    If you're running ubilinux, we have included a modified version of RPi.GPIO for UP. It's pre-installed.

    We don't have plans to package this for other distros at this time.

    What distro are you currently using on UP?

    You might be able to take the ubilinux package manually from here and install it on your distro:

    Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
    >>> import RPi.GPIO

    File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
