I have a created a running system on my Beagleboard xM, using Robert
Nelson’s image ‘ubuntu-10.10-r7-minimal-armel’.
I have connected a RTC based on the DS1307 to the I2C port, I can see
the RTC on port I2C-2 address 0x68 using the i2cdetect command. The
only device I can see is /dev/rtc0 which seems to be using the RTC-TWL
driver. I can see a kernel module called rtc-ds1307.ko which if I load
with command ‘sudo modprobe rtc-ds1307’ seems to load OK and I can see
it loaded with the lsmod command. When I check the /dev folder I don’t
see any new rtc devices and hence cannot connect to with my own
program or with hwclock.
Should when I load the kernel module I expect to see a new device in /
dev or am I missing something?
