Re: Raspberry 3 - Unable to locate package python-rpi.gpio

I found it by using pip install RPi.GPIO. Unfortunately it doesn't work under Devuan. When you try to import from python you get an error stating that the software only runs on a Raspberry Pi.

Is there a way to access the GPIO pins on a Devuan O/S? Under other linuxes it is simply a case of typing:

echo X > /sys/class/gpio/export

and this creates the directory tree from which you can read or write to the pins using /sys/class/gpioX value. Unfortunately this appears not to work under Devuan on a RPi 3B+.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.
