Playbox LCD on Linux
#7
Awesome.....

It works.  A few notes for those trying this at home:

a) the DTC compiler will most likely not be on your image:
   sudo apt-get install device-tree-compiler

b) you don't need the DTC compiler.  Since the dtb files are in the boot partition which is FAT32, go to the GitHub page and download it.
    1) click the link, hit the "Raw" and you should get a "Save As" in your browser. 

c) Unless you want to be like me and screw up and re-image, first go into your distribution the normal HDMI way and disable the lines in systemd as mentioned above in first post. Shutdown the OS, take out the memory card and copy the new dtb files in the boot partition.

d) touchscreen does not appear to work.   I'm guessing that this is just a module that isn't yet loaded or compiled.
