    I thought I'd done that Sunday evening (Monday morning to you) in the raspberry pi thread maybe?

    This is the output when I run dump1090:

    Could someone post what they get when they run dump1090 please, I'd like to see what comes after my last line.
    Thanks

    The problem is no one here is running the same system as you, so to some extent people are guessing what to say since they cant try it first

    there are two ways to run scripts at start up

    1. Run the jobs as a service
    2. Run the jobs as a timed job with a schedule to start the job as the system starts

    It's simpler to use method 2 and if cron is running, it allows other timed events to occur, so lets test if cron is running...

    Code:
    pi@raspberrypi:~$ ps aux | grep cron | grep -v grep
    root      1954  0.0  0.1   3792   784 ?        Ss   Feb19   0:02 /usr/sbin/cron
    If cron is present on the system, I'd try to fix the service that starts cron - then use cron to start the feeder, and so on

    see http://askubuntu.com/questions/9382/...run-at-startup
    and
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuBootupHowto

    Script works well if I start it manually. I'm going to install newest version of Xubuntu 13.10 (currently installed previous version). Maybe it help to solve my problem. I'll post results of it.

    Does the script run run correctly if you start it manually?
    - if it does than the problem is with cron

    The software could be run as a service, but while you are investigating that - it would be worth checking if the cron service is starting (I'm guessing here since I don't have a Debian system nearby) by doing a 'service cron status'.

    Is there an alternative way of autostarting fr24 feeder software on linux than http://forum.flightradar24.com/threa...ll=1#post37302? I've moved from Raspberry Pi on ODROID-U3 platform with XUbuntu 13.10 and got problems with autostaring. Script works but dooesn't autorun at startup. I tried crontab, rc.local, init.d ...

    Never noticed this before. Still on Ubuntu. The PI resellers here in South Africa dont even bother to reply to queries if the thing is under guarantee is its 5 months old.

    Killed the dump1090 processes, then restarted them with only: ./dump1090 --interactive
    And I too get: Segmentation fault (core dumped)
    Then played around with starting parameters, seems I get the Segmentation Fault the moment I do Ctrl-C on whatever the Dump screen is. With all my start up parameters or just plain old DUMP1090 it self.

    Killing the process (with a kill command) seems to terminate normally, cant see the error as in above cases.

    HermanZA has (had?) this running on Ubuntu 12.04 on an old PC, maybe he can help if he sees this.

    try it with

    ./dump1090 --interactive

    first

    all the other options are to set it into basestation mode to quietly feed data into other programs

    --net = open web server on port 8080
    --gain 30 = without this the gain would be 49 or something
    --net-sbs-port 30003 = work in basestation mode
    --quiet = minimal output
    > /dev/null = discard the output
    & = run as a detached process (release the console)

    Calling all Dump1090 users!

    I've just compiled and installed Dump1090 on my Debian Intel box with an RTL R820T and when I run Dump1090 with this command (or any other combination):

    ./dump1090 --net --gain 30 --net-sbs-port 30003 --quiet --lat -40.3 --lon 175.6 > /dev/null &

    all I get is this response and nothing after:

    mike@blitzer:~/dump1090$ Found 1 device(s):
    0: Realtek, RTL2838UHIDIR, SN: 00000001 (currently selected)
    Found Rafael Micro R820T tuner
    Setting gain to: 30.00
    Exact sample rate is: 2000000.052982 Hz
    Gain reported by device: 30.00

    I see no data when using a variety of tools, PP, Telnet and when configured for http nothing either.

    Any clues guys?

    Initial Impression: 241s seems to work well on Pi

    Wish: To save internet bandwidth
    Transmit interval to back off from 5 to 30 - 60 seconds if there are no aircraft to report (infrequent, but not so infrequent that FR24 thinks the feeder has died - just log 'feed skipped - no aircaft to report')
