NH7C working solution for Debian 8.7

(1/1)

mhall:
Has anyone got this to work? I am getting a bit desparate finding a solution.
The display works well on the Debian 9.1 LXQT, nice display and touch works well. Also able to rotate both screen and touch to portrait mode.

The problem is that the GPIO ports are not "mapped" and the Adafruit_BBIO library can't be used. So reverted back to Debian 8.7 LXQT where the BBIO library works but now can't get the LCD to work.

Compiling the BB-BONE-NH7C-01-A0.dts gives an error, can't parse the tree. DTC version 1.4.1 .

We really like to use this screen in our product, but need to have a workable solution.

Any help is very much appreciated.

Update: dts was compiled using the instructions on the https://github.com/beagleboard/bb.org-overlays/blob/master/readme.md
sudo apt update ; sudo apt install bb-cape-overlays
*** No core update as I already used the latest version from https://debian.beagleboard.org/images/bone-debian-8.7-lxqt-4gb-armhf-2017-03-19-4gb.img.xz ***
cd /opt/scripts/tools
git pull
git clone https://github.com/beagleboard/bb.org-overlays
cd ./bb.org-overlays
./install.sh
sudo reboot

But this leaves me still with half a screen and no GPIO pins mapped?
