Running Kstars 3.6.0 and indilib 1.9.7 on Raspberry PI (Ubuntu Mate 22.04) the indi_asi_ccd driver crashes silently immedialtly after start:
[2022-08-04T16:23:57.920 CEST CRIT ][ org.kde.kstars.indi] - INDI driver "indi_asi_ccd" crashed!
No more info!


Running the same on openSuse 15.4, the log says:
[2022-08-04T15:56:47.968 CEST DEBG ][ org.kde.kstars.indi] - INDI Server: "2022-08-04T13:56:47: Driver indi_asi_ccd: [17780,17780 ASIGetNumOfConnectedCameras]: ASIGetNumOfConnectedCameras >>"
.....
.....
[2022-08-04T15:56:47.968 CEST CRIT ][ org.kde.kstars.indi] - INDI driver "indi_asi_ccd" crashed!

Any idea?

Is that openSUSE also on the Pi?
The forum has several posts about that issue, the latest SDKs released by ZWO have a faulty armv8 (aarch64) version of libASICamera2. You need to replace that with an older version (1.22; both 1.24 and 1.25 don't work).
Check for example this post
openSUSE Tumbleweed KStars git INDI git
GPDX+EQMOD, CEM60EC, ASI2600/1600/290mini+EFW+EAF

No, I run Ubuntu Mate on the Raspberry PI's and openSuse on my PC's.
However, I replaced the libASICamera2.so.1.25 with the previous one as described in your link and now my Raspberry PI's works fine again :) !

There seems to be a similar problem on the openSuse, both Leap 15.4 and Tumbleweed, but they are of less concern for me right now.
I will look into that later.

Thank You very much for Your help !

I'm running Tumbleweed on both the x86_64 machines and the Pi4, but self compiled packages from git. No issues here. What packages do you use? But the libASICamera problem only affected armv8 version, x86_64 always ran fine....

I used to compile from sources, but now I simply use the Astrophotography_Software repository for both Leap and Tumbleweed.
I will compile kstars, indilb and indi-3party from sources again just to verify.

So Tumbleweed works fine on RPI? How do you deal with all updates?

Thanks!

Oh, didn't even know that repo....
Not sure why the intel version fails, too. Guess you'll find out ;)

Yes, no problems at all with TW on the Pi. It is great to have the same OS version on all machines - all my private machines run TW now. The Pi is only for my second mount, so I do not follow all updates, but only do it once or twice a month. No problems with that so far. But I consider adding an SSD (it will boot from that, tried already) for speed and lifetime of the SD card...

Interesting! I may test TW on one of the RPI since openSuse has been the dist of my choice since years ago

The asi-driver crash on openSuse was caused by libasi. I compiled and installed only libasi from sources and now it works, even with the drivers from Astrophotography_Software repository.
