Hi Stephane,

So the ETA for the OS X dmg would be the release date for 3.5.0 for all platforms. I believe it will be later this month. I just added a very big part for 3.5.0 and we need to make sure it is all good first.

thanks,

Rob

I just installed a clean KStars 3.5 from the nightlies onto a newly clean install of Ubuntu 18.04.05 mini pc. I also installed and activated INDI Web Manger. Then I launched KStars OSX on my Mac (OSX 10.16.6 Catalina) and when I tried ti connect ti my Ubuntu machine's INDI web manager the Mac crashed. This was repeated every time even after rebooting both machines. It worked fine before I downloaded the Nightly with 3.5. Is KStars/INDI 3.5 no longer able to play well with Mac OSX version KSTARS 3.4?

Awesome news!

Related topic, is there a tutorial on how to debug issues compiling macOS (Catalina) from source? (I have tried a variety of tools including github.com/rlancaste/kstars-on-osx-craft)

I have been trying to work on the WeatherWatcher driver to add support for SQM and other metrics and keep hitting the following error -
snip

Any pointers/tips?

You really would want to use one of my two build scripts, pretty much the exact one you copied in your post

github.com/rlancaste/kstars-on-osx-craft

But as of right now I need to make some updates to it based on the introduction of StellarSolver.

Right now I’m really focused on getting the StellarSolver all ready for the 3.5.0 release. It is a truly huge change that should fix all of the plate solving issues on Mac and Windows while at the same time making blind solves incredibly fast. But it is a lot of work. I have been working on it since February and I’ve been doing the integration work this October.

I will update the build script soon, And with that release a preliminary DMG. But I am trying to get all this worked out first.

Thanks, I'm really struggling with the error compiling drvrnet.c - I thought it might have been an include file issues but no such luck with an easy problem.

I used to love that OSX was such a clean Unix variant, now it just feels like (a more secure, more friendly) headache!

I tried compiling it directly from the indi source build, but was having what looked like clang related issues with the ffmpeg module, so hitting my head against a lot of walls (and to be fair I;'m not a full time or even part time developer, I know enough to hack about, but I've got a lot fo catching up to do with 20 years of downtime between my last coding job and now!

What's the difference between the two "full screen" options?

I have no idea, did you try them both? Sometimes Qt or MacOS adds extra items to the menu to support OS Specific features, maybe that is what it is.

I have tried both, there is something odd going on.
To reproduce what I've noticed:
start Kstars then click in the following order
View > Full Screen Mode (first option) (it goes full screen)


View > Exit Full Screen (second option) (it goes back to normal)


View > Exit Full Screen Mode (first option) (it goes back to normal)


View > Exit Full Screen (second option) (it goes back to normal)

When I try to start the Startup Wizard, KStars crashes. See the attached crash log.

Something very odd just happened. Kstars crashed for no apparent reasons, on restarting it my sky orientation is 100% wrong.


Usually Polaris is way up and not near the horizon for me...

Is there a way to reset this?
