CSI interface Driver Problem

Question

Hello,

Unfortunately as I read from forums mainline kernel has no driver for gc2035 and v4l2 driver.

I have tried Armbian_5_65 and Armbian_5_59 debian stretch but they are not contains these drivers and eventually modprobe command fails.

 

As I understand, I have 2 different solutions to run camera on my system;

1- Going back to legacy build.

But I do not know how to go back the legacy build which is last supporter these drivers.

2- Installing required drivers. (Also I want to prefer this solution because going back to legacy build may cause some bugs)

How can I install required drivers to mainline stable build and where can I find them ?

 

I am a very very newcomer to this side. This is my very first experiment about Orange pi, soc and armbian OS.

Finally, I have Orange Pİ Plus 2e and CSI interface camera. I need to run this device with current hardware.

 

Thanks in advance.

if the required drivers for mainline would exist... we would already pack them with our images.. so you've to go back to the 3.4 kernel. Either by starting with with a legacy image e.g. with a xenial: https://dl.armbian.com/orangepiplus2e/Ubuntu_xenial_default_desktop.7z

Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

I have tried legacy kernel. But unfortunately the problem mentioned at the link below occurs. (/dev/video is not appears)

 

 

People in this link has overcome with trying 5.20 jessie release.

 

Where can I get 5.20 jessie release ? I have not found in archive directory of download page. Is it possible build this specific kernel(3.4.112) from git repository ?

Downgrading via "apt-get install linux-image-sun8i=5.20"  command had not work.

 

Thank in advance @chwe

I have tried this solution before but result is same.

When I test my camera with motion sw; I face with "UNABLE TO OPEN VIDEO DEVICE" with a gray background. Like below;

gc2035, vfe_v4l2, v4l2loopback drivers loads with no problem but I haven't got any result.

Also I tried fswebcam sw and I get the message below;
 

--- Opening /dev/video0...
Trying source module v4l2...
/dev/video0 opened.
No input was specified, using the first.
Unable to find a compatible palette format.

I found a post which is succeeded about running camera with gc2035 and v4l2 drivers on orange pi plus 2e. Link is below (look at 2. post).

http://www.orangepi.org/orangepibbsen/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=2578

 

But he tried in 5.20 jessie release. I've search everywhere about 5.20 jessie kernel but unfortunately I can't find.

 

I want to try 5.20 jessie kernel for OPi+2e in my last chance. Could you please help me about this image.

 

Thank in advance @chwe
