Typically, you don't have to download any drivers when using INDI, unlike ASCOM/Windows. For Ubuntu, most of the drivers you would need are included in the PPA and can be installed as prebuilt binaries with just an install command. For Raspbian and other systems that don't have a PPA, INDI needs to be built. My script should build all of INDI and the 3rd Party INDI drivers. INDI-Webcam should be built along with all the other INDI drivers when the INDI 3rd Party build is done. Are they not built along with the others? I can check that.

Thanks for the reply. Indi-webcam was not built, I don't believe. I found the indi-webcam in AstroRoot/indi/3rdparty and followed your instructions on the indi-webcam link I posted earlier. I had to install some other libraries for FFMPEG. libavcodec-dev and libavdevice-dev.
That seemed to do the trick and I was able to make and install indi-webcam.
Managed to get a profile in ekos with indi-webcam and see a stream from my cam so I am on my way. But man is it ever complicated.
Quite a steep learning curve, there is so much in it.

Oh shoot. I will need to add an ffmpeg install to the raspbian script. I assume it had the latest version of ffmpeg. Silly me. Will do.

As I said the script is a work in progress . . . but feedback like that helps to get it refined.

Hi - I am trying out your script on a RPi4 with Raspian, but I get these error messages, what do they mean?

Cheers,

Here is a 10 minute stress test of my Pi4 in a FLIRC case running the Stellar Mate beta OS. Never rising above 56c, this is better than my 'active' cooling case with a fan.

That's the idle temp? Seems high. I idle at 41c and it took pegging the 4 cores at 100% for ten minutes to get to 56c

I can't recommend this case enough. It's made by one dude in California who quit his job to just machine these cases.

I see from the screenshot memory utilisation at 22.6% or 884.2 MiB.
Is this what KStars and INDI use?
Would a 2GB Pi4 be enough?

I would personally recommend 4Gb if you can get it. It will help with handling incoming images/FITS files. Avoid the use of a swap partition if you can as it is hard on SD cards. With only 2 GB ZRam could be implemented to make up a shortfall.

I agree with lhoujin. My experience with Ekos over the past 2 years is “the more memory, the better”.

All of my pis have zram enabled, no matter which os they are running. My pi 4 is 4gb and has zram enabled giving it close to 8gb ram effectively
