    I'm not having ANY luck at all with the 160503 release on ANY of the Debian releases for Beaglebone Black and my Ancho. Is anyone else?

    What's more, I can't find a distribution that uses the 4.1.18-ti-r53 kernel that's cited in the Salsa Suite New Release Summary.

    I get the same errors:

    oot@ancho-41:~/FlatEarth/Demos/Ancho/RadarDemo# ./RadarDemo
    ERROR 0x301: Unknown chip - NVA6201 - NVA6201 Chip Not Found
    at: NVA6201_InitChip in src/chip/NVA6201/NVA6201.c:128
    from: NVA_OpenRadar in src/Radarlib3.c:414

    I can run 160503 just fine on Wheezy, though, which is 3.18-based.

    To see if the overlay loaded successfully, type "dmesg | grep cape". There should be an entry FE-Ancho present if the overlay loaded.

    I tested on Debian "Jessie" 4.1.18-ti-r53, and the RadarDemo program works fine on my system.

    I can get the same error message if I delete my overlay files and reboot, so this is probably related to the overlay.

    There is a folder /root/FlatEarth/Utilities/ModuleSwitcher. Run the ModuleSwitcher program to install the overlay. You will need to reboot the BBB afterwards.

    That proved to be the solution: make sure to run ModuleSwitcher once after installation. Thanks!
