I am back to experimentation. GPhoto driver only INDI server, connected to KStars/EKOS, full debugging on comes with the following when I attempt to capture:

Hmm. I've been playing a bit more detailed with GPhoto2 and now it seems to work, at least with normal exposures and also bulb mode:

gphoto2 --set-config shutterspeed=bulb
gphoto2 --set-config bulb=1 --wait-event=3s --set-config bulb=0 --wait-event-and-download=2s 
When setting shutterspeed to bulb and capture with GTKam, it does not work. It seems that the bulb interface with GPhoto2 is a bit tricky?
KStars/Indiserver still don't work, the gphoto2 driver becomes unresponsive. When I kill the IndiServer process, all driver processes are killed as well, except for the gphoto2 one...

it is a >3MB file, too much to attach I guess... otherwise:

Arjan replied to the topic 'Building indi-gphoto on Pi3' in the forum. 3 months ago

Picked this up again.
I try to capture with gtkam, a wrapper around gphoto2 and libgphoto2 etc. This works for anything other than BULB setting.
Does it sound as a familiar problem?

So I found out that you can actually build the Indi server and drivers on the Pi3 itself, running Ubuntu. In fact this goes quite smoothly.

There is a dependency issue with the indi-gphoto 3rd prty driver I don't know how to solve:

pi@upper-pi:~/Projects/build/indi-gphoto$ cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug ~/Projects/indi/3rdparty/indi-gphoto
-- Found CFITSIO: /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libcfitsio.so
-- Found INDI: /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libindi.so
-- Could NOT find GPHOTO2 (missing:  GPHOTO2_LIBRARY GPHOTO2_INCLUDE_DIR)
CMake Error: The following variables are used in this project, but they are set to NOTFOUND.
Please set them or make sure they are set and tested correctly in the CMake files:

The lib-gphoto2 is in /usr/share.
The directory /usr/include/gphoto2 is missing
The lib-gphoto2-port I cannot find

So my question is: how to resolve this?

I don't think the power is the issue either, it worked fine with the previous version, it stopped after installing the latest driver.
I'll just upgrade again when they expect clear skies, which (as you probably know) can take a long time in Western Europe...

Arjan replied to the topic 'Ekos fails to control Sony A7s' in the forum. 3 months ago

Thanks again.
As said, I am using a Canon 450D and have different kind of issues but with the same driver. Shortly, the connected light turns yellow and it stops functioning.

Arjan replied to the topic 'Ekos fails to control Sony A7s' in the forum. 3 months ago

I don't see anything happening, even nothing in the log window. The driver itself seems to be running still, process is still alive, so maybe it ended up in some undefined state...
I will upgrade and see what happens. Thanks!

Thanks for your suggestions.
I'm pretty sure that the SD card is not the problem, since I have made some pics recently, before re-installing and upgrading the lot. Maybe it's just a matter of upgrading again...

Did you solve this issue? I get similar behavior with my Canon 450D.

So here is the error dump with the latest (30 min ago) installed PPA software.
The driver crashes twice, on different places in the exchange of info.

Hi,
I have EKOS and a "remote" indiserver running on a Pi3. When I connect to the EQ Mod driver from EKOS, the driver stops and is respawned. After this, the behaviour seems a bit erratic...
What could be causing this?

OK, I did install indi_full on the Pi3, but there are still only 3CCD to choose from, and a whole list of mounts, but not EQMod...

Also, after starting indi_server, the drivers don't start (no such file or directory) and after that the unix shell cannot even find the ls command, although /bin still is in the PATH. Anyway, strange things are happening, and I decide to re-install all on teh Pi3 and try from a single board.
