I find that the stable version (3.5.4 stable) crashes at random maybe once or twice a week on ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS (amd64).

I gave up using the FITS viewer and this helped a little. The crashes don't seem to be consistent or related to any particular action (not associated with meridian flip, or focusing, or losing guide stars, or slewing, or plate solving, for example). Just BAM, no more kstars. The mount continues to track but nobody's home. Wake up in the morning, park the mount, and hope for another clear night sometime soonish.

I'm taking a few months off of imaging and hope things are more stable in 2022.
