Something I bought in 2015, 2 Kedei 2 lcd 3.5 inch touch screens. Worked, albeit slow.
With a Wheezy image, not to be updated due to the kernel doing its SPI thing to copy the framebuffer to the LCD screen via fbcopy.
March 2020, installed the Kedei screen on a Raspberry Pi V2 and inserted the archived SD card. It works!
Update? No, the official repository moved on. But there is a legacy repository!
Replace this line in /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://legacy.raspbian.org/raspbian/ wheezy main contrib non-free rpi
and teh apt-get update works (be it with some warnings).
To test I installed MC and that went allright (be it with some warnings).
Screen quality is not too bad, screen refreshes are slow. In console mode it reminds me of the 9600 baud serial terminals!
Now I want autologon, no option in old raspiconfig!
sudo nano /etc/inittab
Scroll down to:
1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 115200 tty1
and change to
#1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 115200 tty1
Under that line add:
1:2345:respawn:/bin/login -f pi tty1 /dev/tty1 2>&1
Auto StartX (Run LXDE)
sudo nano /etc/rc.local
Scroll to the bottom and add the following above exit 0:
su -l pi -c startx
