I am trying to install the RTC module for the raspberry pi.
I think I have followed the instruction from adafruit correctly. I left off both resistors. Then, I hooked it up according to the pinout instructions and when I first booted, I was able to get the 68 in the little table by running i2cdetect to show that the system was recognizing it. However, by the time I went through the rest of the instructions, it was already not working, the system said something about not being able to access the hardware clock. so I ran i2cdetect again and it was not showing up. I tried rebooting, and saw it there again for a moment, then ran it again and it was gone. I have unhooked and rehooked everything into the gpio pins of the rapi with no luck. Now I can't get i2cdetect to recognize it at all. I am using the 5v pin on the rpi as I think the instructions say to do that (they are a little fuzzy in some places).
Any ideas? Has anyone had any trouble with these failing?
