I’m glad to see you’re still fighting! We’re working in the background to try and work out your Beaglebone Green issue with CANbus, but moving over to a more capable device might be a good step anyway.
So to this issue, you can use our special configurable variables to set DT Overlays:
This page gives some guidance for the overlay you’re trying to use:
Hope this helps. Keep going, we’ll get you sorted!
Thank you very much Alexandru! A little more help here.
So the PR has three file changes:
Seems ok I’m just not sure if I should name my dtbo file 2xmcp2517fd or mcp2517fd. Should this be defined by how it is named in the raspberry kernel system?
Is straight forward
About my patch file, should it have prefix 0001, 0009 or something else?
Concerning the content of the patch file, the diff is extracted from where? A quick search lead me here but I can’t find arch/arm/boot/dts/overlays/Makefile path
I use raspberry pi 3 model B maybe not the correct branch?
Also I have located 2xMCP2517FD.dtbo and 2xMCP2517FD-overlay.dts files here, should I add these files somehow of are they already located in raspberry os (not balena os).
Sorry for the noob questions first time trying to figure these out! Hopefully I will soon be able to contribute more independently!
