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.
- 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!
