    FR24 Feeder Settings, Process Arguements don't stick

    As shown in the quick start guide I'm putting the follow string of text in the process arguments field of the FR24 settings

    --net --gain -10 --lat xx.xxxx --lon -yyy.yyyy

    When I click save, then click restart those settings don't stick, they disappear. Can anyone shed some light on what I am doing wrong?

    Thank you

    Reboot RPi, then try again

    If rebooting does not solve the problem, SSH to RPi, and give these commands, then try to save settings.

    Code:
    sudo mount -o remount,rw /
    
    sudo chmod a+rw /etc/fr24feed.ini

    To avoid having the same problem after the next reboot you can run these commands:

    Code:
    sudo mount -o remount,rw /
    sudo sed -i -e 's?$(mount | grep " on / " | grep rw)?{ mount | grep " on / " | grep rw; }?' /usr/lib/fr24/fr24feed_updater.sh &>/dev/null

    Cut it at the roots...
    Nip it in the bud...

    sudo rm /usr/lib/fr24/fr24feed_updater.sh

    FR24 software developers are going to kill me for suggesting this

    (Not trying to hijack this thread - I just want to make a comment)

    You two (and Oblivion) simply amaze me. Really.

    I'm great with hardware. I'm OK with software. But, coding and programming? Forget it. I feel like I'm too old to learn. I have to copy and save all of this in (Notes when I'm using my Mac) so I can even remember it. I so wish I could do more.

    For now, I'm doing what I can, and watching all of this.

    Dear glen4cindy,
    I am feeling the same way. I am new to flighttrackingh and probably also too old to learn programming etc. Being retired for some time is nice, but also has some disadvantages.
