Sopine baseboard CSI port camera not work
Hi everyone,

I'm working on a project on SOPine with its Baseboard Model A. 

Currently, I want to do some test on the 5MPixel CMOS Camera module bought from the PINE store. But I can't make the camera work(I'm using Xenial Mate OS), I plug the camera in the CSI port and successfully modprobe the s5k4ec and vfe_v4l2 driver, still can't work in both g-streamer pipeline and guvcview app.

Later I found there may be a power issue by probing the CSI port, and I checked the schematic of the baseboard, seems like the power to the CSI port is disabled by default, and the power is managed by the "AXP803" PMIC. I tried to reconfigure the AXP803 to enable the power to the CSI port but I can't detect any i2c device by using the i2ctools, seems the A64 is using a private RSB to control the PMIC.

I'm pretty new to the PINE, so I may miss something. Does anyone know how to enable the CSI port on the baseboard Model A to make the camera work? Thanks in advance. Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin
Hi olivaw and welcome Smile

I expect that it's Ayufan's Xenial. Maybe you can try it on mainline images like Archlinux.

If you will have still issues, I highly recommend you to come to PINE64 IRC or Discord and ask help there Smile .

I've had success with armbian xeniall. install cheese (the photobooth app) and the camera works.

it also works in ayufan's android7.1

The port and camera from pine64 does physically work I can confirm. I have the model A rev B baseboard and revC sopines.
