How to Make PiAware Compatible with fr24feed

I have built fr24feed in Debian system, how can I use this device to run PiAware at the same time

https://github.com/wiedehopf/adsb-wiki/wiki/Installing-dump1090-fa

Or let the script handle it:
https://github.com/wiedehopf/adsb-wiki/wiki/Automatic-installation-for-dump1090-fa

Then just install piaware.

Saying debian system, so you’re not using an ARM based computer?
In this case you will need to compile piaware and dump1090-fa.

You can also use piaware with dump1090-mutability as long as that provides beast data on port 30005.
Going that route the above instructions are not valid.

What is your exact setup, what does your /etc/fr24feed.ini look like?

My Debian system is built on a desktop computer, which is also my NAS.
/etc/fr24feed.ini
receiver=“dvbt”
fr24key="****************"
bs=“yes”
raw=“yes”
logmode=“2”
mlat=“yes”
mlat-without-gps=“yes”

My fr24feed is working properly, and I want to use this system to run piaware at the same time.

  • First change FR24 setting
    receiver=“dvbt”
    to
    receiver=“beast-tcp”
    host=“127.0.0.1:30005”

  • Next PURGE the dump1090-mutability ver 1.14 which was installed by the fr24feed when it is run in receiver=“dvbt” mode.
    To check it’s existance:
    apt-cache policy dump1090-mutability
    To purge it:
    sudo dpkg --purge dump1090-mutability

  • Last install dump1090-fa and piaware data feeder by following method

Piaware v 3.7.1 on Debian 10.0 (Buster) amd64 / Intel PC
