Good to hear!

Note that you probably didn’t see any updates in the KStars-on-osx script in the last couple of days, but I Made lots of changes in my recipes repo which the script uses.

So yes, at the moment, you really need to successfully build it using the script first, before you can use QT Creator or Xcode, the reason for this is that KStars depends on a number of programs that should be internally installed in the app bundle, such as INDI, and without them it won't work very well.

I have been trying to get another REPO up and running for new developers so that they don't have to set up craft and deal with all that stuff. I find it easier to work with. I need to make some updates to it based on Xcode 12 and the new KStars 3.5.0. But you might be interested in looking it over. The main REPO you have been using is necessary to build the main DMGs and get it all built and up and running, but for new developers who just want to make small submissions, installing all the stuff with craft is a lot of work. So my DEV repo could make this easier.

The KStars-INDI-Mac-Dev repo looks great - I'll have a go at it!

Crud - spoke too soon. Just had the exact same behavior. Clicking on the Setup/Summary tab creates an IMMEDIATE crash in QLabel::setPixmap(QPixmap const&) + 20. Crash log attached. KStars/Ekos running for about an hour or so, running a two-job sequence queue and autoguiding.

This sounds like an odd error, do you have a log to show how this happened, what was going on at the time?

KStars still crashes when I click Settings -> Startup Wizard (as reported here www.indilib.org/forum/development/7950-k...3-5-0-osx.html#62459). Crash log attached.

I didn't turn on any specific KStars logs, no. The action that causes the crash is clicking on the Setup/Summary tab in Ekos while running an image sequence. I've seen it several times now. The best I can recall is that this happens when Ekos is running a sequence in the background and I click on the Setup/Summary tab to bring it forward as the active application. If Ekos is the front active application I think I can switch tabs without issue. But, every crash I've seen now terminates in that QLabel::setPixmap(QPixmap const&) and I see a sendPendingMoveAndResizeEvents further up the chain. It's possibly the combination of switching to the Summary tab AND activating the app to bring it forward.

I have Qt 5.12.3 installed and setup, forked the KStars repo on GitLab, edited build-env.sh with my paths and user, and ran setup.sh -r. Seems your username is stuck deep somewhere (probably in the repo) and I haven't found it yet - and it's causing several CMake errors and the script to fail. Ideas on where?

Any chance the KStars-INDI-Mac-Dev script will build on a new M1 Chip Mac soon? I tried it, but saw a bunch of link errors:

"ld: symbol(s) not found for architecture arm64"

So I believe the current build will run on Silicon using Rosetta, but also that a good portion of it should be universal binaries.  Is this correct from what you can see?  My current system is Intel so I don’t know how it looks on the other system.

As for building on a Silicon device, I think that a number of binary files compiled by vendors for drivers would be Intel based.  But this should still work with Rosetta I would think?  Again I don’t know since I don’t have the system.

where were the errors?  With INDI I assume?

Yes, it seems to run fine with Rosetta, but I'm talking about building from code. It fails with many link errors as noted above. I didn't look into script settings or Xcode config or Qt config or any other deep troubleshooting - wanted to know if the consensus thought I should expect it to build on an M1 machine or not? Doesn't look like it.

What is the current status with respect to running on Apple Silicon M1 chip based machines? Rosetta2 or native?
