i know we aren't supposed to ask these questions, but how is it looking for modem drivers? It would be kinda fun to use something like this as a daily. We could have unlimited UI possibilities.

you might also want to change the OP to reflect that the git hub command should read:

git clone git://github.com/aloznat/samsung-kernel-victory.git

not

git clone git://github.com/aloznat/samsung_kernel_victory.git
(note the dashes NOT underlines...)

Is there a precompiled kernel available?

EDIT: Nevermind for some victory_defconfig was missing. I compiled it and here's a link:

Default kernel.zip for kexec boot

I had to pull info from multiple sources as information on this project is scarce, but I put together a kernel to boot ubuntu from CWM. So here you go the file is epic4g-kexec-ubuntu-kernel.zip, and to boot from CWM5 you just do an update, and select this zip file.

http://www.2shared.com/file/vsGHqp7Z...tu-kernel.html

I think this project (more of a vague tutorial) has alot of potential, most things work pretty well it just took alot of time to get configuration and packages correct. I'll probably put out my ubuntu build for the epic 4g if anyone is interested. I'm currently playing around with video acceleration for the PowerVR SGX 540 working with xorg, and also trying to get wimax.

I for one would love to see what you've come up with!

Let me know if you need a place to host files :)

That would be great actually, I need a place to host. By the way I found a huge oversight in the kernel which most definitely prevents wifi from working. Fixing that now.

Things I've found wrong:
- wifi is being compiled as a module, so I changed to built-in at least for now
- wifi firmware path expect /system root, which it shouldn't
- a bunch of missing drivers for the epic 4g which could fix things which currently do not work such as audio and hardware acceleration
- orientation of X is portrait when it should be landscape
- quite a few audio drivers are being compiled in which I'm sure is messing up the audio support
- keyboard function keys aren't working, but I think theres a fix for this (custom keymap needed)
- usb networking support wasn't built in which is useful when wifi isn't working
