how to use CAN interface with dietpi

ive used raspbian and could recieve can messages with the following setup http://skpang.co.uk/blog/archives/1220 (the python installation doesnt matter for my question) this works fine on raspbian, however when i try this with dietPI i’m not able to recieve any messages. Any help?

Please try it the following way:

  • Install Python3 pip via dietpi-software install 130
  • Then install can via: pip3 install -U python-can

dtoverlay=spi-bcm2835-overlay that line has no effect as that overlay does not exist (anymore). Not sure what it was required for, probably there is a more recent guide than this >5 years old one?
