Use a new SD, image copy the 64 bit OS to the SD and boot, thats it BUT there is NO compatible KSTARS so don’t destroy the 32 bit SD.

No, after the image is copied to the Pi SD using on of the Pi utilities then the image is booted, there is NO COMPILING.

there is no KSTARS/INDI/EKOS for the 64 bit OS.. Try loading Ubuntu 20.04 server then research how to load the desk top. Ubuntu still has the complete full and latest INDI and KSTARS, I run this on my Ubuntu Lenovo Laptop and it is trouble free.

Its most unfortunate that astroberry+Raspberry Pi-4 with kstars 3.6.0 is slow and buggy, I just cannot get the date/time/location entered and saved . It almost works with the ZWO AM5 mount but very very slow

At the same time I have KSTARS 3.6.2 installed on Ubuntu 20.04 Laptop which works FINE.
but
Ubuntu 20.04 is no longer available for the Raspberry Pi or PCs so I’m STUCK , Old Astroberry with 3.5.8 KSTARS works fine with my Celestron mounts but apparently its too old for the ZWO AM5.

I FEEL STUCK in limbo .

What can I do, I really like Astroberry and do not want to change to anything else.

Where are the nightly updates located from Astroberry 3.6.0. I installed astroberry kstars 3.6.0 stable last night but hopefully there is a better build as 3.6.0 seems full of problems .
Raspberry Pi-4
Need 3.6.xx for the ZWO AM5 mount Astroberry versions
3.5.8 on Pi-4 and 3.6.2 on Ubuntu 20/.04 run fine.

Astroberry updated 12/30/2022 to prepare for a new ZWO AM5 Mount, USB to rPi-4. KSTARS IS NOW 3.6.0 INDI 1.9 latest
INDI: selected AM5 driver for a USB connection
Start Profile
AM5 failed connection at /dev/ttyUSB0
Forced (and I’m not sure how I did this) forced EKOS to load /dev/ttyACM0 because ttyUSB0 had no contents and ttyCM0 has the contents defining the AM5. Connection SUCCESSFUL
EKOS panel read the AM5 firmware version, good news
Select a GoTo in KSTARS
AM5 DOESN’T rotate, nothing
Select EKOS Mount PARK, Mount BEEPS so it is connected , MOUNT does not RoTATE.

NOTE: Ubuntu and 3.6.2 same AM5 USB connection works fine. 12 months AStroberry and KSTARS experience.

Same here, updated raspberry pi astroberry and got KSTARTS 3.6.0 which does not work with tthe ZWO AM5
Updated the Ubuntu 20.04 Lalptop KSTARS/EKOS and got KSTARS 3.6.2 which seems to work fine with the ZWO AM5 , same versions of INDI on both machines.

I found INDI is looking in the wrong /dev/ttyxxx directory. If its a USB connection the software is looking in /dev/ttyUSB0 which is Missing, in my case 3.6.0 and 3.6.2 . Sooo I looked in /dev/ttyACM0 and found the driver entry there so I copied ACM0 to /dev/ttyUSB0 which caused KSTAR/EKOS to ‘SEARCH’ for the correct file which it found at /dev/ttyACM0, that fixed 3.6.2 . 3.6.0 has more problems, GoTo will not rotate the ZWO AM5 mount.

Ubuntu and 3.6.2 + ZWO AM5 works fine, 3.6.0 doesn’t

Bbillp created a new topic ' AM5 USB Driver Compatibility' in the forum. 1 year ago

Astroberry / INDI updated 12/30/2022 RASPBERRY PI-4
Driver : ZWO AM5
Connection: USB (verified with Ubuntu KSTARS 3.5.2 on a separate PC)
Personal experience: 12 months Ubuntu and Raspberry Pi , Celestron Mounts
INDI Setup panels look normal
EKOS connects and reads the AM% Firmware number
KSTARS GoTo any object, the AM5 does not GoTo, NO Rotation, no Activity, NO Errors.
PARK function will result in a AM5 BEEP so that command is understood.

What am I missing on Raspberry Pi Astroberry ???

KSTARS/EKOS/INDI 3.6.2 works fine on Ubuntu Linus.
