after bootup (me doing nothing - just xorg loading):

[   50.105957] td028ttec1_panel_suspend()
[   50.131927] gta04_disable_lcd()
[   50.911926] td028ttec1_panel_resume()

then I do

	echo 1 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio57/value

to turn it on (works)

when the display suspends after a 10 minute timeout (works and gets dark):

[  355.885772] td028ttec1_panel_suspend()
[  355.898132] gta04_disable_lcd()

then I tap the display (backlight doesnt turn on):

[  368.835754] td028ttec1_panel_resume()

then I do

	echo 1 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio57/value

to turn it on (works)

indeed - the basic functionality is indeed there which is extremely great :)


another thing i'm playing with is the display resolution. currently it
omapfb.mode=lcd:640x480 which is of course wrong and distorts half of
the display output. I changed it to omapfb.mode=lcd:480x640 which made
the output of the linux penguin during bootup show up correctly but xorg
is now believing to have a 1024x768 display - wtf?? of course one only
sees the top left corner of the 1024x768 screen on the display...

what fixed this issue for the 3.1 kernel was:
https://gitorious.org/gta04/gta04-kernel/commit/0e0a2d8bb2461c3effe3a01955f65118b4f63177
but i guess the video= argument is now replaced by omapfb.mode ?

cheers, josch
