This is done in a kernel source file called board-overo. In the defconfig file it says “Automatically generated make config: Others will be able to help with the hardware. Hi Hugo, The spidev kernel driver only exposes the spi kernel interface to user-space programs. If you only want to read, have the master send enough 0 bits or random bits and use only the received bits sent by the slave.

Regards, Thierry On Mon, Aug 30, at However, slave operation is possible in certain circumstances, either when the devices involved don’t require an immediate response, or when the next transfer on the bus can be predicted in advance.
Many thanks, and please go easy, my experience with linux is limited! Were you saying in your post here that i dont even have a chance to use SPI on the pin header if the board is configured for touchscreen use? How then do I make sure the touchscreen is disabled? Most of it has been merged already. Hi Hugo, Don’t bother with the patch for BeagleBoard.
Category:SPI – Gumstix User Wiki
Dear Thierry, Oh ok, I thought I read somewhere that Spidev was only capable of “half gumstiix, but that must have been referring to something else. Search everywhere only in this topic.
This is done in a kernel source file called board-overo. For example, this post: Linux and likely every other operating system is incapable of that response time.
SPI and Gumstix Overo w/Summit Board
Please could I trouble you for a brief guide on how to apply the patch? You should customize that patch for the particular device s you are using. Resolving any missing task queue dependencies NOTE: Regards, Norman Benny B. SPI can’t be used on the external 40 pin header on a board gumztix support touchscreen because of the way Gumstix has made the level conversion.
Don’t hesitate to ask if you are stuck.
There is no SPI slave implementation for Linux, and likely never can be, for the reasons periodically discussed on the mailing list: Hi, The wiki page you mention targets the PXA-based motherboards. I have fixed this problem, which originated from my using a terminal-only tty1 which didn’t allow menuconfig to open the required gumsstix. Join now, and jumpstart your future. Humstix you might want to change are the bus speed and the mode.
It would be really useful to have some sample code for the gumstix which uses Spidev. Enter the Intel R Threading Challenge Most existing SPI drivers do the device registration completely outside the driver code in a board file.
I only use the PXA processors. Take advantage of special opportunities to increase revenue and speed time-to-market. There is always a gumsitx received when a bit is sent by the master. Hi Hugo, The spidev kernel driver only exposes the spi kernel interface to user-space programs. spo
You do not have to worry about the clock or the CS lines. It doesn’t matter which order these steps are performed.
You will have to disable one or both of these drivers in your kernel config if you want to use those respective CS lines. In reply to this post by Benny B. Free forum by Nabble. There is no org. I do not think it is done in the latest kernels, so you will have to create a patch for this file and add it to the kernel bitbake recipe to patch the file when the kernel is built.
