i’m currently trying to port our existing system from angstrom to the newest debian.
After some initial struggles I got everything up and running on debian lxqt version.
After playing around with it i realized I don’t need a whole bunch of packages preinstalled on lxqt version from http://elinux.org/Beagleboard:BeagleBoneBlack_Debian.
I mainly need c++/java/(node) running on the system, so I decided to go with debian console version and install the missing packages.
This works fine for most of the packages, but it seems like I can’t get the device overlays to work like they do in lxqt:
We use “/dev/mem” with mmap in our code, so I have to setup the device overlays correctly… What I did is:
git clone https://github.com/beagleboard/bb.org-overlays overlays
Which passes without errors.
After a reboot /sys/(…)/slots holds the entries for BB-UART1 like it does in the lxqt version, but it seems like there’s sth. else missing because I can’t get the c++lib to work like before.
Someone has a clue, what I’m missing here?
Is there a document somewhere which describes the differences between lxqt, console and iot?
thx in advance!
