[solved] Kernel 4.9 misses bcm2835-v4l2 module

Postby crashmaster » Sat Feb 25, 2017 1:57 pm

Older kernels have this module included. It creates '/dev/video0' device to get motion with the rpi camera working.

I think, it's only not configured in Archlinux. See also this:

Thanks and greets,

That;s because it was causing kernel panics.
