Looks Awesome! Please share your ROM as for other people have been trying to get mini-PCIE graphic card on Galileo.
Ling, are you running a Debian kernel? Can you share that process?
Awesome! Could you share the ROM image with us ?
Besides, where did you get this tiny usb display? Mini-PCIe gfx card is a little bit expensive for me, I am looking for devices like this.
Sure. I still need some time to configure my ROM. Will send out the ROM as soon as I'm ready.
No, I'm not running Debian kernel. The kernel is still built from yocto build system.
Basically I'm doing the same steps as Thomas_Faust_(Intel) described in discussion:
But I'm not using the default kernel from Galileo yocto installation.
To enable RoboPeak USB display support, I have to enable more kernel options as rpusbdisp project suggested.
Also include necessary kernel modules to the ROM.
To resolve libpthread random crash issue, I patched the lock cmpxchg to nop cmpxchg. The diff looks like bellow.
After all these done, you can boot debian in the Galileo.
Then, use apt-get to install xorg, gdm3, gnome-core. Very easy hah.
At last, do some simple xorg configure as rpusbdisp project suggest, startx, you should see the desktop in the usb display now.
Yes, I need to tell more about the tiny usb display.
It's a very cool product. I'm using it in my raspberry pi and other miniPC also.
You can get more information about this display from RoboPeak's website:
Even if Galileo was designed to be headless, Makes can make everything possible. Nice job.
This is one more example why I would like to see a standard Linux distro in Galileo. (Someone should write instructions how to patch/build a vanilla kernel to boot it on Quark)
I'm wondering how often my original thread (about the debian/debootstrap) is referenced right now.
I have added these drivers to the kernel in the galileo-debian image, but I do not (yet) have one of these devices to test with. If anyone that does have one of these (Ling?) can verify thees rs drivers, then I'll continue on, adding the user space config, and maybe enabling a couple of other kernel drivers (like USB_KBD) that would be useful.
Anyone have this as a packaged ROM yet?
I'm looking for this display and snd-usb-audio included. I'm in over my head trying to patch and build on the board.
Lilliput also makes really common DisplayLink based USB display. I found the kernel driver https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/fb/udlfb.txt which apparently looks like any other frame buffer device. I'll start a new topic if I get the thing tested.
I'll turn on that driver too.
Just confirming that I got the Lilliput display working with the kernel driver in your latest release.
Now to figure out how to get mplayer to work
