New Raspberry pi 4 anounced #41069
The argument against that is that there really only are KStars packages for Ubuntu which get built by Jasem. There are KStars packages for Raspbian and Debian but they are very old and don't contain the latest drivers etc. It is possible to build KStars and INDI yourself but that's tedious. See for instance

www.indilib.org/forum/ekos/5429-raspberr...all-indi-kstars.html

No arguments here...
I am using it now with latest full INdI and Kstars, built from Source, running nicely, headless using XRDP to control from windows laptop, this is the only way to get the full 4K video over Remote Desktop, it won’t k over any VNC versions, the max with those Is HD... :)

More significantly for us, Wimpress is pretty much the only one working on Ubuntu MATE's Pi support and he can only work on that when Canonical doesnt have him doing all sorts of other things. It was a lack of his time as well as some technical issues that made the Pi3b+ ubuntu mate image take so long to get out. I am sure he would love some help. . .

I agree - RPI3b+ was late (and some of us are still having problems with it using the Beta.2 :-( ) so how much later is RPI4 going to be if RPI3b+ isn't fully released yet. The guy has only so much time and compared to Raspbian seems to lack people resources.

Maybe Jasem has the same problem in supporting Raspbian versions ?

But at least Raspbian comes out with the new hardware - even if it still has a few problems.

If its a case of "someone" doing the donkey work to get a supported Raspbian version with automatic updates as per the present Ubuntu Mate (not compiling from some) I would stick my hand up to help in some way.

Frustrating I guess for all :-)

So what are my limitations now to using Raspbian with the Pi4 for dedicated Astro? The Pi4 4gig is sitting on my desk and I sort of just realized that the normal astro distro platforms like MATE won't be ready for awhile.

No limitations it does work very well....
It’s just updating that’s a bit more long winded....

Personally, I prefer it to Ubuntu Mate, but you need to build it yourself.

You have confused me. I don't have any hope of getting a Raspberry Pi 4 for a few months, but I assume that building INDI on it will work just fine. Is this not the case?

Sorry Paul, I misread your post, I read it as you said “I prefer Ubuntu mate but you have to build yourself” I missed the “it to”
Please accept My apologies.....my mistake..
Yes it all works well on buster, INdI and Kstars / Ekos..

At the moment only the Debian based Raspbian Buster is available for the Pi 4 and it works fine. The INDI library can be compiled and the indiserver can be accessed it remotely or you could setup a standalone system with some more effort.

Thanks to you two for your advice and opinions. I actually found a walkthrough on the Stellarmate FB group that I will have to use. It's been a long time since I played in Linux and when I did, that was just spinning up management VMs using CentOS and Ubuntu 16.04.

Here is the link for the walkthru.
