Duh. I just saw you posted it right in your reply. Guess I should read more closely. :)

Thanks for the replies guys. Does anything have to be modified to use the ASIPower driver? I seem to recall something about some config.txt modification in the past that may have been necessary to get the power ports functional under standard linux on the Pi. Not sure if this applies to the StellarMateOS version though.

Hello,

I have both the StellarMateOS and an ASIAir Pro appliance.  I love the form factor of the ASIAir Pro but miss the lack of vendor support for focusers and accessories.  I am pretty sure the StellarMateOS will work on the ASIAir Pro hardware but I think the 4 12v power ports would either be unusable or non-configurable under StellarMateOS.  Since one of my setups has a Moonlite focuser and Xagyl filter wheels, I was wondering if there was some way to enable the use of those integrated power ports in the ASIAir Pro with StellarMate OS installed.  I can certainly live without the capability and I could control the power directly if needed, but it would be convenient if it could be done via StellarMate.

My questions are::

1 - Is it confirmed that StellarMateOS will run on the ASIAir Pro?  I understand it would not be 'supported' per se but I wanted to make sure it would in fact work.

2 - Is there any way to configure StellarMateOS to recognize and control the integrated 12v power ports on the ASIAir Pro?  I suspect that the ASIAir probably has some config.txt foo that enables the ports via the GPIO but am unsure if this is the case. 

Any input on this would be appreciated.

Is there any solution to the indi-aagcloudwatcher-ng package dependency problem? I am unable to update the indi-full package because it says that the indi-aagcloudwatcher-ng package is uninstallable. I don't particularly like the idea of having to update the distro on the various systems I have indi on just in the hopes of getting around this problem.

The Orion Sirius Pro does have encoders. I am making an assumption that the Skywatcher AZ-EQ5 also has them as it is nothing more than the Skywatcher version of the Orion Sirius Pro.

Hi there,

I haven't had this problem in quite some time actually. If I remember correctly, I reset the mount to defaults and removed the mount config from kstars and re-added it. I think in my case something in the saved config file was horked.

No worries. I figured I would let you know before your inbox blew up. :)

When I try to install indi-avalon, I get the following:

FYI - the x86-64 version fails to install with an error on indi-avalon now.

Ok. So this will likely be in the repos later today or tomorrow yes?

It looks like this package is missing across the board. I see that my intel machines can not update indi-full because the indi-starbook package is missing. Any idea when this could be resolved?

I dusted off my Asus Tinkerboard and decided to update the INDI and Kstars packages on it but it fails to install with unmet dependencies for indi-starbook. Trying to install indi-starbook seperately reveals that there is no installation candidate. Was this not ported over to the ARM tree?
