Well, I haven't performed this since I posted the solution that worked for me (yes, firezpi, I did manage to figure it out, as I stated in my posts; not sure where to go with your response...), but the message you pointed out look almost like the kernel was updated beyond what it was when I created my configs, thus rendering my configs obsolete. You're installing this on a Kali install? I don't have a lot of spare time, but I can try to look into it. if nothing else, though, you can use my scripts and the description I posted above to figure out what the script is doing in concept, and just generate new configs. honestly, looks like that's what it's trying to do there; the part where it says restart config, and then starts going through the interactive kernel configuration is what suggests that.

I would just compile and install your own kernel, making sure you include the drivers you need, and continue from the "git clone https://github.com/notro/fbtft_tools.git" line of that script.

Please note, though, that "compile and install your own kernel" is by no means something that a lot of people do, nor is it something that you can just attempt if you're looking for a plug and play experience. it's slow, complex, and it's easy to end up with a kernel that doesn't work because something that should have been built in is a module or the other way around. I don't lightly suggest you build it yourself, nor do I assume you have or don't have the knowledge to do so, I just don't know what other option you have other than waiting to see if I can figure out a working config.

Also, this is assuming it's breaking where I think it's breaking. it would help if you could upload the entire output, so I can see if it's telling you what it's doing...although I know my scripts (being hastily bashed together) don't provide much feedback at all.

Blip, blop, bloop...
