Hello Philippe,
The inovaplx driver is simply the old driver, but released with open-source license. Many parts of its code refer to the old driver, so be patient, I'll do a pull request with the changes you suggest.
Thank you, BTW for your useful feedback.
Best Regards,
Ilia.

Then nothing to do: this deb seems to be built on a different version of linux. I tried with my custom arm yakkety distribution and it works.

There is the link only to the library, libinovasdk.so.1 is missing in new packets. I can give my version of the library, and ask them to include into the deb.

But.. are you sure that libinovasdk is not present?
type this command:

ls /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libinova*

Olivier,
can you print here the contents of /etc/ld.so.conf?

This library is installed by the deb: it should be into /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/ and this directory should be into your LD_LIBRARY_PATH or searched by /etc/ld.so.conf
Note that the INDI driver by i.Nova is designed to run on most generic situations, but these not include all ones.
If you install the driver with dpkg, there should be no problem if after the installation you fix the dependencies using apt-get -f, also consider that it is quite old that version, the new version is online and it is built using INDI 1.4:

It is strange that it doesn't find cfitsio4, try to make a symbolic link to the cfitsio library, I think that version 3 can be refered without problem.

ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcfitsio.so.3 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcfitsio.so.4
or
ln -s /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libcfitsio.so.3 /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libcfitsio.so.4
if you can't find cfitsio try with the following:
ln -s `ls -t /usr/lib/*linux-gnu*/libcfitsio* | tail -n +1 | head -1` /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libcfitsio.so.4
The deb should solve this dependency but it seems it doesn't do that correctly.

You can also try to run the driver from commandline, this is a known bug: when running it from KStars in local mode it does connect but it doesn't capture.

Hi, What is the problem with the new drivers?
I can ask them to release soon a new version. If you give me some more details I can try to explain them.
For example:
-is the camera is detected?
-do the serial number is displayed into the logs?
-Is the image displayed correctly or is it shifted?
In some day a new driver will be released for Ubuntu Yakkety and INDI 1.4, will make a formal request. This may take from one to three days.
Best Regards,
Ilia.

Jasem,
Also consider that this method is applicable on photon detectors also, the most difficult thing is to keep a good time sync. using low sample rates and low cut-off frequencies helps in this manner, but this means that longer integration times are needed to get higher SNR (improved by stacking signals). Having more antennas or detectors means improving SNR.

Using intensity interferometry I think it is possible: applying an AM digital demodulator and a low-pass filter to its output (both digital) you can use it without problem. 1420MHz is the IF or the observed frequency?
I read that common satellite LNBs are used for radio astronomy in the microwave spectrum, and their observed frequency is around 10GHz. This can make much simpler the approach because the large diffusion of satellite dishes.
