I just got me a BPI-M64 and was wondering if anyone know of a small (e.g. 320x240 / 480x320) RGB LCD that is preferable either working via a flexible flat cable connected to the MIPI DSI connector or via SPI? Or does someone know which driver/chip for such a screen is known to be working or available somewhere?
I know of the Winstar LCD 320x240, however that comes in form of a HAT which limits the possibility to put the screen on a different place. I also read about the 7" HDMI touch screen which is however way to big for my use case and I do not need necessarily a touch screen, not to mention that I would like to keep the HDMI free.
Further I don’t mind the OS even though I prefer Debian, Ubuntu or Raspbian, nor am I afraid of a bit of kernel hacking
On the protocol level: armbian-config -> system -> hardware [ enable SPI I2C … or whatever you need ]. From there, you are on your own … you can find many use cases on forum.
Strange. Its working fine for me … but I agree there are still some troubles with A64 and modern kernel which is the only one with armbian and simple manipulation via armbian-config. This will not work with stock kernel. Here you don’t have this kind of luxury.
