Hi there,

This is causing me problems with implementing bit
bashed sysfs gpio on armhf (in this case a beagle bone black and
derivative) i.e. type = "linuxgpio"
attempting to configure GPIO line 45 failed with the error message:
"pin must be in the range 0-31"

Many thanks for all your hard work.


The definition HAVE_LINUX_GPIO is used to set PIN_MAX between either 31
(default) or 255, however it is called HAVE_LINUXGPIO in the rest of the


I use a custom config file: lwb-avrdude.conf
id = "keyboard";
desc = "Toby Churchill Ltd. LWB platform, keyboard";
type = "linuxgpio";
reset = ~45;
sck = 2;
mosi = 3;
miso = 5;

call avrdude thus:
avrdude -v -p m32 -C ./lwb-avrdude.conf -c keyboard -e
