LedBorg with Raspberry Pi v2


At the moment the current LedBorg instructions will install a version of WiringPi2-Python which is unable to control the GPIO pins.

If you follow these instructions you can manually build a copy which can drive the GPIO pins:
cd ~
git clone https://github.com/Gadgetoid/WiringPi2-Python.git
cd WiringPi2-Python
rm -r WiringPi
git clone git://git.drogon.net/wiringPi
mv wiringPi WiringPi
cd WiringPi
sudo ./build
cd ..
sudo python setup.py install

After this the normal scripts should be able to control the LedBorg again.

There is a problem however, using the PWM control seems to result in the LED flickering at present.
This seems to be a problem with the system usleep command.
The command is meant to wait for a specified time, but it seems to be waiting too long!
See http://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=684221#p684221

We are hoping that either the usleep command gets fixed soon, or somebody provides a workaround.
