First of all, thanks Jean-Francois for all the help.
I started this morning trying to get the touchscreen to work but
I keep running into problems:
In regards to your steps this is what I got:
STEP 1-Creating the /dev/input/event0 in the gumstix
I follow the instructions and I get and Error (see below)
I think the 'pwd' is not working for me, so I tried this:
make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=/home/gumstix-buildroot/build_arm_nofpu/staging_dir/bin/arm-linux-
This command gives me no error but when I download it to the gumstix,
I don't even get a /dev/input. /dev/input is missing.!!!
*** End of Linux kernel configuration.
*** Execute 'make' to build the kernel or try 'make help'.
colinux:/home/gumstix-buildroot/build_arm_nofpu/linux-2.6.15gum# make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE='pwd'/../staging_dir/bin/arm-linux-
make: pwd/../staging_dir/bin/arm-linux-gcc: Command not found
SPLIT include/linux/autoconf.h -> include/config/*
SYMLINK include/asm-arm/arch -> include/asm-arm/arch-pxa
make: `include/asm-arm/mach-types.h' is up to date.
/bin/sh: line 1: pwd/../staging_dir/bin/arm-linux-gcc: No such file or directory
make: *** [arch/arm/kernel/asm-offsets.s] Error 1
make: *** [prepare0] Error 2
STEP 2 - building TSLIB (patching the kernel for touchscreen support)
I downloaded the tslib.tar.gz from http://www.realfafard.com/fafard/index.php?id=31
I unpacked it to the /home/gumtix-buildroot/build_arm_nofpu/package/tslib
I edited Config.in in /home/gumtix-buildroot/build_arm_nofpu/package/ and I added the 'source /package/tslib/Config.in' entry.
then I ran 'make menuconfig' from /home/gumtix-buildroot, I went to packages and I selected tslib.
This did not work because I did not have CVS, so I did a 'apt-get install cvs' then I tried again
This time it downloaded the files but I get this error:
toolchain/patch-kernel.sh /home/gumstix-buildroot/build_arm_nofpu/tslib package/tslib/configure.ac.patch
Aborting. 'package/tslib/configure.ac.patch' is not a directory.
make: *** [/home/gumstix-buildroot/build_arm_nofpu/tslib/.unpacked] Error 1
STEP 3 get new ts.c
STEP 4 create new Xserver
I have not tried STEPS 3&4 becase STEPS 1&2 are not working yet.
Again, thanks for all your help
PS. I do not know how to post to the initial thread, so this post will end up somewhere else
