Driver missing ADS7846 kernel 4.19.y

Recommended Posts

Just for information,

I have tested ADS7846 touchscreen on new 4.19.y Bionic Orangepi one.

What I did to get it work:


1. Upgrade dtc to version 1.4.7.

By default it was dtc version 1.4.5 and I have get errors while trying to do " armbian-add-overlay sun8i-h3-spi-ads7846.dts"


2. There is missing driver in kernel by default, so I have installed ubuntu bionic 18.04.1 LTS on PC.

After that use this guide https://docs.armbian.com/Developer-Guide_Build-Preparation/

Switch on ADS7846 module, then install new compiled package linux-image-next-sunxi_5.74_armhf.deb on OrangePi-one.
