1 Replies and 1299 Views Linux 2.6.19 loadable modules?  1299  1 Started by  rbunce Has anyone tried using loadable modules yet I've created modules for older versions of Linux (on other projects) but I understand that there is now a new method which generates *.ko files using kbuild. I have set up the kernel to support modules, but so far I can't work out how to build the modules themselves. I'm happy with the "C" code, it's just the build process I'm stuck on. If any of you has an example Make file or any other tips it would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, ...

2 Replies and 1442 Views How can i get the LCD-3.5-QVGA-10 to run on Linux 2.6.22  1442  2 Started by  ecastelo I have tried many things, and seen many different results but i cannot get the LCD to display anything useful. In LOLO i do: video-open 6 16 draw-test I see the boxes like the manual says. I then tried to get DirectFB to build, but it complains that the Kernel Headers must be included. When i select DirectFB, i cannot select Include Kernel Header, so i am assuming it is set automatically, but it does not build. Qtopia complains about Qtopia-tslib. I am not sure if i even need these package...

4 Replies and 1441 Views Using lolo to write binary to nor flash  1441  4 Started by  Deleted User I'm trying to use lolo load and burn commands to burn a raw binary image to the NOR flash. However, no matter what flash adress I use in the load command the subsequent burn command warns me that the one or more of the first sectors will be erased (supposedly containing lolo config). Anyone knows the trick to write something to the NOR flash on a i.MX31 Litekit Version 2&46;4&46;0-IMX31_10 0001 ***************************************************************** losh> ifconfig sm0 /dev...

2 Replies and 1423 Views arcotg_udc.ko hangs while loading..  1423  2 Started by  Deleted User I have a SOM board with MCIMX31CVKN5C (Core 2)(commercial industrial grade) and i am running linux on that. With this SOM board I have a problem while loading arcotg_udc.ko module. This module hangs and after debugging further I found that it hangs at cpu_to_le32() function. I was able to load the same arcotg_udc.ko module successfully on SOM board with MCIMX31VKNB (core 1.2). I haven't gone in depth to understand the difference in Core1.2 and core 2. It looks like the difference ...

7 Replies and 1417 Views iMX31 without MC13783 can't uncompress Linux kernel  1417  7 Started by  serkam Dear Sirs We finished a board with iMX31LC ( BGA 0.8mm ), based 100 in the Litekit, but, without MC13783 ( companion chip ). In its place we designed a voltage sequencer using a Pic18F2321, LDOs and MOSFETs to switch the several voltages in proper sequence, as recommended by Freescale. For a while we are using the LogicLoader to debug the hardware and apparently, all things are going well. The board is stable, the LoLo runs stable, and I can run several routines for hardware tests without ra...

2 Replies and 1473 Views LK043T1DG0 LCD connection  1473  2 Started by Talking to Logic PD on supported LCDs, we were recommended the Sharp 4.3” LCD part number LK043T1DG0 is supported with the iMX31-10 SOM. This LCD has 24 bit RGB lines. 8 bits for R,G and B. The SOM supplies only 6 bits for R,G and B. Where would I find the 6 extra interface pins on the SOM to support this LCD

0 Replies and 1389 Views linux- PCMCIA on the Litekit  1389  0 Started by  Deleted User I've been working off-n-on to get PCMCIA working on the litekit using, as well udev. I can see card insertions/deleteions, but don't have any created devices, nor do I ssee any uevents (that would trigger udev to wake up). I have SD card support working that uses udev to auto matically create /dev/mmcblock* devices on card insert, and want to do the same for PCMCIA memory CF cards. Has anyone gotten PCMCIA to work, complete with device entries, etc in 2.6.19 Thanks in advance!
