  Description     : Lin-guider is an astronomical auto guiding software for Linux.

Lin-guider is an astronomical tool for auto guiding on Linux. It supports
the following cameras for reference image capturing: Philips, Logitech, uvc
webcams, QHY5, QHY6, DSI2PRO, QHY5L-II-M, QHY5L-II-C, QHY5-II, all
Atik cameras (except GP), all Starlight Xpress cameras and all ZWO ASI
cameras. The listed above devices which are equipped with ST4 port can also
be used for guiding. In addition the flowing pulse guiding hardware can be used:
FTDI chip-based, parallel port-based (LPT), GPIO-based, GPUSB devices,
and all telescope mounts supporting Nexstar protocol.


P.S. I hope this description is better.

Probably not, you just need to care about the target architecture list.
