[SOLVED] unable to connect to EQmod #40601
Hi all,
Just bought a RPi and installed Stellarmate. My Losmandy is equipped with steppermotors and an EQDrive which makes it EQmod compatible.
If I plugin the usb cable connecting the EQDrive I can see /dev/ttyUSB0 appear (and disappear when I unplug). However when I try to connect either in Ekos or with Indi device manager I get the following message:

[WARNING] Port /dev/ttyUSB0 is already used by another driver or process.
[WARNING] Communication with /dev/ttyUSB0 @ 9600 failed. Starting Auto Search...

Anybody any idea?

Cheers Arnold

Actually Jasem found out it had to do with the GPS deamon.
I desabled it from startup - after some search on how to do that;-))
