Timo, Stefan:

I have the sound working and It's Great... really sounds good!. Many thanks!

I already had the latest kernel, so was just a matter of following Timo's CLI commands. I will upload / host image soon.

Nice!

FYI

New disk image contains (snd-jornada720)sound driver and MOC player (type mocp to start) and "sudo for user" set up and Zram (fraction 50%) and "xdotool click 3" (for right mouse click) included!. With special Thanks to Timob0 and Stefan

Please see Timo's directions to load sound driver, etc,above. No buttons script set up yet...

Note: file size now 608Mb... runs but may run slow on 32Mb J720, much better on 64Mb rom or 128Mb. Change params.txt on Fat32 partition to appropriate size for your device.

Find it here: https://www.sugarsync.com/pf/D4898663_09915533_810651

Previous disk images found here: https://app.sugarsync.com/iris/wf/D4898663_09915533_66697

Now...Playing music mp3 via MOC player and simutaneously surfing internet via ssh/RasPi Zero ( run mocp after loading "sudo modprobe snd-jornada720" Timo's driver)

FYI I keep the Mp3 music files stored on the Fat32 partition so can be played in WinCE mode too, then create a Linux CLI mount point with "sudo mount /dev/hda1 /cf" so they can be played in Devuan mode. from /cf directory. Best of both worlds and why I made the Fat32 partition so large! (Similarly, can save webpages in Devuan/Linux and using included Rsync can save to Fat32 partition and view in WinCE mode with A1Reader2)

Some stutter with high cpu use at times, but works remarkably well!

I'm impressed...

run mocp after loading "sudo modprobe snd-jornada720"


you can make the driver load permanent by adding it to /etc/modules:
 
snd-jornada720 

So you don‘t need to do the modprobe excercise each time

Cheers

Great idea Timo but where is the location of snd-jornada720 and how do I add it to /etc/modules file? You Wiz Kids are way ahead of me!

BTW, with the hosted disk image above, even with stock J720 with 32Mb memory limit...and Zram @50%... it's slow loading up MOC and also running ssh Firefox (runs from/located on RasPi), but after that you can actually listen to Jornada play music and surf the web in a fairly snappy manner! Surprises me...

Thanks in advance... Joval

I just noticed the added "bx_patch=1" line in the newest PARAMS.TXT file on the Fat32 partition and will add it to the disk images that I am hosting. Wow... it sure boots up and runs faster! Thanks again!

BTW, actually running Zram fraction at 90%, seems less stutter with MOC music and firefox together... still experimenting now that bx patch is autostarted... whole new world to explore.

I am pleased because the J720 32Mb now acts more like the J720 64Mb in performance!

Joval, it‘s really straightforward: sudo nano /etc/modules

Then just put the module name on a new line to have it automatically loaded on boot.

Season's Greetings Timo!

Congratulations on your much deserved Honorary Gold Membership!

And thank you again for your outstanding accomplishments and efforts in giving "new life and value" to the Jornada 720.

As we seen with last years Gold Membership Honoree ...Stefan, further good works are very likely to follow. (Thanks Stefan)!

We are so fortunate to have you (both) here on the HPC:Factor "team" continually blazing new trails...

And, yes, I have a few more ideas for your great-working "Jornada-config"... but will wait for next year.

best regards,

joval
...on his J720/Devuan/RasPi hybrid
