Hey all. I don’t have the code in front of me, but I was using Adafruit’s BeagleBone python library located here (https://github.com/adafruit/adafruit-beaglebone-io-python) for some gpio and pwm work. I was attempting to use port 8 pins 3-6 as some GPIO, however they weren’t working. I tried using “P8_3” and “P8_03” thinking that might be the problem, but it wasn’t. I attempted to modify the demo blink.py to use one of these pins and that also didn’t work. I modified my code to use port 9 pins 11-14 and it worked! I could also blink using those pins.

I have the BBB rev A5A. Is there something that I haven’t read or know about certain pins on port 8? Is there a bug in the library?

Thanks!

I suggest you use this library. https://github.com/alexanderhiam/PyBBIO
