  • fr24feed failed to synchronise time

    it looks like fr24feed is very unhappy about being unable to synchronise time. How do I tell it which NTP server to use?

    It's hard coded. But If you also see this under fr24feed-status

    FR24feed Core running. Possible Ping or in-use USB Issue:
    [ ok ] FR24 Feeder/Decoder Process: running.
    [ ok ] FR24 Stats Timestamp: 2018-01-24 09:15:30.
    [ ok ] FR24 Link: connected [UDP].
    [ ok ] FR24 Radar:
    [ ok ] FR24 Tracked AC:.
    [FAIL] Receiver: down ... failed!
    [FAIL] FR24 MLAT: not running ... failed!

    While it appears to work fine, And are on Stretch/Jessie.. try the ping fix and restart. It will log as time sync failure from ping lookup

    sudo chmod 4755 /bin/ping

      I don't have fr24feed-status. The only package I could get to run is the precompiled binary fr24feed_1.0.18-5_amd64.tgz.

      What source should I be installing from on Ubuntu 16.04LTS? Important that no libusb etc. get overwritten, I need the versions to remain exactly as they are - fr24feed should simply connect to the dump1090 port and do its thing, that's nothing more than store and forward.

        There's a manual install (not the bash script) that I Beleive should be ok.

        And just the debian engine.

        I think someone a week ago or so was doing similar to you with similar full Linux workaround
