Hi Patrick,

I have a solution for build only the libindi libraries. The only problem with cmake, is you cannot specify others file that cmakelist.txt. So, you must modify the cmakefile.txt. while do that, you'll have a problem for do a git pull for the update. I suggest to do follow instruction :
1) copy your indi directory to an other (ex : indi2). With that, you save your indi directory and you'll could do the update has when you want.
2) in this indi2 directory, modifiy the CMakeLists.txt like that :
in the build section (~line 83), add an option :

OPTION (INDI_BUILD_OTHERS_DRIVERS "Doesn't build others drivers" OFF)
In the beginning of the AGENT GROUP (~line 567) add
IF (INDI_BUILD_OTHERS_DRIVERS)
and just before the INDI TOOLS (~line 1875)
ENDIF (INDI_BUILD_OTHERS_DRIVERS)
3) save the file
4) make a build directory and do a cmake [options] .. follow by a make -j4

You compile only the indiserver and some tools and libindi* necessaries.

I know, is a ugly solution because, if you want to update indi, you will must redo this procedure (and maybe that the cmakelists file will be modify and the lines number different).

Picard created a new topic ' Remote graphics connection' in the forum. 2 months ago

Hi,

I would like to share with you an (very good) alternative to X11vnc (Linux environment only). Her name is X2Go. He enable graphic connection like x11vnc/Remmina to a remote machine. I don't know for you, but for me, x11vnc was a calamity. I loosed the connection every time (windows freezing), some widgets doesn't appears (I could not display the camera tab on the brain menu on phd2), it was very slow, .... I didn't speak about Kstars, the screen refresh was disaster.
I had give up the idea to remote connect with graphics interface.

But since I use X2go, I can connect through wifi to my raspberry pi 4 and is very fluid and very stable. All applications display correctly, without graphics bugs.

If you have some problems with X11vnc, visit the X2go website ( X2GO ).

Picard replied to the topic 'Very unstable Raspberry Pi' in the forum. 9 months ago

Hi Adrien,

what's the pi model ? I'm use since 2 (or 3)years a pi (3 and now 4) for controlling mount, camera, focuser, gps, ... without problem. But always through the ethernet connection (with a cpl box). I controlling my mount with Bluetooth.

I noticed with my pi3, that the wifi connection wasn't very speed and is for this reason i didn't used. I suggest you, in the fist time, to test directly with an ethernet cable.

Hi,

you could use the cmake directive -DUSE_SYSTEM_LIBINDI=1 like this :

cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DOPENSOURCE_ONLY=1 -DUSE_SYSTEM_CFITSIO=1 -DUSE_SYSTEM_LIBUSB=1 -DUSE_SYSTEM_EIGEN3=1 -DUSE_SYSTEM_LIBINDI=1 ..

Make sure you have define in LDFLAGS the complet path to the libindi (ex : export LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/lib").

I just tested, and that work fine (i only tested with indi simulator).

Picard created a new topic ' ZWO FWUpdate fail (core dumped)' in the forum. 12 months ago

Hi,

I just had a Datyson T7 color (asi 120 MC clone). Like most people know now, we must "flash" with a compatible firmware for working on linux. I downloaded form ZWO website the fwupdate program. But, sadly, for an unknown reason, the program crash (code dumped). I try to launch with root, but i have the same issue. I checked the libs inside the program with ldd for verifying that is use the good libs.

If anyone had the fwupdate program, could you test it ?

I am on ubuntu 20.04.02, kernel 5.4.0-77

Thx.

Picard created a new topic ' misplaced meridian ?' in the forum. 1 year ago

Hi,

i would like to know if anybody meet the same issue.

in my understanding of the local meridian placement, he must go from north to south passing through north pole. But when i look into the kstars sky map my meridian is misplaced and the transit time of stars doesn't match with the cross line. I have mean 90 seconds of shift.
