Hello,
My rasptank is working fine except the camera. I do not get any camera feed launching the client.py software.
When I do run rapistill on the raspberry itself I do get the output below:

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ raspistill -o test.jpg
mmal: Cannot read camera info, keeping the defaults for OV5647
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)
mmal: Failed to create camera component
mmal: main: Failed to create camera component
mmal: Only 76M of gpu_mem is configured. Try running "sudo raspi-config" and ensure that "memory_split" has a value of 128 or greater
What am I doing wrong?

The SD card is not a newly written SD card. According to the error message, the Raspberry Pi does not allocate enough memory to the GPU so the camera cannot be enabled normally. According to the last line of the error message, it needs to reallocate at least 76M of memory to the GPU.

Thanks for your answer!
It was a new SD card fresh from the box. I followed the raspberry install instructions from the manual.
What do you suggest? A complete new raspberry software installation?
