Getting started with rpi serial and BitWizard expansion boards

Each of the following needs to be expanded. Please add a line or two if you can.

  • get raspian
  • comment out the two lines in /etc/modprobe.d/raspi-blacklist.conf
  • get bw_rpi_tools
  • compile bw_rpi_tools
  • get rpi-update
  • run rpi-update
  • reboot
  • for the spi version, run
 sudo bw_rpi_tools/bw_spi/bw_lcd -t "hello world" 
  • for the i2c version run
 sudo modprobe i2c-dev
 sudo bw_rpi_tools/bw_i2c_lcd/bw_i2c_lcd -t "hello world"

(the sample assumes the LCD and displays a text on it. )
