JMH,
Could you provide more information about your situation. Are you running the nightly build or the stable build. Are you running Stellarmate or a Linux desktop? Did you experience any QHY crashes after the late February Indi update? The Indi update and associated QHY crashes seems not to have affected Stellarmate users.
Thanks.
Lou

What is an older QHY camera model? My QHY5iiLM did not work as of 2 days ago and I am wondering if my QHY5 is considered an older model.

I tested my QHY5IIL-M yesterday with the nightly build and the stable build. Just a reminder I am using a Linux Mint desktop running the latest updates. In both cases the QHY driver crashed.

So we should be using the nightly builds?

Just to elaborate I am using a Linux desktop not a Stellarmate. If the QHY 5 problem was fixed on Stellarmate it is not fixed on acLinux desktop.

Still doesn’t work for me either. I did another update to the latest Indi library using the commands
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mutlaqja/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install indi-full gsc
The system no longer crashes but after I press connect on the QHY5 control panel I get a yellow light, not green. Also when I go to the Guiding tab the QHY5 is not available as a guider.
I also get a nagging message that the QHY5 Ii LM driver has crashed. I know I am using the latest Indi driver release because my Altair Hypercam 183 M now works. How frustrating, i waited months for my main imaging camera to work, but when it started working the guide camera quit.

I went to some pain to install Kstars/Ekos and the new Indi libtaty. I purged the okd installation and reinstalled the new. Is there a way to determine version of the QHY Indi driver one is using?

Tried the latest release on my QHY 5II L M camera. The QHY driver crashes. I normally use the camera as a guider but today was using it as a standalone imager.

I am sorry I am ignorant. So you would have 2 versions installed simultaneously? Wouldtheir be any conflicts with libraries and modules?

I have Kstars/Ekos installed on my Linux Mint desktop. Whats the best way to uninstall previous version and install latest stable release. I read on the internet that one should use aptitude and the purge option.

irst, purge all the KStars and INDI packages, if they are installed:

sudo aptitude purge indi-bin libindi-data libindi1 libindidriver1
sudo aptitude purge kstars kstars-data
Add Jasim Mutlaq's PPA respository for KStars, and INDI. It includes Ekos as part of KStars.

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mutlaqja/ppa
sudo aptitude update
Would this work?

Thank you for your help. I am enclosing 2 log files, one from Indi Server for Windows and another from Kstars/Ekos. The problem device is the Rigel nstep focus motor. It conects just fine in my Windows programs such as SGP Pro or APT using Ascom but errors off using Indi Sever for Windows. My mount is the EQ5 running EQMOD. The mount is assigned a com port of 3 and the Rigel nstep also uses a com port of 4. In the Indi Control under the Options tab there is a setting called Interface and it is set to 8.

Thanks for the reply. I contacted Cloudmakers and they said they no longer maintain Indi Server for Windows. No updates have been made in 2 years. They have switched to something called Indigo. This information might be useful for others who try the all Windows route.
