How to install driver on RPI

#1 Post by aab163 »


I have the sim inovation up and running and the RPI is visble in the AM.

I would like to update the display driver for my 5" LCD. I have copied a tar file over containing the drivers to the SD card and i am supposed to follow this instructions:

cd /boot
sudo tar zxvf LCD-show.tar.gz
cd LCD-show/
sudo ./MPI5001-show

But i don't really know the commands to start typing in the console - what ever i write it does not execute anything. Do i need to close the RPI AM player? and if so how do i do that?

Anyone have the list of key commands?

You'll need to do this trough SSH, with a tool like Putty. ...
