Testing #240

Updated by Hammel over 9 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

 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.
