Hi, I am looking for the ADV7842 driver for Linux 2.6 kernel. Please let me know if there is one.
The new timing API was introduced in v3.5. There are two things you can do, backport the new API to your kernel version, or try to rewrite the driver to not use the new timings API.
I'm not aware of one. Someone (not ADI) had made a Linux driver for ADV7604 which probably could be used with pretty minimal modifications. I don't know what kernel it's available for though.
There is a Linux driver that a third party wrote for the ADV7842, available here:
kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git - Linux kernel source tree
I think some ADI engineers used this Linux driver on the following project:
I hope this helps.
Hi Matt and Dave,
Thanks for your help. I looked through the codes but did not see the look up table we are looking for. We have the driver for the ADV7842 in 3.16.1 kernel, and our product is running 2.6 kernel. The look up table for timings of different monitors are completely different between the two kernels. We hope that someone already have that table in 2.6.
Thank you again for your help,
Which specific version of the 2.6 kernel are you using?
It is 2.6.37
Thanks for the info. We will look into rewriting the driver.
Though it is very old post but i would like to know have you written adv7842 driver for Linux kernel 2.6, I need adv7842 driver for our project in which we are using linux kernel 2.6.37
Any help will be appreciated.
