rlancaste wrote: Hi Jamie, could you also take a look at building the other 3rd party drivers? We are not building many of them and there are more available that we could build. We are already doing gphoto, eqmod, cloudwatcher, spectracyber, maxdomeII and sx. Three that I am particularly interested in are the ZWO/ASI, the SBIG, and the DSI. I started trying to modify the code to make them work, but I was having trouble. You will find my lines of code in the script commented out. Please take a look at your convenience. Thanks!


Sorry, been a while...

I had tried building them before - the only ones that I could get to build I included. There were a variety of failures building them.

Hi All-
Work has been crazy busy lately- I will try to take a look at the doc steps and see if I can help there.

The merge looked fine - not sure why I didn't get notified if there was a PR. Since it is merged in to master you should probably remove the old brand if you are done.

I am working on getting these changes into Jamie's script as best I can. I hope Jamie gets well soon so he can check my work ;-). Through experimentation I found out that for the macdeployqt command, -executable does seem to work well (at least it seemed to do something for kioslave) and we might want to do some more with that. the -extra plugins command did nothing really, except break the deployment step because it did not recognize it. I ended up just copying the plugins and that worked fine.

I am actually traveling again, in Sweden this week.

Don't forget that you are listed as a contributor on the github repo - make a branch (not a fork) for your changes, and check them in! when you have it where you want it submit a pull request, and I will do some diffs and perhaps comment on enhancement.

I should be able to look at it next week :)

I thought I would first look through the output of the terminal while building the dmg on my new Sierra MacBook first to see if there is any clue why it wouldn't work from the dmg on my wife's computer. I noticed a couple of things. They might be nothing, but I thought they were worth noting. Are these no big deal?

During all the otool checking, copying of dylib's and changing @rpath and @executable paths:
Skipping Copy: libindi.1.dylib already in Frameworks
Skipping libcfitsio.5.dylib, not executable
Skipping libraw.15.dylib, not executable

During dmg build:
ERROR: no file at "/opt/local/lib/mysql55/mysql/libmysqlclient.18.dylib"
ERROR: no file at "/usr/local/lib/libpq.5.dylib"

I think those are OK

when you build it does it crash?

looks like I did a brew install indi-atik, which broke my libindi stuff.

I will see if I can regroup from that.

Also, how is the recovery Jamie? Everything going ok? I hope you are feeling much better!

I had surgery last week - a plate, some screws and wire. First followup is Monday, along with the first physical therapy. most of the motion is back, at least with the fingers. The wrist is hindered because of the brace and the wires. Also no word from the other guy's insurance company as to whether or not the bike is totaled.

Thanks for asking :)

As for the DMG - I don't think that I copied out the last one that built - Quite a bit of work travel sprang up. Actually on a plane now, and headed to Sweden on Monday evening. I probably won't have a chance to look at it until after next week.

It doesn't crash, it just fails.

Do you mean a separate command?

@knro I see that you posted a similar question on the astrometry.net github repo, I did in fact have multiple versions laying around. I cleaned up a bunch of the old ones and it seems better now.

try:

sudo find / -name image2pnm\*
/home/jamie/projects/astrometry.net/util/image2pnm.py
/home/jamie/projects/astrometry.net/bin/image2pnm

I have this working with the simulator the other day, But now it is failing.

When I try to solve the output from the CCD simulator I get the following error with verbose enabled in the log:

I am trying another build.

I haven't seen anything like that before - it implies the libindi.1.dylib isn't there.

What os version?

OK - I solved my own problem. Offline didn't work either, was getting a sage error.

Long story short - it appears that the --no-fits2fits option doesn't/no longer exists. removing it from my command got me on my way

wget http://astrometry.net/downloads/astrometry.net-latest.tar.gz
tar xzf astrometry.net-latest.tar.gz
cd astrometry.net-*

make
make py
make extra
sudo make install

which puts the gse stuff in /usr/local/astrometry/
doest this work for anyone? any tips?

I am going to be out of touch for a few days, someone turned left right in front of me while i was on the motorcycle. Shattered left forearm, MRI & surgery scheduled for tomorrow.

i put an updated dmg on that same dropbox link (www.dropbox.com/s/eoqstbm3uw3ozbc/kstars.dmg) - see if that works. if so, try to compare contents
