Inconsolata is available from CTAN and included with TeX Live, you can
use tlmgr to install it.
However, the manual is not complete yet.
For the time being, you can do the following:
* make sure you are running luatex 0.51 or above
* get luaotfload from githup, install it and use the supplied
'mkluatexfontdb.lua' script to build font names database
* then fontspec should be able to find system and TEXMF fonts
