For PINE A64 with Ubuntu Focal (stable and nightly) with a 5 MP camera, the documentation states to add camera_type=s5k4ec to /boot/armbianEnv.txt and reboot. After rebooting, the kernel module is not available. modinfo s5k4ec returns: modinfo: ERROR: Module s5k4ec not found.

 

The file /boot/config-5.9.8-sunxi64 shows that only camera sensors OV2640 and MT9V011 are available and CONFIG_VIDEO_S5K4ECGX is not set. Is this an issue with the build?

Not necessarily. https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/config/kernel/linux-sunxi64-current.config

Since the module is not set in the config and also not there the build is okay.

Maybe it got removed some when in the future when trying to get configs more upstream-like. Fell free to provide a PR to enable this module.

Who has a PINE64 with the camera module that was shipped with the crowdfunding version and has it working on Armbian? If you know someone, please ask them to reply here.

 

I would post that on Pine Forums, I expect you would get a much better chance of catching the right person.
