Yes, I am currently on Ubuntu.
So steps in Ubuntu would be good.
Also please update how to add the SPIDEV
I did again your instructions and when connecting it to a standard screen (the one that I have in the office) I do get 800x480 resolution, but when connecting to the 5" LCD I only get white screen.
could it be related to the refresh rate?
How to I set it as well?
this is the LCD;
After changing the hdmi_cts_compatibility = 1 (from 0 to 1) the HDMI screen start to work,
hdmi_used = 1
hdmi_power = "vcc-hdmi-33"
hdmi_hdcp_enable = 0
hdmi_cts_compatibility = 1
The boot logo wasnt centered so I guess it didnt accept the 800x480 resolution… and when continue booting to the kernel the boot logo was replaced with white screen again.
What is causing this? why cant 5" 800x480 LCD be configured on the BananaPI image?
Why in Armbian it works with this argument under armbianEnv.txt:
extraargs=fbcon=rotate:2 drm_kms_helper.edid_firmware=HDMI-A-1:edid/800x480.bin video=HDMI-A-1:800x480-24@60
and with BananaPI it doesnt?
Can anyone have an answer? anyone that had build this kernel??
Added 3 pictures:
- BPI_M64 with Kernel 4.4.89 that show the U-boot image - ( the image is shaped to 800x480) and it is not centered even though the resolution is set to 800x480…
- the second one is after the U-boot , when the Kernel start loading the screen goes white.
- Armbian image with Kernel 4.19.53-sunxi64 that there it works perfectly, the main issue that I have with Armbain that it doesnt detect AC/battery power…
