Re: How do I get I2C0 to work on the CSI connector?

WOOHOO!

That did the trick.

I have a Pi 2 and I think I may have become confused with the pin assignments by looking at Rev1 schematics and GPIO layouts.

Thank you for your explanations and clarifications.

John

Re: How do I get I2C0 to work on the CSI connector?

6by9, I was under the impression that the I2C lines of the CSI are GPIO 0&1. Are you suggesting that Alt0 assigns GPIO 28&29 to the CSI for I2C0? If so, how do I go about changing GPIO 28&29. I'm not sure on how to create an overlay and I have'nt found any reference on using RPi.GPIO to assign pins ...

How do I get I2C0 to work on the CSI connector?

I'm wishing to use the I2C bus that is on the CSI (camera) connector to drive a LCD display. (I know I can cascade i2c modules on the i2c1 bus, but I want to be differnt.) I have made up an interface cable, using a camera flat cable, and taken the SDA and SCL (plus 3.3v & Gnd) wires out to a level c...

Re: DietPi | Minimal Raspbian. Optional "ready to run" softw

Joe, I recommend "Master Commander" (mc) as a file manager. sudo apt-get install mc It has a look and feel of the MSDOS "Norton Commander" (If you are old enough and can remember back that far). I have trouble remembering paths and commands when looking around for filers etc and mc gives me a visual...

Don't worry about it.
I re-loaded the image and did a fresh install.
On boot up it updated to V95 and everything then fell into place.

Thanks for everything.

John

Re: DietPi | Minimal Raspbian. Optional "ready to run" softw

It may be just me but I've just downloaded and installed the Jessie version of DietPi on a RPi 2. The initial setup seemed to go well and I selected some additional software from the "Additional Software Menu". I like using Midnight Commander as a file manager because I can't remember the paths to v...

Re: CAN controller

Hi skpang, Could you list the steps you went through to get the PiCAN working with Jessie? I've just bought a RPi2 and intend to use a CAN module like this one:- http://hacktronics.co.in/home/1253-mcp2515-can-bus-module-tja1050-receivers-spi-protocol.html (This site has a circuit diagram of the modu...
