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"
[care of suicidal_orange. Re: python smbus extension? « Reply #5 on: April 20, 2014, 06:04:50]
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.

Thank you Paul for all your efforts
sudo modprobe i2c-dev works and creates my desired /dev/i2c-1 and i2cdecect -y 1 works as well.
Besides of loading i2c-dev manually, Is there an other way to create the /dev/i2c-1 entry?

I am stuck since one week!

sudo modprobe i2c-bcm2835
sudo modprobe i2c-dev
i2cdetect -y 1
And I get always this :
Error: Could not open file `/dev/i2c-1' or `/dev/i2c/1': No such file or directory

When modinfo i2c_dev
filename:       /lib/modules/5.10.77-piCore-v7/kernel/drivers/i2c/i2c-dev.ko.gz
author:         Simon G. Vogl <simon@tk.uni-linz.ac.at>

Is the bus enabled in your config.txt?

I don' make a config.txt file !
To enable the i2c Bus, I saw that this file should contain :
dtparam=i2c_arm=on
Is it right?

Where should I put this file?
I try in  /mnt/mmcblk0p1 but it disapear on reboot!

I would like to access to the wiki but I can't "Permission Denied" with login/password of the forum.

Hi vincenthure
If you mount  mmcblk0p1  you should find it there.

My IMU is now working well
I have one more question :
I can get the data only when I call my program with sudo.
Is it possible to get the data without the admin mode?

Hi vincenthure
You could try adjusting the ownership of  /dev/i2c-1:
Code: [Select]
sudo chown root:staff /dev/i2c-1
