It seems to have stopped now. So my annoyance was a bit premature! :-)

Yes, it helped with the log, so thanks. Unfortunately it only shows that it is crashing.

On my Mac, before Ekos would connect to the mount correctly, I had to set port speed. But that is set in the driver page, and as it is crashing here, I do not have that opportunity. Can I edit this manually before starting?

My Pi is powered via its ow supply. My SSD is in the Pi case, and is powered off of the Pi's USB 3 port (the case is designed to use a USB connector that connects the USB of the SSD to the Pi). Then I have a Powered USB hub for my devices.

The case is the Argon ONE M.2 case.

I'm just getting set up.  I'm using KStars and Ekos.  This all works on my Mac laptop.  I'm now trying to get this working with an Astroberry setup.  Everything works there except the mount.  Every time I try to connect, the eqmod driver crashes in a loop.  All other devices connect.

I'm looking for where I can find information on the crash.  If I look in syslog, I just see a generic failure message.

Would someone point me to the correct log file for more information?  Or how to troubleshoot the connection from the command line?

Thanks.

It could be a power issue. Check the hub's power supply. If it is one of the cheap ones, it'll be 5 volt. The better ones are 12 volt and 5 amp or so,

As an aside, I just setup a new Pi 4 with SSD, and used a Pi case that held the SSD. Works very well.

That the captcha is used to only to log in, but on every single form post or response, is a gross abuse and ridiculously poor user experience.
