Hi would it be possible to give some quick instructions on how to load the MCP79400 python driver onto the Pi? I need to get the MCP79400 up and running as a standard rtc as I layed it out onto a ups/vehicle supply board. I should have checked their was a driver in the kernel first but its done now ...
