Error message trying to install PiAware on MX Linux

Hi,

I’m running Linux MX (19.2 386) on an old laptop. My hope is to use my old unused laptop as a permanent contributor to FlightAware.

Following the guide here: Howto Install Piaware 3.8.1 on Ubuntu and Debian amd64

I have successfully installed Dump1090-fa 3.81 and it works! (I can see aircraft).

However I have problems with installing PiAware.
I follow the instructions all the way until ( 3.3 - Clone piaware source code, build package, and install package.)
Using Case 3 I am unable to “git clone http://github.com/flightaware/piaware_builder” because it asks me for a username and password? Instead I downloaded the .zip file from github and used that.

I use the script “./sensible-build.sh buster” which runs and then fails with this error…

error: RPC failed, curl 56 GnuTLS recv error (-9): Error decoding the received TLS packet.
fatal: early EOF
fatal: index-pack failed

Any ideas?

Another related Howto, though it may not solve your current error message issue.

Installed Piaware Data Feeder on MX-Linux on Intel PC

Regarding error message, it may be due to tcl-tls. Do not install it from repository. Build tcltls-rebuild from source code.

(1) Please go to this post:

Howto Install Piaware 3.8.1 on 64 bit Raspbian OS / Pi4

(2) Scroll down to following item:
3.2 - Build & Install dependency tcl-tls from source code.

Hi abcd567,
I’ve seen your posts all over the place on here and other ADS-B sites. So thanks for your contribution!

I followed your first link. It looks similar except for a different set of dependencies. I worked through the list. Most were already installed, some couldn’t be found, and some new ones installed.
Anyway running the “./sensible-build.sh buster” it completed! The package built, and the package installed.

I think I’m good to go. I need to work on the configuration next. It’s also not clear to me if I need to start dump1090-fa to make this all work? Or if the PiAware is now running automatically?

It’s 0109am here in the UK and I’ve been trying to get this to work for the last 6-7 hours… time for bed!

MX-Linux by default disables systemd, and startup is by sysV init.d files.

Both the dump1090-fa and piaware are designed to start by systemd. I am not sure if they provide sysV init.d files. You will need to enable systemd to make these start automatically.

Quote from my 2018 post in FR24 forum:

Although MX-Linux is shipped with both systemd and sysvinit, by default systemd is disabled. The developers of MX-Linux recommend to keep systemd disabled, and use sysvinit.

Dump1090-mutability, FR24Feeder, Plane Finder Feeder, and FlightAware Feeder detect that systemd has been disabled, and install startup files in /etc/init.d folder for sysvinit. Unfortunately Opensky network feeder does not install the init file needed by sysvinit. It installs only .service files for systemd. As a result, Opensky feeder does not start at boot, and cannot be started manually as well by command “sudo service opensky start”. This situation can be overcome either by enabling systemd OR manually creating init file.

The systemd can be enabled at boot when Grub is displayed. Choose advanced boot option, and in that option enable systemd.

0137 and I’m still up!

I restarted my computer.
looking at the piaware.log I can see it has correctly connected and logged in to FlightAware with my username (quite clever because I haven’t touched a config file!).

However it says no ADS-B data program is serving on port 30005.

What do I need to do here? Is this something to do with systemd? FlightAware seems to have started ok.

It is dump1090-fa which serves data on port 30005.

Check status of dump1090-fa, first by systemd command, and if it does not work (not found), then by sysVinit command

sudo systemctl status dump1090-fa
sudo service dump1090-fa status
sudo /etc/initd/dump1090-fa start

EDIT

After installing dump1090-fa, did you reboot the computer? If not, then reboot computer and check again.

sudo systemctl status dump1090-fa
System has not been booted with systemd as init system (PID 1). Can’t operate.
Failed to connecy to bus: Host is down

The Local Flightaware server shows the error

  • Problem fetching data from dump1090.

    The displayed map data will be out of date.*

What are the outputs of these two commands?

Just type dump1090-fa and press Enter key. What do you see? If there is continous flow of output, press Ctrl+C keys to break it.

Note:
You can post the output with [code] above it and [/code] below it to display properly formatted code.

$ dump1090-fa
Tue Jun  9 22:57:03 2020 BST  dump1090-fa 3.8.1 starting up.

Detached kernel driver

Allocating 4 zero-copy buffers

The output holds here until I pickup an aircraft (not a lot flying and I need to sort out a better antenna).

Does installing dump1090-fa supposed to make it start with system start and run in background?
Even when I start manually like above (I’ve used the --interactive to better show acft), it still doesn’t seem to put data for Piaware to send? Piaware seems to think it’s not running.

Have a look at my stats page. Something is getting through…

However I’m getting nothing on local:8080 shown

**Problem fetching data from dump1090.**
AJAX call failed (error: Not Found). Maybe dump1090 is no longer running?
The displayed map data will be out of date.

Seems the installation did not go properly and did not install startup files.

Purge the installation, then reinstall, and reboot by following command, then check if piaware stopped complaining “no program listening at port 30005”.

sudo dpkg --purge dump1090-fa 

sudo dpkg -i dump1090-fa_3.8.1_*.deb 

sudo reboot 

I originally installed dump1090-fa as root (does that make any difference?)
Anyway I have reinstalled with sudo and the commands you listed above. All completed successfully.

Everything seems to be exactly the same as before.

I tried manually starting dump1090-fa and then running sudo service dump1090-fa status
I still get dump1090-fa: unrecognised service even though I know it’s running.

What is expected behaviour if I do not see any aircraft?

Will I get:

**Problem fetching data from dump1090.**
AJAX call failed (error: Not Found). Maybe dump1090 is no longer running?
The displayed map data will be out of date.

Not seeing an aircraft may be because of dump1090 is not running. In this case you will get:

Problem fetching data from dump1090.** AJAX call failed (error: Not Found). Maybe dump1090 is no longer running? The displayed map data will be out of date.

 

It may also be because of some problem with the dvbt dongle or some problem with antenna and coax. In that case you will not see the AJAX warning quoted above.

Does piaware stop complaining “no adsb program listening on port 30005”, or still complaining. If dump1090-fa is running ok, even with no planes (due to problems with antenna/coax/connectors, or no flight), piaware will not complain “no program listening on port 30005”. Instead it will say “0 messages received”.

See the log file above. Something seemed to work towards the end?
I’m not sure if this happened once of the times I manually started dump1090-fa. I’m confused about what is going on.

This is my current understanding

  1. dump1090-fa is installed. If I start the program I can see some aircraft (not many)
  2. PiAware is installed. It seems to be running ok. I can view the local:1080 page but I never see any aircraft (even when I’ve started dump1090-fa and i’m watching the messages come in).
  3. My user stats page on Flightaware shows some acft have been sent through at some point, but not many.
  4. The PiAware log file shows a lot of entries for No ADS-B data program is running on port 30005, but occasionally seems to show it working.

ok if I start dump1090-fa with --net I seem to get something happening. I think that may have been what I did when the log file showed the Input connected to localhost:30005 messages.
