[OUTDATED] Howto Install Piaware 3.8.1 on 64 bit Raspberry Pi OS (Raspbian) / Pi4

Radarbox24 arm64 feeder

Radarbox24 has now made available their rbfeeder_arm64 for 64-bit Raspbian OS. It can be installed by the same bash-script as used for 32-bit Raspbian OS (apt detects that the OS is arm64, and installs the package of rbfeeder & dependencies with arm64 architecture).

sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - http://apt.rb24.com/inst_rbfeeder.sh)"  

If you already have a feeder key

sudo rbfeeder --setkey ‹your sharing key›  

sudo systemctl restart rbfeeder   

If you don’t have a sharing key, a new one will be created automatically when you connect to the RadarBox servers the first time. Go to claims page and claim your station.

The 64-bit mlat-client is not yet available in Radarbox24 repository, hence attempt to install it by sudo apt install mlat-client will fail.

Install 64-bit mlat-client package available at my Github site by following commands:

wget https://github.com/abcd567a/mlat-client-package/releases/download/v1/mlat-client_0.2.11_BUSTER_arm64.deb   

sudo dpkg -i mlat-client_0.2.11_BUSTER_arm64.deb   

Configure mlat

sudo nano /etc/rbfeeder.ini  

In [client] section add three lines with your latitude, longitude and altitude above sea level (in meters)


Scroll down till you see this:


Replace “false” by “true”, so it becomes like this:


Save file (Ctrl+O) and close (Ctrl+X)
Restart rbfeeder

sudo systemmctl restart rbfeeder
