raspistill -n option throws error

Sat May 18, 2013 12:44 pm

I am trying to disable the preview using the -n option but this throws:
mmal: Unknown status error
mmal: main: Failed to connect camera to preview

raspistill works fine as long as I show the preview and I can also set the preview size via the -p option - so is there something that I have to do to mute the preview?

This has already been covered in other posts. See any that refer to preview
