2009-06-29 21:23:58     Blackfin Rotary/Thumbwheel Input Device Driver

Hi,

 

I'm looking at this page linux-kernel-drivers-bfin-rotary.html which tells where to enable the Blackfin rotary encoder (for the BF54x).

 

If Im looking in the configuration (Make menuconfig) it should have been placed at following location:

 

Device Drivers  --->

   Input device support  --->

      < >   Joystick interface

      <M>   Event interface   

      [*]   Joysticks/Gamepads  --->

            <*>   Blackfin Rotary support

 

In the uClinux-dist-2008R1.5-RC3 I'm not able to find it at that location.

 

Does any one know if it has been moved to another location, and where I can find it ?

 

Best Regards

 

Kim Jensen.

the driver was added after the 2008R1.5 release.  use the 2008R1 svn branch for the kernel if you want the driver.

Do you know exactly which files I need to get from the 2008R1 svn ?

I mean it seems like you have worked with it at a time.

 

Best Regards

Kim.

you're on your own with backporting drivers -- just checkout the 2008R1 svn branch.  the branch is designed to replace the last release without troubles.
