Thank you Jasem
This is not enough : with LGPL, even if code isn't changed you must mention copyright and licence !
And anyway ASIAIR is using modified code of indi ...
(small/tiny little proof in attachment)
Jasem, I would really like to know what you think about this subject
Hardware is another question, indeed
(btw : Asiair contains RPi CM with additional board and original OS is Raspbian)
I'm not sure how to approach this subject, but I would love to have a discussion with you about ZWO's use of Indi and other opensource software.
I asked a question on their forum, but I think we'll have a freer point of view here.
Here is what I asked them:
The pro version uses opensource software: is this the case on "Plus" version?
If so, by what means do you intend to fulfill the obligations of opensource licenses?
At least the publication of modified code for the LGPL2.1 associated with indi, wich pro version obviously uses for mount control.
There would also be PHD2 / astrometry.net and possibly Stellarsolver, as well as other components further out of astrophotography.
The least thing would be to mention the use of opensource software somewhere, but we can't find any mention of that.
(and to publish modified code at least for indi)
What do you think ?
Sorry, wrong screenshot on my previous post (taken from master)
here is 1.8.9 version - problem is the same
i think this is the piece of code related to this behavior
this is awsome
"For the record"
Option to build baseclientqt is "INDI_BUILD_QT5_CLIENT"
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug -DINDI_BUILD_QT5_CLIENT=ON ..
When i install libindi-dev to play with code, header and library basclientqt are missing
The workaround is to build and install indi with special option (wich i don't remember ATM)
But is ther any reason for that ?
Obviously yes !
