Enable Winstar WF101 TFT display on Olimex Lime2

Recommended Posts


I am trying to enable Winstar TFT display on Olimex Lime2 board under the kernel 5.4. Display spec is here:




Up to the day we've been using the legacy kernel 3.4 and the display worked fine -- the u-boot was compiled with the settings (CONFIG_VIDEO_LCD_MODE, CONFIG_VIDEO_LCD_POWER etc) suggested here:



When I try to use the same settings in the mainline sources of armbian, the display does not work. I've enabled backlight with a DTS overlay and the backlight works but the display stays blank.


Here is the output of dmesg:


[    2.846134] printk: console [ttyS0] enabled

And these are u-boot settings:




I am at loss and any suggestions will be hightly appreciated.

Thank you!
