I’m working on a project and I’m looking to get an Adafruit 240x240 display installed on a Raspberry Pi Zero W. I’m using the kernel method so I can have direct access to the frame buffer using OpenGL.
From what I’m gathered, this display requires a kernel module/extension. Here is the Adafruit installer scripts
It expects access to /boot to do it’s work.
Reading Balena docs makes it seem like I need to compile and install the overlays and kernel extension into the reason-boot partition on the SD card prior to the first boot. Is this correct?
If that line of thinking is even correct, I’m not sure how to connect those dots.
One thought was, run the installer against a vanilla RaspberryPI image and then copy the compiled files off and putting them into the Balena/reason boot partition before the first boot, but I have no idea of the outcome.
Can anyone please shed some light?
