WiringPi

It seems that WiringPi doesn't work with the RPi 4b 8GB.

Code: [Select]
ubuntu@rpi4b:~$ sudo gpio readall
Oops - unable to determine board type... model: 17
ubuntu@rpi4b:~$

Just a quick post to let you know that you?ll need a new wiringPi for the Raspberry Pi 4B.

To upgrade:

cd /tmp
wget https://project-downloads.drogon.net/wiringpi-latest.deb
sudo dpkg -i wiringpi-latest.deb

Check with:

gpio -v

and make sure it?s version 2.52. I?ll push the updated sources shortly.

It will hopefully be part of the official release soon, but for now this will do.

Unfortunately for me this update is for the 32 bit RPi OS.  :-\


ubuntu@rpi4b:~$ sudo dpkg -i wiringpi-latest.deb
dpkg: error processing archive wiringpi-latest.deb (--install):
 package architecture (armhf) does not match system (arm64)
Errors were encountered while processing:

After contacting Godon about my 64 bit WiringPi issue there doesn't seem to be a path to a solution. I have no interest developing for 32 bits under Linux any more so I'm going cease support for the ScriptBasic WiringPi extension module.

I hope to find a replacement in the future.

I think I may have found a replacement for WiringPi. I'm not sure if it will compile on 64 bit OSs but sounds promising. I'll update this thread when I have time to give it a try.
