raspberrypi-kernel : Breaks: raspberrypi-bootloader (< 1.201

by dbinott on Sat Sep 02, 2017 2:54 am

I am following this
https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-pit ... sy-install

when I try to run this
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
sudo apt-get install raspberrypi-bootloader adafruit-pitft-helper raspberrypi-kernel


I get this
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
adafruit-pitft-helper is already the newest version (0.7.1-1).
raspberrypi-bootloader is already the newest version (1.20150904-1).
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 raspberrypi-kernel : Breaks: raspberrypi-bootloader (< 1.20160324-1)
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.


What can I do to get this to work?

Thanks.

What version of Raspbian are you using?

stretch broke some things. We're trying to catch up. Can you drop back to Jessie?

Meanwhile, I'll make sure that this is on the to-do list.

Hi,
Did use yr image in jessie, and later in stretch, but in both XY axes are inverted. (move right on screen, cursor goes up.... )
Unable to recover, also not after calibration. PiTFT HX8357D on Raspi 2 and 3 - stretch latest.
Removed TFT and adafruit TFT support for the time being; will need the screen with touch though. When do you expect to update things?
Noticed lots of questions about the axes inversion not being recoverable on the net btw.

Have you tried this for the rotation?

Actually since I installed the screen originally using the Adafruit website, I initially used:
https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-pit ... sy-install
Which is for 3.5 PiTFT, the model I have.
I than tried the DIY, the fully manual etc etc. Finally I even tried a generic one, which was almost identical to the Adafruit 2.8 setup and calibration your link points at. No deal.
After the sizeable Jessie update the touchscreen axes swapped and inverted and are irreparable since. Same for the latest Stretch.

Hi,

Has this been resolved for Stretch yet? I do not know how to 'drop back to Jessie' without starting from scratch and the Pi I am using has a rather complex install process to try to start again. I was hoping to just drop your TFT #2441 onto my Pi as a status and control display.

Hi Chrisham, not to my knowledge... Later update/grade did not change a thing and for the PI-TFT35 there is still the old software. I couldn't find anything more recent then mid 2016. So, alas........

Well, as a screen (without touch) it is good quality and also useful, but indeed....
Watch it though, it is not that heavy, you might loose some leaves...;)

Can it be used as a scree with the PI? If so how?

Install the firm/soft-ware from adafruit using the 'manual' method.
If that does not work, install an extremely lean Jessie, install ada fruit as explained on the website about the PiTFT and than upgrade to Stretch. Last is the lesser method but still....

Enjoy!
