DIYMall GPS and Astroberry GPS crashes INDI_rpigps #37362
Hello,

I am running on a Raspberry PI 3 B+ with 128G. I have added a GPS device from DIYMALL said to be Linux compatible. Astroberry GPS is a Driver in KSTARS. When Starting ASTROBERRY GPS. KSTARS crashes with detected indi_rpigps crashed.

The error is :
indi_rpigps : error while loading shared libraries: libgps.so.22: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

Where is the libgps.so.22 located?

Don't use Astroberry GPS. It's obsolete.
Use official INDI GPS instead indilib.org/devices/auxiliary/gps.html

BTW. where did you get Astroberry GPS from??? I think I removed it 2 years ago ;-)

DIYMall GPS and Astroberry GPS crashes INDI_rpigps #37374
Hello,

Where did I get Astroberry GPS? It came with the download and is part of the Astroberry OS for PI. Sudo apt-get update, then Sudo apt-get upgrade are the options to go from Denaili 16.04 to 18.04. I got the OS stable. I am in the middle of the testing all of my equipment.

At first I attempted to use the GPS Simulator. At first use to test, my site (Commander Pro on iOS), was in direct conflict with the Simulator. A simulator is just that. I was looking to see if Kstars was talking to all devices.

Under Kstars, I sought a better solution as I see the DIYmall device pinging away. The DIYmall is a supported Jackson Device. I found Astroberry GPS as the last entry for Ancillary devices. Cool. But, now I find it is obsolete. Under Kstars, including GPSD includes the GPS Simulator. Is KStars talking with the Jackson device? Not yet. What other options under KStars for GPS are there? How do I get rid of Astroberry GPS?

OK, I thought you compiled it yourself. It was removed from the sources some time ago.
Just ignore it and use GPSD. If you're using usb dongle you need to set proper serial port in /etc/default/gpsd, default is DEVICES="/dev/ttyS0" but this points to Raspberry Pi hardware serial.
Disconnect your GPS device, run "tail -f /var/log/syslog" in your terminal and connect the GPS. One of the lines will contain device port, such as /dev/ttyUSB0 or /dev/ttyAMA0 or similar. Use this port in /etc/default/gpsd
After restart your system should recognize GPS. Also review posts here on the forum for GPS USB dongles. There's quite a few of them which might be useful for you.

Hello Radik,

Thank you for the redirection. I used GPSD. To get it functioning I did the following:

1. I removed any symbolic links to any tty devices.
2. I recycled the PI
3. I unplugged each USB connection and set EQMount to Auto.

Everything lined up after that. Now, I get to wait for a clear night.
