LCD Screen connected to GPIO


I’m trying to get the OSMC display on an LCD screen I connected on the GPIO pins. I am wondering if anyone has actually managed to sort this same issue already.

I have a RaspberryPi B+ with a resistive touch LCD screen connected on the GPIO pins. While I can get a proper display for Raspbian after installing the drivers provided by the vendor, I cannot achieve the same on OSMC. When I install the driver provided on top of OSMC, the overall OS crashes and the Rasp Pi does not boot. I think it is because the drivers are meant to be exclusively for Raspbian.

To try a different approach, I installed Kodi on top of Raspbian. The installation was successful and the Kodi Media Player application got listed on Raspbian too, but I could not open the application for some reason. The device seems to be hanging altogether. Any ideas on what else can be done?

Many thanks,

Kodi uses OpenGLES.
This needs some tricks to be used on the gpio lcd framebuffer. See here:

Edit: As the linked page states, it isn’t working at all at the moment.
