QHY cameras (PoleMaster and Orion Starshoot Guider) no longer recognized #45597
Since installing the recent Indi from Github my QHY cameras are no longer recognized by EKOS.
I tested this again today with the PoleMaster (the one I am really caring about). It is present according to lsusb:



This is what the log looks like when I attempt to mount the camera using the Device Manager, get the message that no camera is detected and to check for Power On, then I manually disconnected the service again.

I suspect the problem might be related to this

www.indilib.org/forum/general/4721-any-n...c-support.html#44712

since I did not have the problem until most recently.

QHY cameras (PoleMaster and Orion Starshoot Guider) no longer recognized #45636
I just upgraded to the latest stable version of Kstars (3.3.7 - November 8). It did not solve the problem.

This what the Device Manager log says when I try to start the QHY device driver:

As you can see, the PoleMaster is recognized as an initialized device (ID 941). According to the QHY website, the change of the ID from 0940 to 0941 indicates that the firmware has been loaded on the PoleMaster). Nonetheless, the camera can not be opened. I do not understand why. Or what to do about it. My Orion Starshoot, which initially also was not recognized after I updated the Indi drivers from the git is being recognized again (before the recent update, what I had to do was deinstall Indi and reinstall it), but the PoleMaster is still a Zombie.

Here is what happens when I use lsusb and qhy_ccd_test in the terminal;



I know there have been threads on this problem in the past here, but in reading through those, none of the solutions there seem to work for me.

Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this and what the problem could be?

Jo, that's an INDI problem, not one of kstars. There was an upgrade to QHY SDK 6.0.4 recently.

Maybe upgrading INDI resolves the problem.

This continues to be the problem with the latest Indi, updated today. Updating to SDK 6.0.4 (for RPi34) made it worse. Now when I run qhy_ccd_test I get the error that libqhyccd.so.6 can't be found. Although the link is present in /usr/local/lib and pointing to the correct target in the same folder.
I may have to wipe the entire installation and start from scratch. Something still conflicts and I can't figure out what it is.
Thanks Wolfgang!
Jo

PS: I don't see anything going wrong with the SDK 6.0.4 installation:

The PoleMaster is clearly recognized by the system (ID 1618:0940). At the same time, my ZWO ASI120MM and my Nikon DSLR are recognized and loaded no problem. So the drivers are there. Only the QHY cameras are having a problem, as now my Orion Starshoot Guider is also no longer recognzied.

QHY cameras cause nothing but trouble. So far, the ZWO drivers have been working very well for me. Except for the polemaster, I would love to ditch the QHY mess in a split second!

I am at a loss here. Does anyone have any idea why the system would not find libqhyccd.so.6?

This is why my PoleMaster is not recognized, I think.



Permissions look good to me, links are pointing to the correct target.

What happens when you type

sudo ldd /usr/local/lib/libqhyccd.so.6

? That should show all libraries that libqhyccd.so.6 (which is a symlink to libqhyccd.so.6.0.4) depends on. Perhaps one is missing?

That could be the problem. Now how do I fix it?

Making the file executable does not help:

Looks like a problem in the build process. Perhaps Jasem knows what’s going on?

The build is straightforward, see my post of the build process above:

www.indilib.org/forum/general/5982-qhy-c...ecognized.html#45656

That completed without any reported errors.

Also, installation of that library only seems to entail copying it directly to that directory:

+ cp -a usr/local/lib/libqhyccd.a usr/local/lib/libqhyccd.so usr/local/lib/libqhyccd.so.6 usr/local/lib/libqhyccd.so.6.0.4 /usr/local/lib

This is where the SDK was downloaded from:

www.qhyccd.com/file/repository/latestSof...yccd_V20191023_0.tgz

Is /usr/local/lib in the LD search path? Did you run ldconfig after installing the libs?

See the install log I have posted above. The last command of the install script is ldconfig.
