Hi there,

I'm trying to test my Pi 4. and run:

Code: Select all

gpio readall
Oops - unable to determine board type... model: 17


When I use: "gpio -v" I get:

Code: Select all


gpio -v
gpio version: 2.50

Hi.

If you run

Code: Select all

sudo apt update 
sudo apt full-upgrade
it should update wiring pi
or
you could just update wiringpi with

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install wiringpi
