Hi
I'm sorry I'm not good at English.
I know that Tokyo is not DST area, I live in.I think the current code is getting the wrong time on other TZ as well.

strptime, ctime and cdate are fine.
strptime function is described in the man page as "tm should be initialized before the call.".
I think that ltm should be initialized to avoid troubles.
And it suggests to set tm_isdst=0 before calling mktime.
is this all right?

@Gene / @ Norikyu,

good to see you make progress on the topic.
May be we could also involve Jasem because he has the overview over the whole project as it impacts many drivers.

Thank you to you both

I'm sorry it took a long time.
I have attached a patch suggestion.
I tested lx200_OnStep, but no other drivers. (I don't have an other mount.)
I think the lx200 series patch is okay.
Other drivers need to be tested to see if they work fine.
Thank you.

@Norikyu, @Michael,

Utc error in Ekos is not yet gone, Norikyu just proposed a patch and he tested it against OnStep.
To include the change into Indi Master a pull request must be issued.
Before doing this some additional steps need to be doen:
- change revision for each modified driver
- change drivers.xml for each modified driver
- check build and drivers functions
and then issue the pull request

so will take some time.

I propose to do it but if anybody volunteers, he is welcome!

Thx Alain for the info!
I'm a total unix noob, lol
I'll just go back to stellarmate1.5.5 which seems to work best for me and wait
for a new stable release.

@Michael,

we all are noobs in some matter. We just do our best!
And I am convinced that only noobs can discover some really stupid bugs ans so improve end user experience!

Hi all,

Would someone please be kind to guide me through how to instal new indi lib 1.9.6 into stellarmate 1.7.0?
I know nothing about linux or terminal.
