RFM69 Supported on RPi Serial gateway?
Just a quickie, does anyone know if the Raspberry Pi Serial gateway works with the RFM69 yet ? I had it working with the NRF24 previously and now that I'm looking to move to RFM69's it would be nice if I could essentially swap out the radio and have it all work with limited changes (within reason obviously).
The only thing I've found on this is support in 2.2.0 beta, check these PR's:
(don't know why there's two of them but one seems to be merged)
I've been waiting for this to build my system on rfm69's ...hopefully one day soon (tm) I will have the time to test it
Yea I've seen those 2 PR's also.
I've even tried tekkas transportUpdate branch to see if anything on that bleeding edge is working with the RFM69. I ran into build failures when trying to make the Mysgw binary with the define
-DMY_RFM69_NEW_DRIVERincluded to use the new RFM69 driver. Using the old driver I got closer to it building but still failed due to the chip select define SS not being set.
I know this stuff is all very WIP and not expected to work, but still nice to tinker and see if I can get anywhere with it.
regarding the new rfm69 driver, for the moment i think you'll need to wait a little bit, perhaps not so much, because it will break compatibility with older nodes.
Ah ok, well I'm very excited to see this area improve, hopefully this v2.2.0 beta is aiming for a release in the near future and is able to include the new driver and linux gateway improvements.
I'll wait patiently for now
