SPI Device Interface
Hey, I'm pretty new to thus stuff, so I appreciate any help I can get.
I'm trying to get the Le Potato to communicate to some Arduinos using a NRF24L01.
I think I should be able to interface using this RF24 library (https://github.com/nRF24/RF24), but trying the example results in: Unable to open SPI device: No such file or directory
It's looking for the device at /dev/spidev0.0, which doesn't exist.
I started out with the Ubuntu images from Libre Computing, and got frustrated.
So, I tried loading their Raspbian image and using the raspi-config to enable the SPI interface.
...still no luck (after verifying the /boot/config.txt contains dtparam=spi=on, and rebooting)
I took a look at some forum posts that reference device-tree overlays, but I'm really not sure what I'm doing with them.
This one never really seems to come to a usable conclusion:
...maybe I just don't understand what they are talking about.
This one references a new linux source, and I'm not sure how to compile it for Le Potato, and that seems like a lot of effort unless I'm sure it will work:
Again, my goal is just to get this communicating through the NRF24L01 through the SPI interface.
I don't care which OS I use, as long as I can do that... and run a NodeJS server.
If anyone has had any amount of success with this board, I would love to hear how you got there.
Thank you in advance for your responses!
