Yep, I used that version, the Mac equivalent and many, many other versions! You can see my thread on ALL my issues over here: No serial interface (was Edison stuck in boot loop)
Can you confirm what version you have running on your Edison?
unfortunately no because i dont use intels version currently, may be another forum member can tell you which is really the right one
configure_edison --version gives me 16 as well.
So I did configure_edison --latest-version which gave me 16 as well.
configure_edison --help says for --latest-version: "Gets the latest firmware version". So 16 seems to be correct.
"16" is more recent than "68" as stated in other threads and is the current version.
However, that said: you might not have updated mraa/UPM which you should do if you're using IO natively via mraa/UPM
That is what I thought the most recent version might help with @mhahn. But the issue I'm having seems to be different.
Fishing about for some examples to try and figure out where I'm going wrong I can run Intro to Intel XDK IoT Edition using a Temperature Display : Write the Code! just fine which uses mraa. But using demo scripts from johnny-five (such as https://github.com/rwaldron/johnny-five/blob/af10c0dfb2e700fa499a44da2c4ca4366b275bee/eg/lcd-i2c.js) which is using the intel-iot driver JHD1313M1 (i think that's what it's called anyway) to try and run the LCD give me an error message:
