Over this weekend, I was able to get the blink(1) hardware to work on the Edison.
blink(1) is a multi color USB led. [blink(1) | the USB RGB LED notification light]
blink(1) tools and software : todbot/blink1 · GitHub
*) blink(1) can be turned on, and the various colors can be selected.
*) All of the function that are supported by the blinkraw tool works. (writes directly to /dev/hiddraw* )
What doesn't work:
*) blink-tool - The basic command line tool can't find the device.
What I needed to tweak to make it work:
- Recompile the Yocto kernel to add in support for the hid-thingm module.
