rtc problem

by alfiesty on Mon Feb 10, 2014 8:52 pm

I installed the ds1307 per instructions in the Adafruit tutorial and "hwclock -r" worked. However when I try to run the script on github I get the message "device or resource busy". Is this normal and how do I get around it if it is.

If hwclock -r worked, then you have attached the ds1307 to the system as an RTC. That's why the python script reports it as being busy.
