I am working on a project, and I was trying to get the Pi 4 working with an RFM69HCW module. I tried using spidev for this, and read the spidev documentation. I followed the steps but I keep getting this error for my scrip with spidev imported: enter image description here

I am working on a Pi 4 with Python 3 and an Adafruit RFM69HCW radio module. Can someone let me know where I am going wrong?

Thanks, T

    The Pi appears to be irrelevant to the question which makes it off topic.
