The asi-driver crash on openSuse was caused by libasi. I compiled and installed only libasi from sources and now it works, even with the drivers from Astrophotography_Software repository.

Interesting! I may test TW on one of the RPI since openSuse has been the dist of my choice since years ago

I used to compile from sources, but now I simply use the Astrophotography_Software repository for both Leap and Tumbleweed.
I will compile kstars, indilb and indi-3party from sources again just to verify.

So Tumbleweed works fine on RPI? How do you deal with all updates?

Thanks!

No, I run Ubuntu Mate on the Raspberry PI's and openSuse on my PC's.
However, I replaced the libASICamera2.so.1.25 with the previous one as described in your link and now my Raspberry PI's works fine again :) !

There seems to be a similar problem on the openSuse, both Leap 15.4 and Tumbleweed, but they are of less concern for me right now.
I will look into that later.

Thank You very much for Your help !

Running Kstars 3.6.0 and indilib 1.9.7 on Raspberry PI (Ubuntu Mate 22.04) the indi_asi_ccd driver crashes silently immedialtly after start:
[2022-08-04T16:23:57.920 CEST CRIT ][ org.kde.kstars.indi] - INDI driver "indi_asi_ccd" crashed!
No more info!


Running the same on openSuse 15.4, the log says:
[2022-08-04T15:56:47.968 CEST DEBG ][ org.kde.kstars.indi] - INDI Server: "2022-08-04T13:56:47: Driver indi_asi_ccd: [17780,17780 ASIGetNumOfConnectedCameras]: ASIGetNumOfConnectedCameras >>"
.....

[2022-08-04T15:56:47.968 CEST CRIT ][ org.kde.kstars.indi] - INDI driver "indi_asi_ccd" crashed!

Any idea?

Ah, of course! Stupid me tongue.png! I never thought of pressing Play button.
Now it works. 

Thanks!

I wanted to start the scheduler at a specific time the other night, but no, nothing happened so I had to start the job manually later.
No job constraint (Alt, Moon, Twilight etc...) was set up.

 



I have tested with the simulator also, same problem.

It is definitely in the Kstars log:

I have been running Raspberry PI 4 with Kstars 3.5.5 and indilib 1.9.2 with the same problem. I installed Kstars 3.5.6 and indilib 1.9.3 from sources. Still the same problem.
However, it works on my PC/laptop running Kubuntu 20.04, also on Opensuse Leap 15.3, so it seems to be an environment problem.
I ended up installing Ubuntu Mate on the RPI 4 with the latest Kstars/indilib from repositories, and now it works.

So that may be the quickest/easiest solution for you?

Thanks Hy!

About the timestamp, ok, I will do that!

No I don't run StellarMate, i have my own configured Rasbian with all needed software, including compiling sources.
Apart from the missing data in analyze-file (and som chrashes) it works OK.

I think I will test an Ubuntu also instead of wasting time on my homecocked solution!

I guess you run everything on the Raspberry PI, Kstars, Ekos and indilib? Do you access using a VNC-viewer or similar?

I am running Kstars 3.5.6 and indilib 1.9.3 on a Raspberry PI 4 with a Rasbian 10 (buster) OS

1. I don't get the lights filename, the numstars, hfr, median etc in the analyze-file.

This is part of the analyze-file (from a testrun with the cap on):
    CaptureComplete,212.906,5.000,UVIR,-1.000,,-1,-1,-1.000

and this from the log-file:
    [2021-11-27T13:57:11.885 CET INFO ][           org.kde.kstars.indi] - "FITS" file saved to "/home/hwa/Sessioner/M81/M_81/Light/UVIR/M81_Light_UVIR_5_secs_2021-11-27T13-57-11_006.fits"

On my laptop running Kubuntu 21.04 and same versions, it works.


2. Is it possible to get a timestamp in the analyse-file, like in the logfile?
    2021-11-27T13:57:11.885,CaptureComplete,212.906,5.000,UVIR,-1.000,,-1,-1,-1.000

This would make it easier to join rows.

* What are the (official) repositories for latest stable indilib and Kstars?
* Are there any "preferred" OS-environment that stable versions are being tested agains?

I am asking because I have been running Kstars/Ekos and indilib on a Raspberry Pi 4
for more than a year now:

  • Environment: Raspberry PI OS 10 (buster)
  • Repository: "www.astroberry.io/repo/ buster main"
  • Kstars/Ekos: 3.5.5 Stable
  • Indilib:     1.9.2

I run everything on the RPI using a VNC-viewer on my laptop accessing the RPI wireless.

During an evening-session Kstar/Ekos can crash more than once so it not as stable
as I would like.

Also, there is still no update to Kstars 3.5.6 and indilib 1.9.3
from the astroberry.io-repository (at least not yesterday).
