    Right now I am not at home. When back home, I will try to install the RPi .deb package (fr24feed_1.0.23-8_armhf.deb) on Raspbian x86 in VM on Windows by following method (same as for i386.deb package except that the downloaded package is armhf.deb instead of i386.deb).

    If successful, it will be a great help for SBS users.


    Code:
    # Download RPi .deb package ver 1.0.23.8 from repository
    cd 
    wget -O fr24feed_1.0.23-8_armhf.deb http://repo-feed.flightradar24.com/rpi_binaries/fr24feed_1.0.23-8_armhf.deb 
    
    # Check your machine's architecture by command below: 
    uname -m 
    
    # If command "uname -m" outputs "x86_64", then give following two commands 
    sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 
    sudo apt install libc6:i386 libudev1:i386 zlib1g:i386 libusb-1.0-0:i386 libstdc++6:i386 dirmngr 
    
    # If command "uname -m" does NOT output "x86_64", then give following command 
    sudo apt install libc6 libudev1 zlib1g libusb-1.0-0 libstdc++6 dirmngr 
    
    # After installing dependencies as above, install the downloaded fr24feed ver 1.0.23.8_armhf.deb package
    
    sudo dpkg -i fr24feed_1.0.23-8_armhf.deb
    As much as I don't want to get into testing also (man there are a lot of different ways to feed if you don't simply have a Pi/USB stick..) ModesMixer looks like it could run on the host and produce workable data that old fr24feed on VM is not restricted to (beast)?

    At the same time the application is able to work with hardware Mode-S receivers as modesbeast or SBS-3 with traditional serial (COM Port) connections over USB interface.

      Early versions need a windows PC as no onboard decoder. And if you want the graphical feature you tend to have one running 24/7 already. With a pi, often lose that ability totally thanks to the feed sw coding.

      Say there was 5% of a 10,000 uploader base on windows and the majority sbs. That's 200 people suddenly not able to use em.
      I totally understand. Heck I wish I had a Kinetic SBS-3 on my desk!! My point really is that $30 worth of PI is an awesome supplement to any shack no matter what you have already.

      • @Oblivian: you should check which VMware image you started from.

        I've read there is an emulation for armhf available so maybe you got one of those images.

        You can also use "uname -m" to check the architecture of your VM.

            raspian.jpg

            (I've still not copy paste between host/virtual working)..

            But it continued and hit the shared feed (beastsplitter) and seemed to upload fine.

            PRETTY_NAME="Debian GNu/Linux 9 (stretch)"

            https://www.raspberrypi.org/download...ry-pi-desktop/ seems to be, an emulated pi OS, And therefore the script doesn't seem to have many hiccups. For a Mode-S beast at least

              Neither can I copy-paste from VM to host. I solved it by running Putty on host machine and SSH to VM. To be able to SSH from host to VM, in Settings >> Network, you should change "NAT" to "Bridged Network".

              It does not seem to be emulated armhf Raspbian. it is stripped down Debian x86 with Raspbian desktop envoroment.

                No answers then. But I got the raspberry pi/armhf edition of Fr24feed installed and working on it. Which may be a good step for those with SBS as it apparently includes the fixes.

                fr24feed:armhf:
                Installed: 1.0.23-8

                • Can you show the output of

                  uname -m

                  I'm curious what that will say.

                  Comment


                  • Just plain ol x86_64

                    Which is what lead me down the path to doing an -add-architecture, manual PGPkey import and trying to drop the essential dependancies before running the sh script. To my surprise, voila!

                    • For me command uname -a showed i686 and command to add architecture gave some warning messages. Inspite of installing dependencies, it refused to install the armhf package. The method I posted few posts above did not work on my machine.

                      I will try again. May be doing it late night with a sleepy brain caused this.

                      I did use Raspbian x86 for Desktop from raspberrypi foundation on Oracle VM on Windows 8.1

                        • Well you would have to add the architecture armhf, not i386, abcd567.

                          Still curious how this can work though.

                          You should also remove the two bogus architectures you added:
                          sudo dpkg --remove-architecture i386
                          sudo dpkg --remove-architecture i686

                          sudo dpkg --add-architecture armhf

                          sudo apt update
                          sudo apt dist-upgrade



                          Then adapt all the library stuff to install the armhf versions.

                              I need to re-replicate to see how I got it going.

                              From memory, my base always showed x86_x64. Think I chose the 64b ver during install.

                              I put on the 18-5 .deb using wget (no dump1090 as we dont use it on and/beast) and mucked about confirming it worked

                              Later figured let's try break it, edited sources to add fr24 source and raspberrypi-stable

                              Added armhf architecture

                              Ran the libc6 and so on line to get those on

                              Added dirmngr and gpg keys

                              Ran the .sh installer. It had a few whines but still went

                              And baffled me from there it looks like it still added dump1090 but didn't start it as I turned all that off and configured for a different device.

                                The feed app is independent from Dump1090. What you are asking for, is how to change a non-standard router based setup. Not a pure linux or windows setup.

                                Moving.
