EKOS/KSTARS causing my WIn10 laptop to freeze #41020
I loaded up the latest stable version of KStars onto my Win10 laptop. Using KStars by itself is no problem. The issue comes when I launch and use Ekos.
I load up Ekos & connect to all my equipment. I then start plate solving, after a couple of iterations my machine completely freezes. Screen, Mouse, Keyboard, the lot. The only way I can recover is to do a hard-boot. It happens regularly and with no warning or error messages displayed.
My machine is unremarkable:
Core i7-6500 CPU
AMD Radeon graphics card
I checked the load on my machine and there was nothing that looked out of place. I suspect it is the graphics card that is causing the issue but I have only had it occur when using Ekos.
So are there any graphics card incompatibilities that would cause this?
Thanks in advance.
