256MB should be enough. However, for testing, it's worth increasing if you hear that they've been doing something with buffers.

Please confirm that everything is fine for the newest INDI / INDI-3rdParty builds with the old library.

I was able to get set up tonight, so thought I would try a quite recent build. Kstars crash, as others have reported. Here is the backtrace:

I can confirm that, same here.  Reducing the FOV of my ASI183 to 3672x3672 prevents it from crashing!  But already at 4000 it starts crashing again, so no workable solution.

FWIW, I also tried using a USB2 cable to connect.  But no difference to USB3.

So a crash in the driver led to a crash in KStars. I can look into the one in KStars, but not sure about the ASI. does ./asi_camera_test causes a crash as well?

I did not try asi_camera_test, but will when I set up again.

Should we revert to the previous SDK version? If this SDK version is buggy, I suggest we revert until the issue is address by ZWO.

That might be advisable. I reverted to a copy of the build I had from March 19, and it worked great for the rest of the night last night.

running `git diff c882e29822f6b692a6d6db2e48e99cab88ac31a5 .` it looks like the previous version of the Camera SDK was 1.16.3. The EAF and EFW were updated on the 19th.
I think we can leave those alone and only change the camera version. Thoughts?

I think that's a good idea... we need to increase the debian version (and I presume spec too) so that is overwrites the nightlies...

The spec won't need changed. It also has a date-stamp automatically, so will get updated with the merge.

Alright, go ahead then and please prepare a PR if you can. Anyone reporting these crash issues to ZWO?

Just tried it with my laptop and the ASI183MC.  Did crash, too:

Yes, 1.16.3 is also what I run for observations (a compile from March 11).
ISTR that there were also reports of issues with the filter wheels here in the forum.  They do work for me, though, as does the EAF.
