Yes, I have the same issue when trying to connect my QHY5L-II Mono to Astroberry. I think this happens because the QHY sdk is meant to run on ubuntu and not raspbian. See what was said on a similar issue on the QHY Polemaster:
indilib.org/forum/astroberry/6052-astrob.../46746.html?start=96

I don't know if anything has changed since then, it would be interesting to see if Stellarmate 1.5.0 has the same issue now that it is also based on Raspbian.

Hi,

I regularly update/upgrade Astroberry 2.0.1 via apt-get, but my PHD2 version is still 2.6.6dev4. When I start PHD2, it reports a new version: 2.6.7

How can I get this version?

Thanks,
Bernd

A quick use of apt-file seems to reveal that phd2 is not installed via apt-get, so you may need to manually install the update if you really need it.

Means building it from Git sources?

Just looking at this now, but I think, yes, via the instructions here:

github.com/OpenPHDGuiding/phd2/wiki/BuildingPHD2OnLinux

The pre-requisties (cmake / build environment stuff) are not in the standard Astroberry image, so you'll need to install that too.

Only thing to watch for, is that the source might not install it to /usr/bin, and might use /usr/local/bin, or other folder, but otherwise you can probably install it.

It may have been left out as it bundles with SDKs which are not strictly free/gpl etc...

Also might want to note, I'm unsure whether this is an Astroberry quirk or, as phd2 runs anyway, but under Astroberry /usr/bin/phd2 is actually a script which edits the environment library path then runs phd2.bin with the original parameters. So be sure to check after build before actually doing "sudo make install", to avoid clobbering the /usr/bin/phd2 script.

Thanks gilesco for the information!

Looks like medium to high risk that PHD2 won‘t run together with Ekos afterwards... at least for an unexperienced Linux noob like me.

Radek, what would you recommend?

Thx, Bernd

I've just done the build on my Pi4, all succeeded by the looks of it, and it didn't clobber the phd2 script, it in fact re-installed the script et all. Also currently installed library in /usr/lib/phd2 so looks like the install instructions on the link I gave pretty much exactly replaces the older phd2 on Astroberry.

Works perfectly with the Ekos simulators set-up! Thx again
