PRU UART Debian 8.6

Hi, I have found setting the pru uart pins P9_17 and P9_18 to mode 5 does not work using config-pins with the latest release Debian 8.6.
The overlays I used in Debian 7.9 no longer work. I have found that the overlay used to disable the hdmi, univ-emmc-00A0.dtbo does
not include the pru_uart option for P9_17 and P9_18, whereas cape-universal does. So I copied the entries for P9-17 & -18 over to
univ-emmc, recompiled and copied to /lib/firmware which seems to solve the problem. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

Did you expect someone to do all the work for you ? But yes, I’ve experienced the same thing. So “free” as in beer, open sourced software. You get what you pay for. If you need something more, then it’s up to you to do that for yourself. Or pay someone else to do it for you.

Anyway, sorry if that “stings” but hey, it’s pretty much the truth. People have lives of their own and contribute what they can, when they can. But I would assume most people are pretty busy doing stuff for people who actually pay them. A lot of the time.

I agree with you William Hermans ! That how it works here !

I only recently added support for the PRU peripherals. Your problem
stems from the fact that I do not have a univ-emmc cape in my original repo:

https://github.com/cdsteinkuehler/beaglebone-universal-io

...so the univ-emmc overlay didn't get updated when the changes were
merged into the official BB overlay repo:

https://github.com/beagleboard/bb.org-overlays

...and it's likely the other univ-* capes have the same problem (the
cape-univ* files exist in my original repo and should be OK).

I'm sure Robert Nelson would appreciate a PR!
