well, a minimal setup would be:
that might be not usable
You need a 5V DC (or slightly higher) supply, preferably capable of 2.5A. It must have thick enough wires to avoid too much voltage drop. You cannot use an AC supply directly, it may damage your Pi.

In accordance with one of the suggestions, I am using an HDMI connection to my television screen as a temporary display. I have properly formatted the MicroSD thanks to the help of the user who have answered my original question, and now all I have to do is install the drivers for the 2.2 inch display. I have seen the download page for these drivers, but it appears to be an image file that I would need to write to my MicroSD card. This would overwrite my Kali image, would it not?
You have not understood that installing Kali OS overwrites everything that was on the card beforehand including the TFT display drivers.TooltipTinkerer wrote: ↑Thu Apr 05, 2018 8:36 pmAgain, I'd like to apologise for my inexperience. I don't mean to be a bother.
It stands to reason that I'll have to remove Kali from my Micro SD card, which shouldn't be a hassle. I haven't actually done anything with it yet, so I can remove it without losing any valuable data.
At the moment, my current sequence of events looks like this:
1. Remove Kali.
2. Download the 2.2 inch TFT display drivers from here - http://www.raspberrypiwiki.com/index.ph ... SKU:398437
3. Install those drivers on the Pi.
4. Reinstall Kali upon completion of the driver installation.
What I need to know in order to proceed:
1. How do I remove Kali safely, without damaging or corruption the card.
2. Which steps on the display's wiki page (http://www.raspberrypiwiki.com/index.ph ... SKU:398437) do I actually follow? I was told previously that 'sudo rpi - update' could be dangerous.
3. What do I do with the display driver once it has finished installing? Do I simply rewrite my desired Linux kernel over it, or do I remove it first? If so, how would I do that?
The assertion that Raspbian is the only OS that we are allowed to talk about on this forum is, of course, nonsense. If this were the Raspbian sub-forum, then it might make some sense, but it isn't, so it doesn't.
yes, the only question is "where" you are more lucky to get a valid answer from experienced / actual users.
