SPI python module OnionSpi doesn't work.
I'm trying to use SPI python module onionSpi (C lib. libonionspi) in order to connect with a tft display. I following the steps in this tutorial https://docs.onion.io/omega2-docs/spi-python-module.html but at device registration spi.checkDevice() an error occured for missing kernel module "Failed to find spi-gpio-custom. Maybe it is a built in module ?" Opkg return that there is no such module in the repo.
opkg install spi-gpio-custom
Unknown package 'spi-gpio-custom'.
- opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package spi-gpio-custom.
I also tryed to install spi-gpio-driver but no luck :(
opkg install spi-gpio-driver
Unknown package 'spi-gpio-driver'.
- opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package spi-gpio-driver.
Does this mean that I have to compile spi-gpio-driver from source?
I've had the exact same problem trying to use the SPI module in Python. I'm honestly a bit disappointed with the Omega2 so far. It feels like there's been lots of missing forethought. Cmon, Onion, I'm rooting for you guys, but I can't if these things aren't made right :/
It may or may not be the issue you are both having, but just in case check out my post https://community.onion.io/topic/1356/some-reminders-hints-about-using-opkg
I've had the same issue in the latest firmware
Has anyone managed to make it work ?
