LCD not functioning with A64-LTS/SOPINE
dkryder:  Yes, I understand that they are development boards and all that.  I was kind of hoping with the SOPINE, though, that all I would have to do is redesign the base board and I would be on my way.  

Luke: I'm using the PSU that was supplied by Pine64.  Looks like it's a 5V 3Amp SMPS unit.  

In further testing I've rigged up a serial interface to monitor the serial port output while the system boots up.  There are a few things in the output that seem concerning.

Here's a small snippet from the display driver initiation:


init_clocks: finish init_clocks.
fdt_get_one_gpio lcd0.lcd_gpio_1 fail
fdt_get_one_gpio lcd0.lcd_gpio_2 fail

It looks like there is something going wrong there.  I'm not quite sure what.

Another interesting thing is that when I boot up without the HDMI plugged in it seems to spend about ten minutes trying to display the boot logo.

Something's not right here, but I presume that others have got this working reliably?  Although, if there is I haven't heard from a single one.
