I'm having some problems with GPIO and SPI. I've been trying to get 2.4ghz comms working with little success so far. I've hit a problem with my receiving pi where the SPI drivers report an error: FATAL: Module spi-2708 not found in directory /lib/modules/4.9.59-v7+
At some point the /dev/spidev0..0 and spider0.1 directories have become corrupt. I've tried every way to recreate these character files I can find googles for but I just bump into this error over and over. I can't copy them, I either get 'null' cannot copy file, or File is too large errors.
Is it possible to manually force a reinstall of the GPIO and SPI stuff?
I can format the sd and start from scratch again if I really need to, but I don't want to.
