Tinker board GPIO on Armbian custom kernel

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone :)


I've compiled my own kernel using this awesome tool, and I'm now running it on a tinker board.

Everything's been working fine, except for one annoying thing I just ran into: I can't use the GPIO pins.


When I try to use a pin in python I just get this message back: "RuntimeError: This gpio is set to other function!".


If I run Debian I can use the gpio just fine, but I need some kernel modules that doesn't ship with Debian. That's why I've compiled my own armbian kernel.


Anyways, any idea on how to fix this? Any special module I should add when compiling the kernel?


Thanks :)
