Raspberry Pi Camera Module - Linux


Hello all

I have installed kali linux on a Raspberry Pi with a camera module installed.

http://www.raspberrypi.org/camera

As I am using Kali Linux, obviously I do not (believe to) have the raspi-config to configure the pi. Not sure about the driver either.

I have tried a few things, to no avail.

Does anyone have a clue on how to get this operational?

thanks

Reading the camera documentation it mentions that the config utility does specific things to the GPU in order to enable the firmware etc.

Did you try a different SD card with Raspbian installed first to get the camera working initially? Then you could look at the relevant camera source code on github and have a go at compiling it yourself under Kali.
