Odroid C1+ 3.2inch TFT+Touchscreen Shield on Arch Linux ARM

Postby milos » Tue Mar 08, 2016 2:08 pm

Hello. First time posting, and it's a question.

I am contemplating buying this display for my Odroid C1+.

C1 3.2inch TFT+Touchscreen Shield
http://www.hardkernel.com/main/products/prdt_info.php?g_code=G142060963922

The question is whether it can be made to work under Arch Linux ARM. The product site very clearly states that "You will need an official Ubuntu image to configure it", but there's just no way I'm going to run Ubuntu, so I'd like to get it to work under Arch instead.

Instructions on their wiki (link at the bottom) say that you need a newer kernel and the modules spicc and fbtft_device. Are these available on ALARM as well? The rest of it seems just like generic X stuff.

It's a cool little display, it would be awesome if it just worked™.

Ubuntu instructions can be found here http://odroid.com/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=en:c1_lcdshield.

Any information / help is very much appreciated, thank you!

Best regards, Miloš

Most, if not all of this is indeed available in ALARM.

I have the XU4 cloudshell, and adding a few configuration files made everything work for that.

I've had issues getting the ads7846 driver to work on ArchLinux. Everything seems to load but the ads7846 never creates an event.

If I try to follow these instructions from Odroid: http://odroid.com/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=en:c1_tft_touch but

Code: Select all
modprobe ads7846

does not load and has no logging information in dmesg. Does anyone know what my issue could be?
