Only one SD card image available, it works on all RPi boards. Download location:

Bela,

I did not try this yet with this beta that you just posted,  I was typing this as you locked the other thread......

I was testing the userspace binaries after I packed them.   I wanted to play with loading and removing overlays after boot.

Code: [Select]
tc@piCorePlayer:/mnt/mmcblk0p1/overlays$ sudo dtoverlay -a -v -d /mnt/mmcblk0p1/overlays
run_cmd: mount -t configfs none '/config/device-tree'
mount: mount point /config/device-tree does not exist
* Failed to mount configfs - 2
tc@piCorePlayer:/mnt/mmcblk0p1/overlays$ sudo mkdir /config/device-tree
tc@piCorePlayer:/mnt/mmcblk0p1/overlays$ sudo dtoverlay -a -v -d /mnt/mmcblk0p1/overlays
* configfs overlays folder not found - incompatible kernel

found very little with a quick google search....but found references to mounting the configfs manually

Code: [Select]
sudo mount -t configfs none /sys/kernel/config
sudo dtoverlay -a -d /mnt/mmcblk0p1/overlays
<list of all overlays is printed>

dtoverlay now runs, but does not show any overlays loaded.

Try beta5 and the current VC set.

I pulled the vc tonight to pack, so it should line up with the kernel you pulled.   So I'll give it a test tomorrow. 

The other vc binaries I tested worked fine.

same result...but I did some reading on the rpi web site, and seems that while the utilities may exist, it may be premature to be doing that.

"short write", you ran out of space.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Did you expand the mmcblk0p2 partition as decribed in README?
