Re: [microblaze-uclinux] VGA controller in Microblaze
Thanks a lot for your answer. I am using the XPS TFT ip core (which is
available in IP Catalog -> IO Modules, in EDK 10.1).
I will take a look to the framebuffer drivers that you told me.
Anyway, I think I will have to activate the 'framebuffer support' in
the Petalinux configuration, is that right?
In addition to this, I will try to figure out which is the most
suitable graphics engine for my system because I am using fbcon and I
don't know if it is very common in embedded systems.
I could find this framebuffer in the directory
/linux-2.6.x/drivers/video/console/fbcon.c. However, when I create the
petalinux kernel and I explore the directory /romfs/dev/, it seems
that the only frammebuffers that I have are '@console,c,5,1' and
'@fb0,c,29,0' (is the fbcon framebuffer really activated?). I have not
tested it yet, but, before doing this, it would be great to know if my
kernel is properly configured.
Thank you very much for your help John.

My problems are related to the EDK project. I don't really know

Please if you know any place where some cores are avaliable (or

You will require a framebuffer device driver - they are quite simple

Which VGA IP core are you using?
