I really appreciate that you are taking the time to respond to my post!

Yes, I realise that the kernel is updated and that I would not be able to use your config file so I used the one created from "make menuconfig". I have next to no experience compiling my own kernel which is why I've been trying to work with your scripts and it's likely that I've missed to include some required things in the kernel if they were not mentioned.

Just to make sure:
–Add to drivers/video/Kconfig: source “drivers/video/fbtft/Kconfig”
–Add to drivers/video/Makefile: obj-y += fbtft/

are these lines supposed to be added to the end of the files?

I'm installing this on my Raspberry Pi B+ with kali 1.1.0 and I'm not looking for a plug and play solution. I'm doing this because I want the display to work with kali but I wanna learn and understand how to compile my own kernels and include drivers etc. so if I make it work with the scripts I might be able to go through the instructions and understand what I'm doing.

Someone suggested that I should enable "Patch physical to virtual translations at runtime" when I run "make menuconfig". I'm currently compiling the kernel with that option enabled so hopefully it will work unless I forgot some modules.

Regarding the output, that was the only output. I only omitted the line " ./displaydriver.step2.sh ".
So the script didn't break or crash but waited for input which I had no idea what to enter.

Blip, blop, bloop...
