Hyperpixel driver for piCore


#1

Hi, is there any way of getting the Hyperpixel screen to work with piCore (TinyCore Linux)?

I suspect that it’s possible, but I don’t know enough about the innards of piCore to approach giving it a try.

You should attempt to transplant the dtoverlay and config.txt changes into the right places, fire it up and then SSH in to copy over and run the hyperpixel4-init binary that initialises the display. Your mileage may vary but it’s worth a shot!

Thanks for the reply.

It worked! - fantastic

For others using piCorePlayer or tinyCore just need to install git
tce-load -wi git
then clone the hyperpixel files
git clone https://github.com/pimoroni/hyperpixel4 hyperpixel

mount the boot partition
mount /mnt/mmcblk0p1

cd hyperpixel
I edited the install.sh file to use /mnt/mmcblk0p1 instead of /boot (probably an easier way of doing this but it works)

run the installer
./install.sh
reboot
run hyperpixel4-init from ~/hyperpixel/dist/
