SPI in Jessie Lite

Sun Jan 22, 2017 12:44 pm

Hello all,

Maybe I miss something easy here, but I can't find how to enable SPI on Jessie Lite.
In raspi-config I don't see SPI in Advanced options (also no SSH, I2C,...)

Do you know how to enable SPI in Jessie Lite ?

Thank you.

Add a line to /boot/config.txt

Code: Select all

dtparam=spi=on
All of my raspberries have

Code: Select all

dtparam=audio=on
dtparam=spi=on
dtparam=i2c_arm=on
the one with the 1-wire sensor has

Code: Select all

dtoverlay=w1-gpio

SPI is under Interfacing Options on raspi-config.

Thank you.
Do I have to do it in addition to raspi-config or it is the same thing?

Correct!! I think the documentation should be updated here:
https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentati ... -config.md

There's a link at the bottom of that page where you can report that and suggest/make changes
See this tool's source at github.com/RPi-Distro/raspi-config, where you can open issues and create pull requests.
