Graphs1090 on Radarcape?

Just experimenting. Trying to see if I can install the graphs onto my Radarcape. First thing I thought was to install lighttpd, which is probably not on it. Sort of successful install but below is the bottom lines of the install

Packages successfully installed!
Overwriting /etc/collectd/collectd.conf, the old file has been moved to /etc/collectd/collectd.conf.graphs1090
Non-standard configuration detected, you need to change the data URL in /etc/collectd/collectd.conf!
Some features are not available on jessie!
Created symlink from /etc/systemd/system/default.target.wants/graphs1090.service to /lib/systemd/system/graphs1090.service.
All done! Graphs available at
It may take up to 10 minutes until the first data is displayed

Now I have all the lines if someone needs them. The graphs did not display but any further suggestions. There are obviously some more things required.

Just tried the tar 1090 maps too, not good, but got an idea though…

You don’t have dump1090-fa running.

What image is this, from the stone age?

Oh god, don’t try my stuff on the Radarcape.
Do it on the RPi.

You want to kill your Radarcape and have to re-image it?

Re imaging a radarcape takes 30 secs, unlike an RPI

I see.

Well you’ll need to run dump1090-fa in net-only mode and redirect the data.
Pretty much like on the RPi.
