Are you trying to start a profile with the simulators or something else on the same machine or another machine? Any specific drivers ?

Simulators, natively within the Pi. But it also crashed with a custom profile.

Are both of these on a Raspbian system, or is there another OS involved?

I just tried rebuilding again and tried various ways of connecting, starting INDI, and running KStars. I can't get it to crash like you described. I am testing this on the Raspbian computer after running setupAstroRaspbianPi.sh.

I tried starting KStars and running the Simulators profile. I tried starting the INDI Web Manager App and connecting to that from KStars. I tried connecting from my laptop over wifi with KStars o the laptop and INDI running on the Pi. And I tried it with a direct ethernet cable. I can't get it to fail.

This is only on raspbian, as that uses the very latest build, my SM is ok as that just updates from a stable version, I have had it happen before, and when I re built it was fine, but have re built several times now and still the same.
Anyhow I now have the SM running well on the rpi 4 and have managed to configure it to run in 4K with and without a monitor attached over VNC, web based noVNC and Remote Desktop....so will stick with that now..as the lack of 4K was my reason for going back to raspbian...
So all good.... :)

It would, and I intend to find out, all I know is I had the issue before and Jasem sorted it, and all he did was re built it, and I Have tried that four times now...
Others I know have had the same issue yesterday, and rebuilt completely and all is now good...so maybe I will ha e to start from scratch with your script and re build.
It’s annoying as I altered your script to suit my needs and if I do a new git pull, it will undo all the changes I made... :(
I have been just re building Kstars and INdI, but think will have to do it all again...

I'm on raspbian. Raspberry Pi 4 and relearning how to go about things without PPA.
With that in mind, could I get advice on the steps required to rebuild kstars?
I had a hard time finding instructions on the forum.

You can’t use PPA with raspbian, you Have to build from Source....or use @rlancaste script, it’s excellent... :)

Yes. That was the point, Without PPA, what are the steps necessary to clean/rebuild Kstars from scratch.
Although I ended up just re-running the script, it seems inefficient for rebuilding only KStars. Good news is it resolved the crashing.
