Hi all, I am having trouble with a rpi2 based feeder. For more than a year it has been super reliable but power was recently removed to relocate it to roof. Now have to hire a rigger to access roof due to height safety.
Piaware SD card 3.5.3, access via ssh.
Feeder checks in every few minutes
Only 2 green squares on stats page, MLAT square is red, data statistics all cross hatched/blank
Top shows piaware console running, but no dump1090
2 previous apps named Direwolf (ham radio iGate) and RTLFM show running
No local map at port 8080
Possible causal factors:
Pi power was cut without sd command
FA dongle was moved from previous usb port
Another rtlsdr that was being used for Direwolf/RTLFM has been removed
Rtl test -p = found 1 rtlsdr usb interface error - 6 fail to open device 0
Systemctl1 status piaware = uploader active (green)
Piaware status = master process running, nothing else
Multiple reboots, no change
Non decorus power cut has broken something
Removing 1 rtlsdr and/or moving the FA dongle to a different usb port is the cause
Direwolf and/or RTLFM are claiming the FA dongle first
I haven’t updated piaware because it was running so well, but prepared to risk it now
No physical access to pi so would like to try all software remedies first before paying for a rigger to attend.
Bearing in mind how old my piaware is, need to carefully consider upgrade path?
Any advice appreciated please. Thanks.
