I am trying to get the TC358743 to work on the TX2. In all posts on this forum information is fragmented and incomplete. I have not been able to get any output in log files that indicate that the driver is even attempting to be loaded.
the latest Kernel source(4.4 r32) has the drivers included(tc358743.c, tc358743_regs.h, tc358743.h) using menuconfig, I can enable the hardware in the device tree. This alone does not seem to be enough. I have attempted to insert and reference the DTSI files that cane be found with the drivers.
Obviously I am a novice, I would appreciate some guidance from someone that has gotten this working.
- Can the drivers included in the 4.4 kernel source be used unmodified?
- Where do I put the DTSI file and where is a good place to reference it from
- do I need to enable the module in menuconfig f I manually add the DTSI file
on of the posts I read indicates that the kernel module will not work and the driver must be compiled into the kernel, Is this still the case?
dmesg shows nothing pertaining to this driver loading or attempting to probe the hardware, I have verified the drivers compile and should be in my build. Is there a way to see if the driver is failing or just not even loading. Enable additional logging or look at other log files?
