    This is outdated as the author of adsb-receiver (j prochazka) is not regularly updating his code.

    I should probably run the activation page myself one day to see what it does/asks for.

    Does it even give the opportunity to enter past details or blanket give a new one and then ask for email to associate it to.

    If it's the latter, even having previous details on hand may not go

    You don't have to listen to me by the way

    Just bouncing ideas. If you don't agree, shrug me off

    I know lots use the image over and over as an easy out to fixing things they dont understand or when there was a failure. Of course incrementing the ID

    And if one doesn't read-ahead (personally I read instructions as a whole to get a feel of where its going then start step by step) and does line by line they may do the old put part a into part b....







    Under no circumstances

    DOH!

    Have a look at this thread: "2019 - PI24 (Image) QuickStart Guide".
    I have rearranged it and rewritten/revised some parts

    Normal & Error messages (stdout and stderr)are by default output to PuTTY window.

    It's the sort of thing you would want to look out for key error words and do a !halt while outputting the current 'whats been done log' to that point (or produce nice formatted output and stop when it hits one)

    Oh, I have no doubt much like wiedehopfs it'd likely work on a clean base.

    If 20 steps can be (flawlessly) cut down to 1-2 lines. It takes the 'OMG SCARY' factor and potential to go wrong away from end users.

    The downside, if it does go wrong. There can be a whoooole lot more reasons for it to try solve
    It will be interesting if you try yourself to see if it is flawless or not:

    (1) Burn Pi24 to microSD card, then run its bash command I have posted above

    (2) Burn Raspbian Buster to microSD card and run its bash script I have posted above.

    Oh abcd567 is offering a precompiled package for stretch, right?
    The dump1090-mutability ver 1.15~dev package I have built and uploaded to my Github site is compatible to both Stretch & Buster.

    It can be installed on Raspbian image (Stretch & Buster) by following bash script:
    Code:
    sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/abcd567a/dump1090/master/install_dump1090_mut_1.15.sh)"

    It can be installed on Pi24 image (current Stretch, future Buster) to replace ver 1.14 by following bash command
    Code:
    sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/abcd567a/dump1090/master/PI24_replace_dump1090_v1.14_by_v1.15.sh)"
    Both the above bash commands are comprehensive and user does not have to issue any other command.

    Like, if all the different dump solutions were in a single

    At least if you suggest to someone to try the alternate method, it wouldn't need to be re-pasted all over. Just refer the alternate one

    It's hard to gauge at what level would get themselves to.

    Or which alternate feeders would like to be added. I too swing toward a standard base + addons as required. But thats out of reach for some levels

    So the pi24 mods are still required for those who get braver

    I dunno. Thinking too hard lol

    No easy way out. But it does seem to be common errors arising, and when you ask what was done to get to that point its 'I can't recall which thread' (or impatiently raced ahead instead of halting there and then)

    My head is thinking Hierarchical logic

    Which is likely WELL over-engineered for purpose

    Where the main thing would cover what people have come for specifically.

    And steps within broken into external steps, with the option to swap out to different

    Of course people would still find the instructionals on their, so would need a back-reference too *sigh* I only just thought of that

    Or consider the right blocks a single multi-post thread with each page dedicated to the differing versions if they fit
