Compiling a kernel for OpenELEC with I2C support?

Fri Jul 06, 2012 1:10 pm

Hey,
I'm pretty new to Linux, and I need some help: I have an LCD screen that would connect on I2C port to the Pi. I saw that bootc's kernel supports I2C, however I can't use that kernel for OpenELEC (the Pi just hangs at the rainbow logo).
How can I compile a kernel for OpenELEC that has the I2C module? Or can I install this seperately (like a wifi driver)? If so, what do I have to do?
Thanks

hi, i wrote tutorial ( http://pobot.org/Activer-l-i2c-sur-la-Raspberry-Pi.html ). it's in french,
but I think you'll understand. the trick is to recover the .config file in the /boot/config* of Pre-compiled binary for Debian and place it at the root of the kernel's directory before compiling or doing make menuconfig. good luck
