Not quite the response I expected for a restart request

I cut off life-support and all is good again

Is your Pi called Marvin?

1 Like

No.

I’d have to load Android on my Pi before I could name it Marvin.

It seems that once upon a time there was an Android up for feeding Flightaware from Android.

@abcd567 has tried to load piaware on every other operating system under the sun. Maybe he could get Android and dump1090/piaware running under Android on the Pi and then I could rename it Marvin.

The Frankenstein installs. :wink:

Genuine laugh out loud from me on that one.

I’m still waiting for the instructions on installing piaware on a smart refrigerator that has an operating system based on linux. I’m sure it’ll come one day :smiley:

If someone gifts me that refrigerator, I will whole heartedly try to install piaware on it and post the instructions :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Ahh but now I’ve sowed the seed, if ever your fridge packs up, you’ll have that in the back of your mind when you go shopping for a new one!

Need to get dump1090 running on NetBSD. I’m pretty sure that there’s a port for pretty much anything with a cpu in it somewhere.

You’ll need gmake (GNU make) on BSD. The standard BSD make expects different syntax and the dump1090 makefile isn’t written for it.

This is beyond my capability to modify Makefile to meet BSD requirement. I give up.

There’s even a flight track viewer available for some garmin watches.

I have one, but did not try it so far.
