    Question Receiver working with Linux ?

    Hi,

    i'm living near Frankfurt (Airport FRA).
    I would buy an ADS-B receiver and i have a server running 7/24 - but on linux.

    Is there any receiver known to work with linux ?

    Tack så mycket.
    Joe

    You could probably get it to work via Virtualization. Perhaps using a program such as WINE.
    Apparently receivers have worked well using VMfusion on Mac.

    An old treat had to get it going again...

    I have the PlaneGadget. I would really love to have it working on linux. But there are some drivers for it only for windows. Having it under VirtualBox i believe it's not good option due to USB 2.0 problems I've experienced when you have Linux as a host.

    Anybody has any experience with this?

    Thank you for the info. But this seem to be for the SBS-1 and not the planegadet itself?

    The SBS1 Explorer application features a nice GUI allowing a variety of queries to any SBS-1 flights database without having to install the BaseStation software. Simply get a database file (usually BaseStation.sqb) and open it in SBS1 Explorer. Though the interface aims to be simple by focusing on the main search fields it also allows advanced queries. This project is still in beta status, lots of bugs are therefore expected.
    Not sure how the Basestation.sqb can be updated without installing the Basestaion software?

    As you are a member on Radarspotters already why don't you send a PM to the maker of PlanGadget and ask him, he is also a memb over there, I am sure he can help you.

    Looking forward to run on Linux

    Well, too bad it can't run directly on Linux.

    It would be really nice if people could run a station and contribute to radarflight24.com using a tiny energy-saver linux box such as this:

    Yes, that is my point exactly. I really would rather have something like that than to spent 100s of WATS unnecessary power.
