Indi Support for Bullseye 64 bit RPI4

I see the OP has a few options by now.

I just thought to add that I was able to natively build INDI v1.9.3 with <em>some</em> INDI 3rd party drivers, stellarsolver v1.8 and finally KStars (github commit 6782a28d34d354ba1a73f173afeffbe0157bea15) on a Raspberry Pi 400 (4GB RAM) running Debian Buster Bullseye arm64.  I am novice and learning to use INDI/KStars; things seem to be working but I can't say I've tested thoroughly.

I went through each step manually, referring to the build instructions from each project as a guide.  It went smoothly, however I scribbled some notes that I think related to packages I had to install instead/in-addition-to some similarly-named ones in the instructions: kio-dev, libqt5datavisualization5-dev, libkf5notifyconfig-dev

My 4GB Pi ran out of RAM while making KStars with -j4, but succeeded on a retry with -j1.

Tim,

Any chance we can chat offline? I can follow (and understand) some of the procedures in doing a native install, but by no means an expert.. :-( Appreciate in advance!

Hi Jay,

do you have a spare SD card that you can use for a fresh Raspbian Bullseye arm64 install?  I would be glad to step through Jerry Black's script together over private message.  The only way I can see it working is if we start from the same place and work synchronously.

We might come up with some useful feedback for the script and arm64 build, and you should end up with a working environment and experience to go ahead and build specific projects yourself in future.

I'd be interested in what Jay did to get it working, so that I could tweak my script. I've installed the 32 bit Bullseye and haven't yet got it to work.
I did substitute qt5-default for qtbase5-dev qtchooser qt5-qmake qtbase5-dev-tools
# sudo apt-get install -y git cmake qt5-default libcfitsio-dev libgsl-dev wcslib-dev
sudo apt-get install -y qtbase5-dev qtchooser qt5-qmake qtbase5-dev-tools

I see there is an issue with libkf5newstuff which I haven't resolved yet.

Cheers
Jerry

Tim / Jerry,

Sounds like we have a quorum!!  :-)  I have extra MicroSDs so not a problem. I will hereby identify myself as the weakest link in this trio, but anxious to learn more.  Question becomes how to set this up?  Facebook chat, etc..  I am very appreciative.  We are faced with some of the Astroberry type apps also not being 64, but maybe with a working INDI things might come along.. Chief among them might be PHD2...  Astroberry installs the January version of 32 bit Buster...

No weak links mate, I'm sure we'll both learn something.

So I've uploaded a version of the script with just a few library changes that will allow it to compile. It fails to launch when it can't find TZData.txt in the spots where it searches. I'm sure this is close, but not there yet.

Any suggestions / fixes for getting it to create a running app, in the proper folder, making it find TZrules.dat and what-ever comes next. :)

Hi

A couple of things:

1 I have Bullseye 64 running RealVNC server without problems. All I did was select VNC under the Interfaces section of the

$ sudo raspi-config

GUI.

This was with the iso from 2021-10-30-raspios-bullseye-arm64.zip at

downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspios_arm_64...ios_arm64-2021-11-08

I have had some wifi issues with dhcp and have decided to stick with auto-configured dhcp, given the pi a network id and instructed the router to always give it the same ip address. That way I can set up a profile in vnc viewer to connect to the server, from which I can see what ip address the pi is using for ETH0. So far this has not changed, but you never know. And if all else fails there is always AngryIP scanner to have a look.

2 I am currently trying to download (well I was, now will try to compile) INDI for Bullseye 64. For the moment I only want the basic libs for use on the RPi as server.

Can someone explain how to run the sript and what it installs? Sorry i have not done this before in Rasberry /Debian, have just decided to convert my astro distro to Raspberry64. I use Manjaro for everything else. So a nudge in the direction of what packages are need to compile etc would be very helpful.

Best

Hi Richard,

if your browse around Jerry Black's Github page (already linked above) you should find an answer to what the script installs, as well as some helpful information on how to run it, with the various parameters ranging from "all" to the specific sections, if you would like to step through it. There is the readme text, as well as comments in the script itself. Studying these before you download/run it might be helpful.

As far as running the script, you will need to download it then rename it (replace the .txt extension with .sh). Your GUI file explorer program could do this. Then go to your terminal emulator and use your keyboard to interact. You will want to use the "cd" command (example only: "cd Downloads") to change your working directory to wherever you downloaded the script, and the "chmod" command (example only: "chmod u+x buildKstarsNightlyFromGit_Bullseye.sh") may be required to set the permissions on the script file to be executable.

Hope that helps.

I have own script that compile STABLE version of kstars from sources. You can try that. gitea.nouspiro.space/nou/astro-soft-build It  is tested on 32bit raspberry pi OS but should works just fine on 64bit as well.
Just run
git clone https://gitea.nouspiro.space/nou/astro-soft-build.git
to fetch scripts.

First time run ./install-dependencies.sh and then ./build-soft-stable.sh
