No display on LVDS while running fsl-image-multimedia-full on iMX6qSabreSD

Hi,

I checked out the fsl-community-bsp repo fido branch:

$repo init -u https://github.com/Freescale/fsl-community-bsp-platform -b fido;

$repo sync

Then, I built the fsl-image-multimedia-full image for iMX6qSabreSD.

$ source setup-environment build

$ cd build

$ bitbake fsl-image-multimedia-full

Then, I flashed the SD card using the dd command:

$sudo dd if =./tmp/deploy/images/ imx6qsabresd/fsl-image-multimedia-full-imx6qsabresd.sdcard of =/ dev /sdb bs =1M

Then, I tried to boot the iMXqSabreSD board with SD card image. I have a 10-inch LVDS display connected to the target. The image boots up and login prompt comes up on serial console.

But, there is no output on LVDS display. Can someone help on what could be the issue?

Thanks, !

Hello Vinoth Kumar,

What you are seeing is the expected behavior of that image. The fsl-image-multimedia-full is a console-only image that includes gstreamer packages and Freescale’s multimedia packages (VPU and GPU) when available for the specific machine selected. The title may have mislead you into thinking it has a GUI but it does not. I would recommend using perhaps one of the qt images in case you need a GUI.

Hi gusarambula,

Thanks for the reply. Could you tell me the name of any of the qt images to try?

Thanks again.

Hello Vinoth Kumar,

You may bake the qt-in-use-image or qt4-in-use-image from the FSL Community BSP.


Or you may switch to the BSP Release and bake fsl-image-gui or fsl-image-qt.

I hope this helps!
