Kstars 3.5.0 OSx #62213
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?

I may have figured it out...
Compared 2 locations in Germany, mine and another place, check this out.

Another place not mine


Mine

it looks like I've been beamed to the equator...

That is very strange Stephane, I have no idea how that could have happened.

I guess there could have been some data incorrectly written when it crashed?

Kstars 3.5.0 has been very stable, I was about to put a post about it and then I kid you not 30 sec after I thought about the stability the all thing went batshitcrazy on me. Very spooky.
First time this actual error happened ever. I fixed it after figuring it out, and I'm running 2 sessions now.

One thing that's not quite working well is the guiding, I think I may have a log and will post it another timer, something about exposure timeout.
