Modifed HDMI Driver for 1024x600 (others possible)

Hi,

I modified the HDMI driver to support 1024x600 for my small LCD panel.
I also created an Excel based calulator to create other resolutions.

I'd like to give that back to the community. How should I do this ?

This is not what I meant.
I modified the video driver kernel module, so everybody who wants to use that must recompile the kernel.
Therefore I wanted to check the modified code back to the GIT Repository, so that all future releases would have that feature.
But I don't have the permission to do that.

However, if it is not possible, o.k. for me. My Banana just works fine ;-)

You can send a pull request to here https://github.com/LeMaker/linux-sunxi/tree/lemaker-3.4-dev

O.k. I did, no answer yet.

Still no answer. In the meantimne I understand why Banana Pi does not get as much support as Raspberry.
I'll resign my request and keep my stuff  by myself.

I don't see a pull request here: https://github.com/LeMaker/linux-sunxi/pulls - so whatever you did, it wasn't a Pull Request there.
Why don't you just attach a diff here?
From what I understood, you changed default behaviour of the driver. So a pull request would not have been the way to go anyway, I guess. A patch for people who need it should be fine.

I already removed that GIT account.
I just added another resolution to the table. The default behaviour is the same.

I'm assuming you made a modification to hdmi_core.c right? If so I would love to see a diff here since I'm also in the process of connecting a 1024x600 LCD display (using HDMI) and while this display works flawlessly with Raspberry Pis I get sync problems on Banana Pi.

I'd love to see the changes too!
