Entron Camera cannot be executed using sample_camera_gmsl

**Hardware Platform: DRIVE AGX Xavier™ Developer Kit
**Software Version: DRIVE Software 10
**Host Machine Version: native Ubuntu 18.04
**SDK Manager Version:

Once I connected ENTRON F008A1200BM0A 8 MP camera and tried running in the target using the ./sample_camera_gmsl - It seems like there is a problem and throws this error:

But the sample works fine for the Sekonix camera that comes with the kit. Any workaround to make it detect ? Do this target support entron cameras?

Hi @bkumar1,

I think you are talking about F008A120BM0A instead of F008A1200BM0A, right?

You can find the camera module (F008A120BM0A) in the camera table in https://developer.nvidia.com/drive/ecosystem-hw-sw. For its support on DRIVE Software 10.0, the contact is still Entron. So it won’t just work out-of-the-box and you still need to get a specific software package from Entron for DRIVE Software 10.0.

For the upcoming release, it will be supported natively and then you don’t need to get any software package.
