It all works nicely… until I unplug the Raspberry Pi by accident and it doesn't start anymore. The reason why it doesn't start anymore is that the OS on which Stellarmate is built is a GUI-based OS.
What happens after a hard reboot is that, at times, it requires a fsck to be performed, but it won't do it all by itself. It's gonna to ask. One needs to type Ctrl-D, because it expects to be plugged to a monitor and a keyboard since it's a desktop environment.
Thus my question, is there a simple, no-fail, INDI server out there that won't let me down if I unplug the power cable by mistake? I don't care about any GUI interface on the device that runs the INDI server, I never use it. GUIs suck.
