    :welcome: to the forums!

    Yes and what kind of trouble? Maybe we can help you out. The Droid 1 only runs in Ad-Hoc mode during tethering so some devices will have difficulty or find it outright impossible to connect to a tethered Droid.

    The Eris may require an infrastructure mode, or it may simply not be picking up the SSID from your Droid. I honestly don't know how to fix that. If you take it over to the Rescue Squad forum you may have better luck getting a fix and we can get this topic back on track. :)

    compcache

    Just wondering, I know your current batch of kernals does not support "compcache". Any plans to change that?

    UD's newest ROM now has an option to enable it, but says the kernal does not support it.

    Was hoping that the latest ChevyNo1 kernals would enable that, but no :frown:

    I know Chevy's kernels don't support compcache, but I'm wondering if anybody who's running SS 4.8 has tried using slayhers kernels with whatever it is that's included with Pete's ROM that does something to make it work in bb 0.5? Can't remember what it is exactly that Pete's mod changes to make it work, I just want to try out compcache without wiping everything and switching roms.

    I'm struggling trying to get a cifs mount working with SS 4.8 mod.

    Do these kernels support it? Where can I find a working cifs.ko module?

    It didn't allow my cifsmanager app to load the cifs.ko module when I pointed it there, is there another way to load it?

    I honestly couldn't tell you. Maybe someone else has an idea?

    I got compcache to work using slayher's kernel and pete's fix to be able to use it. I gotta say that it runs pretty nicely at first, and makes the multitasking a lot better as the browser doesn't have to refresh if you leave to do a text, and I noticed Angry Birds wouldn't start over either if left to go do something else on the phone. But after you start opening a lot of different apps the phone will eventually slow down to a crawl and I even had it reboot on me. So I'm not so sure compcache is worth it, unless your willing to reboot your phone daily and you have to reenable it everytime you do reboot.

    I got it to work using slayhers kernel and Pete's fix as well. I'm not impressed with compcache at all. I mean it ran real nice and quick at first, but once the swapfree memory would get real low, the phone would become extremely laggy and unresponsive. Looking in the info section of SetCPU for those stats. I'm still running the 900 1.6 kernel still though.
    For some reason it seems to run just a tad better then Chevy's kernel. It seems to run better memory wise, which I think is the reason. In running services my phone gets really slow when its around 20 MB, but using this kernel keeps it around 40+ MB free. I don't even think that kernels have anything to do with the memory management, but it's just what seems to happen on my phone

    Hey chevy can you make an ULV kernel that will work with the new CM 6.1?

    I would also like a solution to this. I have tried two different cifs.ko modules and neither one will load. I may try other kernels, but chevy's run so well on my phone I'd rather not if I don't have to.

    I just tried it with the 11/5 kernels and it still doesn't work. It does work with P3Droid's kernels, but my battery only lasts a few hours with his.

    Are you using the LV or SV kernels?

    In all cases I use the 1GHz LV kernel.

    Try the SV kernel, run it for an hour, let your phone cool down, run the LV kernel for an hour, and see if your phone runs cooler on the SV kernel -- it's counter-intuitive, but some phones have ECC kick in while on the LV kernel and that slows down and heats their phone up VERY quickly. That results in much shorter battery life.
