    @inoc:
    What receiver and port did you set on settings pages http://<IP of RPi>:8754/settings.html (or in file fr24feed.ini)?

    If no version of dump1090 is installed separately, then Fr24 Feeder uses its integral dump1090 and receiver should be set as "dvb-t".

    If any other version of dump1090 is installed (dump1090 MR, dump1090-fa, or dump1090-mutability), then receiver type should be either "avr(tcp), port 30002" or "beast(tcp) port 30005".

    Just got through re-executing the fr24 script in order to post the results of its not installing - this time it worked ??, no changes from the previous failed attempt, other than the failed attempt.

    ;however, (ain't it always the way) when I attempted to manually configure the FR24 interface to dump1090-mutability I chose " 4 - ModeS Beast (USB/Network)" thinking that must be the recommended 3005 port -
    although I also selected to participate in MLAT and FR24 stted to participate I must select: " 1 - DVBT Stick (USB)".
    anyway after selecting "4" it stumped with: "Step 4.3A - Please enter your receiver's COM port number/device path"

    - so I ^Ced (canceled) and reran the script, this time selecting: "Would you like to use autoconfig (*yes*/no)$:yes"

    ...restarted FR24 and it's apparently running.

    I don't have a clue as to what's going on, this is like DOS on steroids - or hemorrhoids.

    But thanks for your help

    @inoc:
    When running the script, you have to choose as follows:

    The "1 - DVB-T (USB)" should be chosen if the DVB-T stick is plugged into the same RPi on which you are installing the FR24 feeder.

    The "USB/Network" is chosen only if the DVB-T Stick is plugged into another Pi or Laptop or Desktop, connected through LAN to the RPi on which you are installing FR24 feeder.

    The settings page http://<IP of RPi>:8754/settings.html is for configuration AFTER the script has run successfully. Then in that page, choices to be made as shown in my post #11 above.

    Are these directions current?

    Still trying to get FR and FA installed on Raspian using NOOBs. These instructions look like they are what i need. Are they still current? If so, I will make this my last attempt tonight.

    Thanks!!

    IMPORTANT: Dump1090-mutability should be installed BEFORE any of the data feeders are installed


    (4) Install Flightaware feeder from instructions on this page (STEP 2 ONLY): http://flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/install

    (5) Install FR24 feeder from instructions on this page: https://www.flightradar24.com/raspberry-pi using command
    Code:
    sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - http://repo.feed.flightradar24.com/install_fr24_rpi.sh)"

    (6) REBOOT the Pi

    (7) ENJOY!!!

    YES, these are still valid.

    If you are using Raspbian STRETCH:

    (1) Two workarounds reqired as detailed here:

    https://forum.flightradar24.com/thre...ll=1#post96279


    AND

    (2) One workaround here:

    https://forum.flightradar24.com/thre...allation-issue

    BETTER USE JESSIE. NO WORKAROUND REQUIRED FOR JESSIE

    First two workarounds AFTER installation of dump1090-mutability, but BEFORE installing FR24 feeder, i.e. in following sequence:

    1. Install dump1090-mutability
    2. Workaround for missing rtl-sdr rules
    3. Worksround dirmngr
    4. Install fr24feed
    5. Indtall Flightaware feeder

    Download Jessie lite on your Windows or Mac computer from this link:

    http://downloads.raspberrypi.org/ras...essie-lite.zip

    Clicking above link will download following file on your Windows or Mac computer:

    2017-07-05-raspbian-jessie-lite.zip


    Download etcher from http://www.etcher.io, and install it on your Windows or Mac computer.

    Burn the downloaded Jessie_lite image to your microSD card using etcher. This will remove Noobs, and install Jessie Lite.

    NOTE:
    You wont be able to use keyboard, mouse, and monitor with Lite version as it is does not have GUI (Graphical User Interface). You can access Pi by SSH from your Windows or Mac computer after installing PuTTY. To enable SSH, you will also have to create a file named SSH in the microSD card when it is plugged into your Windows or Mac computer.

    If you prefer to use keyboard, mouse and monitor connected to your Pi, then dont use Lite version of Jessie, use full version.

    Download full version of Jessie by clicking this link:

    http://downloads.raspberrypi.org/ras...ian-jessie.zip

    Clicking above link will download following file on your Windows or Mac computer:

    Thanks a ton! Following you directions, I was able to get all three services working on my box. (FR24, FA, RB24). That's on Raspian Stretch. Would there be a benefit to installing and running it on Jessie Lite now that it's all working?

    And is the difference between "Lite" and "normal" that the normal package installs the GUI?
