I flashed a card with a fresh copy of Astroberry and confirmed it did not crash. Once updates were installed this crash behavior returned.

I noticed tonight GPhote CCD and Canon DSLR drivers began to crash when receiving images captured in FITS. They still receive Native format images just fine.
FITS images captured with ZWO CCD are fine. I wonder if there is a bug in the conversion from DSLRs in recent updates, as it was working just fine recently.

I think if there are any interface changes to be made, it would be to unlink some of the windows from KStars.
For example the DSLR image viewer is tied to the main KStars window. It can not be moved to a different workspace or minimized without affecting KStars along with it. Other windows that exhibit this behavior include: Find Object, Observation Planner, What's Up Tonight... Virtually everything that can be opened form the menu bar.
Some of these would be nice to put aside without closing them to get access KStars. Also you can not use more than one such window at a time as the newest ones lock the rest.

Excellent. It's reassuring that this is not a special case, which would be harder to troubleshoot. I look forward to the next release. Thank you.

Sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Then you'll probably have to do ' -f install ' if prompted to to fix the ASI driver.

I am trying to configure my toolbars with some added icons, but the changes aren't getting applied. Any thoughts?

OK. Upgraded Modemmanager is definitely involved. Although I do not have a full understanding as to its purpose, I decided to remove the program in its entirety. After rebooting, EQMod was once again communicating with the mount through Bluetooth.

After performing a normal update, EQMod continues to work with my HC-05 bluetooth mount interface.
It is something applied during a dist-upgrade which introduced connection issues. It has to be related to one of these upgrades.

I just did a fresh install of Astroberry Server, and I've found that Bluetooth works without a hitch when manually bound. But something later broke it after updating the system.

I just got around to reassembling my BT adapter. Curious things happened. Initially I had difficulty connecting, it turned out to be bluetooth manager taking taking ownership of the device. You can check for this

sudo fuser /dev/rfcomm0
Take the ID number
ps -p 3550
This will tell you what is using the /dev/rfcomm0. And is behind the failure to connect to port errors.
So this trick is to manually bind the device, but not connect to it. It appears to connect automatically when the mount driver is initiated.

At this stage I was making a connection, but it randomly would disconnect giving a TTY read write error when a command was given. I tried some of the other advice given, and that stopped happening, but now all inputs I give trigger a yellow light in the INDI console and does nothing.
Oddly enough one time it behaved itself. But failed after a simple restart of the INDI server.

I Just installed this myself with little difficulty.
To the file /etc/default/gpsd add the line

# Devices gpsd should collect to at boot time.
DEVICES="dev/ttyS0"

# Other options you want to pass to gpsd
GPSD_OPTIONS="-b -n"

Also for system clock synchronization to the file /etc/ntp.conf
add to the end

My guess as to why it didn't work in rc.local is the absence of the trailing & character

Well I can't be sure if my problem was hardware or software because I rebuilt the device, and encountered frustrations.
I don't recall the full syntax reasoning if the 1. But the trailing & is required to allow the Pi to continue to complete the boot, because commands in rc.local are run at boot time and will hang on them while waiting.

The last time I tried my Bluetooth adapter was after I remade it. I encountered the bug and left it at that for the time being, assuming I made a mistake. But perhaps there is a bug?

Andrew replied to the topic 'EKOS Scheduler - repeat all jobs possible ?' in the forum. 1 month ago

Just a thought. But one strategy/feature may be to create nested jobs? Such that the parent job is repeated under one set of completion conditions with the child jobs following independent conditions.
Advantages of this strategy would help organize large job lists, perhaps expanded to include mosaic jobs as childs of the parent job instead of many separate jobs.

Will this abort exposure automatically? Say in the event of a sequence abort, such as from a guide failure. Or while disconnecting devices?
