2008-12-13 17:46:13     Using PPI

Hi

 

I need receive a image from sensor connected on PPI. I was reading the docs and I understand that I need recompile the kernel with the PPI function... is it? are there no others ways?

 

 

 

Thanks the help

if it's a standard censor, then you should use the camera framework

I read this page....  It teaches reconfigure kernel... and I need recompile it, it isn't?

 

I would other way, without recompile the kernel.... Is it possible? Or I need recompile kernel to enable the ppi?

 

thanks the help...

i really dont know what you're asking.  you need to compile the kernel to do anything useful.

I've uClinux working in my board. Is possible enable ppi in this board, WITHOUT recompile the kernel? Only add files and/or change configs...

you can probably build it as a module, but your kernel sources need to match the running kernel.  you might as well rebuild the tree.

Why do you want to avoid building a custom kernel?  It's really the best thing to do, and fairly easy.
