TOPIC: Ubuntu 18.04 TRASHED by INDI/KStars/

Ubuntu 18.04 TRASHED by INDI/KStars/ 1 week 2 days ago #32254

Thanks for the advice. By using the LiveCD I was able to recover one of my systems.

I am going to disable all the logs now as a temporary solution.

So I have an update.

Disk space became full again last night. I enabled logging on file though.

I am going to check what actually happened. But for now I think that this happens when the computer fails to download an image from my QHY165C, i.e. it is stuck in "capturing an exposure". This problem occurs rather frequently on Ubuntu 18.04 and macOS with INDI.

I should also mention that a similar problem with my camera exists on Windows (SGP), but instead of being stuck at exposure it is stuck while downloading the image.

Kind regards,
Jonathan

So which disk ran full? / or /home? (or are those on the same disk?)
Is it the kstars/ekos log file that is huge, or is it (hardware device) errors from the kernel?
You said you're going to disable logs. Did you? seems not...

So I analysed the logs and found what happened.

The following log entry was written simultaneously into /var/log/syslog and /var/log/kern.log at a rate of SEVERAL HUNDREDS THOUSANDS TIMES A SECOND PER FILE:
kernel: [3314.xxxxxx] usb 4-4: usbfs: process 3751 (indi_qhy_ccd) did not claim interface 0 before use

Using
grep -c "indi_qhy_ccd"
returned 211,661,935 matches in /var/log/syslog ALONE.

I think this is a major issue, but I understand that this might be an issue with the QHYSDK, not INDI.

I have filed a bug report on the INDI GitHub.

Many thanks,
Jonathan
