@Pete
Not sure if the is a temporary solution for you, but if you have a laptop running Linux it's easy to build the whole works from the ground up. On an old i3 it took us less than an hour.
Instructions here:

Hi everyone
Working OK with the latest git:

~/Projects/indi$ git log
commit e5494e1c868720e1aa6451b74ab2c6aaba3bb831

~/Projects/indi-3rdparty$ git log
commit b77182ffc13372446d855bc8f42859648ad1793e

~/Projects/kstars$ git log
commit 286aea8cf8ad1a1981d2c6a404489bb0a23b2c6e

So you don't have to build everything, as well as the latest kstars, I tested with the stable kstars and the indi from git. Still worked OK.

Hi
Not just a pi issue. This is with Ubuntu 20.04 on a Dell laptop. Same symptoms. The connection sometimes works, sometimes doesn't.

eqmod only. All other hardware connects fine first time..

To find the indi version just issue: indiserver

Rather, I think it was introduced by the latest INDI, Previously, all devices connected without issue.

Unfortunately, the workaround mentioned here:
indilib.org/support/tutorials/157-persis...al-port-mapping.html
doesn't work.

My workaround is currently to plug in the usb cables one at a time -the mount must be the first connected- and hit connect for each device on the indi control panel. This is the only reliable way I can connect our eq6. Not elegant, but may help rescue a session.

If the devs need anything testing or if we could revert this section of the code to the stable version immediately before 3.5.3, please don't hesitate to ask.
Cheers and clear skies,
Steve

Hi everyone
I want a 15 pixel dither on EKOS' internal guider using SEP multistar.

Guide telescope: 240mm focal length
Guide camera: 3.75 micron pixels

Imaging telescope: 420mm focal length
Imaging camera: 4.3 micron pixels

Question: what value do I enter into EKOS' guide option for 'Dither'?

TIA,
Steve

Hi Pit, everyone

FWIW and as Hy asked, it's working OK with the simulator from git a few days ago:
kstars: be4c957b6e971acac17f325fcac796e20e864cfe
indi: 3b4d0fe80c821bd1241e1dc801550dcd6f19d097

Logs attached.
Try the latest git?

Anyway, HTH and clear skies,
Steve

Hi
OK. Even easier: both stable and git kstars build and run against the latest indi from git.
Cheers

Thanks for the message.
OK. So I can't build the git against the stable indi libraries. What a pity.

Question:
Will the stable kstars run with indi 1.9.1?
TIA
