  • FlightRadar24 stopped uploading data

    Hi,
    Hoping I can get some advice on getting FlightRadar24 on my Pi uploading data again as it has stopped.
    It has been working for a few years along side RadarBox "still working ok"
    When I run fr24feed-status I get:

    [ ok ] FR24 Feeder/Decoder Process: running.
    [ ok ] FR24 Stats Timestamp: 2022-06-05 10:35:47.
    [ ok ] FR24 Link: connected [UDP].
    [ ok ] FR24 Radar: T-EGAC46.
    [ ok ] FR24 Tracked AC:.
    [FAIL] Receiver: down ... failed!
    [FAIL] FR24 MLAT: not running ... failed!

    When I run /usr/lib/fr24/dump1090 --interactive --net I get:

    Sun Jun 5 10:28:03 2022 UTC dump1090-mutability v1.14 starting up.
    Found 1 device(s):
    0: Generic, RTL2832U, SN: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (currently selected)
    usb_claim_interface error -6
    Error opening the RTLSDR device: Device or resource busy

    Not sure if it's connected however when I run sudo apt-get update I get:
    ​​​​​​​
    Ign:1 http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian stretch InRelease
    Err:2 http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian stretch Release
    Could not open file /var/lib/apt/lists/partial/raspbian.raspberrypi.org_raspbi an_dists_stretch_Release - open (30: Read-only file system)

    Thanks

      run an independent decoder.

      it'll also fix the fr24feed / rb24 config.

      Also consider adding graphs1090: https://github.com/wiedehopf/adsb-wi...ADS-B-receiver

        Thanks Oblivian and wiedehopf, FR24 now uploading data however after installing the decoder it displaying:

        ERROR: readsb service didn't start.
        common issues: SDR not plugged in.
        the webinterface will show an error until readsb is running!

        Not sure if an issue or not!!!

          well show the log for the decoder as described in the readme.

          Are you running something else that would be using the SDR?

          pgrep -fa dump1090

            Thanks for the reply wiedehopf, no just RadarBox as per above "which has now stopped uploading data :-( ", the output of the pgrep is:

            6252 /usr/bin/dump1090-mutability --raw --mlat --write-json /run/dump1090-mutability/

              Well install readsb as i suggested using the script, it'll fix your install.
              Basically both feed clients grab the SDR for themselves.

              A solution as described is installing a standalone decoder (readsb) and changing the config (the install script i made does that).

                Hi wiedehopf, that's the error I get after running your readsb script:

                sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - https://github.com/wiedehopf/adsb-scripts/raw/master/readsb-install.sh)"

                  That's the command to run the script, not an error.

                    Sorry; to clarify
                    I ran the command sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - https://github.com/wiedehopf/adsb-scripts/raw/master/readsb-install.sh)"
                    And when it completed it displayed:

                    ERROR: readsb service didn't start.
                    common issues: SDR not plugged in.
                    the webinterface will show an error until readsb is running!

                      you'll have to show the complete output of the install script, you could put it onto pastebin.com and then link it.

                        sudo journalctl -u rbfeeder | tail -n30
                        sudo journalctl -u fr24feed | tail -n30

                        Let's also check the journal of the 2 feeders, maybe my script isn't doing the reconfiguration correctly.
