Today I wanted to check if the computer is powerfull enough to also run kstars/ekos on it, and wanted to make use of ekos starting indiserver by itself. For that I had to select a mount (CEM60). This created a new configuration in ~/.indi, named iOptron CEM60_config.xml. The other one, created when running the manual indiserver command, was called iEQ_config.xml. And of course, after that change, PHD2 didn't find the mount anymore, as it was looking for the iEQ device :(
So I checked the running indi programs, but that didn't give a hint how the name had been passed to the indi_ieq_telescope program. I'd really like to use the same name for both methods so I can easily switch without having to change the configuration of PHD2. I tried 'indiserver --help' but that doesn't mention driver options...

How would I have to start indiserver to use the new device configuration file?


If you start INDI Server in FIFO mode, you can start drivers with specific names (see indilib.org/develop/developer-manual/92-indi-server.html ). Ekos always uses FIFO mode so that it can dynamically start/stop drivers and renames the default name (e.g. iEQ) to a more friendly label (e.g. "iOptron CEM60").

If you don't want to use Ekos and have INDI Web Manager installed and running, you can make an web API call and it would a profile with all the "correct" labels always.

Ok so it looks like memory access error since one SkyObject (which was focused) no longer exists or was not initialized or some stray pointer. Do you get this crash after you reinstall the comets again?
