Updating kernel panic

One set of drivers is for the actual LCD display screen, and the other set of drivers is for the touchscreen sensors.Here is a good article explaining Linux kernel modules, devices, and drivers, which you may want to read for some background information.

There are two types of drivers we need to be concerned with here.

The standard version of Raspbian does not include the drivers for LCD touchscreens, so we will need to install and configure them manually.

So just follow the steps below to get your LCD touchscreen working on the Raspberry Pi.

In these cases, you should configure the touchscreen from scratch, as I’ll show you how to do in this tutorial.

This process has been tested and works on the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B as well as older versions of the Raspberry Pi. I’m using the Waveshare 3.2″ TFT LCD touchscreen with fresh install of Raspbian Jessie Full.

But what if you want to run a clean, updated version of Raspbian, without any bloatware included with the manufacturer’s image?

Also, you might want to install a different OS such as Rasbmc or XBMC.If you’re using a version of Raspbian released Press Ctrl-X then Y to exit Nano and save the changes.Note: As of the 1-31-15 release of Raspbian, the fbturbo drivers are now included and enabled by default.Raspbian Jessie Lite won’t work with the touchscreen because it doesn’t have X-Server and the fbturbo video driver installed.A lot of LCD touchscreens can be set up by this process, but check here to see if your LCD is supported by the FBTFT driver to make sure.This seems to be caused by the Raspberry Pi bootloader package overwriting the FBTFT kernel and modules during the update/upgrade install.
