VMP400 3.5 inch screen + raspberry pi 3B+ with Volumio


I tried using the VMP400 3.5 inch display on a Raspberry Pi 3B+ and the Volumio version of Linux. I installed the driver software specified in the Velleman documentation. The raspberry pi rebooted and stalled out with the last line reading…

End kernel panic - not syncing: No working init found. Try passing init= option to kernal

I’m assuming an incompatibility between the Velleman driver and The Volumio version of Linux. Any suggestions?
