dtoverlay not working
« on: August 06, 2020, 01:46:58 AM »
Hi, I wasn't able to get dtoverlay to work in tinycore. Although the same modification to the config.txt file works in raspbian.

This is what I am trying to add

That overlay does nothing without something monitoring the kernel events.

If you read this,

You will notice it only generates keyboard event.  Almost none of the commands Listed in that help doc will work under piCore, you will have to make a variant of the udev rule to call a shutdown script, or just make a little program to monitor kernel keyboard events.
