  • Issue installing fr24 feeder on Debian OS

    Hi guys,

    Yesterday I have tried to install the fr24 feeder on Debian OS.

    But I have selected the wrong receiver in step 4.1

    Now I'm on step 4.3A and want to go back to select the correct one.

    Thank you for your help.

    Regards,

    Just finish with whatever values and then run these commands:

    sudo fr24feed --signup
    sudo chmod a+rw /etc/fr24feed.ini

    # Restart the feeder software
    sudo systemctl restart fr24feed

      @Aerotower

      First stop configuration at any step:
      Press Ctrl and c keys together

      Restart configuration from step 4.1:

      sudo fr24feed --reconfigure

      NOTE:
      If you have already installed an external decoder (such as "dump1090-mutability ver 1.15~dev" or "dump1090-fa", or "ModeSDecoder2", then during receiver selection:
      DO NOT choose "1 - DVB-T Stick (USB)".
      Choose " 4 - ModeS Beast (USB/Network)"

        Thanks it works.

        Now i'm in step 6B - desire log patch...
        What is the patch?

        I have a airnav flightstick, and have install the flightaware feed.

          A path is the location of a folder. (or location of a file)

          So it wants to know where to put log files.

          Doesn't it have defaults?
          Just put in
          /var/log

            Did you install any external decoder like:

            - dump1090-mutability ver 1.15~dev
            - dump1090-fa
            - ModeSDeco2

            If NO, then in step 4.1 choose "1 - DVB-T Stick"

            If YES, then follow instructions in STEP (11) of this post:

            https://forum.flightradar24.com/thre...-15-dev-on-RPi

            .

                Now that you have done initial setup of fr24feed, here are 3 methods to do configuration changes in future:

                (1) Commandline:
                Code:
                sudo fr24feed --reconfigure

                (2) Editing configuration values in file "fr24feed.ini"
                Code:
                sudo nano /etc/fr24feed.ini

                (3) Using Browser
                3.1 - Go to this page in your browser on Debian computer running fr24feed:
                localhost:8754/settings.html

                3.2 - Make desired changes.

                3.3 - Click "Save" button, then "Restart" button. Both these buttons are at bottom-right corner of settings page.

                  Addition to my last post above:

                  The page "localhost:8754/settings.html" (or "ip-of-computer:8754/settings.html") and the file "/etc/fr24feed.ini" interact with each other as follows:
                  • When the page "settings.html" starts, it reads values from file "fr24feed.ini" and displays it in its form fields.

                  • When the "Save" button on "settings.html" is clicked, all the values currently displayed in "settings.html" are saved in file "fr24feed.ini", over writing any data already existing there.

                  • When the fr24feed is restarted by clicking "Restart" button on "settings.html" (or by rebootin the Computer, or by command "sudo systemctl restart fr24feed"), the fr24feed daemon reads the file "fr24feed.ini" and uses these value to start & run the fr24feed daemon.

                  • The file "fr24feed.ini" is made writeable by the fr24feed installer. If for any reason this file becomes write protected, the "Save" and "Restart" buttons disappear from page "settings.html". To remedy this, make the file writeable again by giving followig command
                    Code:
                    sudo chmod a+rw /etc/fr24feed.ini
                  • Upon completion of the configuration done by command "sudo fr24feed --reconfigure", the values are also saved in file "fr24feed.ini", overwriting any values already existing there

                    I think that something is wrong with flightaware, FR24 is running but FA is not.

                    How can I check what is running or not, and correct them?

                    Thanks.

                        Flightaware Piaware accepts data in Beast format on port 30005.

                        What format and on which port your data source is giving output?

                          the typical reason for FR24 working and FA not working would be wrongly configuring FR24.

                          please show

                          cat /etc/fr24feed.ini

                          the typical choice is to select DVBT as receiver type, which makes fr24 use its own dump1090 version which then means the other feeders don't work.

                          these are the correct settings:

                          receiver="beast-tcp"
                          fr24key="YOUR_KEY"
                          host="127.0.0.1:30005"

                            OK, I have change the fr24feed.ini file for the correct format.

                            I can see that Piaware is running, accordingly with log file, but when I use localhost:8080 nothing is showing.

                            Maybe I will erase all the data from SD card and install the software again.....

                            Thanks.

                              We are assuming that the @Aerotower has a DVB-T & a stand alone decoder. This is because there is information provided by @Aerotower about his receiver hardware & decoder software.

                              Without full info about receiver hardware & decoder software nobody can give a solution.
