sorry to ask: why not using the blink led sample in the Arduino IDE?
and: why not starting with the built-in LED to make sure it's nothing wrong with your LED?
The point is not to use the arduino side of the board.
I can make the led light up by using GPIO in shell or by using the mraa library in C.
So my LED is working fine. But thanks for your advice.
I am still blocked with this issue.
I have the same here with my Edison.
Installed MRAA and tried the sample code provided by the XDK IoT edition.
I'm unable to get an LED blink or drive an GPIO pin.
Have you made any progress on this issue?
I think it's not the same. pierre.collet mentioned that he has mraa running fine - it's an issue with a specific Arduino lib for him.
On your issue:
- I suppose you do have the Arduino breakout board? the mini breakout board doesn't have a built-in LED
- can you first try mraa natively? - you may try the python script mraa/blink-io8.py at master · intel-iot-devkit/mraa · GitHub; just replace x = mraa.Gpio(8) by x = mraa.Gpio(13) to have the build in LED blink
