  • @dragu I haven't checked in-depths how it works, but you might simply build it in raspbian and copy it over to recalbox

    Now, problem, what version of Raspian should I need to stay compatible with Recalbox ? I have spare SD's and can always shoot one for my bartop if it will work. Otherway my spare PI's are used up.



  • @dragu the most "secure" version would be one with kernel 4.4

    My bartop dont stops with crying, but I arrive to install, and activate ssh (what is not activated by default after nov16, beep) Also no cmake inside, but installed also now. And this cmake give me an error,

    pi@Raspian:~/fbcp-ili9341/build $ cmake -DFREEPLAYTECH_WAVESHARE32B=ON

    Sure and after juj description you make mkdir build and after cd build (empty) so he cannot find this file there but a level lower, somebody make a mistake or cmake changed...
    Finally I arrive, but errors

    Ok, I understand, he wanted one more parameter, not easy to read between lines. So he build something, must just find it

    Ok, I have an executable, now somebody must tell me where is equivalent to rc.local in Recalbox ?



  • @dragu no such files. Startup scripts are in /etc/init.d. create a S02iliblabla, get the basic structure of an init file, and launch it at start.

    But first, you'd better try by launching it manually through ssh and make sure it works. If ypu just write an init script, you'll never get any ettor message

    Petite question, pour recompiler, vaut-il mieux d'effacer le contenu du build précédent ?

    Bonne idée de le lancer en ssh. Bon, il affiche rien pour le moment, mais me sort tout un tas de messages sophistiqués

    Ok, I also found this cmake option
    "-DDMA_RX_CHANNEL=<num>: Specifies the DMA channel number to use for SPI receive commands. Change this if you find a DMA channel conflict."
    What would you propose, Master ?


  • Banned

    Yes, we can. I used DMA channel 4 for RX, and the result

    I will try to stretch a little the sides if possible, but already very nice



  • @dragu To recompile, the best is to make clean

    Regarding the values, the best is probably to ask Flavor


  • Banned

    @Substring
    I was more brutal using rm -r ;)
    But @Flavor dont use fbcp-ili9341, there is even no word about in the forum. Anyway, I am near the end with this one also. Pretty well working all this with standard Recalbox and just small addons. When I am finished with scaling here, there is just staying one point to close the thread.


  • Banned

    Vive la France, so I hope everybody recuperate for tomorrow.... ;)
    Ok, concerning fbcp-ili9341, I am finished and adjust now the TFT screen to the viewport matching the physical window in the GBA shell. After 2 dozens of recompilations, and I have a version for all other people that will buy this kit. As you can see in the fotos, this fit. That they are round is fault of the lens. :)

    So this story also over.

    Now only thing what stays is the software for the brightness controller of the display background.

    But with the automatic starting I will need some help.
    I tried first to put it in custom.sh to not meddle in the Recalbox system, my driver in
    /recalbox/share/system/fbcp-ili9341/fbcp-ili9341
    custom.sh :

    #!/bin/bash
    
    start() {
    
    /recalbox/share/system/fbcp-ili9341/fbcp-ili9341 &
    }
    
    stop() {
    
    }
    
    case "$1" in
      start)
            start
            ;;
      stop)
            stop
            ;;
    esac
    

    after no effect, I added fbcp-ili4391 to /usr/bin/fbcp-ili9341 and replaced start line with ./fbcp-ili9341 &
    again no result
    After this I created S02fbcp-ili9341 inside /etc/init.d

    #!/bin/bash
    
    /recalbox/share/system/fbcp-ili9341/fbcp-ili9341 &
    esac
    exit $?
    

    and also with ./fbcp-ili9341 &
    Both fbcp-ili9341 have the flag 755

    Not working. What is my error ?



  • @dragu Make sur your binary is in /usr/bin + also make sure it has executable rights. Then simply create a /etc/init.d/S02ili9341
    which should hold:

    #!/bin/bash
    
    #!/bin/bash
    
    start() {
    
    /usr/bin/fbcp-ili9341 &
    }
    
    stop() {
    
    }
    
    case "$1" in
      start)
            start
            ;;
      stop)
            stop
            ;;
    esac
    

    You should use an absolute path to the file. Easy way to test it : in SSH, just run /etc/init.d/S02ili9341 start and tell us about the output

    The next good idea would be to daemonize the fbcp thing, but that's absolutely not mandatory

    @Dragu S02fbcp-ili9341 seems to be e bit early to try to start fbcp... you should try S13 after S12populateshare


  • Banned

    @Substring
    @ian57
    The script give me an error with ...... start

    /etc/init.d/S02fbcp-ili9341: line 10: syntax error near unexpected token `}'
    

    line 10 is just the closing accolade for stop (because no content ?)

    }
    
    stop() {
    
    }
    


  • @dragu ah yeah indeed. Just add a echo -n ""


  • Banned

    @Substring
    @ian57
    Yes, echo -n"" helped :) Starting in ssh was ok, but not as S02.... in /etc/init.d
    So, I put the lines into custom.sh started automatic by S99custom. And it works just after the loading screen. So takes some time. Do you think it could be loaded before splash screen, or not possible ?



  • @dragu as ian said, and i forgot about it : the usual fbcp is started rather late (somewhere in S13) most probably due to device setup time. So rename it to S13blabla
