    maaxboard with waveshare rs485 hat


      Hello there,


      recently got a few maaxboards with waveshare rs485 hats (https://www.waveshare.com/wiki/RS485_CAN_HAT ) for a school project but i cannot seem to get them to play nice with each other.


      I connected the board and ran the command:

      ifconfig -a</p>

      but unfortunatly it doesn't recognize the hat.


      I've been told i need to create a new dtb overlay but i have no idea where to start with that...


      I also tried to use the mcp2515-can0.dtbo from the rpi 3b+ (on which the hat does work) and edited the uEnv.txt by adding:



      could someone help me out with this?


      kind regards,
