Oh! :o I had no idea... :lol:

Thanks, PeterO! Now then, what of Mesa support?

Re: rPi LCD screen integration

Wow, that looks very cool; nice going! :o

Does the display act like a regular TV/HDMI-connected LCD? I've seen other people do things with LCDs, but require a framebuffer.

Mesa, OpenGL, and OpenGL ES

Hi there. Is it true that the Raspberry Pi on Raspbian Wheezy doesn't support OpenGL nor OpenGL ES? Also, is it possible to get Mesa onto the system? If so, do you have any links to resources for it, or do you yourself know how it's done? Thanks!

Re: Composite vs HDMI

Yeah, I thought as much. Thanks for the input, toxibunny. I may purchase this one soon enough. I'd use it to display 320x240 "games" (self-made projects) on it. Do you think that'd look fine in composite?

Re: Composite vs HDMI

Thanks for the reply, klricks. Unfortunately, 7" is far too large for what I am aiming for. I'm trying to make my own miniature gaming system of sorts, and would prefer a 3.5" or less screen. Any ideas where I could find one of those? I haven't had much luck as of yet. Also, isn't the Foundation sup...

Composite vs HDMI

Hi. I recently purchased a cheap LCD that attaches to my Pi via its GPIO pins. It's an incredibly small LCD, but it works well. The only issue is that it's through GPIO, so there was a lot of driver issues to go through to enable it to display the console and x11 interfaces. Unfortunately, I haven't...

Re: Multiple Componenets Plugged Into a Single Pin?

Thank you for the information, joan.

What would be a workaround for monitoring data from a pin, if I absolutely needed to plug two things into a single pin? Or is it moot to ask because it just wouldn't work? What have others done as workarounds?

Re: Multiple Componenets Plugged Into a Single Pin?

Perhaps my terminology was off (again, I'm new to this). What I mean is this: say I have an LCD module and an RTC module which both need to, let's say for example, tap into pin 1. How do I connect both of them to pin 1? Would there be issues involved with sending multiple channels of data into singl...

Multiple Componenets Plugged Into a Single Pin?

Hello. I didn't see a more suitable forum to post this, so I'll do so here. I was wondering if it is possible to attach multiple components to a single pin on the RPi. Is this possible? If so, does anyone have links to resources furthering the idea? I am completely new to these sorts of things. Than...

Looking for a suitable ribbon cable

Hello sirs and madams. This post has some relations to screens and displays, so I thought it be best if I posted it here (forgive me if I am incorrect). Mainly, I am looking for a suitable ribbon cable to attach an LCD module via GPIO to my Pi. Here is the LCD I am purchasing. The picture has single...

Re: GPIO LCD

What I meant by "official" is that there are some LCD modules floating about that were created with RPi in mind. Here is an example.

I've been researching miniature LCD screens for the Raspberry Pi for a short whiles now, and this certainly suits my fancy! :D So you're using a SainSmart 1.8" LCD Module, huh? Interesting. How's the refresh rate? It looked decent in the video, but that was 240p, so... :lol:

Ha, I didn't even see the voltage. :lol: Well, that's too bad. :| I was looking for one that is self-contained and not dependent upon another power supply. Not too bad though. On another note, do you know anything about using a Nintendo GBA or DS or DSi LCD screen? I've heard murmurs about it, but h...

One more thing: the link provided by joan shows that the power necessary is "<=3W". Would the Pi's power supply bleed into this? In other wor...

Re: GPIO LCD

So I did a crap-load of research and have concluded that has composite jacks/plugs is the best option out there. Now then, would it be possible to remove the casing from an LCD package and leave the screen and bare bones? If so, I could definitely buy a screen like the one joan suggested, remove the...

It uses GPIO to connect to the RPI, and I was wondering how that would work with displays. Would my RPi automatically begin...

I removed syslog, x11-common and ssh, and it has already improved boot time by 8 seconds.
