Testing #240

Updated by Hammel almost 6 years ago

The texy display has arrived. He had forgotten to send it originally and, to make up for it, decided to send me a mounting case for free. I've mounted an RPi in the case with the display (see photo) but my initial boot doesn't seem to see the device. I only have fb0, which is the HDMI monitor.

The discussion on using the display can be found here:

"fbtft_device":https://github.com/notro/fbtft kernel Kernel drivers instructions. This appears to be built on the kernel source from which "PiBox pulls":git://github.com/raspberrypi/linux.git
* "https://github.com/notro/fbtft/wiki/Build-kernel-and-fbtft-drivers":https://github.com/notro/fbtft/wiki/Build-kernel-and-fbtft-drivers
* "fbtft_device driver info":https://github.com/notro/fbtft/wiki/fbtft_device

The driver appears to support this device (whish is a hy28a). So all that's needed, initially, is to get the driver into the kernel build.
