    Linux DEB for SBS users

    Hi,

    Reading all the messages in this forum it is clear that fr24feed 18-5 is broken with the SBS range of products. I have seen a new version of the Windows and Pi version to fix this, but can't find Linux deb ?

    I have a Ubuntu server which is on 24/7 and so want to use this for fr24feed... I have a Funcube Dongle and a SBS-3 unit, both very capable of receiving flight data, but currently neither work with fr24feed, I am reluctant to go and buy another dongle/or a Pi...

    If the Linux version is around, can someone share it ? I imagine if a Pi version exists, then porting to Linux x64 is pretty easy no ?

    Thanks.

    Adam

    There is no source code available for fr24feed. So no porting.

    Do yourself a favor, buy a RPi 3 B+, the Official Power supply for it and a dongle if you want to continue feeding FR24.

    good dongles: green radarbox dongle / Flightaware Pro Stick Plus
    (both have filtering and an LNA)

    Thanks @wiedehopf

    My question was for the Fr24 team, if they have a new PI version, then porting it (for them to do) to Linux I imagine is easy...

    As I mentioned, I already own two devices capable of collecting flight data, so not keen on spending cash just for fr24feed, especially when it is known that a fix is available for SBS units...

    Thanks

    I meant for FR24 folks to port... once the Pi version is done, I imagine it is just a re-compile for linux i386/x64..

    As I mentioned, I have 2 devices that capture flights perfectly, just not with fr24feed, although a fix is in place for SBS... just need the linux version...

    It would most likely be an easy recompile indeed.
    But i wouldn't expect an answer here, you could open a support ticket.
    In that you would probably hear they have no plans to support anything but Raspbian.

    Haven't read pretty much anything from FR24 employees here for quite some time except for the Windows Feeder being disconintued.

    Good luck nonetheless, a x86_64 feed client that is up to date would sure be nice

    If you use following Linux x86 OS, the latest distro for RPi (fr24feed_1.0.23-8_armhf.deb) will work on it.

    Raspbian Desktop (x86) for PC and Mac

    Installing fr24feed Using debian package for RPi:
    "fr24feed_1.0.23-8_armhf.deb"

    SBS user should use only this option

    NOTE:
    This works ONLY on following OS:
    "Debian Stretch with Raspberry Pi Desktop
    The Raspberry Pi Desktop OS for PC and Mac - based on Debian Stretch"


    https://www.raspberrypi.org/download...ry-pi-desktop/

    Code:
    # Add architecture armhf to use RPi armhf package on i386 / i686 / x86_64 PC: 
    sudo dpkg --add-architecture armhf 
    sudo apt update 
    
    # Install dependencies 
    sudo apt install gcc-6-base:armhf libc6:armhf libgcc1:armhf libstdc++6:armhf 
    
    # Download fr24feed armhf.deb package and install it on i386 / x86_64 PC 
    wget -O fr24feed_1.0.23-8_armhf.deb http://repo-feed.flightradar24.com/rpi_binaries/fr24feed_1.0.23-8_armhf.deb 
    sudo dpkg -i fr24feed_1.0.23-8_armhf.deb 
    
    # Signup and configure receiver 
    sudo fr24feed --signup 
    sudo systemctl restart fr24feed

    Contrary to most, it appears hes a Linux desktop user already, not windows - so wanted the pure Linux build greater than 18 that's available :/

    I'm sure you can get the qemu emulation that Raspbian desktop is doing for armhf going on another distribution.

    But i doubt it's fun to configure it
