[solved] Repeated start in smbus (i2c)

It seems that Raspberry Pi doesn’t do repeated start command in it’s I2C communication out of the box. I was having problem with a device (extra sensor) that required combined (repeated start) mode operation to work.
Does someone have a solution for this problem? I am looking for a solution that will work together with the rest of the Navio sensors (and software).

Are you sure repeated starts don’t work? I used it for the past few years, even submitted a few fixes for it a few years ago. What sensor are you trying to use and what happens when you use it?
Also - for this particular issue the raspberry pi forums might be a better place to get an answer.

Thank you jeanleflambeur, I found the solution (as you suggested) in the RPI forum
