Thanks gilesco for the information!

Looks like medium to high risk that PHD2 won‘t run together with Ekos afterwards... at least for an unexperienced Linux noob like me.

Radek, what would you recommend?

Thx, Bernd

I've just done the build on my Pi4, all succeeded by the looks of it, and it didn't clobber the phd2 script, it in fact re-installed the script et all. Also currently installed library in /usr/lib/phd2 so looks like the install instructions on the link I gave pretty much exactly replaces the older phd2 on Astroberry.

2.6.7 working fine with Ekos 3.4.0 (simulators loaded in both phd267 and ekos).

Great, thanks a lot for testing it! So I will give it a try...

...

Works perfectly with the Ekos simulators set-up! Thx again

PHD2 v2.6.7 has been just pushed to astroberry software repository. You can get the latest version by running regular apt update && apt upgrade

That's good.

Query though, is there a reason that apt-file doesn't find the package that provides a particular file:
astroberry@indi:~ $ sudo apt-file search "/usr/bin/phd2.bin"
astroberry@indi:~ $

I normally use apt-file to find packages that provide a particular file.

It is apt-file question, not astroberry related. Maybe run the query without path i.e. apt-file search phd2.bin or update the cache sudo apt-file update

True, I have tried all those, also tried "--substring-match" option, without any joy.

Was just wondering whether it requires a file manifest or filelist file to be present in the repository.

Quick search, it appears apt repositories can have a "Contents" file (wiki.debian.org/DebianRepository/Format#A.22Contents.22_indices).

But if they don't then apt-file won't return results for that repo.

From Man page for apt-file:

BUGS, QUIRKS
...

· Not all APT repositories have Contents files. Notably common install media (CDs etc.)
may omit them to conserve space.
...

But, as you say, it's a apt-file issue, it's up to the maintainer to provide a Contents file (or not).

All clear now though.

Good point! Thanks for suggestion. Now the repository provides Contents index. This allows to find packages that provide a particular file, using apt-file.
Run "sudo apt update" to refresh index files and try "apt-file search" again.
