    Automated Installation of AcarSDeco2 on RPi

    (1) Easy Installation - Just copy-paste one command to run bash script and it does everything.

    (2) Automatic start - systemd service automatically starts it at boot/reboot.

    (3) Easy monitoring & control - Provides commands systemctl status, systemctl stop, systemctl start, and systemctl restart.

    (4) Easy configuration - Provides a separate config file in simple format, each config item on a separate line, starting with --

    (5) Blacklisting of rtl-sdr - The installation script creates a blacklist file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-rtl-sdr.conf with required blacklist entries, preventing error: failed to connect/open rtl-sdr device.

    NOTE:
    AcarSDeco2 requires a dedicated DVB-T dongle.

    If you install it on a RPi already running dump1090 and one DVB-T dongle, then you will need to plugin a second dongle for AcarSDeco2, and serialize both dongles, one serial-number 00000101 and other serial-number 00000102

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update 
    sudo apt-get install rtl-sdr
    
    rtl_eeprom -s 00000101 -d 0
    rtl_eeprom -s 00000102 -d 1
    After serialization, unplug, then replug both dongles.

    Use these serial numbers in config files of dump1090 and AcarSDeco2.

    If you have not installed dump1090 and have installed only AcarSDeco2, then only one DVB-T dongle is required. In this case no need to serialize the dongle.
