C2 3.5 touchscreen on kernel 5.6.18 (armbian)

Post by dementate »

Hi,

I recently bought a 3.5 touchscreen for one of my C2's
It runs Armbian focal running kernel 5.6.18

According to https://github.com/notro/fbtft/wiki the modules needed to support the screen were removed in 5.4

Is there any way to build them myself?
I've tried searching the forums and Google but couldn't find a clue

Thanks!

This was a patch set for ODROID-C2 Kernel 3.16 to enable the 3.5inch LCD Shield.

If the GPIO scheme in the upstream kernel was changed too much, that patch might not work though.
