New Raspberry Pi 3B+s may cause Pioreactor software to be unresponsive

There is a problem in one of our dependent libraries that is causing the Pioreactor to become unresponsive when using the latest RPi 3B+s (see issue here). We’ll have a release+fix shortly! Follow this thread please!

EDIT: this is now fixed in all software

Here’s a temporary fix for those with knowledge of SSHing:

  1. On the command line, run
sudo pip3 install --upgrade adafruit-blinka adafruit-platformdetect
  1. Restart your Pioreactor.

The latest images from the docs / software pages should have the new library. All is well. Let me know if there are any future problems!
