Sounds exciting Jerry..  How can I (we) help?

Tim / Jerry,

Sounds like we have a quorum!!  :-)  I have extra MicroSDs so not a problem. I will hereby identify myself as the weakest link in this trio, but anxious to learn more.  Question becomes how to set this up?  Facebook chat, etc..  I am very appreciative.  We are faced with some of the Astroberry type apps also not being 64, but maybe with a working INDI things might come along.. Chief among them might be PHD2...  Astroberry installs the January version of 32 bit Buster...

Tim,

Any chance we can chat offline? I can follow (and understand) some of the procedures in doing a native install, but by no means an expert.. :-( Appreciate in advance!

Good day all,

Is there any testing or thoughts for running Astroberry on 64 Bit Bullseye or Ubuntu?  Willing to help in this, but understand the underlying apps have to support 64 bit as well..

Thanks!

All,

Putting aside 64 bit for a minute, I was unable to get a good build of INDI/EKOS in Bullseye 32 bit using the following set of instructions..  I can try to grab a screen shot of the errors..  Is there anyone doing testing with an eye toward a good set of instructions or downloads for Bullseye yet?  I understand the differences between Debian and Ubuntu and find Debian both faster and "smoother" to work with..  I'm willing to help anyone more knowledgeable with testing..

Grimaldi..

Yes, new to compiling but always up for learning and not opposed to nightly builds.. The beauty of an RPI is just switch Micro SD cards.  ;-).  Are there some "youtube videos" to help get me started?  As for 64 bit.. just about everything going there.. dedicated computers like Fusion and PrimaLuce Eagles, etc. are running 64 bit Linux but with their own software.. Appreciate being "stable" but the sooner testers can get on a 64 bit Astroberry, the better for us all.  I realize the underlying applications all have to feel that way also..  I can run SkyX to do what I need except for remote access to the warm room in the observatory (VNC) .. haven't totally checked out nomachine but looks promising..  Again want to connect to the "remote" RPIs with ethernet, not wireless..

Thanks for all the help!!!

Jerry,

Thanks.  Will check out NoMachine.  Ultimately, I will have two RPIs running as I have two piers in the observatory.. I will have ethernet running to each pier and back to a shared switch with a Macbook Pro and external monitor (at least that's the plan) in the warm room.. I normally would use SkyX for everything, but I always like to have options for lots of reasons..  I like PHD2 Multistar for example..  The support (right now) for the Pegasus Ultimate Power Boxes is better in INDI as well for example.  Packages like AstroImager (and assorted other packages from them) on the Mac use INDI...

So as an aside, and given that the new OSs are going to have 64 bit (Raspian is faster than Ubuntu) do we anticipate something more "official"??

Thanks again

Jay S.

Jerry/Grimaldi...

First apologies for the delay..  Doing lots of RPI things, working on interior of new observatory and getting ready for Old Man Winter doing outside chores here in Northeast PA..  :-).  So, back to the matter at hand...  Being totally transparent here.  How do I go about executing that script???  Is it a command executed in terminal mode?  Do I execute it in a browser?  Still not sure what it is building?  I see the KStars build info in the link, but is is also building a library for INDI at the same time?

Also didn't realize VNC is not 64 bit yet, so can't remote access the RPIs from another computer....

Thanks!
Jay S.

Grimaldi...

Thanks.. Sorry.. Script for Ubuntu or Debian Bullseye?

Jasem.. Thanks.. I don't have experience in compiling INDI and not quite sure where to start.. I do have comp experience in compiling executables, but no clue on INDI.. Was hoping for a more "official" version since a 64 bit Bullseye is now out and running.. I also have an Ubuntu build running so I can check into that.. Will look for some but if you have some pointers, I'd appreciate as well. Again thank you for replying..

Good evening all,

Is the new RPI 4 64 bit version of Bullseye fully supported yet? Have new RPI build loaded and attempted to start a download and install of INDIlib and drivers and getting error messages about compatibility with ARM64.  Not looking to create an Astroberry bootable image but prefer to install the packages I would like to use, e.g. EKOS, PHD2, etc..  I already have a full SkyX install running..  Thanks!

Thanks, but it's also supposed to be available without having to buy Stellarmate.. INDI Lib, EKOS and KSTARS are all free downloads and EKOS Live is the add on to give you Cloud Access. I'm also running SkyX on the RPI... Was just looking for a link to try the EKOS Live piece on the image I'm building.

Doing a DIY version on Pi4 and interested in EKOS Live.. If I wanted to sign up for it, where can I find out info on that. There's a sign up through the Stellarmate page but wondered if there is something else somewhere?

Thanks..
