    You have to see why the service is failing. It's individual to everyones particular install so no one quick fix.

    Run it in full output instead

    sudo service fr24feed stop
    sudo fr24feed

    And watch

    - Run command to check status
    sudo fr24feed-status
    .deb install sudo fr24feed --status

    If service is not running, diagnose WHY
    - Did the installs script fail?
    - Did you complete the install script questionnaire correctly?
    - Did you wrongly chose DVBT stick when PiAware or other software was already working?
    - Check the basic commands
    sudo service fr24feed stop
    sudo systemctl stop fr24feed
    sudo service fr24feed start
    sudo systemctl start fr24feed

    Still not starting or MLAT or other functions are not working? Visually check WHY..
    - Stop FR24feed
    sudo service fr24feed stop
    sudo systemctl stop fr24feed
    - Start fr24feed with full output
    sudo fr24feed ( !! no 'Service' !! )
    [B]

    Enable log file. Start for a while, stop, and review log
    cat /var/log/fr24feed/fr24feed.log

    @Stealth:

    (1) Have you installed any decoder? If yes, then which one?


    (2) Try following
    Code:
    sudo reboot
    
    sudo systemctl status fr24feed
    .

    I think that's the issue, output is showing that it can't connect to the receiver. I attempted to replicate my Windows set up with Planeplotter as the primary decoder for the Mode-S Beast, but without going through registration/authentication I can't get the data going.

    Post your config please:

    cat /etc/fr24feed.ini

    (you can replace the feed key with xxxxxxx)

    Maybe the ModeS Beast is not reachable via USB in the virtual machine?
    Or are you running on a RPi?

    Your ModeS beast device file should be under /dev/ttyUSB0 i believe.
    Or you can check with
    ls /dev/ttyUSB*

    (which in turn needs to be configured in fr24feed)

    Reading between the lines

    No completed config file.

    Beast via USB to PC
    PC decoding with planeplotter

    Linux on laptop attempting tcp connection to PC.

    Of which I outlined an example.

    But if not clear enough open to rewording if advised

    Current test setup is on a dedicated notebook running current 64 bit Ubuntu release
    Mode-S Beast connected via serial
    Planeplotter running under Wine
    Planefinder linux feeder
    VRS under Wine (to come)

    Problem I'm having is that there is a lot of information on many permutations, but finding what's required for my specific need is an issue.

    I'm coming the conclusion that I have to adjust the data path from that which exists on my Windows machine. So to go back to basics, do I use FR24feed as the primary decoder, that is reading the Beast on ttyUSB0, then feed the other stuff via TCP?

    I can't find the screen dumps at the moment that I assume Oblivian is referring to, so if anyone has configs for the fr24feed.ini and planeplotter that suit it would be appreciated.

    Trying to run stuff on wine etc will be adding more layers of difficulty if you have an exisiting working setup. When the feeder can run on Linux, and use data from an In place receiver and decoder over local network

    Which is why I mocked up 2 scenarios to choose. No pics as not all setups will work the same (add conjecture if copied) and non members can't see attachments.

    So written in textually how a basic point to point would be, ignoring extra software to start with.

    https://forum.flightradar24.com/showthread.php?p=116906

    It depends on if people have hardware to spare, and wish to continue to use things like SBS audio. or wish to migrate solely to a new non windows device

    My own setup I've moved the receiver over too (and gave my example).

    And planeplotter etc use network source data.
    The alternative was setup planeplotter as receiver (likely as you have it now) And feeder got data by network out

    I'll start out with getting the FR24feed up and running using what you have posted, then build on that. I'm not interested in running two machines, so it will be the FR feed that goes if it can't be done. I'm using existing hardware, so no cost, as opposed to the $125 for the pi and its bits.

    One problem is that it's best to use beast data for feeding other clients as well and fr24feed doesn't provide beast as an output.

    Let's just check first that the ModeS beast is present, so could you show the output of:
    Code:
    ls /dev/ttyUSB*
    I would just use beast-splitter, you will have to compile it though:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential debhelper dh-systemd libboost-system-dev libboost-program-options-dev libboost-regex-dev libboost-filesystem-dev
    git clone https://github.com/flightaware/beast-splitter
    cd beast-splitter
    dpkg-buildpackage -b
    sudo dpkg -i ../beast-splitter_3.7.0_amd64.deb
    Then configure it so that it runs:
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/default/beast-splitter
    Change the no after ENABLED to yes.
    Ctrl-x to exit, y and enter to save.

    Restart beast-splitter so the configuration takes effect and then check the log if it has started properly.
    Code:
    sudo systemctl restart beast-splitter
    sudo journalctl --no-pager -u beast-splitter
    Then you can use this fr24feed.ini:
    Code:
    receiver="beast-tcp"
    fr24key="xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
    host="127.0.0.1:30005"
    bs="no"
    raw="no"
    logmode="1"
    logpath="/var/log/fr24feed"
    mlat="yes"
    mlat-without-gps="yes"
    use-http=yes
    http-timeout=20
    You can pfclient the same, point it at 127.0.0.1 on port 30005 for beast data.

    If you need other outputs you can change the configuration file so an AVR output is provided as well.

    As for the stuff with wine, i have no idea

    Errr.. I'm using tcp data on 30334 for exactly that to 3 other clients incl planeplotter and FA (now with mlat since windows feeder never added it) all set to beast input.

    It changes roles when not using dump1090 devices.
    Believe toggling raw out keeps it binary when using a beast receiver. It sure not a pre decoded avr text dump and believe Gunter worked with them to get it native.
