hi!
i am running kstars and ekos on ubuntu jammy, and the indiserver for a toupcam and an ASI guider camera is running on a raspberry pi. the NUC doing ubuntu is connectred via ethernet ro the raspi.
- i start the INDIserver,a dn it connects to the DS 2600 toupcam
- shortly after that, i get the following message:


and no camera is available ...

thing go well, however, when i connect an ASI 1600 MM ... does anyone know this problem. what can i do?

hi!
it is not all that horrible, fortunately - not every USB 3 hub works, but there is trouble sometimes. the zwo asi and the touptek work fine on the raspberry pi4. however, the dongle/focuser issue happens on the NUC and i do not assume that there is a power problem there ...
can it be that the dongle and the falcon are apparently HIDs????

hi!
I have not found anything in the search, so i am asking here:
I have a problem with multiple USB devices .
- if i run a ublox gps dongle and a focuser connected to /dev/usb0, the dongle is autodetected and the focuser is blocked. if i disconnect the dongle, it works
- if i run pegasus falccon rotator and my DS2600 in parallel, the touptek is recognized but i cannot retreive images.
is there a possible explanation for this,or have you experienced something similar?

Hello!
I tried to track down the problem - the crash is on KStars, the indiserver carries on. the last packet i see from kstars being sent to the indiserver is
<setNumberVector device="LX200 Basic" name="EQUATORIAL_EOD_COORD" state="Idle" timeout="60" timestamp="2022-06-28T19:36:27">
<oneNumber name="RA">
15.10083333333333222
</oneNumber>
<oneNumber name="DEC">
-41.799999999999997158
</oneNumber>
</setNumberVector>

the a segfault happens to kstars. a subsequent boot of kstars shows that LX200 is connected and all is fine ...
does anyone have an ide what is going on here?

hi!
i have here controller that can either start an INDI server of it's own, or can be accessed with INDI via TCP/IP or serial.
whenever I connect the LX200 Basic client to my mount controller, KStars crashes with a massive segfault, but the INDI server survives. when startting KStars again, I can connect to the running INDI server and all is fine. Other INDI clients like stellarium do not show this behaviour.

could that be a bug in LX200 Basic???

here is my log ...
