The latest version of this is

I'm not sure if the URL changed for the older source but the pkgbuild stop working and I couldn't get version 1.7.1 to build.

After editing the pkgbuild file to the below I have now successfully installed version

Maintainer: Ashely Roll <ash at digitalnemesis dot com>

pkgname=astrodmx-capture pkgver= pkgrel=1 pkgdesc="AstroDMx Capture Astronomical Imaging" arch=('x86_64') url=""

No licence file available in package, see
for details.

license=(custom) options=(!strip) install=$pkgname.install depends=('glibc>=2.27')

The Author, Nicola, is now copying new releases into both the current and old folders so that we
can maintain a constant path the file. Hopefully this will allow us to continue installing older versions
without breakage after a new version is released. Thanks Nicola!

@ashleyr thanks for maintaining while you could. I will take a look at what is involved when I get time next week to see if I can adopt it.

It seems the contents of the upstream package have changed around quite a bit and I don't have the free time to work out the right way to install it again.

I'd suggest uninstalling the package and using the manual installer from the AstroDMx Capture web site at this point.

Unfortunately I'm no longer in a position to maintain this package sorry.

Hi, could you update to, thanks.

ashleyr commented on 2022-02-16 09:19 (UTC)

I'll need a few days to update sorry, about to jump on a plane. Will get to it as soon as I can.

gps1539 commented on 2022-02-15 17:02 (UTC)

Hi, any chance of updating to 1.4.1, thanks.

@gps1539 Thanks for the heads up! it seems the upstream package has changed. I checked against my existing download.

Will be updating to a new release in a few minutes also.

Thanks for managing astrodmx. The sha256sum for the package do not seem to match the PKGBUILD file and the update fails. I downloaded directly via wget and I get the different chksum.

$ sha256sum astrodmx-capture_1.3.14.0_x86-64-manual.tar.gz dcb650ff3b0553921c6133c05d9698954996a0408bbc04a0eaca841763372f68 astrodmx-capture_1.3.14.0_x86-64-manual.tar.gz

Nicola (the author) has very helpfully agreed to copy new releases into the old folder as they are released as well as put them into the current folder so that we can use the consistent path in our PKGBUILD and avoid it breaking. I've updated this as of version 1.2.6.

Thanks heaps Nicola!

A quick note about the package breaking on new release

The author of AstroDMX is moving the archive location when they release a new version so the source link becomes invalid until I can update the version in the PKGBUILD.

I've contacted the author to see if there is a way we can fix this.

In the meantime, please flag as out of date, and I'll update as soon as I can.

You need to replace "current" by "old" in the source package url in order to build 0.90.2. The right one is${pkgver}_x86-64-manual.tar.gz

By the way, current version is 1.0.5 ;-)
