Piaware 3.7.2 insall on top of stretch

I installed piaware 3.7.2. I did not want to install the sd card version. I already have a piaware setup via sd card install and all works well the last 3 years. The issue I am running into is flightaware status page will not load via the pi’s ip address. I have to go to ip:8080 just to get to my dump1090 page. Is there a way to fix this or is it only an option with the sd card image?

Any help on this would be great.

Thank you all

The top level status page is provided by the piaware-web package which is usually only installed on piaware sdcard images. You could try installing that package on a non-piaware-sdcard image but YMMV.

Successfully installed piaware-web on Armbian Buster / OrangePiPC

I have installed dump978-fa 3.7.2, dump1090-fa 3.7.2, and piaware 3.7.2 on Armbian Buster/OrangePiPC using package install.

The dump1090-fa map shows lot of planes (Station 76000).

I never saw a plane on dump978 map or on graphs by @wiedehopf, although the command sudo systemctl status dump978-fa and sudo systemctl status piaware show OK.

I have used following method, as described on
https://flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/install:

wget http://flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/files/packages/pool/piaware/p/piaware-support/piaware-repository_3.7.2_all.deb 
sudo dpkg -i piaware-repository_3.7.2_all.deb 

sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install piaware 

sudo piaware-config allow-auto-updates yes 
sudo piaware-config allow-manual-updates yes 

sudo apt-get install dump1090-fa  

sudo apt-get install dump978-fa  

This is the error I receive when I try to sudo apt-get install dump978-fa

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
dump978-fa : Depends: libsoapysdr0.5-2 but it is not installable
Recommends: skyaware978 but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: soapysdr-module-rtlsdr but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Please see this post:

So would you suggest I do the whole install over again or just change the source to stretch and install dump979 then go back to buster?

Thank you for all this help.

IF your dump1090-fa and piaware are working ok, then no need to install them again.
(verify by sudo systemctl status dump1090-fa and sudo systemctl status piaware)

In this case do following:

  1. Change source to stretch (step 3)
  2. install dump978-fa and skyaware978 (step 5)
  3. Change source back to buster (step 6)
  4. Configure (step 7)

Compiling dump978-fa for buster is a better approach.
