Solved the Link Local Ethernet failure.
I went back to the script , copied and entered these lines directly into the terminal;

nmcli connection modify "Wired DHCP Ethernet" ipv4.may-fail no
nmcli connection add type ethernet ifname eth0 con-name "Link Local Ethernet" autoconnect yes ip4 $IP/24

Ignored all of the advice about setting IPv4 in the client computer ethernet connection and set it all to auto

Used the Real VNC Vnc viewer and created a new connection ROCK64:0

And it works (but no internet )

A few things from the script failed to load. I think I manually installed Kstars again and set up shares for file access. So perhaps interruptions of some kind messed up the script in the first place.
Reentering the (possibly failed ) script elements manually seemed to work and saved setting up the PHD settings and calibration all over or editing out whole sections of the script and reloading.

Back to the night with the Tak and the HEQ5 and dithered mono subs minus the long cable .

HMM . Seems like I can not get internet on ethernet with these settings until i change the Ethernet back from IPv4 static address in the Rock64 to auto. But then no Link Local Ethernet. So it seems I can have ethernet and link local ethernet connections for the Rock 64 or ethernet and internet but not all three.

"In the new version, I put it in as a virtual network so that it shouldn't prevent ethernet from working with DHCP if you connect it to a router, but it will still keep the static IP running in the field if you need to connect to your laptop. At least this is my reasoning, have you found that this isn't true anymore?"
Is that the part in the script that mentions;

sudo --preserve-env bash -c 'cat > /etc/network/interfaces' <<- EOF
# interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)
# Include files from /etc/network/interfaces.d:
source-directory /etc/network/interfaces.d
# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
EOF

Maybe I could enter these lines in the terminal to ensure this is working?

With a little patience all working now. Just slow to respond swapping ethernet to link local and reconnecting.
Works with link local static IP Ipv4 and with wired ethernet automatic plus Ipv4 IP "alternate"
Wired ethernet providing internet now.

I'm guessing... are you compiling with a "-j x" option that exceeds you available memory? On a 4G Odroid, I've had to cut back my compile processes to -j2 it seems.

How to exclude this indi_rpicam when compiling indi_3rdparty????

This is something I found when I search for answers, www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=143539

Maybe someone can help up?

Thanks.

Tom, I think I agree with Jerry, the first issue is probably that your system probably ran out of available memory or something similar. Do you have the zram option enabled and is zram running? How many GB of ram do you have?

For the rpicam issue, when I first saw your post, I suspected that it was a recent change in 3rd party that caused the failure. I thought maybe rpicam had been recently added or recently changed to cause the issue, but I took a look and it hasn't been changed in about 2 months. So I am not sure I understand why it would have the wrong symbols. What system are you using, is it armhf, arm-64 or something else? I would think the best solution would be to submit a bug report to either the author or rpicam or to the 3rd party INDI drivers repo so that whatever issue there is with that driver, it can get fixed.

My script by default builds all 3rd party drivers based on this cmakelists: github.com/indilib/indi-3rdparty/blob/master/CMakeLists.txt. If you want to turn off the building of any particular driver, you can either edit the cmakelists.txt file, or you can change the cmake build command in the script to turn off the driver(s) you don't want.

Thanks Rob. Any guide on how to change the cmake build command in the script to turn off the driver(s) I don't want?

Actually, I am trying this Raspios arm64 image right now. downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspios_arm64/...os_arm64-2020-08-24/
