Using an Alternative LCD for BBB?

Hello i live in Brazil and i saw the prices for the LCD Capes and they are just way too high for a hobbyst, with tax + transportation the 7’ price will be around R$ 1.000,00 or $ 500,00 USD.

What is a good choice for me? How can i know if a given LCD display is compatible with BBB? If there is a device driver for it in Angstrom or any other distro?

First, I would see what LCDs you can buy locally that meet your needs.

Send the datasheet to me and I will look to see if it might work.

Design a board that plugs into the BBB that interfaces the LCD.
