The build file contains the incorrect link to the x86_64 package. It is actually at: (with underscore in linux-x86_64 instead of hyphen).

Hey, I was unable to install v2.5.1, unfortunately gives a 404 and I think they are just removing old releases to save up space.

Good news is the build worked by just bumping at its latest version (as of now 2.6.3 with 8dac54dbcf53cd1b7e16839307b355bd7e6bf844f523a322f1cf53fd02dc7f20 for x86-64).

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.

ashleyr commented on 2022-06-09 01:19 (UTC)

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.

ashleyr commented on 2021-12-26 09:46 (UTC)

@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.
