Again, thanks for your reply.
Lessons Learned w/ a Gumstix & LCD Display:
Following the “gumstix” links provided and the “Setting up a build
environment”, where I bitbaked a “gumstix-basic-image” and then followed up
with “Replacing the file system image”, which allows you to flash both the
fs+kernel, I got my gumstix up and running from a terminal window – this
(apparently) includes the LCD software without any extra magic.
I then connected my LCD display backwards and obviously did not work, but it
did not burn anything down – no harm caused. I then re-inserted the LCD
ribbon cable with the gold-fingers facing upwards, as Drew suggested, where
you can see the J2 designator, rebooted, and bingo.
You can have a session from the serial port, as usual, but if you hook up a
USB keyboard to the USB connector on the gumstix, you can have a 2nd and
simultaneous session from the USB keyboard where you can actually interact
with the LCD display.
At this point “I don’t need to figure out how to talk to the LCD from my
terminal session”, so I am not going to go there. However, if anyone does
figure it out, or does know, please let us know.
