    Automated Instal of FR24 Feeder on Debian & Ubuntu amd64 on Intel 64bit Computer

    Automated installation of FR24 Feeder on Debian & Ubuntu amd64 on Intel 64bit Computer


    1. The script installs binary fr24feed_1.0.18-5_amd64.tgz.

      This binary is several years old, but this is the only option currently available for trouble free installation and operation on 64 bit Intel computers.



    2. The user should install dump1090 (mutability or flightaware). The script does NOT install any version of dump1090.




    Advantages

    (1) Easy installation - just copy and paste one command to run the bash script and it will do everything.

    (2) Auto start - the systemd service automatically starts fr24feed when booting / rebooting.

    (3) Simple monitoring and control - provides the commands "systemctl status fr24feed", "systemctl stop fr24feed", "systemctl start fr24feed" and "systemctl restart fr24feed".

    (4) Easy Setup - Generates configuration file /etc/fr24feed.ini, which can be edited by user at any time to add/modify settings.
