BPI-P2 Zero Python DHT

Any tips on reading a GPIO temperature sensor using up to date software on the BPI-P2 Zero?

I’m getting errors running 2020-04-28-raspbian-stretch using Adafruit_Python_DHT and Adafruit-Circuitpython-DHT.

The fork here: How to use DHT Sensor via banana pi gives the error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./AdafruitDHT.py", line 41, in <module>
    humidity, temperature = Adafruit_DHT.read_retry(sensor, pin)

RuntimeError: Error accessing GPIO. Make sure program is run as root with sudo!

The others seem to not recognize the board.
