    Lilliput touchscreen driver for custom linux distro

    Hello, For the last week I've been working on making my own linux distro and I have gotten to the stage where all the base system has been compiled and want to get the touchscreen working but I've hit some problems the install scripts don't work as I have no Red Hat Package Manager installed so I tried the manully install guide but God knows where the touchcfg program is kept :P anyway after 3 hours or so I recomplied my kernel to use 2.6.9 and added support for the USB touchscreen drivers which seem to be the same (I maybe wrong) anyway now the touchscreen works but it's out of sync so if I want to go up I have to move the stylus thingy to the bottom. Has anyone gotten around this? I noticed someone said he was making a driver for 2.6 kernels did he even finish this or am I doing it right and just missing some settings in my xorg.conf file?

    Thanks if you can help,

    Immolo

    Lilliput Linux Drivers

    Hello, I managed to hack the makefiles enough to get the drivers at egalax's site to work on Debian Sarge with a 2.6.8 kernel. I found the touchkitusb module to not work at all. Did you use touchkitusb and then just point X to /dev/usb/tkpanel0 or some sort of incantation? Let me know if you want more info about how I got this working. I actually just re-did the process today so it's fresh in my mind. Hope I can be of some help.

    I can't get them to complie I've done a little bit of hacking of the fedora install script but not much like and that was all the people at egalax.com.tw could offer as support, if you could spend a small amount of time pointing me the right way I would be greatful

    touchcfg should be in /usr/bin if your paths are set right you should just be able to run it from anywhere. However I'm not sure if there is support in X or not for the touchscreen check this thread: http://linuxfromscratch.org/pipermai...st/001927.html

    The support at egalax seem to think that the problem is to do with the gcc 3.4 complier so maybe a lfs 5.1.1 would do the job or has anyone had exprince with the drivers been compiled with gcc 3.4?

    I'm on LFS 5.1.1, but I don't have the TFT yet. Has anyone gotten the drivers to work on a custom distribution? The SuSe 9.0 drivers can be build on LFS 5.1.1 without errors. The install script doesn't seem to work out of the box, there are probably some modifications needed? Maybe it's possible to do it all by hand? There are no binary drivers or kernel modules that can't be built from source?
