I have purchased the SATA HAT without the top board and I would like to install the minimum software on my Pi in order to have the sata ports accessible. I have my own fan running on PWN_33 so this port should also not be accessed, I don’t want any extra services controlling the GPIO pins.
I looked in the install script and it seems there are basically 5 functions called
apt_check --> installs any missing python3 packages (and few others) pip_install --> installs the screen software (Adafruit SSD1306) pig_install --> install piggpio v77, used to control GPIO pins deb_install --> installs the raspi-sata-0.14.deb package dtb_enable --> not exactly sure what this does
Which sections are needed to get access to the SATA ports? It seems to me that perhaps only the deb_install section would be needed, is this correct?
