I was looking into purchasing one of these and wanted to know if this device is supported yet in INDI/Ekos?

Not currently, but I contacted the MBOX folks for information.

And we have official support for it now: indilib.org/devices/weather-stations/mbox-meteostation.html
in tomorrow update, it should appear in INDI/Ekos.
Martin from astomi.ch was very helpful!

Hi Martin and others,

cool to see MBox driver for INDI. To be honest I use the driver also for interfacing the Stickstation (as I still have one). In a first EKOS start the driver crashed, could be connected afterwards again and runs fine. Attached parts of the log file. Hope this helps:

The crash was also reported by Martin but I didn't get any backtraces thus far. Do you happen to have a backtrace via GDB?

Hi knro,

sorry about, but have no GDB on the system (don't build it right away). If you can tell me how to get the log, I try.

Another topic: The driver is mentioned a General Driver und DRIVER INFO, but from my point of view should be a weather driver. Does that make sense ?

Good catch, fixed! I will also receive MBox soon so I would be able to investigate any remaining issues.
