LCD not working with Latest Buster
#1
Using the latest BUSTER DEBIAN version available as of today, the LCD does not work. Only HDMI even after adding the line
pine64_lcd=on
in the proper file (/boot/armbianEnv.txt).
How can one make the LCD work with that OS?

Hi chilicon, I have had the same problem:

It seems that the Armbian mainline kernel doesn't support the LCD gt9xxf_ts module (confirmed by Pine), but you may be able to use a legacy kernel or OS image to get the LCD to work for you.

For my purposes I have abandoned the 7" LCD and am using a Waveshare 5" LCD panel using HDMI+USB. It's a shame because it would have been much more elegant to use the DSI interface (to avoid having large connector plugs, for one).

Hello I have the same exact problem!
So disappointed! it seems the only solution is to roll back to an old image, is there any other way to use the lcd and touch?
Otherwise I have to buy a Waveshare and abandon the nice use of flat cable.

thanks
