Hello,

I just updated using

Use: sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade.

I then connected everything up and opened KSTARS with EKOS. I started my profile and everything works. I used the USB 2.0 ports. My two RSHTECH 3.0 hubs worked well. Cameras worked. Now, the next clear night is next week.

What version of Kstars have you got after the apt-get upgrade ?

This whole thread is about the latest version not being n the astroberry repository.

@wornish So as of a couple of hours ago, and thanks to your encouragement, I appear to have a working set up with KStars 3.5.0 (as reported from the Help setting) running on a fully updated Raspberry Pi OS booting from a Sandisk Extreme SSD. I have found a workaround for the USB ‘problem’ thanks mostly to trial and error after suggestions from @kross. The precise mechanism which sometimes means that lsusb doesn’t list Bus 001 devices, is as yet unexplained, but I am back to a situation where everything appears to be functioning again - the only changes being that a couple of the USB cables are plugged into different ports on the 7-port tp-link powered USB3.0 hub. So now I can struggle to get to grips with the new KStars features!

Hello,

Before the update, I was at 3.4.3. After the update, I was testing hardware. I was not concerned about version. I was happy to see rules working. I will verify the version and report back. Right now, it is packed up until the next clear day.

Thanks Wornish and Hy - followed both your details and I am now at 3.5.0

I note I had to use a different URL in the initial git pull - I just clicked on the URL and then copy and pasted what it actually resolved to.

Thanks!

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing: if 3.4.3 just got released, how can they have 3.5.0? That explains it.

With that said, what's new in 3.5.0 that didn't make it into 3.4.3? I am curious.

It's not 3.5.0, after releasing 3.4.3 Jaseem changed the version in the development source code to prepare for a 3.5.0 release, the version they have is just a few source code commits different from 3.4.3 and not to be considered stable.

okay. Will never want to upgrade mine to that 3.5.0 first. Unless you wish to solve issues the whole night. I am running on a stable version nowadays. :) Good luck guys.

Perhaps you could be a bit more constructive and help those of us who didn’t know we were compiling ‘indinightly’ to reach the stable version of 3.4.3? Many thanks in advance!

You want to look at the commits invent.kde.org/education/kstars/-/commits/master

Then go to the version that relates to the 3.4.3 release and clone that, rather than cloning the latest version in git.

They (the developers) don't appear to tag versions in git, but this is bleeding-edge kstars, so really, you're already running beta, even if not nightly.

Many thanks for the clarifications. I certainly would prefer not be be cutting edge! I now have a second SSD running the simple June Astroberry 2.0.2 image (KStars 3.4.2) which continues to serve me well.
