The current Raspbian kernel supports the SPI drivers, and has done so since at least July, so no need to do anything else.Orly wrote:Hi,
I was in a similar situation to you a week ago. Andrew (the piface designer) pointed me in the right direction, so I will try and do the same for you...
Firstly you need a kernel with support for SPI devices, but a good shortcut to get you up and running, which also has the python module, c libs and some demo software is to download a raspbian image that has been prepared by the piface guys: http://pi.cs.man.ac.uk/download/2012-10 ... iFaced.zip
If you uncompress that, dd it onto a 4GB SD card then have a look in /home/pi/piface you should be up and running in no time.
There is some documentation here which you may find useful:

Hope that helps.
