Problem with Cntrol Panel


#1

Hi

I’ve got a problem with my control panel items on my new site. It seems to be missing some fields. Any idea on how to get them back?

Old site has

Auto-update PiAware software
Mode S Multilateration (MLAT)
Send command to device
Remove Feeder Site

in the control panel but my new site control panel doesn’t have these settings. How can I get them activated please>

Your new site can’t see any installed piaware debian packages so it is assuming it is a manual install and makes very few assumptions about what can be done with it.

How did you install piaware?


#3

I manually installed v3 onto my RPi3.

That’s the same way I installed my other receiver and that didn’t seem to mind on version 2.


#4

Can you explain what you mean by “manually installed”? Did you install a prebuilt package? Did you build a package from source and install that? Did you build from source and install directly without packaging?


#5

I installed it from the .deb file. I didn’t use ANY prebuilt images.


#6

But you did use the prebuilt .deb?
That should be fine. Not sure what’s gone wrong.

Can you try a “sudo dpkg --configure -a” and see if that does anything?

Can you try a “sudo dpkg --configure -a” and see if that does anything?

  • Nothing showed on screen

I used this one

piaware-repository_3.1.0_all.deb


#8

I"m having the same issue.

I installed using this guide:

flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/install

I used same install method on two RPi’s at the same time, so i’m not quite sure what went wrong.

I’m new to all this, can you help?


#9

Can you both try running this (the exact command is important, make sure you get the quotes correct in particular):



dpkg-query --showformat '${binary:Package} ${Version} ${Status}
' --show '*piaware*'


and report the results?

This is the command that piaware runs to identify installed piaware packages; it is not working as expected on your systems.


#10

Just for kicks, I did it and got:

piaware 3.1.0 install ok installed


#11

piaware 3.1.0 install ok installed
piaware-repository 3.1.0 install ok installed


#12

Aha, ok, I see the bug. I’ll fix that for the next piaware release. Thanks!

In the meantime you should be able to work around it by:



piaware-config image-type piaware_package
sudo systemctl restart piaware



#13

Yep that worked, thanks

Needed a sudo before the first command though
