Thanks Scott,

Changing the 1 to 0 resolved my issues. I thought I disabled all of the touchscreens in the kernel config but I must of miss that one. Since I don't need a touch screen interface I will make sure I remove all of them and recomplie.

Thanks again

You have the LGPHILIPS display driver configured in your kernel


That uses CS1 on SPI bus 1 which is the default for spike so there
is a conflict.

In spike.c try changing

#define SPI_BUS_CS1 1


#define SPI_BUS_CS1 0

Recompile and see if it works.

If so, you should change the name of that constant to something
not so dumb, like SPI_BUS_CS

It's used in add_spike_device_to_bus()
