[SOLVED] Enable SPI
I have been trying to get a zigbee module to interface with the UPboard over SPI for some time.
I've had success across USB using the pySerial library and I am trying to convert my code to be used on SPI with the MRAA library and I have the error: "Spi bus can not be initialized".
I think my problem may be that the module is not enabled in the kernel as /dev/spidev0.0 does not appear. I've followed the instructions on the wiki page as well as the correction found here: https://forum.up-community.org/discussion/comment/8488#Comment_8488.
Before I start digging around the kernel I wanted to see if I've exhausted all my options to make spidev appear.
dev = mraa.Spi(0)
ValueError: Error initialising SPI bus
