Arducam 64MP and Raspberry Pi Kernel 6 (revisited)

Over a week after my first post and I was still without a working 64mp camera. The old method of running a script to install drivers still reported the same error, and the entry that used to be in my /boot/config.txt file wasn’t helping.


I went back to look at the arducam forums and came across this post and found that when they went from the custom kernel module install to the standard module install they’ve changed from using an underscore to a hyphen:


Now after booting, my camera is correctly recognized. The delay and lack of obvious information on their site has been frustrating, but at least I’m up and working and shouldn’t need to do anything special with further apt updates.
