i have raspberry pi Type B and i am trying to attach camera into it,

all i have done is upgrading dist and firmware

sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sudo rpi-update

all firmware is updated

now according to what i saw commonly in google i have to execute raspistill

raspistill -v

and this is what i've got

raspistill Camera App v1.3.8

ENOSPC error always showing ,

this is my /etc/modules

w1-gpio pullup=2
#lirc_rpi gpio_out_pin=7

my /etc/modprobe.d/raspi-blacklist.conf

# blacklist spi and i2c by default (many users don't need them)

#blacklist spi-bcm2708
#blacklist i2c-bcm2708

uname -r


i cant figure what is wrong with this error, someone know how to solve it? please help me to solve it.

  • did you run the sudo raspi-config and enable the camera support? (plus reboot) – rob Jul 24 '14 at 14:33
  • i have . still not working – hilmanshini Jul 24 '14 at 14:44
  • can you find someone else with a Pi and try it on theirs or borrow another camera? I have two Pi cameras and both a model A & B and never had a problem getting them working. – rob Jul 25 '14 at 7:55

This might be issue #435 that the camera doesn't play nice with Dallas 1-wire stuff. Elucidation's post (8th Jan) in that ticket is apparently one to look at (seen a couple of reports stating that particular config worked) - your configuration looks very similar, but for the fact that the "blacklist i2c-bcm2708" line is commented out. You might want to try uncommenting that?

Failing that, try commenting out the 1-wire (w1-*) modules in /etc/modules just to see if that makes a difference. If it does, at least you'll know it is the 1-wire/I2C conflict causing the issue.

  • yep it did good for my Pi, but when all complete , pi stuck at capturing camera 0, and it never give me an image, thanks btw – hilmanshini Aug 3 '14 at 17:49
