Although I ended up just re-running the script, it seems inefficient for rebuilding only KStars. Good news is it resolved the crashing.


That’s good news. Note that rerunning the script actually isn’t that inefficient because it doesn’t do most of the things again once they are already done, it just checks and prints a message saying it’s done already.

I do plan to take the rebuild code out of the main script and put it in a separate subscript so it can be run separately if you want to rebuild the Astro software again. It will still be run by the main script but there would be the option to just run that.

If you want to see the steps just look in the script. I have loads of documentation explaining it.

I’m not done with the Manjaro script yet. I wouldn’t recommend it yet. There were build errors in KStars and INDI. It is related to building certain drivers in 64 bit. I got some of it corrected in the INDI repo now, but I have to do a complete rebuild make some changes so that it can build from scratch to see if it is fixed.

But it would be nice to know what happened

I just tried rebuilding again and tried various ways of connecting, starting INDI, and running KStars. I can't get it to crash like you described. I am testing this on the Raspbian computer after running setupAstroRaspbianPi.sh.

I tried starting KStars and running the Simulators profile. I tried starting the INDI Web Manager App and connecting to that from KStars. I tried connecting from my laptop over wifi with KStars o the laptop and INDI running on the Pi. And I tried it with a direct ethernet cable. I can't get it to fail.

“An instance of INdI server is already open, do you want to close before opening another”

and no matter if I click yes or no it just shuts Kstars completely down every time...
Any ideas..


I have just encountered the same issue. Everything was fine at first. But now when I try to run a profile from EKos, KStars crashes.
I have been configuring various things in the meantime so I am not sure when it broke.


Are both of these on a Raspbian system, or is there another OS involved?

Are you trying to start a profile with the simulators or something else on the same machine or another machine? Any specific drivers ?

Also, the IP address is now checked when installing Link Local, so you can't end up with a situation like Ihoujin reported.

Perhaps this is a better solution?

I can try to implement that on Wednesday.

Ihoujin,

The modem manager removal is restored.

Correct, volumes should not mount automatically because that interferes with the ability to connect to a number of cameras. Please see this for details:

Unless there is a better way to solve this problem that I don't know about?

Nope, weird.. it was in my steps that I had listed in 2017, but it is missing from the first iteration of the automated script. I don't remember any reason for why I would have removed that step. I can put it back.

Yes, modem manager being removed used to be a part of the script. I can go check that it is. It certainly should not have been installed during the script run, but some other program may have it as a dependency. I can check.
