Looking at INDI Stable builds, it's already v0.7: code.launchpad.net/~mutlaqja/+recipe/indi-starbook-stable

Hi Jasem, Thanks for the reply....unfortunately the new version does not work on the laptop or the raspi 3B+. Both are running ubuntu mate 18 (have tried both 32 and 64 bit versions). I've also tried astroberry server, and still the same problem. I get the [ERROR] map::at. I have an old pc running mate 18.04.2 x86_64 and version 0.5 works fine.... Is there a way to install v0.5 on a newer library, or is the a link to a v177 indilib.git that I can compile from source.
Thanks and clear skies

This is probably something trivial to fix. Enable DEBUG logging (see my signature) and attach the logs.

Hi Jasem, here are the logs as requested. The PC log is an older install that upgraded to v0.7 of the driver a couple of weeks ago, and the Raspi one is a fresh 'bleeding' install this afternoon.
Many thanks

Can you compile from source? I just pushed some code to indi-starbook that _might_ help, but not sure. There needs to be a lot more error checking than exists now in the driver. At any rate, try to compile from source and report back if it makes any difference.

Hi Jasem,
it almost works on the 'old' install... Compiled from source. The one problem that happens now, is that in the site info, latitude needs long, and long needs lat? if I put the data in correctly, my home position of west 0°dec suddenly appears in the southern hemisphere, and if I inverse the data, it starts correctly? very strange....
thanks again for your help

The site location is automatically updated. If it driver is no longer crashing now, can you post the logs as well? I need to check it out to make sure everything is OK.

Hi Jasem, worked like a dream.....many thanks, hope it helps other users out.... I found that the driver crashes when you ask the scope to park..just after the command is issued, ekos/ indi indicates a driver crash. the scope keeps on moving to the home position. I've included the log file from the latest trial..
thanks again,and clear skies..
