    I'm trying to run the app Wireless Tether. I don't know if the problem lies within CM7, Android 2.3.x, the kernels, or the app itself. I've been through so many ROMs and kernels in the last month that I'm absolutely confused with what worked when and under what circumstances.

    I get an error from the app, after it is granted su, it pops up with "unable to start tethering, is your device rooted?" and I've removed it from superuser and it requested to be added again, so the rooting problem isn't the case.

    EDIT: it doesn't work on a clean CM7 install, either. I'm about to give your ROM a whirl and see what happens.

    Hey Chevy, I'm wondering if there is anything different about this kernel than all of the others on the list. This is the only kernel I have been able to load :frown: Maybe that one was just good luck but I must know!

    Thanks in advance!

    Are you on an LGB ROM? If so - that is why it is the only kernel that will work for you ...

    Sounds like it - can you try another kernel, say from Slayher? It HAS to be a kernel that is in the 'anykernel' format (something Koush came up with). In other words - if you look at the zipfile, it will have a 'kernel' directory in it. If Pe5 has the same issue - those kernels also should fail.

    Chevy... Very impressed with the kernels you've developed. Especially the most recent ones. I have been using your ULV kernels (currently using the ULV 1.2 ghz), and they seem to run cooler, and use less battery power than other over-clock kernels I have tried that are around the same speed. My compliments. :)

    The issue I am currently having is that, though the kernels say that they work with GB Compcashe, I having trouble getting that to work properly. I have been using your kernel with CM7, they though I configure the default Compcashe setting, when I run a terminal program, and type "free" (I was told this is the best way to find out what Compcashe is currently being use) I see that no "swap" is currently being used.

    Don't know if this is a bug, or if I'm just doing something wrong?

    @htartisan - Thanks! 90% of the support for compcache resides within the ROM itself - only 10% in the kernel - unfortunately because that is so - you will have to contact CM about why it is not working for you - I am not sure how it is implemented in his ROM. Or of course you could try my ROM ;) If you think you might do that - wait until my next release which I am feverishly trying to finish up now!
