:-(

Is there any way to revert to an older QHY driver while we wait for the fix?

I just emailed QHY to see if they have an ETA for the fix. If it will take them a while, then I will revert to QHYSDK 5.1.0

So if I was impatient, could I download and run the install script from 5.1.0 on the qhy website www.qhyccd.com/file/repository/latestSof...yccd_V20190628_0.tgz to revert back in advance ? [on my Odroid-N2]

Thanks

[EDIT:} WELL I TRIED THIS AND IT DIDN'T WORK. In fact I messed things up a fair amount by fiddling.

Sharing Jerry's impatiance ;-) ...

Or is it possible to (re)install indilib 1.8.0 and use it with Kstars 3.3.6? If yes where to get the .deb file of 1.8.0? (my /var/cache/apt/archives only contains indillib 1.8.1)

Many thanks, Hans.

I also updated the 85-qhyccd.rules file.. does this help? Looks like QHY is still working on the QHY5 issue.

FYI If the updated 85-qhyccd.rules file is in KStars build: Build: 2019-09-22T09:43:47Z (I didn't check) then it did not help my config (Odroid-N2).

Thanks

Can you try this attached file? Unplug and replug the camera afterwards.

replaced the Sept 13th version of /lib/udev/rules.d with this one. Unplugged and replugged -> no qhy camera detected.
rebooted, and tried again. This time the qhy camera appears in the Indi Control Panel as a device, but it is yellow rather than green (connected).
I will fiddle a bit.

So I rebooted a 2nd time, and low and behold it was there connected (green). I was able to take both a Nikon primary camera test, and a QHY5IIM test image. Will try to break it now, by further dummy image tests. :)
