Brian created a new topic ' ASI EAF not recognized in Nightly' in the forum. 6 months ago

About two weeks ago I noticed my ASI EAF no longer was being loaded in Ekos in the latest (at that time) nightly version.  I have stable versions that I revert to when these things crop up so this is more just to alert those developing the software.  Since then I have kept up with the updates of Kstars and the various indi libraries and drivers that are made available. So far my focuser still doesn't show up in Ekos.

Jo, (El Corazan)  mentioned in another thread his filter wheel had disappeard recently after an update and noticed the nightly version 99-asi.rules in the rules.d folder was missing the first line. After editing it back, his filter wheel was loading again.  I was also missing that first line, edited it back but it seems to not have changed anything in my case.  

The 99-asi.rules file from the stable version of Kstars (March 1 2021) appears as below:

ACTION=="add", ATTR{idVendor}=="03c3", RUN+="/bin/sh -c '/bin/echo 256 >/sys/module/usbcore/parameters/usbfs_memory_mb'"

# All ASI Cameras and filter wheels

SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="03c3", MODE="0666" 

The 99-asi.rules file from the nightly version is missing that first line.  I'm not sure this is significant but thought I would mention it.

The log file is attached below, it looks pretty normal to me but I'm no developer, maybe someone can spot something.
