To supplement I tried running gdb --ex run --eval-command="set follow-fork-mode child" --args indiserver -v indi_atik_ccd
But gdb did not catch the catch the crash and break. It just simply let the driver try 10 times..... see below

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to get my pi zero W runs as an indi server. When I start the indi_atik_ccd the driver keeps crashing.
I tried to run indiserver -vvv but the log did not print much.
Recompile indiserver & the atik driver in the pi zero, but that did not resolve the problem.
Any ideas to have indiserver print out more debug log in command line mode?

Hi Chris,

I fixed the issue at the serial number and made a pull request. 



And Jasem is asking for the documentation I will prepare one and upload later, okay?

Hi 
Not sure if this is in wishlist - is it possible to set the Main Camera ROI from FITS viewer?
Like using the mouse to draw a rectangle and then say "Set this ROI" and update the main camera X, Y, W, H settings.

Reason I need this is that I am planning to image with an SCT, and would like to adjust the SCT collimation with a Duncan mask - where a star will become a 3 arcs when it comes to near focus. My camera is an Atik 490ex - which is sort of slow in USB2 transfer in full resolution. So I'll be needing the ROI for speeding up the transfer. I can set the ROI manually by observing the area I need with the viewer plus the grid display. Just want to see if there's a more handy way to set it "visually" where I can select a region from the FITS viewer, and turn it into the ROI.

Thanks & clear skies
Stephen

Christopher,
Yes I checked the printlog at the bottom also and I can see the correct firmware version. So may be just a field problem on the upper textbox.

Christopher, it's ok, no worries :)
and mine firmware/serial looks like this.

 



I will have to find out why the firmware version is not appearing.

Mine looks like this.... appears to be normal.

Willem can you try at the Options Tab, and Purge Configuration once, and restart INDI and see if the port comes back?

I've checked the command works well. But I would recommended connecting the hand controller - when a star is aligned, there'll be a beep sound from the iHubo and you can see the number of stars aligned from the HC display. At first I thought the HC is kind of bulky, but later I've found it's handy on certain commands. Like I want to HOME the mount I just press and hold ILL.

Hi everyone,
I've received a reply from BJ confirming the blank display issue. He mentioned to get the display to work again, just press Esc one more time to resolve.
