Follow up with a similar camera issue when executing sudo python3 server.py.

pi@raspberrypi:~/Adeept_PiCar-B/server $ sudo killallpython3
python3: no process found
pi@raspberrypi:~/Adeept_PiCar-B/server $ sudo python3server.py
mmal: mmal_vc_component_create: failed to create component'vc.ril.camera' (1:ENOMEM)
mmal: mmal_component_create_core: could not create component'vc.ril.camera' (1)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File"/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/picamera/camera.py", line 456, in_init_camera
    self._camera =mo.MMALCamera()
  File"/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/picamera/mmalobj.py", line 2279, in__init__
    super(MMALCamera,self).__init__()
  File"/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/picamera/mmalobj.py", line 633, in__init__
   prefix="Failed to create MMAL component %s" %self.component_type)
  File"/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/picamera/exc.py", line 184, inmmal_check
    raisePiCameraMMALError(status, prefix)
picamera.exc.PiCameraMMALError: Failed to create MMALcomponent b'vc.ril.camera': Out of memory

During handling of the above exception, another exceptionoccurred:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File"server.py", line 692, in <module>
    camera =picamera.PiCamera()              #Camerainitialization
  File"/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/picamera/camera.py", line 431, in __init__
   self._init_camera(camera_num, stereo_mode, stereo_decimate)
  File"/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/picamera/camera.py", line 460, in_init_camera
    "Camera isnot enabled. Try running 'sudo raspi-config' "
picamera.exc.PiCameraError: Camera is not enabled. Tryrunning 'sudo raspi-config' and ensure that the camera has been enabled.

Camera was enabled. What needs to be done to correct this issue? In a response to the previous Camera issue, it was stated to change "Adeept.PiCar-B" to "adeept.PiCar-b".  Please explain the reason for this preposed change to folder name.

2. check whether there's start_x=1 in /boot/config.txt, see whether it is commented out

Hi,
I have same error. Please check if you get the same error if you test your camera with the standard rasping command: "raspistill -o image.jpg"
(see thread "Out of Memory..")
Maybe you have better luck than me.

Hi, probably you made the same error as I -> I had the camera connector inserted into the terminal connector instead of the camera one
