    Can you please tell which version and architecture of fr24feed you have installed?
    I installed 1.0.18-5 x64 exactly like described in post #1:

    So is it correct, that tar1090 is just an addition to dump1090-fa? So in my case my current working dump1090-fa installation should stay installed and I just should add tar1090, right?

      Why do you ask, it's all been explained.

      Install it if you wish or don't install it, i don't care!
      Yes it'll work with dump1090-fa, that's what it's made for.

        Will it be more or much more CPU usage if I enable MLAT calculations?
        Or will CPU usage not change because of that?

        Or just does it make no sense, cause I am in the middle of Europe?

          Why don't you just test if you can see a difference?
          Might be better to leave it off if you are using a VM, might be some USB problems which make MLAT go bad.

          So just leave it off.

            Hello wiedehopf, today I installed your tar1090 and it looks great, thank you

            But as you will surely know, I have a few questions:
            • The configuration file talks bout a "track history". Where is this history saved and where on the map can I see historic flights?
            • Is it possible that flight hyperlinks do lead to FR24 website?


            • #96
              I won't add links to FR24, just type in the call sign or tail number, it's simple enough.
              (also linking to FR24 only works by tail number, not by callsign and you don't end up on the live map)

              The track history is only to show you aircraft tracks for aircraft presently in sight.
              The history is saved in memory.
              Without that history you would open the web interface and wouldn't be able to see the aircraft trail.

              If you want older flights you can give this a try:
              But there is no index, no nothing.
              And it's not meant for storing the data long term.

              And before you ask there really isn't any good solution around to create an historic archive.
              Maybe someone else will have something for you, but in my experience nothing works really well.

                I have installed my FR24 on Debian Linux x64 following the good instructions in post #1 here.

                Now I recognized, that FR24 released a debian x64 package with current version 1.0.24-5 here:
                What is the correct way for me to upgrade to this latest version?
                Is it enough to just download and install the package by dpkg -i Or will that lead to problems?

                  I have tested every version past "fr24feed_1.0.18-5_i386" and they al have issues, at least on my Ubuntu system.

                    Fairly evident it's a direct port from arm then. And OS updates and features have not been taken into account. Oddly the official DL page was showing me 18-5 until I just re-checked now so I thought it had been rolled back.

                      On Ubuntu 18.04 with "fr24feed_1.0.24-5_amd64"
                      sudo nano /etc/fr24feed.ini
                      mlat="yes" to "no"
                      mlat-without-gps="yes" to "no"

                      Also enable logging, if not already enabled by changing logmode="0" to "1"

                      Save file

                      Restart fr24feed:
                      sudo systemctl restart fr24feed
                      Wait for 5 minutes, then check log & status:

                      cat /var/log/fr24feed/fr24feed.log
                      sudo systemctl status fr24feed
