  1. so the csi camera is now working in mainline kernel? woow The device tree stuff is implemented,csi, i2c and clock are supported? as to this vfe_v4l2 driver, this confuses me too, i think it originates from qualcomm. (video front end), rather complicated. mainline uses the videobuf2 interface, so drivers need to be modified, i guess.
  2. orange pi 4g-iot, This board looks interesting :-) MT6737. might do a cell-phone with it. or Osmocom ? existing smartphones are based on that chip . Would be a nice devel platform,...
  3. Hi Going, Siberian province sounds nice ! ;-)
  4. Hi jiapei100, yes i should have named it "sun4i_csi" so one can easier clone it under .../drivers/media/video/sun4i_sci... and yes you shall have an allwinner/lemaker based kernel sourcecode on your Bananapi with its uImage being booted. Last week i checked this one and it works: https://github.com/nisenbeck/linux-bananapi unfortunate i found no armbian kernel on github, but this works with patches only i guess. Under /lib/modules/.. you find the module tree for each kernel that ever resided on your system. So..install: goto cd .../drivers/media/video/ , rm -r sun4i_csi to remove the whole driver. git clone https://github.com/xenpac/OV5640-Sunxi-A20.git now u have this "ov5640-sunxi-a20" directory under video. rename it: mv ov5640-sunxi-a20 sun4i_csi goback to your source root: make modules make modules_install reboot if you specified ov5640 as default camera in your fex file you are all set, else you have to modprobe the right one. i used "guvcview" app for testing which worked fair, cheese did not. another good test app is "qv4l2", apt-get install qv4l2 ! though video output is slow but controls work exact. in the "docu" directory there are some scripts to easy change your camera device and also a "vt" commandline tool that also outputs video. the other camera drivers in "device" are all ov5640 with some different setups, read first line in file. i will update some changes shortly.
  5. Does that mean it also stops all the updating? So you just compile your changes locally?
  6. Just as a thought....if to integrate that into mainline..... is there any CSI support in mainline? (if not, we put it right into the Cam driver. as no one else is using CSI-0 and 1). plus supporting videobuf2. I think the Clock module is there as well as the I2C. ps. just wonder what other chips have compatible CSI port ???
  7. Hi ?Alex Yes, kernel version is 3.4.112, i guess (not having it on desk) actual source code was: https://github.com/LeMaker/linux-sunxi It seems the CSI driver did not change over the last years. If u check it out, disable the DEBUG output in the source files (forgot that) addendum: the device driver files are all for ov5640, but different setups: - ov5640.c = standard the others have features like autofocus, crobbing, scaling. so just to be be able to easy switch to explore features. In ..docu/ there is a util "vt" to measure framerate with no output and also set resolutions.
  8. i worked on the BPI M1 Board (the first one) for quite a while now improving or more or less rewriting the A20 CSI camera driver. there are no more artifact-ghost-frames any more. The framerate goes from 5fps(full) to 120fps(crobbed small) i also modified the camera-device driver for the ov5640. disadvantage: existing camera device drivers would not be compatible any more. maybe someone wants to give it a try and check it out. it can be found here: https://github.com/xenpac/OV5640-Sunxi-A20
  9. I have tried to get a grip on device trees.......it is so chucking complicated. I wish we had a standardized BIOS for all ARM Hardware. ! ? ...
  10. Is there a way to just compile the modified driver resulting in a .ko file, so i can substitute it on the target? with make? this is just for testing...
  11. happy new year :-) almost actually i just want to work on a driver code and just compile that to get a .ko file. Using the script "compile.sh" AND CREATE_PATCHES="no" will create a patch from my changes....and will apply it? but i already changed the source code? sounds complicated.
  12. Hi, my name is Tom and i am an embedded developer. I am aiming to dig into the CSI0 camera interface for the bananapi. Admittedly, i am new to the linux way of coding and compilation. Thus far for armbian, i realized,... ....compilation by script "compile.sh"...which checks all needed tools, code, updates...downloads everything...runs a config screen to select target, platform, ...and yeah..it works. When i run the script two times ...it keeps compiling again. hmm+ My experience is, that i do have the sourcecode, a compiler script/makefile....and it will just update the changes i did on the source. (old scool:-) so if i have the source in a directory local on the computer (after a one time compile with compile.sh), .. then modifying the code..if i run compile.sh again, will it overwrite my changes by downloading again? Also i do see "patches". So patches (diff files to the original source files) are ?? uploaded to the git...and ?? will be applied during the compilation?? As you can tell, linux devel-newbi:-) So..how do i work on the sourcecode locally on my computer...ie. run the compiler, and finally supply "patches" then when i found a solution? Please give me a little guideline on local development the armbian source. (quick and easy...not long) regards Tom
  13. Well Hello Armbians, ( i just joined today, was on BPI before) Actually the original Wallpaper isnt that bad. My personal opinion, i dont like the standard linux penguin animal motive. The universe...well, sdcards..no. i like #29 pretty well. (high-rise buildings with electronics) reduce text to just- Armbian ARM-Linux
