Dave,

Would you be willing to explain the steps on how you got it working? I have been logging temperatures with my RPi for a few years now, and last night my Pi died on me. I already had my Pine64 lying around, so I figured I'd have it take over temperature probe duty. I've not really got into the kernel modification scene, so I am having trouble following this thread. I just want to get my DS18B20 probes working again, but I need to figure out how to get the w1-gpio module loaded on the Pine.

Thanks!

You need to decompile the DTS, apply the following patch to it, and recompile the DTS.

(This is mainly due to the fact that longsleep didn't merged that PR yet)

Will you please point me at a thread that might explain what that means and how I would go about doing it? I have no problem following instructions if they are available, but I can't find any good results on this forum when searching for "decompile DTS."

Thanks!

Nevermind, I think I figured it out based on something I read in a thread called "Is SPI Working?" One of your responses to be precise Smile. I just had to figure out that I needed to install device-tree-compiler to get the dtc binary.

So I de- and re-compiled the device tree with that patch included, but I still don't understand where to get the w1-gpio and w1-therm kernel modules. Are those Pi specific modules that I'm going to need to pull over? Or do I need to rebuild my kernel somehow with those included?

Thanks, and sorry I'm being such a newb. Kernel hacking just isn't my thing.

First, check if you have the w1-gpio.ko and w1_therm.ko modules in your kernel /lib/modules tree.
If not, you would have to compile a new kernel with the following flag :

CONFIG_W1=m
CONFIG_W1_MASTER_GPIO=m
CONFIG_W1_SLAVE_THERM=m

Maybe longsleep should enable them by default in his builds.

The issue that I was facing is a discrepancy in DTS that I've not seen in other ARM boards but only on Pine64, but after doing kernel debugging, I've found a simple workaround in DTS.
Mainly, here it is :
Code:
               onewire_device@0 {
                       compatible = "w1-gpio";
                       gpio = <0x30 0x2 0x8 0x0>;
//                      gpios = <0x30 0x2 0x8 0x0 0x0 0x0 0x0>;
                       pinctrl-names = "default";
                       pinctrl-0 = <0xba>;
                       status = "okay";
               };

The issue is when using "gpios = <0x30 0x2 0x8 0x0>;", the DT parser give out this error : "arguments longer than property", it seems that plural "gpios" means you need to provide multiple gpios, not only one. Removing the "s" seems to do identical job with a single gpio.

I am trying to get my DS18B20 to work with my pine.
I have the following
Kernel : 3.10.104-1-pine64-longsleep
lsmod: w1_gpio                12739  0
           wire                   23744  1 w1_gpio

I see w1_master_driver in /sys/bus/w1/devices

I have power on pin 1, Data on pin 7 and ground on pin 6. From the chart here -> http://joey.hazlett.us/pine64/pine64_pins.html

I have tested this temp sensor on two different Raspberry pi boards, pi 2 and a pi 3. And it works on both using the same pin numbers. I have read over this thread and i don't know what i am missing.

Any pointers on how i can get this to work?

You should also see w1_therm while doing lsusb.
You should not only see w1_master_driver in /sys/bus/w1/devices, but also devices such 28-000005a2fac5
Do you have a 4K7 Pull-Up on the data line ?

ok i did a modprobe w1_therm and now have that in lsmod

wire            23744    2 w1_gpio,w1_therm

i don't see any more entries like 28-000005a2fac5 under /sys/bus/w1/devices/. (i know it should be a unique device id for the sensor)  I do have a 4k Pull-Up as this is how i got it to work with the Raspberry pi. Do i need something else besides the kernel? Are there other things that need to be executed while booting?

I'm using a fedora beta release i found here on the forum with the longsleep kernel. What version are you using? I can give that a try.

Thanks

You don't need to do modprobe, it should comes automatically.
Check you DTS again, use "gpios = <0x30 0x2 0x8 0x0 0x0 0x0 0x0>;", recompile the DTB, reboot, and recheck.
Otherwise, it must be a wiring problem.
