We’ve released PiAware 1.18-1 with the following improvements:
Cache the mac address once it is known, for performance.
Include full piaware version (like 1.18-1 vs just 1.18) in login message.
Fix “too many nested evaluations” error on systems without an eth0 device.
This is a fairly minor update from version 1.17, unless you are running a Raspberry Pi Model A or A+, in which case PiAware will probably work for you for the first time. Due to important bug fixes in connection handling, if you are running PiAware below version 1.17 we recommend that you upgrade PiAware either by updating the package or writing a new SD card.
For command line updates / package users:
wget http://flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/files/piaware_1.18-1_armhf.deb sudo dpkg -i piaware_1.18-1_armhf.deb sudo apt-get install -fy sudo /etc/init.d/piaware restart
For SD card users running a release prior to 1.16, download and install the new image: piaware.flightcdn.com/piaware-sd … -2.img.zip or for full instructions, follow the steps on the build page again to re-image your device. If you’ve setup WiFi on your SD card and you write a new SD card image, you will have to re-configure it after this update.
