LCD not working with Latest Buster - chilicon - 03-10-2020

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).
