Disable screen blanking on i.MX6 running Yocto

Hi everyone,

 

I'm running a Yocto build on an i.MX6 board and I'm trying to stop the screen from shutting off after 15 minutes of inactivity.  I've tried the following things with no success:

 

- passing consoleblank=0 to bootargs

- modifying drivers/tty/vt/vt.c with static int blankinterval = 0;

 

Neither of these has had any effect.

 

cat /sys/module/kernel/parameters/consoleblank returns a value of 900.

 

My system does not have setterm.

 

Please help!

 

Thanks

 

Marlon
