64bit Astroberry was created by simont

I've just read on the forum that starting from version 3.6.1 kstars will no more be available on ARM32 due to compile issues www.indilib.org/forum/ekos/12389-kstars-...ter-32bit.html#86727

Does this mean that Astroberry is dead, or a 64bit version is coming?

we need to redo all the work to build a brand new system. is not possible upgrade a 32bit system to a 64bit. actually i am tring to do this but RaspbianOS aftter some updates and indi packages not boot up. I am tring to resume a previous 64bit image and check all and add some others feataures that i made to the standard system.

So, as the previous KStars verions also this 3.6.1 is NOT STABLE, there are some issue reported here invent.kde.org/education/kstars/-/milest...stones/14#tab-issues and all the other that are reported by the users

I'm not speaking about DIY compiling of kstars for Raspbian 64bit, but about the future of the ready-to-go Astroberry distro. Any info about that? Is there some ongoing work on that, or Astroberry will stop here?

Are KStars/INDI packages for Raspbian 64bit being built right now?

Actually in Astroberry repo I can see some arm64 packages. But if system is ready or not, I think only Radek can answer....

Just in case anyone is interested...

I have been able to install Raspbian 64bit (bullseye); I then added astroberry repo.
That way I was able to install PHD2 and kStars (bleeding: 3.6.0) which are in the astroberry repo.

At first, kStars crashed, but following a trick I found in a german forum in which they where discussing this installation (www.indilib.org/forum/astroberry/12390-6...rry/reply/86978.html), I removed kstars-bleeding, installed the standard kStars in raspbian, started it with a simulator profile, and then installed again kstars-bleeding - it worked!

Anyway, I'm still configuring the system but it seems to work, and without compiling a thing.

I don't know whether the packages are being built right now, the 3.6,0 64bit version I got installed corresponds to Build: 2022-08-27T18:31:54Z


Regards,

Jordi.

The info on how to get INDI for Raspbian is outdated. Simply use
wget -O - https://www.astroberry.io/repo/key | sudo apt-key add -
sudo su -c "echo 'deb https://www.astroberry.io/repo/ bullseye main' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/astroberry.list"
sudo apt update
sudo apt install indi-full kstars-bleeding
and kstars installs fine on Raspberry OS 64 bit.

However, running it turned out to be problematic:
$ kstars

org.kde.kstars: Welcome to KStars 3.6.0 Stable

So I copied the ~/Library/ApplicationSupport/kstars directory from my MacBook to ~/.local/share/kstars on the Raspberry Pi and now it's working.
