PiTFT kernel compilation guide @Raspberry_Pi #RaspberryPi

Hi guys,

I love all of the tutorials you are doing, and I love the PiTFT screens that I have bought. [Here’s a] tutorial on how to get and compile a kernel with support for the fbtft device it uses.

See attached for a .md and its .pdf version of a full tutorial on installing, patching and compiling the kernel and modules.

Some comments:

  • It was built on a MAC, but the process for building on a linux device is shown as well, but only 98% tested.
  • I tried to use your sources on github, but ran into problems with the raps B+
  • We rely on the cp210x driver for our work, so it is being patched in the source tree and enabled as a module

Feel free to use this any way you see fit.

I hope this helps, and good luck!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
