Nice acquisition

I have tested the Touch Screen only using OpenSuse Leap version 42.2 operational system.

For some project requirements I had to use a 64bits operational system. And, as far as I know, this is the only 64bits operational
system for the pi, at the time of writing.

I was unable to make the touch screen work just as plug & play on this operational system. But after 5 min on google I could find the answer at: en.opensuse.org/HCL:Raspberry_Pi3

I had to blacklist the vc4 module. You can do it by adding the following kernel parameter:
modprobe.blacklist=vc4

At the time of writing, this is achieved as root:
vi /etc/default/grub
add the above option to the list of options on the variable GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX and save the file
then remake the grub cfg configuration file:
grub2-mkconfig > /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
 

Pro

  • works nicely

Contra

  • does not work as plug & play on opens use leap 42.2
