INDI Library v2.0.0 Released (01 Feb 2023)

Bi-monthly release with major changes to INDI properties and client API in addition to new drivers and improvements.

Fli cfw-2-8 FilterWheel

yeah that should be fine... I'm not sure. The log doesn't show much except that it cannot detect the filter wheel. Perhaps next step is to contact FLI about this since we are using their SDK to communicate with the filter/camera.

The wheel works properly if I use Windows and ASCOM drivers with APT or if I use Maxim DL, but it is unusable with INDI. What can I do to resolve this issue????

Hi Jasem, as for the wheel in question, I can say that Windows recognizes it as ardware after installing the FLI driver but it works and is recognized as a wheel by itself after installing this ascom.

I would need teamviewer access in order to send FLI some userful information. Please send me a private message if you can spare the time.

Thanks Jasem, I am now at work, in about 6 hours I will be at home and I will be able to attach the telescope to the Rasberry. As soon as I have everything ready I will send you id and password for remote access.
Best regards Giosi

Was there any resolution to this? I am having a similar problem connecting my FLI CFW-2-7. It is visible in lsusb, and the logs indicate that it is connecting, but there is an unexpected null parameter message followed by a segfault.

Please contact FLI support to raise this issue. As soon as their library is fixed, we will rebuild the driver against the fixed version.

FLI has posted a link to an updated Linux SDK on their downloads page. I found it necessary to make one small change to their Makefile in order to compile the code under Ubuntu-18.04LTS. Is this the update needed to address the issues reported previously in this thread?

Link: www.flicamera.com/downloads/sdk/fliusb-linux-kernel-4.18.tar.gz

In the Makefile, I changed line 15 from
$(MAKE) -C $(KDIR) SUBDIRS=$(PWD) modules
to
$(MAKE) -C $(KDIR) KBUILD_EXTMOD=$(PWD) modules
