Thank you, Robert!  And I confirmed I can connect to at least one of my pieces.  I'll try the rest tonight.

Hi. I am confused as to the current status of what is fully fixed and available. For me, building from latest GitHub on Ubuntu 20.10 amd64 still has at least the Pegasus drivers broken. Reviewing this thread there are conflicting statuses. In somer instances the problems are pegged to bad packages, but building from source supposedly works (not my experience); other entries point to possible C++ inheritance issues (so building wouldn't fix that).

Can Jasem or other knowledgeable individual please recap the current status and whether those of us still out-of-luck should be looking for a source update from which to compile a working version or if it is best to look to nightly builds.

Just to confirm that I am building properly on Ubuntu 20.10 amd64, my steps are:
  1. Make sure environment is up-to-date (sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade -y)
  2. Install all required build pre-requisites as well as ccache
  3. Then perform the following (completing the set of operations for each package before proceeding to the next package):
    1. Clone (or pull latest) master branches from the following links:
      1. indi: github.com/indilib/indi.git
      2. indi-3rdparty: github.com/indilib/indi-3rdparty.git
      3. kstars: github.com/KDE/kstars.git
    2. cmake options:
      1. indi: cmake -DCCACHE_SUPPORT=ON -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug "$SRCROOT/indi"
      2. 3rdparty-library: cmake -DCCACHE_SUPPORT=ON -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug -DBUILD_LIBS=1 "$SRCROOT/indi-3rdparty"
      3. 3rdparty-drivers: cmake -DCCACHE_SUPPORT=ON -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug -DWITH_FXLOAD=1 "$SRCROOT/indi-3rdparty"
      4. kstars: cmake -DCCACHE_SUPPORT=ON -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo "$SRCROOT/kstars"
    3. make -j $NCPU
    4. sudo make install
Any info or insights appreciated.

The stable packages are only available now for 18.04 and 20.04. If Pegasus drivers are broken, please open an issue at INDI Github to follow up with it.

Hi. Still have some issues. I used my rig last on 24 April - everything was working fine using QHYIII178M guide and QHY294MM.
Now I try and no camera recognised. If I swap the QHY294 to ZWO294 then partially works but guide camera comes up then goes down repeatedly:2021-05-08T16:22:01 QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is offline.2021-05-08T16:22:01 Guider port from QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is ready.2021-05-08T16:22:01 QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is online.2021-05-08T16:22:00 QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is offline.2021-05-08T16:22:00 Guider port from QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is ready.2021-05-08T16:22:00 QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is online.2021-05-08T16:21:58 QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is offline.2021-05-08T16:21:58 Guider port from QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is ready.2021-05-08T16:21:58 QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is online.2021-05-08T16:21:57 QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is offline.2021-05-08T16:21:57 Guider port from QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is ready.2021-05-08T16:21:57 QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is online.2021-05-08T16:21:55 QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is offline.

Same issue if I connect QHY294MMOS: VERSION="18.04.5 LTS (Bionic Beaver)"
Latest (stable) updates of kstars (06 May I think).
Tried with Ubuntu 20.04 but even worse will not see any QHY camera. 
Maybe it is hardware /USB issue ?
All cameras connected through 12v powered USB3 hub. 
 ??

Ok. Added separate cable for EFW. Seems to all work if I start drivers manually. Will lookout for updates and see if that fixes things.

Fixed. Seems it was a bad sdcard/corrupt filesystem. Rebuilt and applied updates - back working. Sorry folks.
