EKOS Crashes a lot Randomly most likely due to FitsViewer

Hi Jasem,

I came across an issue with EKOS the other day. It crashes a lot, very randomly. I narrowed it down to exposure downloads. The log is spammed with "[ org.kde.kstars.fits] - Reading FITS file buffer" until it finally crashes.
I was able to reproduce it in the latest nightly yesterday with the simulator. I need to resolve the issue, because I'm worried that the sensor in my camera will crack from thermal shock every time this happens.

I hope, I am screwing something up and you can help. Logs attached!

All the best and thanks in advance,
Florian

Please run KStars via gdb so we can get a useful backtrace.
gdb -ex run kstars

then run KStars as usual, if it crashes, go back to the console and type in bt to get the backtrace then post it here.

OK thanks!

Will do it and run it tonight to see what comes up. I've muted audio and enabled limited resources mode in FITS viewer in the mean time, and now I can't reproduce it with simulators anymore. I am, also planning to install Zram if this doesn't work, to see if it makes a difference as I suspect this may be an out of memory error.

Sorry for the late reply Jasem,

I have been trying for the last week to get a backtrace. Unfortunately I haven't managed to, or I don't think so. I don't get anything when typing bt. You can see in the screenshot attached below. The log doesn't have any useful information either, no specific reason or sign of a crash. I am clueless as to what this might be, but I want to solve the issue, because my setup is so unreliable this way, that I'm practically afraid to run it and crack my sensor from thermal shock.

It shows the program existing normal hence no backtrace.. it didn't crash above.

Thanks! So then it's probably a system related issue? Like a system process stopping Kstars? Surely there wasn't anybody around to press close.
