Hello BrechtW,

Which image are you using with your Galileo?

If I'm not mistaken, I believe this library is designed for the eglibc image and it is probably incompatible with the uclibc image. In case you are using the uclibc image I suggest you to reach out to http://www.emutexlabs.com/forum/index EmutexLabs for help in installing this library.

I'm using the image mentioned here (SD-Card Linux Image.zip):

http://www.intel.com/support/galileo/sb/CS-035101.htm http://www.intel.com/support/galileo/sb/CS-035101.htm

I guess it should work, since i'm using Yocto.

Installing on Yocto Linux

If you are using the standard Yocto Linux distribution for Edison or the one for Galileo provided by (/community/makers Intel Makers) then no additional OS preparation is required.

On Yocto, wiring.py can be installed by following step 2 in the previous section.

 

To install the module manually first grab the code from GitHub:

$ curl -O -L http://github.com/emutex/wiring-x86/archive/master.tar.gz http://github.com/emutex/wiring-x86/archive/master.tar.gz

Then install it as follows:

$ tar zxvf master.tar.gz

$ cd wiring-x86-master/

$ sudo python setup.py install

After using either installation method check that the everything went okay

by running the following command. It should have no errors:

$ python -c 'import wiringx86'

I think the issue is that you are probably using the uclibc image, I suggest you to use the eglibc image that can be downloaded from https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/galileo/downloads Intel® Galileo Downloads. But just like in , I would strongly suggest you to use https://github.com/intel-iot-devkit/mraa mraa instead of Wiring-x86 since it is constantly updated and has a lot more features while Wiring-x86 hasn't been updated in around a year.

Peter.
