Hi all
Tonight Im having this annoying problem with the feeder.

Apparently FR24 is running fine on my Orange Pi but it is not connected-

systemctl status fr24feed

* fr24feed.service - Flightradar24 Decoder & Feeder
Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/fr24feed.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
Active: active (running) since Sun 2022-11-20 20:55:55 UTC; 1min 50s ago
Process: 8103 ExecStartPre=/usr/lib/fr24/install_dump1090.sh (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)

Time syncing look fine too:

systemctl status systemd-timesyncd.service

* systemd-timesyncd.service - Network Time Synchronization

CGroup: /system.slice/systemd-timesyncd.service
`-305 /lib/systemd/systemd-timesyncd

But when I give:
sudo fr24feed-status

[ ok ] FR24 Feeder/Decoder Process: running.
[ ok ] FR24 Stats Timestamp: 2022-11-20 20:58:48.
[FAIL] FR24 Link: unknown ... failed!
[ ok ] Receiver: connected (8224 MSGS/0 SYNC).
[FAIL] FR24 MLAT: not running ... failed!

Any suggestion ?


Ok, forget it!!

I found what the problem was.
It happens when you edit some configuration files at night on the balcony ....

Unfortunately I mispelled the symbolic link that the file: /etc/resolv.conf was pointing at. .
Now I restarted the network and fr24feed looks happy (obviously)

Sorry for bothering you guys
Cheers
