I've just received two Core modules with Battery & Base module and few others today. Unfortunately I'm not able to get Core modules to work. I've seen the tutorial from your documentation although it doesn't help me in this case.
I've tried to connect previously used Bridge module (from Alpha set) and it works. When I run dmesg it shows following messages when Brigde is connected:
[ 968.077470] hid-generic 0003:0403:6030.0003: hidraw2: USB HID v1.11 Device [FTDI FT260] on usb-0000:00:14.0-1/input0
[ 968.082148] hid-generic 0003:0403:6030.0004: hidraw3: USB HID v1.11 Device [FTDI FT260] on usb-0000:00:14.0-1/input1
Although no such messages are shown when I connect any of the Core modules. Do I need to do something beforehand?
Core modules seemed to be working, LED blinks when pressing the Boot button.
Some info about my computer (I didn't used RPi for this first attempt, just my regular laptop):
$ cat /proc/version
Linux version 4.4.0-57-generic (buildd@lgw01-54) (gcc version 5.4.0 20160609 (Ubuntu 5.4.0-6ubuntu1~16.04.4) ) #78-Ubuntu SMP Fri Dec 9 23:50:32 UTC 2016
Tomorrow I will try to connect it to my RPi when I have some free time…
Thanks for any clue about what could be wrong…
