Hi Jo,

In my experience it is enough to keep the current nightly/devel of indi, and only downgrade the version of libasi. Haven't yet tested my filter wheel, though - will do later today.

256MB should be enough for the ASI183MC, no?  Nevertheless, I tried with both 512 and 1024, no change there.  Crashes with both.  It does take a while though:  The image is downloaded and displayed, and only some 3s later I get the crash message which states
Child process 14326 died

This may be interesting too:

Compiled from git two days ago (sdk 1.17) Opensuse Tumbleweed, ASI1600mm-pro

Picture size:   4656 x 3522       driver-crash      Edit: 4656 x 3520
Picture size:   3880 x 3520       driver-crash
Picture size:   3879 x 3520       no crash!

So, reduzing the picture size a bit let the crash dissapeare

Did you go back to a larger picture size again and ascertain that the crash still occurred?

Maybe the first instance was not surprising, the sensor of the ASI1600 measures only 4656 x 3520 pixels, so you added an extra 9312 pixels that are not addressed.

Sorry for the first instance, it was a type mismatch. I corrected it.
Yes, I went back to larger picture sizes an the driver crashed

256MB should be enough. However, for testing, it's worth increasing if you hear that they've been doing something with buffers.

Please confirm that everything is fine for the newest INDI / INDI-3rdParty builds with the old library.

I was able to get set up tonight, so thought I would try a quite recent build. Kstars crash, as others have reported. Here is the backtrace:

I can confirm that, same here.  Reducing the FOV of my ASI183 to 3672x3672 prevents it from crashing!  But already at 4000 it starts crashing again, so no workable solution.

FWIW, I also tried using a USB2 cable to connect.  But no difference to USB3.

So a crash in the driver led to a crash in KStars. I can look into the one in KStars, but not sure about the ASI. does ./asi_camera_test causes a crash as well?

I did not try asi_camera_test, but will when I set up again.

Should we revert to the previous SDK version? If this SDK version is buggy, I suggest we revert until the issue is address by ZWO.

That might be advisable. I reverted to a copy of the build I had from March 19, and it worked great for the rest of the night last night.

running `git diff c882e29822f6b692a6d6db2e48e99cab88ac31a5 .` it looks like the previous version of the Camera SDK was 1.16.3. The EAF and EFW were updated on the 19th.
I think we can leave those alone and only change the camera version. Thoughts?
