The manual operation section on the website is out of date. The POCS and PEAS shells no longer exist, and “manual” operation of the unit is impossible (I think). Only the automatic operation section is functional. The general progression of getting the unit working after its been fully assembled is to fill out the config server, which is relly just a service that edits the file located at ~pocs/conf_files/pocs_local.yaml, note that I think you may need to make a copy of pocs.yaml called pocs_local.yaml on a fresh install of the system. In practice, using just the config server will not be feasible, you will need to look in the actual pocs_local.yaml file with cat, nano, vi, or vim to make sure you’ve edited everything correctly and filled out all of the fields. From there forwards, I have not personally tested the automated operation section, and can give you no other advice other than to follow it. My one other tip is that if you’d like to be able to have the unit take pictures of something specific, you will need to create a special fields file with just that target in it. To do that, you need to create a .yaml file in ~pocs/conf_files/fields . The contents of the file need to be in the exact format as the other files currently in the fields directory. Then, you need to change pocs_local.yaml’s fields file line to be the name of the file you created in the fields directory.
