I had to install Ubuntu back on my Netbook today. I couldn’t get Piaware to install right. But after a few minutes, I saw that it was 2.1-4~dev so anyways. I got up and working on it.

Thanks for the help that FA and Obj puts into this.


Feeder Type: PiAware (Debian Package Add-on) 2.1-4~dev

I tend to do development “in public” so having people running development versions is not something I avoid, but…

expect development versions to set your house on fire, kick your dog, and generally be badly behaved. you have been warned.

If you want to build from source with the current stable version, there is a separate tag for each version (e.g. v2.1-3)

Thanks for the reply. I do have 2 dogs. But I don’t kick them. lol.

When I was reinstalling everything from the following commands, I was getting an error of no dir. So when I looked back threw what the past commands did, I noticed that it was 2.1-4 and not 2.1-3. So I have the last command to match to it would work. So I got my Netbook back up and running.

sudo apt-get install build-essential debhelper librtlsdr-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev pkg-config tcl8.5-dev autoconf python3-dev python-virtualenv libz-dev git
cd ~; git clone https://github.com/mutability/dump1090.git
cd ~/dump1090; dpkg-buildpackage -b
cd ~; git clone https://github.com/flightaware/piaware_builder.git
cd ~/piaware_builder; ./sensible-build.sh
cd ~/piaware_builder/package; dpkg-buildpackage -b
sudo dpkg -i ~/dump1090-mutability_1.15~dev_*.deb
sudo dpkg -i ~/piaware_builder/piaware_2.1-3_*.deb

This will get you the stable version:

cd ~; git clone https://github.com/flightaware/piaware_builder.git -b v2.1-3

Thanks Obj. I’ll update my sheet… Thanks for the reply.

Warning noted, but seriously, thank you. Love your style and knowledge.
