cam86 indi driver for astroberry #50874
Hi
First, libftdi is the tricky one
Try to follow this :
developer.intra2net.com/mailarchive/html...i/2013/msg00014.html
(until step 4)

Then :
ssh to your pi and install compilation tools :
(copy/paste bold lines and press enter)
sudo apt-get install build-essential gcc cmake git
install indilib dev prerequisites :
sudo apt-get install cdbs libcfitsio-dev libnova-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev libjpeg-dev libusb-dev libtiff5-dev libftdi-dev fxload libkrb5-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev libraw-dev libgphoto2-dev libgsl0-dev dkms libboost-regex-dev libgps-dev libdc1394-22-dev

Clone cam86 driver somewhere on your machine (here ~/tmp)
cd
mkdir tmp
cd tmp
git clone github.com/gehelem/indi_cam86_ccd.git
cd indi_cam86_ccd


Then switch to my lastest code :
git checkout workinprogress

Then compilation steps starts :
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
(<= two points are important !)
make
If you have any error in the 2 previous steps, tell me

You have to manually isnstall udev rules file, i have to fix that :
sudo cp ../99-cam86.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/
And restart udev :
sudo service udev restart

plug your cam86

From here you can run the driver like that :
indiserver -v -m 100 ./indi_cam86_ccd

you can also install the driver into your environemnt :
sudo make install
with that one, you can use the driver like any other one.

Gilles.

Can you provide a screenshot ?
i must say most of these problems seem to be related to libftdi driver, wich is much less efficient than D2XX
(especially on these small SBC)
but using it is mandatory...

you can try to play with baudrates, latency and timer values
good luck
