[RESOLVED] Importing pySerial problems

  • Hello, I'm encountering the following error message when trying to run --
    import serial -- in a Python script (I have installed pyserial):

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/serial/init.py", line 29, in <module>from serial.serialposix import Serial, PosixPollSerial, VTIMESerial # noqa
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/serial/serialposix.py", line 58, in <module> import array
    ImportError: Error relocating /usr/lib/python2.7/lib-dynload/array.so: _PySlice_Unpack: symbol not found

    I have no problems communicating to an Arduino through the Omega's command line (or screen commands), I would now like to starting running scripts to communicate to the Arduino.

    Any help in this is greatly appreciated,

  • I've resolved the problem by performing a factory reset on the Omega2+ (ver: 0.1.10 b160) and then installing the full version of Python2.7 (not the light version) and PySerial, all works well now.
