How to enable spidev0.0

Thomas MuellerThomas Mueller Posts: 3New Member

I'm on
Linux ubilinux 4.4.0-ubi3-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.4.13-1 (2016-06-17) x86_64 GNU/Linux

Problem is I cannot get spidev0.0 to work. Seems that the module was loaded on boot, but I cannot see it in "/dev/".

Is there any trick I can do?
By the way... Spidev2.0 is available from boot.

Thx and greetings.

    On UP, you need to use /dev/spidev2.0. It will give you access to the SPI pins on the HAT header. It is equivalent to /dev/spidev0.0 on Raspberry Pi.

    OK, sorry for my stupid question.

    Sometimes I should just try things instead of asking such questions ;-)

    It's working great with using spidev2.0.

    Thanks for your answer!
