TOPIC: KStars crashes repeatedly - FITS-viewer associated?

KStars crashes repeatedly - FITS-viewer associated? 1 week 5 days ago #30270

Dear star-friends,

after ruling out my problems with parking my mount I tried to take a sequence of M31 yesterday.
My equipment is connected to a RasPi with StellarMate OS and everything (besides the Ubuntu-Version still beeing 16.0.4) is up to date.
The controlling KStars/EKOS is on my Laptop with Win10.

Unfortunately KStars crashed multiple times without an error, so that I had to re-initiate everything to restart the sequence. Later during the night the last crash went unnoticed, so that my sequence didn't finish...

Is there a logfile to search for a reason? And could it be the FITS-viewer, since I used it continously to view the frames taken and read about problems with it in an other thread?
Where should I begin my search for the problem?

CU & CS Chris

In case of the (very rare!) crashes I encountered I usually start KStars from the command line. Just open a terminal and type kstars and press enter. In case of a crash some info may be printed in the terminal but please note that this doesn't always happen.

Hello Chris,

Sorry about your troubles. I would presume your KStars is v2.9.8? Check my signature on how to send logs to diagnose any issues.

@Wouter/Jasem

Dear Wouter, dear Jasem,

thanks again for your quick response...
At the moment I'm in my office, but yes, it should be version 2.9.8.

Unfortunately it crashed minimum 5 times yesterday and what changed to my former tests was the intensive use of the FITS-viewer...
But since it just vanished out of nothing I didn't catch the exact moment to get a glimpse of what was going on.

I'm having a look in the logs this evening and send them to you, Jasem.

Keep up the great work (since after all KStars/Ekos is great work)...

Cheers & CS Chris

What camera did you use when you experienced the crash?
If your cam has pixels more than 24M, your problem may be the same as that I encoutered:

www.indilib.org/forum/ekos/3891-kstars-o...-large-fit-file.html

To avoid the crash, I set the resolution setting in the capture module of Ekos smaller, while setting the image-saving option in the INDI control panel as SD card. If you use a DSLR, this work-around would avoid the crash.

@koichi

I'm using the ASI 1600 MMC pro - so it's 16Mpix

But nevertheless I'm suspecting the FITS-file/viewer to be the culprit.

Just to get you updated, it's KStars 2.9.8.

The sky didn't allow me field experiments, but would you rather want me to test the 2.9.8 with verbose logfiles, or should I try a nightly release to see what happens???

Chris, I'd suggest nightly since we are getting close to this release.
