I'm completely new to hardware in general. I just got a raspberry pi and was messing around trying to get an LED to light up.
I have everything wired like the picture below. I am using a 330ohm resister, which I believe is bigger therefore ok then what is required.
also (sorry this is my first time using any program to draw a circuit)
The program runs successfully, but no light comes on. I know the LED is good as I've tested it on the arduino. Anybody care to explain my wiring fault?
root@raspberrypi:/home/pi# cat test.py #!/usr/bin/python import RPi.GPIO as GPIO GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BOARD) GPIO.setup(11, GPIO.OUT) GPIO.output(11, True)
Changing to GPIO pin 0 results
Traceback (most recent call last): File "test.py", line 5, in <module> GPIO.setup(0, GPIO.OUT) RPi.GPIO.InvalidChannelException: The channel sent is invalid on a Raspberry Pi root@raspberrypi:/home/pi#
