    Feeding to Flightradar24 using a USB DVB-T stick on FreeBSD

    Hi people,

    I thought some of you might be interested in the how-to I've drawn up, which explains how to feed using FreeBSD as an OS. Please let me know if you do!

    Cheers,

    netraam

    I am interested, as a learning process.

    I will install freeBSD OS in Oracle Virtual Machine on my Windows Desktop. As first step, I will need link for freeBSD installation/download site.

    Please do post the "how-to feed" you have already drawn.

    Alright, here we go.

    First, everything you need to know when starting out with FreeBSD you'll find here: https://www.freebsd.org/projects/newbies.html

    There is also a pointer to the download section there.

    Then, my write up about feeding to Flightradar24 using FreeBSD as an OS is on my own site: https://www.netraam.nl/ramblings/fee...ck-on-freebsd/

    Good luck, and do not hesitate to ask if you should get stuck!

    Thanks, will do.

    I'd be interested to know if this works for you from within a VM.

    Apparently there is no reason why it should not work in VM.
    Will let you know when I actually do it.

    FIRST ENHANCEMENT, which is ADDITIONAL to steps shown at : https://www.netraam.nl/ramblings/fee...ck-on-freebsd/

    To avoid writing arguments with fr24feed every time I want to start it, I have created a new file and added all arguments there. Now I have to give only " ./fr24feed " command without any argument. The fr24feed linux binary by default picks all arguments from file /etc/fr24feed.ini.

    Code:
    ee /etc/fr24feed.ini

    Copy-pasted following code
    (Replace xxxxxcxxx by your sctual key)

    Code:
    receiver="avr-tcp" 
    host="127.0.0.1:30002" 
    fr24key="xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" 
    bs="no" 
    raw="no" 
    logmode="1" 
    windowmode="0" 
    mpx="no" 
    mlat="yes" 
    mlat-without-gps="yes"

    Made file writeable
    Code:
    chmod 666 /etc/fr24feed.ini
    Now I can view and change settings from another computer

    SECOND ENHANCEMENT, which is ADDITIONAL to steps shown at : https://www.netraam.nl/ramblings/fee...ck-on-freebsd/


    After extracting downloaded fr24feed binary by following command "tar xzvf fr24feed_1.0.18-5_i386.tgz", moved into extracted folder "fr24feed_i386", and issued install command shown below:

    Code:
    cd fr24feed_i386
    install fr24feed /usr/local/bin/fr24feed
    cd ..
    After this enhancement, to start fr24feed, I don't need to be inside the directory "fr24feed_i386", neither do I have to use "./" before fr24feed. I can now start fr24feed from any directory, and simply by typing "fr24feed" and pressing "Enter" key.

    [SOLVED] PROBLEM IN DOWNLOADING fr24feed_i386 BINARY [SOLVED]

    (1) Using "fetch" Command

    Code:

    fetch: https://repo-feed.flightradar24.com/linux_x86_binaries/fr24feed_1.0.18-5_i386.tgz: Authentication error
    WORKAROUND for "fetch" command
    ADD --no-verify-peer at the end of command

    Code:

    .

    root@freebsd:/usr/home/abcd # pkg install wget
    Code:
    root@freebsd:/usr/home/abcd # wget https://repo-feed.flightradar24.com/linux_x86_binaries/fr24feed_1.0.18-5_i386.tgz
