Glad to see you contributing James. It does seem that large numbers of files cablead to this issue, however that’s still a valid use case in my eyes. I found another AllSky camera user who had reported the same thing.
Right now I’m looking for an easy way to obtain the ekosdebugger package/application which should help us to diagnose the issue.
I have cloned the source from git but seems there are many dependencies to apt-get before I can build it locally.
If anyone has the repository info where I can apt-get it directly then that would be appreciated.
