Can't find pinephone pro camera in terminal
#1
Hello everyone,
I recently got my pinephone pro and have had fun trying the different os's available and I've setteled with latest modian posh, I found that in every os that everything is working but the camera isn't working. I checked the dip switches and even turned it on and off, then I started to look in terminal using the sudo lshw command and I can see everything else but the camera or their title OV5640. Am I doing something wrong or do I have hardware issue, I have been looking through the forum but can't find anyone with the same issue.
Any suggestion would be greate

There are no drivers yet for either camera. Your experience is exactly what is to be expected.
  • ROCKPro64 v2.1 2GB, 16Gb eMMC for rootfs, SX8200Pro 512GB NVMe for /home, HDMI video & sound, Bluetooth keyboard & mouse. Arch (5.16 kernel, Openbox desktop) for general purpose daily PC.
  • PinePhone Pro Explorer Edittion, Tow-boot on SPI, Arch/phosh on eMMC
  • PinePhone BraveHeart now v1.2b 3/32Gb, daily driver: Tow-boot with Arch/Phosh on eMMC

That make a lot of sense, my skills at coding go as far as "hello world" on a html page, I have people who may be able to help me create one and I was wondering what information I should gather and take to them to get the ball rolling on creating a driver.

The basic part numbers of the cameras are in the wiki.

The developers (so far) hang out on the various IRC channels  (there are Matrix/Telegram etc bridges) where real techy questions can be answered. There is also an unlisted developer specific channel (if your folk make suitable noises on the general Pinephone channel highly likely they will get an invite). Folks there can more accurately explain what does and does not exist so far.

{ I happen to have stumbled across it and do stalk there, mainly as I am in absolute awe of the folks doing the heavy lifting! I coded Fortran around 1975 and project managed software development in another life: I find today's open source tools & co-operations completely mind blowing - and have no real way of thanking the various PinePhone (and Linux and Phosh and ...) developers enough! }

Fingers crossed I can get something created
