Raspian Noobs rpi-update breaks Rio Install

5 years 8 months ago #29530093 by Guy
Running
sudo rpi-update
on a working PI and RIO breaks the installation as of 22/01/2015 using the latest version of NOOBS.
If the update is not run the installation works, when it is run and restarted you get this error:
Starting script rioboard_d
ERROR: could not insert 'spi_bcm2708': No such device 
chown: cannot access '/dev/spidev0.*' : No such file or directory

Could somebody please look into this.

Also, will there ever be a RIO-IO card that will fit on a Raspberry B+??

Regards

Guy

I have this error without doing rpi-update. I have a new RPi B (not the +) with the latest NOOBS installation.
How can I get my RIO board working now?

I fixed this by enabling SPI in raspi-config. Now I have no errors when running "service rioboard_d start", but the process never actually starts ...

I finally fixed it. I had to manually install libwiringPi from wiringpi.com/download-and-install/ (the latest version from git.drogon.net)
I then had to make a symbolic link:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libwiringPi.so /usr/lib/libwiringPi.so.1

Now it finally works!
