Requesting option during kernel compilation

Post by halocaridina » Fri May 15, 2020 11:50 pm

Currently running:

Code: Select all

Linux odroid-c4 4.9.218-13 #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Apr 21 20:02:01 UTC 2020 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux
Next time the kernel package is built for Ubuntu 20.02, could the following option please be set to y(es):

Code: Select all

root@odroid-c4 [09:10:50 AM] [/proc]
-> # zgrep CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE_ROTATION config.gz
# CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE_ROTATION is not set
Reason for this request is that I want to try like described here:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/237963/ ... n-x-server

rotating by 180 degrees the console display on the 3.2 in TFT panel connected to the C4.

Thank you in advance!

Thank you for the confirmation. :D

Is the FB rotation function working well with the 3.2" TFT LCD on your C4 board?

Thank you for checking and yes, it works perfectly. The main reason for wanting this is by rotating by 180 degrees the console display on the 3.2 in TFT panel connected to the C4 positions the power cord to the back of the unit. Minor detail but looks better sitting on one's router serving as a Pi-hole + VPN client.

Cheers and thanks again!

Out of curiosity, can you let me know which 3.2 TFT panel use and what you have changed to make it work on ODROID-C4?

@halocaridina: Yes, please give us more details about your setup. A photo of the unit with TFT would also be nice.
