load device tree overlay through uEnv.txt on startup

Hi,

I want to load a device tree overlay on startup by including it in uEnv.tx like this

#cape_enable=capemgr.enable_partno=BB-BONE-AUDI-02
cape_enable=capemgr.enable_partno=SPI-4SS

It desn’t work as there is another file I need to modify and I forgot where it is.

my image is:
root@beaglebone:~# uname -a
Linux beaglebone 3.8.13-bone67 #1 SMP Wed Sep 24 21:30:03 UTC 2014 armv7l GNU/Linux

Thanks
Jan

OK, found it. It’s here http://elinux.org/Beagleboard:BeagleBoneBlack_Debian#Loading_custom_capes
In case other people have a similar problem.

"Workaround:

add "CAPE=BB-SPI1-01" to /etc/default/capemgr"

The problem is that all that info is all over the places and changes all the time.

“The problem is that all that info is all over the places and changes all the time.”

I’d buy a BBB book to help me get organized and understand how to do things, but I’m afraid that changes would make the book obsolete by the time it arrived in the mail :slight_smile: So I think the only solution is to keep thinking of using the beaglebones as an adventure, and to take lots of notes. It would all be impossible if it weren’t for the forums here – so thanks for your post!
