    anyway please share your configuration, it is shown with the following command (please replace the key with xxxxxx):

    cat /etc/fr24feed.ini

    yeah what command did you run to get that error?

    normally fr24feed starts by itself in the background.
    if you start it manually you get that error because the dongle is already in use.

    what does the command:

    fr24feed-status

    give as output?

    It looks like it was working, this is why I got this error

    [ ok ] FR24 Feeder/Decoder Process: running.
    [ ok ] FR24 Stats Timestamp: 2019-03-23 19:18:18.
    [ ok ] FR24 Link: connected [UDP].
    [ ok ] FR24 Radar: T-LLSD4.
    [ ok ] FR24 Tracked AC: 5.
    [ ok ] Receiver: connected (3723 MSGS/0 SYNC).
    [ ok ] FR24 MLAT: ok [UDP].
    [ ok ] FR24 MLAT AC seen: 3.


    is there any way I can see the aircraft list in the terminal?

    Thanks for the help!

    You can just visit the IP address of your RPi as a website, replace the IP in the following link with the IP of your pi:


    http://192.168.2.44/dump1090/

    This should show you a map with aircraft.
