i2c
« on: October 15, 2020, 09:30:35 AM »
OK I am here again and this time I would like some help getting RPi i2c bus working using Python.
I understand I need an extension (I think) that involves i2c tools and smbus. I looked at various searches on this forum for i2c and smbus and it looks like I should have to hand something like "....python-smbus.tcz added to repo"

but the Apps prog does not reveal anything to do with smbus or i2c
 
Any assistance would be gratefully received
BTW I am running piCore 11.0 and Python 3.8 and RPi 1B (2012)

You will likely need to load the i2c-dev kernel module manually.
