Hi Mark,

Again, many thanks for your speedy response and support, it’s very much appreciated!

To answer your questions;

I do have just 1 i2c-dev.h (I did use “find” to search the entire file-system), ls -l

-rw-r–r– 1 root root 2612 Dec 3 2018 /usr/include/linux/i2c-dev.h

Interestingly, and I think related, is this post,, As can be seen from the “ls -l”, i2c-dev.h with “Raspbian Buster” is 2612 in size, the download you suggest is 11507!

$ dpkg -l libi2c-dev

I followed your re-compile instructions, and THAT WORKED! many thanks.

I have a suspicion / intuition, that this issue is related to the “Rasbian Buster” build / install, PLEASE let us know what you find?

Again, many thanks!

Blip, blop, bloop…
