+LTS/SOPINE PINE64 5 MEGAPIXEL CAMERA MODULE
#1
Ciao,
 I open this thread to try to clarify, especially to me, how to have the camera module working on pine64 with armbian; the request comes from days spent on forums, github, google,  without finding satisfaction. 

my configuration is as follows: 
$ uname -a
Linux libra 3.10.107-pine64 #33 SMP PREEMPT Wed Sep 19 13:03:51 CEST 2018 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux

$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description:    Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS
Release:        16.04
Codename:       xenial

$ lsmod | grep video
videobuf2_dma_contig    20341  1 vfe_v4l2
videobuf2_memops       12600  1 videobuf2_dma_contig
videobuf2_core         39274  1 vfe_v4l2


camera is this one: 
https://www.pine64.org/?product=himax-5-...era-module

of course i tried this one: https://github.com/avafinger/pine64_camera
but i'm stuck at this point 
  • rename in SD card: [sdcard]/BOOT/pine64/sun50i-a64-pine64-plus.dtb to [sdcard]/BOOT/pine64/sun50i-a64-pine64-plus.dtb_no_camera
 since i don't have boot/pine64 but boot/dtb/ then the *.dtb 
I'm also don't sure about i got this module s5k4ec. How can i check ? 

I hope I have put enough information, if not please ask me. 
A thousand thanks to anyone who wants to spend time

I am not sure if re-opening this post makes sense, but I am also trying to get the camera module to work with the latest armbian to no avail.
Things seem to have changed too much since 2016 and therefore the various links and hacks posted around are not really useful anymore.

My Pine64 is running kernel 5.4.20-sunxi64, but I can't find any s5k4ec kernel module anywhere. Also upstream it seems that there is no such module. The closest one is s5k4ecgx, but it may just be something else.


Any hint as of how to get the camera module running with a 5.x kernel?
