It does the same with htc dream.

Here is a log of the crash:

So the java.lang.NullPointerException seems to come from:
D/Camera ( 383): app passed NULL surface
which seems to come from the lack of the camera libs.

#2

Updated by Paul Kocialkowski over 10 years ago

With the non-free camera libs, it fails but for another reason:
E/AndroidRuntime( 407): FATAL EXCEPTION: GLThread 11
E/AndroidRuntime( 407): java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: No configs match configSpec

W/ActivityManager( 155): Force finishing activity com.android.camera/.Camera
D/dalvikvm( 155): GC_EXPLICIT freed 9786 objects / 498400 bytes in 211ms

The way to fix that is to set on res/values/config.xml of the Camera app:
<bool name="softwareGLOnly">true</bool>

(note that the fix should not be applied in packages/apps/Camera but in vendor/cyanogen/overlay/dream_sapphire/packages/apps/Camera and vendor/cyanogen/overlay/passion/packages/apps/Camera

I am getting this on the Galaxy S Replicant 2.3 00003 images too. I think this is a general problem with the app when there is no camera support available.

Well, that seems to be a pretty standard behaviour when there is no camera available. What we could do to improve the situation is to set the BOARD variable that says the device has no camera when we have no support for it, so that it does just like in the emulator.

I'll keep the ticket open as a reminder to do that on the concerned devices (Nexus One and HTC Dream).
Galaxy S will have Camera working in ICS and probably in GB as well as the Nexus S over the next releases.

Replicant 2.2 is not developed anymore.

If someone wants to fix it the bug can be reopened.
