root@pine64:/home/debian/Documents/guvcview_2.0.4-master#
a simple touch install-sh got me past cannot find error. i would suggest you might go ahead and include that file in your package. anyway as you can see my horror has proceeded to some syntax errors which i'll leave for someone else to fix. this package is reallyappreciated by me since without there would be absolutely no way in hell to use the camera but i have spent about 1 hour past time allocated to the install. if you figure out the syntax issue let me know thanks.

This instructions are for the Guvcview 2.0.2, please use git clone https://github.com/avafinger/guvcview.git instead.
no, i have been using the 2.0.4 page you have been pointing to and now you want me to go to 2.0.2.1 ? that is confusing. why point to a 2.0.4 page up to this point and then point to 2.0.2-1 page?

Sorry if i caused confusion. Will try to clear the mess:

Install all dependencies first!

INSTRUCTIONS for guvcview 2.0.2.1 (done on Ubuntu Xenial, adjust to your Debian)

git clone https://github.com/avafinger/guvcview.git
cd guvcview
./bootstrap.sh
./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-yuyv --disable-sdl2
make
sudo make install


INSTRUCTIONS for guvcview 2.0.4 (done on Ubuntu Xenial, adjust to your Debian)

git clone https://github.com/avafinger/guvcview_2.0.4.git
cd guvcview_2.0.4/
./bootstrap.sh
./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-sdl2
make
sudo make install


Edit /etc/modules and the lines:
# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
#
# This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded
# at boot time, one per line. Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.
s5k4ec
vfe_v4l2

Reboot! (with the sensor attached)


The state of the S5K4EC driver is as is, very basic and needs documentation to get in better shape. I am busy with another driver and already fixed many things and i can say it works really nice, if i can't get the info needed for the S5K4EC i will focus only on that driver, good news soon and good luck.

Hello!

Just wanted to say thank you to everyone here. I managed to get my camera to work with all of these instructions. I'm using it with motion and it works great (except the quality of the picture).

WARNING

These instructions DO NOT work on the debian image.  The ./bootstrap.sh script is coded to call ./configure without the right parms...  also, the autoreconf fails with symbols errors ( recommends m4_pattern_allow ) and even though most dependencies are installed, the ./bootstrap.sh script fails / and the build fails.  

Several of the listed dependencies in these instructions above do not load on debian because the dependencies are broken without remedy !   ( i'm using the lennyraposo debian 102 mate image with updates )

I suspect the build will succeed on Ubuntu, but have not tested it...

I followed both the 2.0.2.1 and the 2.0.4 instructions to the letter without success/ 

Builder beware. 

PS  I was able to get /dev/video0 and all drivers loaded without error,  but the compile from sources was not possible.   This clearly needs more work.

Funny thing that, as I am using the Ubuntu image and I was able to compile the software get the kernel modules in place correctly, I believe. But I never got /dev/video0. I wrote it off to my general lack of Linux expertise, but it seems at this point just as likely that I, along with most everyone else, just need to be patient while the talented folks iron out the kinks.

Thank you, that is precisely what we are doing, as I type, actually...   @lex has written up a completely new set of build instructions;  a couple of us are testing now with new images, and the results will be available sometime this weekend (be working on it again tomorrow).

Thanks for your patience and positive attitude; it helps a lot, and soon the kinks will be behind us.

Can someone please add build package of guvcview to a PPA? Then I don't have to install build tools.

Is it correct that for Ubuntu Yakkety all will be fine? See https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/guvcview which offers 2.0.4. Does that also do /configure --prefix=/usr --disable-sdl2 and ddit /etc/modules so no problem will arise for PINE64?
