I hope that it works as a user in INDI and LINUX environments without problems.

Mr. Ecloud
Thank you for information.
Certainly Skychart could not install from deb file.

On Rpi 3 or Intel 64 bit machines it worked with firmware, but it was not available on this machine.

Did you work in your environment?

Products of Chinese vendors (QHY ​​and ZWO) feel that support of LINUX is not good.
(Although expensive, Lodestar works better.)

On the 64-bit Friendly Desktop (18.04), the problem of language environment has been improved by Nightly.

However, ASI120MC of ZWO which can be used in Rpi3 or other environments can not be used.
Unfortunately the support has also been terminated, so I think I can not use it in this environment.

In the 64-bit Frendly Desktop (18.04), the stability of x11 vnc was bad.
For that reason, we add -loop in the command at startup and restart automatically and use it.

In the 32-bit lubuntu, x11vnc was stable.

However, there was a problem of Kstar crashing when activating EKOS 's telescope control interface, so we are now using it back to 64 - bit Frendly Desktop (18.04).

Unlike Ubuntu, which is prepared by SBC, unlike Ubuntu which operates on Intel chip, most of the settings are necessary to use INDI + Ekos, VNC, Wifi etc without trouble.

Rpi 3 took time, but a stable environment was completed.

However, ARM's SBC has difficulty building the environment, but it has attractiveness such as the number of USB terminals and expandability.

I think that Nanopi will be an attractive product if it does so.
(Wifi 's AP setting etc was much easier than Rpi 3.)

The easiest thing is to build an environment with INTEL NUC.

In the Synscan application, switch between EQ mount and ALTAZ.

If you can choose the encoder count for each mount, you can correspond to various mounts.

The azimuth is 0 degree (true north)
The altitude is 0 degree (horizontal), it is the home position.

Since it is necessary to correspond also to the encoder, recognition of the encoder step implemented in the SkyWatcher - Alt - AZ driver, alignment subsystem etc are also required.

I changed the system to 32 bit lubuntu.

The results are as follows.

○ indicates no problem, △ indicates a slight problem, X can not be installed.

· Kstarsbleeding → ○
I had difficulty in setting, but the language environment also worked. It is necessary to adjust locale.

· SAMBA server → △
I just installed it did not work. It is necessary to set the sambaconfig file.

· AP setting of WIFI → ○
It was easy to set up with the system standard GUI.

· X11vnc → △
Setting up automatic startup was difficult, and it took time to make environment that can be used.
When you sleep you will need to set aside to sleep, as there will be a power outage.
In addition, it is necessary to set X dummy etc.

· PHD 2 → ○
It can be installed without problems.

· Open Sky Imager → x
I could not compile from the script and I could not install it.

· CCDCiel → ○
I could install without problems.

· Ciel Skychart → ○
I could install without problems.

o oacapturer → x
I installed it but I can not use the camera.

· Openssh server → ○
After installation, it was able to be used without problems.

· LinGuider → △
You can install but you need to set it up to start.

· ZWO driver → x

I used ASI120MC (compatible firmware installed), but it did not work with INDI, LinGuider, PHD 2.

● Overview
I switched from ARM 64 to 32 bit, lubuntu, but still some applications could not be used.

Again, I think that optimization of system and application is important for ARM CPU.
Currently there are many applications that 32bit, lubuntu can handle.

However, it takes more time to set up than Intel CPU OS.· CCDCiel → ○

Umm

Currently OSX and USB on ASI have started to work with Linux I think that the efforts of INDI driver developers were greater than the initial firmware improvements.

The correspondence to the UNIX type OS of Chinese vendors such as ZWO and QHY was not so good.

Since it already operates in other environments, please regard it as a report.

Mr. wvreeven

ASI120MC had a problem at the initial stage of Unix type OS, but it is somewhat unstable, but at present it is operating in most environments.

For ARM type CPU, it is 16.04 and it operates with 32 bit OS.
(RPi 3, OrengePi)

With the INTEL type CPU, it can also operate on 16.04 and 64 bit systems.

I also own a MAC.
At first, we did not correspond, but now it works with the efforts of the development team.

ARM 64 bit system, 18.04 Seems to be causing problems.
(There was something that could not install other astronomical software as well.
I wrote the result I installed on the thread of Nanopi M4. )

Because I built the environment, it is a 64 bit OS, 18.04.
However, it seems that optimization has not progressed yet in the ARM type SBC.

Although I have not tried it yet, 16.04, 32 bit OS is more likely to stabilize.

Summary

Trouble with NanoPi M4 (lubuntu 18.04, 64 bit OS)

1. I can not switch languages.
(Kde-l10, a driver necessary for switching such as language pack installed has been installed)

Because PHD 2 and other languages ​​are switched, I think that it is a problem of Kstar & Ekos. (There was a similar problem in the OSX version before.)

2. The ZWO driver does not work.

Confirmed with ASI120MC.
Regarding here, we also checked with LinGuider, PHD 2 with its own driver, but it did not work at all.

Since the system is 18.04, ARM 64 bit version, it seems that optimization is inferior to other environments.

I hope it will be fixed at the time of updating.

In comparison, Intel CPU Ubuntu is the most stable.

At ARM, RPi 3 is now stable, but at the beginning it was very unstable.

In this report, NanoPiM 4 (ARM 64 bit, lubuntu 18.04), ARM 64 bit version system and OS version is 18.04, I feel that correspondence has not advanced yet.

Firmware patch has already been applied.

It works on RPi 3 (ARM 32 Bit, Ubuntu MATE), Orengi Pi (ARM 32 Bit, Armbian), Beelink AP 34 (INTEL 64 Bit, Ubuntu 16.04), but it does not seem to work with the driver for ARM 64.
(Does it work on 64 bit system for ARM 64?)

When removing the HDMI monitor and displaying it with the HDMI dongle, the resolution problem was solved.

Language environment is fixed problem.
It does not solve the problem of the ZWO driver crashing.
