RPi3

Post by btron » Fri Apr 01, 2016 9:26 pm

So.... I got my first raspberry pi..... I'd been bagging them for years.... Wow what a fluke its the day RPi3 go on sale... so I buy a few of them.. :D At the same time i saw this PiLeven and i just had to buy a few of them as well..... Happy Days!!

BUT.......I've been raging ever since....

FREETRONICS - PLEASE open a fresh can of nerd and help me out....

NO inittab in Jessie (this is not the first time systemd made me look stupid)
and
ttyAMA0 is now bluetooth and ttyS0 serial

so i do this ????
sudo nano /boot/smdline.txt
#remove console=ttyS0,115200 but i didnt see any...

sudo systemctl disable serial-getty@ttyS0.service
#do i turn serial off in the Raspberry Pi set up menu? i tried on and off..

sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/99-PiLevenRPi3-ttyS0-config.rules
#This makes a new empty file.

KERNEL=="ttyS0", ACTION=="add", SYMLINK+="ttyS99", RUN+="/usr/local/sbin/set_pin_alt.py 17 ALT3"
#Enter this and save
Question: Do i make this a different number than 99 so its not over riding anything?

#Next i cut the python script from inside your (install_pileven.sh) and i save it to
/usr/local/sbin/set_pin_alt.py

SO NOW IM OUT OF IDEAS. and i can not load Arduino code to the PiLeven.

PLEASE NOTE THAT IM NOT A HARDCORE LINUX NERD AND I HAD NEVER USED A RPi. SO IN A WAY I SHOULD THANK YOU BECAUSE I WOULD NEVER HAVE DONE THIS IF IT WORKED OUT OF THE BOX....... :D WOW AND PYTHON CANT WAIT TO PLAY WITH THAT....

Great story... but i still cant get these PiLeven to work.... I hope you can help...

Hi btron,

Sorry about the lack of updates for the Pi 3. It's on our list to update but we haven't quite got to it yet. There will be an update soon, I promise.

How to write a business plan and keep customers happy.

1. Fix problems before making and selling more stock.
(More stock due approximately March 23, 2016)

2. Help customers fix problems before they start posting nerd rage on web forum :D

This is not only related to the rp3, because the on version available only the official website is jessie that uses systemd.

btron please share your code. I have been trying here too
I can see to serial board, but the avrdude wont connect.

I have also found this https://downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspb ... s/?C=M;O=D
with all past images. But I am having trouble creating an wheezy sd card.
While jessia sd works perfectly.

Here are some details
