Setup OLED display for WARP7

I'm trying to setting up OLED display (display use MikroBus) for WARP7.

Is it possible to combine these item together ?

When i use FBTFT Driver (support SSD1351 controller).

It always return error.

=====

#modprobe fbtft_device name=pioled debug=3

> spi_busnum_to_master(0) returned NULL
> fbtft_device: failed to register spi device

=====

 

I also tried to modify linux kernel (check (*) or (M) for almost all "graphic device support" & "spi" support in menuconfig to use framebuffer but error return.

=====

> Error opening /dev/fb0: No such file or directory

=====

I really lost here since I did not work much with linux or embedded before.

The questions are:

- Is there any knowledge or tutorial or something that I should learn / follow as newbie.

- Do i go in right ways ?

====== i think the ways should be below =====

1. Plug board & display together (use MikroBus standard)

2. Power up for BOARD via USB (picocom)

3. Enable all PINs (except AN & 3.3V PIN) by linux command "echo" for GPIO

4. Run FBTFT Driver to enable display (use fb_ssd1351 modules of FBTFT driver) 

5. Run "echo" command to send data to framebuffer (/dev/fb0) to display console or something on OLED display

===================================

 

Note: I 've read user_guideline many times and do "google-ing" for OLED display but results are about Raspberry, Arduino, others board, or LCD (not OLED).
