I am running a NEO right now and I have a led flashing on and off using this - I cannot however figure out how to get the I2c running - I suspect something is missing. Not everyone wants to build music centres and so access to hardware as easy as it is on the real Pi would be a godsend.
Hi Pete,

I'll take a look at getting this compiled. But, we will need end users to test as I have no skills in soldering and GPIO in general. Programmer != engineer, in my case anyway lol :)

I've created a Git Ticket here, will try and take a look tomorrow, but i'll let you know when its ready for testing: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/563.
If you find our project or support useful, then we’d really appreciate it if you’d consider contributing to the project however you can.
