    Hi

    It came back about 10 mins ago. I thought the data was live but it looks like it on a 1hr update, I'll see around 12:15 this afternoon as it hasn't updated in the last 10 mins. It seems to be fine. All the data is there, not gaps just not as it happens (within reason and processing etc etc...)

    Not a new Pi, just an OS update and I'm trying to move all my feeds to the Pi - just not sure about Planefinder as I've been told it hogs the CPU - might try it on an B+ and see what happens.
    I'm using 242 - is there a newer build?

    Thanks

    That's an update - 1hr 6 mins after last one - that must be the update schedule.

    Any of the compiled versions compatible with openwrt?

    Hi,

    Hi, just reporting that fr24feed_arm-rpi_242 works well on top of dump1090 (from https://github.com/MalcolmRobb/dump1090) on a fairly basic Raspi.

    This is what I did

    # git clone & make etc. to build dump1090
    # wget & tar etc. to get latest fr24feed_xxx_xxx

    # remove dvb_usb_rtl28xxu kernel module if it is present
    if [ -n "$(lsmod | grep dvb_usb_rtl28xxu)" ] ; then rmmod dvb_usb_rtl28xxu ; fi

    tmpdir="$(pwd)" # save current working dir
    workdir="/path/to/smewhere" # need to have the dump1090 public_html dir here
    cd "$workdir" # to find ./public_html directory and e.g. gmap.html file in it

    # going to replace "--stats-every 600" with "--quiet" when I get the antenna done
    nohup /path/to/dump1090 --net --fix --aggressive --stats-every 600 > /var/log/dump1090.log 2>&1 < /dev/null &

    cd "$tmpdir" # back to original working dir
    sleep 1 # sleep a while to allow dump1090 to start properly, not sure if this is really needed

    # use /path/to/fr24feed_x64_242 in the bigger box
    nohup /path/to/fr24feed_arm-rpi_242 --fr24key=mykey --bs-ip=localhost --bs-port=30003 > /var/log/fr24feed.log 2>&1 < /dev/null &
    All of that was really straight forward both in Raspi and in a Fedora 20 x86_64 box where my other receiver is connected to.
    About the only extra things I needed to do were to install some libusbxx-devel packages in the Fedora, and Raspi needed a reboot after various mumudvb etc. tests (using dvb_usb_rtl28xxu kernel module) before dump1090 started to work.

    But I have a question, too: my receivers have seen and reported several flights during the last hour or so,
    but my stat pages (https://www.flightradar24.com/premiu...s.php?id=14xxx) do show these yet.

    Roughly how often the stat pages are updated, i.e. how long does it take (min/max/typical) berore the flights seen and reported by my feeders get to the stat pages?

    Warm thanks to everybody who have built FR24 service and enabled contributing interesting data so easily and with dirt-cheap HW.
    I paid 40€ or the Raspi with a 2A power supply, and 10€ a pop for the DVB-T sticks.

    Now I need to build a better antenna for both receivers, probably going following this guidance: http://antirez.com/news/46

    Hello,

    signup via the feeder for linux (using Ubuntu 14.04) does not work.
    dump1090 on the other works flawlessly.
    See the thread that I've opened: http://forum.flightradar24.com/threa...-from-the-quot
    I tried both the x86 and 64bit clients.
    If anyone had this problem please reply.

    Quick bug report: the feeder exhausts available file descriptors after a while and stops feeding data properly. The website stats show the feeder "online" but no data available.

    Logs have periodic complaints with errno 24 (24 is EMFILE - "too many open files"):

    Code:
    [n]pinging the server
    [i]sent 37 planes in 1 packets
    [i]sent 37 planes in 1 packets
    [i]sent 36 planes in 1 packets
    [i]sent 34 planes in 1 packets
    [e]Socket is not valid, errno: 24
    [i]sent 36 planes in 1 packets
    [e]Socket is not valid, errno: 24
    The process file descriptors look like this:

    Code:
    pi@rpi ~ $ sudo lsof -p 2129

    This is using "fr24feed_arm-rpi_242". The process has been up for a bit over a month at this point (but it might have stopped feeding a while back - I don't check it too often)

    I could use some configuration help.
    I have a Raspberry Pi and have installed both FR24FEED and PIAWARE. The FR24 is working great but PIAWARE is working at all.
    pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo piaware-status
    dump1090 is not running.
    faup1090 is not running.
    piaware is not running.
    no program appears to be listening for connections on port 30005.
    no program appears to be listening for connections on port 10001.
    piaware is NOT connected to port 10001.
    piaware is NOT connected to FlightAware.
    got 'couldn't open socket: connection refused'
    maybe dump1090 is NOT producing data on port 30005.
    got 'couldn't open socket: connection refused'
    maybe dump1090 is NOT producing data on port 10001.
    I also noticed that after installing everything, there are three folders where dump1090 exists. Can someone give me some insight as to how I get piaware working alongside fr24. If you need to see any files or configurations, help me by being explicit as to how to get what you need to see since I am new to LINUX.

    You know, PiAware is from FlightAware - maybe you should get in touch on their Forums

    Done that. There are people on this one that are doing what I am trying to do. I look forward to hearing from them.
