Let me work on that, I will take some screenshots for each steps and add steps to the pdf file.
Are you able please to send by email the original document you've used to create the pdf?

Rob and Jamie, do you think it's time to ask Jasem to get our DMG up in indilib.org/download/osx.html ?
Or do we need a little bit more testing/updates/time ?

What about a tutorial page on how to compile Kstars for OSX at indilib.org/support/tutorials.html ? necessary or not?

Just throwing this here before I forget later on:

Shall we not have in the "KStars for Mac Quick Start Guide" pdf file a section explaining that you need to setup the Indi and Ekos/Astrometry settings set to *internal solver* ?

I'm testing the new installed, and I'm glad to see that the 'Download New Data' works well. No issues on that part.
by the way, this is done on my non-dev laptop.

Been away from the thread and forum for a few weeks, first how are you doing Jamie, how's the arm?
I used to be a biker (well, you don't really stop being a biker.. lol) and had my share of accidents but nothing ever got broken (just my bike and pride).

As for the DMG, are we any closer in finding out why it crashes on trying to take a picture?
I did compare Jamie's one and mine the other week and apart from the version of a dlyb, not much else is different.

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

ouch, yes get well soon.

The build went fine from start to finish, no errors.
I have tested the dmg on the MBP, it works as in 'new data to download' for example, however it still crashes on attempting to take a picture via the CCD simulator.
What i don't understand is that Jamie's dmg didn't show this issue, but my build does.

I believe this issue needs looking into it as if someone wants to try their own build.... it might fail too.

looks like they got the emerge build fixed.

Yes, I just tried it successfully. And they appear to have fixed "download new data"

I'm running a build-kstars.sh -i3ae now, I want to see if my dmg will crash again like last time.

I guess that's what happens when we rely on other sources for our code. How many different sources for code /people does our method rely on? The git website, emerge/craft, indilib, brew, haraldkf, and kstars at least. Part of the point is keeping everything up to date, but I guess that also means sometimes it won't work when websites go down, repositories change names, or somebody makes a coding error.

The good news is that our plan is to make a dmg that would be pre-built and hosted on a website. So even if these things have problems, it won't affect the version that folks need to download. The issues will only affect our development copies.

You're right about everything there, and I think the sooner we can get a "stable" working dmg the better it is.

It also did not break on mine yesterday (as far I as remember) and I do not know why. However we now know how to fix it ;)

Trying these now - question: Should this let the brew install haraldf/kf5/kf5-knotifications work? Like, should I just fix and retry that, or move on?

it goes as this:
brew install haraldf/kf5/kf5-knotifications ---> BREAKS
apply fix
brew install haraldf/kf5/kf5-knotifications ---> WORKS

Here are the steps, this is following Jamie's post having issue installing some KF5 stuff.
So I decided to nuke my install and start from crash.
clean up operation: indilib.org/forum/ekos/525-ekos-on-mac-o...tml?start=1068#12524

New steps to get it working nicely:

brew tap haraldf/kf5

cd /usr/local/Homebrew/Library/Taps/haraldf/homebrew-kf5
Stephanes-MacBook-Air:homebrew-kf5 stephanelucas$ pwd
/usr/local/Homebrew/Library/Taps/haraldf/homebrew-kf5

sed -i '.bak' 's/*args/"-DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=\/Users\/stephanelucas\/Qt5.7.0\/5.7\/clang_64\/", *args/g' *.rb
sed -i '.bak' '/depends_on "qt5"/,/^/d' *.rb

brew install haraldf/kf5/kf5-kcoreaddons
brew install haraldf/kf5/kf5-kauth
brew install haraldf/kf5/kf5-knotifications
the above one there will/might break, you need to do:
/usr/local/lib/libexec
rm kauth
ln -s ../../Cellar/kf5-kauth/5.25.0/lib/libexec/kauth/ kauth
brew install haraldf/kf5/kf5-kplotting
brew install haraldf/kf5/kf5-kxmlgui
brew install haraldf/kf5/kf5-kdoctools

You should now have the following:
brew list -1 | grep '^kf5-' | egrep "kf5-kcrash|kf5-kdoctools|f5-knewstuff|kf5-knotifications|kf5-kxmlgui|kf5-kplotting"
kf5-kcrash
kf5-kdoctools
kf5-knewstuff
kf5-knotifications
kf5-kplotting
kf5-kxmlgui
