Kstars 3.4.1 randomly crashing #51619
Hi all,

I have been using Kstars 3.4.1 since it was released and have not suffered any problems. Recently ( in the last 2 days), it has been randomly crashing during capture. There's no warning or error message. It will be part way through a capture session (lights, Darks, Flats or Bias), and at a completely arbitrary point KStars will crash.

I then restart, set my capture session and it might or might not complete. Nothing has changed on my machine. Here is my set-up:

Windows 10 running 3.4.1 or KStars
RPI4 running Indi
8gb RAM

I can't find where the log file (if any exists) would be located.

I've tried on the RPI ( RPI 3 &4 ) and it crashes as well.

I have done an uninstall & reinstall with no joy.

Any help would be appreciated as I wasted so much time last night and didn't achieve any imaging. Now it's cloudy for a week. :( Note: nothing has changed on my laptop between Sat night when it ran perfectly & Sunday when it started to crash.

Regards,

Rene

So I managed to configure the logs and ran a test to see if it would crash. Sure enough it did, twice. Once at 16:16, the other at 16:39. I've attached the log file.

Hopefully someone can read this and see if there's a cause.

Cheers,

Rene

So I tested this on my RPI4 with SM1.5.0 & Kstars 3.4.1 and it crashed. Logs attached.

If this continues I'll have to look for another more stable program.

Can you please to the latest KStars (v3.4.1) and see if you can reproduce this crash? You're running 3.4.0 now.

KStars is crashing on my Windows machine, the indi server on pi4 keeps running.

It happens not everytime and i have no clue how to enforce it.
