    Which RPi version are you using?

    The image is most likely too old to support the 3A+ for example, not sure about other hardware versions.

    If you want an image that comes with a current version of dump1090, try for example OPTION 4 mention in this post:
    https://forum.flightradar24.com/thre...ll=1#post64528

    You can also just start with a Raspbian Stretch Lite and install dump1090-fa like mentioned in OPTION 3 of above link.
    dump1090-fa is the continuation of the dump1090-mutability development.

    I'm using a 3B+ so possibly that's the reason, thanks for mentioning it as it wouldn't have occurred to me.

    I've started following a guide so hopefully it will all go well considering I've got no Linux experience.

    Once I've got FR up and running I might see about feeding to more than one site.

    I personally prefer to use Raspbian image (OPTION- 3).

    Both Pi24 image and Piaware image are stripped down and customised to one specific use: "To feed data to their site".

    OPTION-3, i.e. using Raspbian Lite image from http://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian , and installing the dump1090 of your choice (mutability or fa), and then installing only those data feeders which you want, is the most flexible and powerful install.

    After burning the Raspbian image, and while the microSD card is still in card reader of your Desktop/Laptop, click on the drive letter of microSD card (will show as "boot"), and in opened folder, create a new text file, and name it ssh. This is necessary to enable SSH.

    I'm currently doing that one but am having an issue with building the dump 1090 mutability package at the moment.

    I've followed the guide and got no error messages or issues till now, apparently there's something wrong with librtlsdr-dev and libusb-1.0-0-dev so it wont build.

    Going to see if downloading them again helps.

    Edit

    Seems that librtlsdr didin't install correctly, seems to be ok now.

    If you don't want to compile dump1090-mutability you can just install dump1090-fa: (this doesn't include another feeder, it's just another dump1090 version)

    Code:
    wget http://flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/files/packages/pool/piaware/p/piaware-support/piaware-repository_3.6.3_all.deb
    sudo dpkg -i piaware-repository_3.6.3_all.deb
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt upgrade -y
    sudo apt remove -y dump1090-mutability dump1090
    sudo lighty-disable-mod dump1090
    sudo apt install -y dump1090-fa

    Thank you for the idea however everything is now done and I'm feeding to FR again along with the ability to view the dump feed like I wanted to.

    I'll have a bash at some other feeds tomorrow along with making a four leg spider antenna.

    I experienced this on a pi zero w build last week, I copy and pasted all the lines to get the dependencies and librtlsdr-dev and libusb-1.0-0-dev needed a second try guess Id have seen it if I did one at a time :-)

    Hi, I have been working on this raspberry pi thing all week. Trying so hard to work around the drop of support for windows. Anyways..currently my problem is trying to boot from this image (or the pi24 one). I get this "light bolt error", which going by the card insert in the raspberry pi kit, I am not using Pi 3 B+ compatible software. Is there something I am missing?
    thanks!
