Are you guiding at a high sampling rate? With that scale, I wonder what the duration of each oscillation is?

Thanks Hy, I've updated the README.md file to highlight this dependency / difference in comparison to the standard install.

Hi,

That's unexpected. On my UbuntuMate 20.0.4 machine, I didn't have to run the script as root and /usr/share/kstars/ contains TZrules.dat
The /usr/local folder on this machine is owned by root, so I suspect you might would have to execute the script with a sudo to be able create things in that folder. The default ~ install probably? avoids this.

If you didn't already have a stable install of KStars on your machine perhaps that's why TZrules.dat is missing?  I'm just guessing here.

Sorry for adding to the complexities of a simple install.

Cheers
 Jerry

OK, thanks for reporting this. I may have fixed this during your compile run.

In addition, a subsequent update also set the -j3 compile option to be configured via a script variable.

yes, as described below by Grimaldi, it depends on the machine. On my 4G Odroid, with 2 G zram, there are a couple of groups of files which won't compile in parallel in the build with -j4, but everything compiles with -j3 for me.

OK, thanks. I think I've added those just now.

If I remember correctly, I used ApplePiBaker (on OS X) to make a backup of the SD card as a image/or zip file on the mac and then ran it again to copy from the backup and install on the SSD (wiping it out completely is part of the process). I plugged in the SSD into the RPi4, removed the SD card, and powered the RPi4 up.

There is equivalent software on Windows, but I've forgotten the name.

I'm not sure what you else you may have tried, and I'm not really keeping up with all the Celestron drivers, but does the CGEM driver work?

OK, I think I've successfully updated my git library github.com/JerryBlack/buildKstarsNightlyFromGit to add  -DBUILD_TESTING=OFF as the default for the cmake calls.
