    Current thread was NEVER a sticky.

    The thread which was sticky since its creation, and became outdated was "Raspberry PI installation made too easy with extra feature" (started by zahidulhasan in Oct 2017). This is the thread you un sticked recently.
    Bah. Too many similar guides.

    I'd go on a delete spree but someone would be bound to tell me off.

    This is exactly this hurdle I'm running into.

    I see guides on here that have a lot of pages to them. I do not want to be lazy, but, if there are say 12 or 13 pages, it takes a very long time to read through everything only to find out like Oblivion says the information is no longer valid.

    What would be great is if these threads could somehow be archived so the information is still there but it would be clear they are no longer valid.

    I did notice the Github page on Mutability says it's old code that is no longer maintained but I see quite a bit that seems to still be using it.

    asdb-receiver which is talked about in this thread should work.

    mutability moved to maintaining dump1090-fa but dump1090-mutability 1.15 still works fine.

    you should be able to use both without a problem.

    If you want to use dump1090-fa, i've written a guide on how to install it with fr24feed in mind:

    You dont have to read all pages, read only the first post of the thread.
    The First post is the actual "How-to" and contains all necessary instructions AND it is regularly updated.
    Subsequent posts are either questions/answers raised by users or optional items.

    This comment is specific to one particular thread, whose author has stopped updating his software (the image file), and also stopped appearing and answering questions. Most of other Howto's are regularly updated.

    This comment is applicable to Mutabilty ver 1.14.
    The Mutability ver 1.15~dev is still good, and up to date.

    Well 1.15 is no longer maintained either.

    Mutability moved on to developing dump1090-fa and is no longer fixing bugs or problems in dump1090-mutability.

    The fact that it still works fine doesn't change that fact.

    There is quite some information that is not displayed in dump1090-mutability

    Stuff like mach number, indicated airspeed and selected altitude.
    It's not supported by all transponders and needs to be actively queried by ATC radar to be broadcast, but it's still nice to have if you want to look at it.

    The dump1090-fa is a bit more advance than mutability ver 1.15, is regularly maintained & updated, and has a prettier map and aircraft table layout.

    The main issue with dump1090-fa to be officially used by other tracking site is that it is not "Generic" like mutablity, as its map carries logo of a competetor "Flightaware", even though its source code has been made open source by Flightaware.

    Yeah it would be nice if that branding was optional.

    On the other hand they are paying for the code to be maintained.
    If you know it doesn't change who you are feeding, it really doesn't matter.

    That bar at the top is a little annoying though and for my personal use i normally change it.

    Just a thought: FR24 can fork dump1090 from Flightaware github, and simply remove the logo if it is offending for them. Then they can compile it and use with their feeder.

    Or may be I can do above forking, remove Flightaware logo, and name the fork "dump1090-generic" ... just kidding, dont want to get involved into this

    Are the graphs configurable in any way?

    I moved my feeder Pi up to that attic a few hours ago.

    Disc Bandwidth 19-06-16 at 4.24.14 PM.png

    I know I am feeding because I have checked my stats but, my bandwidth is only showing for eth and I'm now connected via WiFi, not Ethernet.

    Disk usage is showing but disk I/O has no data.

    I've rebooted a couple of times too.

    disk usage not working is caused by the current collectd version.

    you can install a new version like this:

    Code:
    wget -O /tmp/collectd.deb http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/pool/main/c/collectd/collectd-core_5.8.1-1.3_armhf.deb
    sudo dpkg -i /tmp/collectd.deb
    As for including WiFi in the ethernet graph, i would suggest my version of the graphs.
    https://github.com/wiedehopf/graphs1090#graphs1090

    It will overwrite the adsb receiver version of graphs and you'll have to use another URL to access the graphs.
    Also you would want to remove the old automatic graph generation (sudo rm /etc/cron.d/adsb-receiver-performance-graphs)

    You can also of course look at how i included the WiFi bandwidth in the graph and modify the adsb receiver shell script.
