No DMA platform data..

Max posted Oct 31, 09:50:

Hello !
On this morning, after some huge struggle (24h hours to figure out i forgot the blank space in the folder names), i finally got my samplerbox to work, with the Pi 3 nude (usb keyboard and usb storage only).
Now, i'v plugged the switch and the display, and the pi doesn't boot propperly anymore, all i get is this line :
[8.669431] uart-pl011 3f201000 .uart: no DMA platform data

Any idea how to solve this ?

I unplugged everything, except a HDMI screen, and i keep getting this error, despite the fact i remounted thé image on the sd.
That is very frustrating, because it worked fine, and this error seems to come from nowhere.
Please help !

I wanted to change the configuration (to test if the error came from that), like said in FAQ#17, and i can't find the file and directory given in the answer, neither by exploring my SD in windows or by typing the command line directly in Samplerbox.
I'm getting a bit nervous about this project. :(

The very old Image from 2015 works fine for me but the new image 20161114 gives me the same message and of course NO SOUND :-( how can it be this works for other People? isn't Raspberry Pi = Raspberry Pi ?
I'm using Pi 2B as well Pi 3 both the same

WOW got it work. Using a MIDI Interface instead of the GPIO INPUT.
BUT why the old Version works but the new Images not? Is the GPIO Serial Input disabled now?
