AstroPi3 Scripts revised

Thank you so much for the continued work on the AstroPi3 script. I used it flawlessly last week to install everything on my new Raspberry Pi 4 (4GB) and it went off without a hitch.
I noticed that a new version of indi library was released yesterday, and was wondering what the process is for updating kstars / indi libraries etc. as new versions are rolled out? Is it possible to rerun the script to get the system to download latest code and then it will automagically rebuild indi library / kstars etc?

So if you are using it on a Raspberry Pi 4 with Raspbian, you can just run the script again. If you are using Ubuntu-Mate, you can click my "software update" icon in the utilities folder. It will run an update script. I haven't revised it to update everything for Raspbian yet.

A standalone script specifically for updating indi/kstars would be good to have on raspbian.

Yep, so basically my plan will be to take the section of the script devoted to building kstars/INDI and make a separate script specifically for that. It's really the same code that already exists in the script, it just means taking it out and copying it into a new script. The new script would also have the system update that the system update script does. I will get to that soon, I have had a lot of other things to do.

Thanks a million, I ran the systemUpdater script first and am now re-running the setupAstroRaspbian script to do the git pull and rebuild of kstars & indi which seems to be doing its thing just fine :)

Should we expect a significant performance improvement? I am now running my AP system on an RPi4B2GB in a flirc case which keeps the temperature nicely stable around 35°-40° outdoors. Performance is already amazing me and astro friends with typical Ekos alignment solves at around 10 seconds.

In order to change from a 32 bit to a 64 bit system much more is needed than a 64 bit kernel. All libraries and compiled applications need to be changed as well. I’d recommend sticking with the 32 bit system if the performance is good or do a completely new system install.

One word of caution. Jasem is currently working today/tomorrow (not sure how long?) on splitting the INDI repo into libindi and 3rd Party. Once he finishes that, I will update all my build scripts, but I will wait until he says it is done. I'm not sure if this will break the current scripts or not

Ok I believe I have fixed the scripts to work with the new split repo structure of INDI.

Enjoy!

Nice! I suppose the split repo will be announced in due time? It is not in the Download section of the website. Yet I suppose...
