Description

Having i2c and spi would allow for addition of sensors, like an temperature sensor for the trailer.

It's unclear if this is in the kernel rev I'm using for PiBox. This issue will track research into adding support for these two buses.

  1. http://www.bootc.net/archives/2012/05/19/i2c-and-the-raspberry-pi/
    1. This suggests using BCM2708 support, which is already compiled as module in PiBox's kernel
  2. find /lib/modules/uname -r/kernel -name "*bcm*" shows both an i2c and spi driver. Both modules load without error. So now I just need a way to test them.
