root.
rename they zImage and ILI9325.config
Is that right?

Just put zImage to your card
Do not need config file
If you want swap, you need swap file and script

oh.
i think i am wrong..
i test a mame game
SiE's kernel load the game use time 1.6 min ,but  Menelkir's Kernel  load it use 2.8 min..
so really SiE's kernel is faster one.

sorry about my wrong feeling..

To test if swap is working, just connect your dingoo via telnet and start top. It will show you how much swap is available.

you could get the duke 3d atomic edition(google will get you there :)) and select the birth episode. If it loads(it takes a little bit of time) and works then the swap is working. If it stops and hangs at 99% the swap is not working.

@ ruffnutts

You need a linuxbox and then just setup the usb ethernet interface by "ifconfig usb0 up 10.1.0.1" and telnet you dingoo via "telnet 10.1.0.2" then just type "top";)

@ qbert

This only works with music on, otherwise the birth just loads up well. Even without the swapping.

USB networking instructions on the wiki:
http://dingoowiki.com/index.php/Dingux:Tutorials:USB_Networking

Aside from top, you can also use free to see if swap is working:
Code: [Select]
/boot # free
              total         used         free       shared      buffers
  Mem:        62364        60872         1492            0          584
 Swap:            0            0            0
Total:        62364        60872         1492

That shows swap at 0 which means, no swap.

Code: [Select]
/boot # free
              total         used         free       shared      buffers
  Mem:        62364        60960         1404            0          776
 Swap:       131064            0       131064
Total:       193428        60960       132468

That shows swap is active.

Was thinking - I have a A330, once I fix the shoulder button - could the swap work with 64MB internal and 64MB swap
To give you 128, just a thought - or does it seem pointless unless you have a big demanding app/emu ect....

Thanks for all the reply's BTW  ;D

Swap would work, if the Kernel supported the 64MB of the A330, as far as I know, only Stephanie's Kernel does that at the moment. But I don't think, that you will find anything at Mame or FBA, that needs 128 MB. Maybe some of the bigger NeoGeo games need more than 64 MB in Mame, but I never tried the NeoGeo emulation in Mame4All, cause it would be much to slow to be playable. In fba, all NeoGeo Roms should work with 64 MB fine.

I've compiled a 64M version of SiENcE's kernel, that should give the a330 all the same goodies while also supporting the 64MB of ram.

I've tested swap, it works fine. I haven't tested tv-out but it should work.

You can download it here:
http://planetstephanie.net/uploads/zImage-64M-swap

Just rename it to zImage and drop it on your SD card.

@Stephanie: Did you applied the tvout patch of uli and used my config? If so all should work fine. Does the 64mb version also work on a320 with 32mb?

Yes, I followed your config and uli's patch - it should be pretty much the same as your kernel, but with the commandline modified to mem=64M

It won't work on a 32MB dingoo because it does expect 64MB of ram.

Ok. Can i add it also to my download site? Just to have one source where people can get it.

Is it possible to swap on automatically every time GMenu loads?
Could someone provide a sample script?
Thanks!

To get it to run on startup edit your main file in the /local/sbin directory mine looks like this

#!/bin/sh
export HOME=/usr/local/home
export SDL_NOMOUSE=1
export TZ=JST-3
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin
renice 20 `pidof mmcqd`
cd /usr/local/gmenu2x/scripts
./swapon.sh
cd /usr/local/gmenu2x
./gmenu2x

Cant test this yet - but thank you Stephanie, so the A330 128MB nice  ;D

Any chance we could have something in the menu that show`s the swap is active?

Nutts.... ;)
