I am glad to announce that the new https://github.com/matrix-io/matrix-creator-hal release will be supporting:
- Direct Mode: As the usual form to access to the MATRIX Devices through /dev/spidev/
- Kernel Modules: Acces the MATRIX Devices with matrixio-kernel-modules.
Now, it is available to install the kernel modules from Debian repository, just follow:
# Add repo and key curl https://apt.matrix.one/doc/apt-key.gpg | sudo apt-key add - echo "deb https://apt.matrix.one/raspbian $(lsb_release -sc) main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/matrixlabs.list # Update packages and install sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade # Reboot in case of Kernel Updates sudo reboot # Installation MATRIX Packages sudo apt install matrixio-kernel-modules # Reboot sudo reboot
We made several changes in the library:
1- Add the kernel and direct mode access:
2- Rename the WishboneBus to MatrixIOBus:
3- Check the demos directory and see how the last changes should be used.
We are deploying it now. Let us know if someone has any doubt or trouble with these changes. So, if someone has an own application, please try to update to this changes and avoid any compatibility issue.
