Piaware 3.5.0 installed and has been running nicely on my RPi3 for a few days. I have a java script that takes some port 30003 data from dump1090-fa and puts it into a remote MySQL database, again working nicely for the same period except I note that the time of the records is in UTC! I don’t want UTC time otherwise I have to recode all my queries and PHP scripts to cater for this. I check the RPi system time and is set to UTC.
So I login to the Rpi3 and run “sudo raspi-config” and set the locale to NZ and time zone to Auckland because that’s where I live. A reboot and no dump1090 connection to my Skyview page.
I connect a keyboard and monitor up to the RPi3 and restart, the screen cycles through some info eventually settling on a screen that says all piaware settings are OK (normal) and other system parameters like CPU and network settings. This page cycles itself every 30 seconds and no login prompt is offered.
There are three options:
- Alt+F1 This screen
- Alt+F2 Command line login
- Alt+F10 System logs
Looking at the logs it seems no messages are being sent to Flightaware, there is mention of the time being reset and depending on what point I look at the logs depends on what information is shown, but I see nothing that points me to a remedy.
Connecting to the RPi3 both through Putty and by selecting Alt+F2 keyboard connection results in an immediate disconnection.
Can Piaware not run nicely without the system clock being set to UTC?
