    RPi / Linux - FR24Feed Diagnostic Commands

    Supplemental to Issues being raised to developers with Feeder/Dump1090 thread here

    Version 19-8 has option to compress and send diagnostic data to FR24 support via support@flightradar24.com for personal assistance.
    You can download it either by opening URL in browser: http://RECEIVER_IP:8754/diagnostics_dump.tgz or by running:
    sudo /usr/lib/fr24/dump_diagnostics.sh

    Preemptive changes:
    Replace config reference of 'localhost' to 127.0.0.1 when using TCP modes
    Optional: Fixing dpkg installer in stuck state: sudo dpkg --configure -a

    Manual commands:

    Show current / local available version
    apt-cache policy fr24feed
    fr24feed --version


    View service-start error log:
    (Must be temporarily enabled in config or during setup)
    cat /var/log/fr24feed/fr24feed.log

    Show Dump1090-Mutability version if exists (If 'Unable to locate package' manual install is required)
    apt-cache policy dump1090-mutability

    Manual Install of included 1.14:
    Code:
    sudo /usr/lib/fr24/install_dump1090.sh
    Check for existence of other dump1090
    apt-cache policy dump1090

    Show status of feeder
    fr24feed-status

    Feeder Satus
    All above functions can cause either of the bellow errors when viewing status:

    FR24Feed core component not running:
    [FAIL] FR24 Feeder/Decoder Process ... failed!

    FR24feed Core running. But secondary issue:
    - Possible Ping rights
    - Locked/in-use USB Issue
    - Dump1090 didn't install with the script

    [ ok ] FR24 Feeder/Decoder Process: running.
    [ ok ] FR24 Stats Timestamp: 2018-01-24 09:15:30.
    [ ok ] FR24 Link: connected [UDP].
    [ ok ] FR24 Radar:
    [ ok ] FR24 Tracked AC:.
    [FAIL] Receiver: down ... failed!
    [FAIL] FR24 MLAT: not running ... failed!


    * Ensure localhost replaced with 127.0.0.1 If in config
    ** Re run USB blacklist command and reboot/check
    Code:
    sudo wget -O /etc/udev/rules.d/rtl-sdr.rules "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/osmocom/rtl-sdr/master/rtl-sdr.rules"
    *** Jessie and pre 19-8 users may need to change ping rights
    Code:
    sudo chmod 4755 /bin/ping
    **** run above checks for Dump1090 issues
    Code:
    sudo /usr/lib/fr24/install_dump1090.sh
