  • Hi guys,
    can you please help me to setup my fr24feeder on linux. I have a rather strange solution to the windows problem ... I found that on an old android tv stick (mk808 - RK3066 chipset) you can run linux and I would like to use that as my 24/7 feeder.
    There is an older linux image for that device called PicUntu (based on ubuntu 12.10) that I have installed on it.
    I have tried to follow the instructions provided here for instalation of fr24feed on linux VM, but there were problems. My knowledge of linux is unfortunately VERY limited and is basically limited to following exact instructions.
    Thanks for all the help

    Kris

    • You should follow the instructions for the Raspberry Pi, as the board you are using is an ARM chipset.

      Try this:
      Code:
      wget https://repo-feed.flightradar24.com/rpi_binaries/fr24feed_1.0.23-8_armhf.deb
      sudo dpkg -i fr24feed_1.0.23-8_armhf.deb
      Does it install?

      If it doesn't you will need to use this link:
      https://repo-feed.flightradar24.com/...23-8_armhf.tgz

      But running the binary is kinda complicated and you would need to figure that out on your own.

        fr24feed:armhf:
        Installed: 1.0.23-8
        Dont know how, but got armhf .deb package (for RPI) installed and working on i686 machine after lots of install, uninstall, purge, fix-broken-install, install dependencies. etc
        So many trial-and-errors, dont remember exactly how.

        Will make a fresh install of Raspbian x86 on VM, and try again, this time carefully noting the steps.

        • For something designed for pi and armhf it doesn't make sense huh but don't look gift horse in mouth

            Before writing, I read a lot of branches and on the fr24 forum (including your posts) and on adjacent concerning shutdown of feeders for windows of clients. Again, I have no problem with switching to another hardware (Raspberry PI) or installing and configuring software (*nix on PC) and if desired, I can find a way out. The question is in the absence of any desire, after FR24 just put us before the fact. For example, I did not even receive a notification in advance in the mail, I tried for a long time to understand why everything works locally (the analogue of FR24 only from my feed), but the data does not go to FR24.

            • OK. made a fresh install of Raspbian x86 on Oracle VM on Windows, and carefully did the steps, and found these are the required steps:

              Code:
              uname -m
              # output of above command on my computer is i686,
              # it may be x86_64 on your computer.
              
              
              # Five vital steps in red below:
              
              sudo dpkg --add-architecture armhf
              
              sudo apt update
              
              sudo apt upgrade
              
              sudo apt upgrade --fix-missing
              
              sudo apt install libstdc++6:armhf 
              
              
              
              wget -O fr24feed_1.0.23-8_armhf.deb http://repo-feed.flightradar24.com/rpi_binaries/fr24feed_1.0.23-8_armhf.deb
              
              sudo dpkg -i fr24feed_1.0.23-8_armhf.deb
              
              
              fr24feed --reconfigure
              
              fr24feed-status

                This sounds promising. I will try later today and will report back with my results. Need to get this going already downgraded to a Gold subscription...

                  Please do not quote FULL posts, as this is unnecessary repetition, and makes threads very long and difficult to follow.
                  Quoting only the small key part of posts is much better and cleaner.
                  Thanks for your understanding.

                  • As you probably won't be able to get all the required packages to compile dump1090-mutability 1.15, maybe try 1.14

                    wget https://github.com/mutability/dump10...1.14_armhf.deb
                    sudo dpkg -i dump1090-mutability_1.14_armhf.deb

                      I did follow instructions for Raspberry Pi and managed to install fr24feed, but I did not manage to install dump1090.
                      It seems that the distro used is really old and missing a lot of packages needed to install apps (like apt and git and who knows what else).

                      Is there maybe anther option, maybe another linux version that could work on this TV-stick? Or are the linux versions so CPU and chipset specific?

                        I cannot explain how happy I am to see this on my VM! It worked! I am back online and feeding data. Thank you so much ABCD and & Oblivian, I could have never gotten it back up with your help. The trick was installing the armhf deb and that probably came with the fix you guys were talking about it understanding the SBS/Basestation raw data.

                        Just one more thing, why do I get a NO under MLAT? It is enabled as YES in the .ini file as well as raw data and SBS feed.

                        Is this because my SBS-1er is incapable of sending MLAT? I think the settings file says that MLAT only works with a Raspberry Pi and another device.

                        Thanks again for all the help, really you guys are geniuses with this!

                        Tomas.

                        • ABCDs guide has the auto start buried somewhere.

                          I don't think mlat is enabled/valid for basestation/sbs users. Only beast and dump1090

                          • The miraculous workings of armhf binaries working on x86_64.

                            Very curious. I'm no Linux noob by any means but finding information on the --add-architecture feature is really not easy.
                            Looked around but didn't find anything basically.

                              Actually I learned dpkg --add-architecture from J Prochazka, but he used it only for installing i386.deb on x64_86 machines, never for armhf. This is discovered now by trial & error that it works for armhf.deb on i686 and x64_86. Miraculous indeed!

                                I tried a newer linux image for my android tv stick a got some progress!
                                I managed to install dump1090 and it works.
                                I have tried several versions of fr24feed but there were always issues. The best results were when I installed fr24feed_1.0.18-5_amrhf.tgz
                                But here also I ran into issues that I don't know how to solve. I hope that you can figure it out of this:
