Error with the recent changes to the driver

Wed May 14, 2014 10:15 am

Have you made any important change in the driver internals? The last firmware update has broken the OpenMAX transition from unloaded to idle. After 5 seconds of inactivity with the led turned on, I get an error: OMX_ErrorInsufficientResources.

Using the raspistill I also get an error:

mmal: mmal_vc_component_enable: failed to enable component: ENOSPC
mmal: camera component couldn't be enabled
mmal: main: Failed to create camera component
mmal: Failed to run camera app. Please check for firmware updates

OS: Arch linux

We don't test on Arch, so perhaps the problem is there. Does it go wrong on Raspbian? What GPU split do you have?

Although if it does go wrong on Raspian I would have expected many problems to have been flagged up by others.

/boot/config.txt:
gpu_mem_512=316
gpu_mem_256=128
(I don't have any "gpu_mem" line)

free -h:
total mem: 462MB.

I've not made any change to the rpi (or I think so)

-------

Edit: I've set these values to the /boot/config.txt file as stated here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Raspberry_Pi

cma_lwm=
cma_hwm=
cma_offline_start=

Now it works again...
