  • Automated Instal of FR24 Feeder on Debian & Ubuntu amd64 on Intel 64bit Computer

    Automated installation of FR24 Feeder on Debian & Ubuntu amd64 on Intel 64bit Computer

    Advantages

    (1) Easy installation - just copy and paste one command to run the bash script and it will do everything.

    (2) Auto start - the systemd service automatically starts fr24feed when booting / rebooting.

    (3) Simple monitoring and control - provides the commands "systemctl status fr24feed", "systemctl stop fr24feed", "systemctl start fr24feed" and "systemctl restart fr24feed".

    (4) Easy Setup - Generates configuration file /etc/fr24feed.ini, which can be edited by user at any time to add/modify settings.


    NOTES:
    (1) The script installs binary fr24feed_1.0.18-5_amd64.tgz.

    This binary is several years old, but this is the only option currently available for trouble free installation and operation on 64 bit Intel computers.


    (2) The fr24feed installation script does NOT install any version of dump1090. The user should separately install dump1090 (mutability or flightaware). Separate scripts have been provided to install dump1090 (see list of scripts below)



    SCRIPT 1:
    Installs fr24feed on Debian 9, Debian 10, Ubuntu 18, Ubuntu 19

    Caution: Use only ONE of the following three

    SCRIPT 2:
    Installs dump1090-mutability v1.15~dev (for Debian 9 & Ubuntu 18)

    SCRIPT 3:
    Installs dump1090-mutability EB_VERSION (for Debian 10 & Ubuntu 19)

    SCRIPT 4:
    Installs dump1090-fa (for Debian 9 & 10 and Ubuntu 18 & 19)
