PiAware IMG download link broken


Anyone else having trouble downloading the PiAware image file? I get a 404 when I click the link on this page: flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/build


Sorry, my fault. It should be fixed in a few minutes.

[UPDATE - fixed!]


Thank you sir! Much appreciated!


Ok, so I’m not sure if I should continue this here or now, but I’m a little confused about the piaware packaged raspbian image. I was under the impression that I would basically boot the image and everything would work. From what I can tell after I SSH’d in, it looks like really the only thing that’s installed is dump1090, and with the “build your own” USB device attached, it doesn’t look like dump1090 is starting correctly. It shows that it “Found 1 device(s): 0: Generic, RTL2832U, SN: 77771111153705700 (currently selected)” but then there’s a whole slew of failures after that.

It doesn’t appear that the piaware server is installed however and I can’t hit ](http://):8080 (I’m guessing since dump1090 doesn’t look like it’s working correctly.

Are there some additional steps required to get piaware up and running that aren’t listed on this page?: flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/build

I mean, I could go through and manually install the piaware packages and work through fixing dump1090 but shouldn’t this just work out of the box?

Let me know if there’s any additional detail I can provide to help nail this down. I’m really excited to get this up and running.

This is all installed on a RaspberryPi B (note, not the B+) model, but I wouldn’t imagine that would make any difference.

Ok, so I downgraded to the Piaware image1.3 as I see it was updated on the site. I thought that still didn’t fix the issue, but I came to find out I was having power issue. The instructions for building your own don’t say anything about USB power output. As soon as I plugged the dongle into a USB hub, everything worked instantly. It’s amazing what a little more power can do!
