Raspberry Pi Debian images - Latest Release Bullseye

Yay I am your crash test dummy L O L

One thing I notice in difference to your previous install scripts, the ““piaware web”” section as an option, is missing.

No it is not missing. Scroll down (slowly) this post and you will find it:

So it is. Now I got the right time and location, thanks. Is there somewhere I can look at the other 2 things I normal set up with a new SD card, expanding the file system and a very handy one, a fan control (great with the rpi4 and you not getting up to 80 deg…)

Version 6.0 up and running :slight_smile:

You are referring to dump1090-fa version or Piaware version?

What are the outputs of following 2 commands?

apt-cache policy dump1090-fa

apt-cache policy piaware
  1. What is the size (Gb) of microSD card?
  2. What are outputs of following 3 commands?
lsblk

sudo fdisk -l /dev/mmcblk0 

df -h

 

For your guidance, my outputs are as follows:
Size of my microSD card = 8 Gb

64gb, yes I know, don’t need that much … Other answers will come, just got to wait for a spare RPI4 to run that card again

Well at least it should last a long time what with wear levelling - assuming it has it.

Anecdotally, it seems to me that 32GB cards last longer than 16GB ones but that might be down to any number of factors of course.

It would appear the FA version:
pi@rpi4-20210823:~$ apt-cache policy dump1090-fa

pi@rpi4-20210823:~$

 

In plain words, the above output says:

  1. The microSD card’s drive letter is mmcblk1
  2. It’s size is 59.5G
  3. It has two partitions as follows:
    Partition 1 is mmcblk1p1 size 296M (boot)
    Partition 2 is mmcblk1p2 size 59.2G (root)

So your Partitions 1 + 2 are occupying the whole microSD card, i.e. it is already fully expanded. :+1:

So your dump1090-fa is ver 6.0~dev, but piaware is ver 5.0

Hi all
Installed debian 11 but dump not having it
pi4 4gb

pi@rpi4-20210823:~$ apt-cache policy dump1090-fa

Did you use automated scripts, or tried to install dump1090-fa some other way?

sudo lsb_release -si
Debian

Installing dump1090-fa
grep: debian/dump1090-fa/DEBIAN/control: No such file or directory
dpkg: error: cannot access archive 'dump1090-fa__*.deb': No such file or directory

DUMP1090-FA INSTALLATION COMPLETED
REBOOT Computer

installed this  img 
20210823_raspi_4_bullseye.img
tried installing other dump

This shows that it tried to build and install dump1090-fa ver 5.0 on Bullseye. Since building ver 5.0 on Bullseye fails, it did not find .deb package to install.

To make it install ver 6.0~dev, issue following additional commands:

cd dump1090

git fetch --all 

git reset --hard origin/dev 

sudo sed -i 's/dh-systemd,//' debian/control 

sudo dpkg-buildpackage -b --no-sign 

 

The last command above will take some time to complete. When it finishes, issue following commands:

sudo dpkg -i dump1090-fa_6.0~dev_armhf.deb 

sudo reboot  

 

After reboot, check status of dump1090-fa, and skyaware map.

 

pi@rpi4-20210823:~$ cd dump1090-fa
-bash: cd: dump1090-fa: No such file or directory

Sorry, my mistake. Above command should be

cd dump1090
(dump1090 NOT dump1090-fa)

I have corrected it.
Repeat all commands below:

cd dump1090

git fetch --all 

git reset --hard origin/dev 

sudo sed -i 's/dh-systemd,//' debian/control 

sudo dpkg-buildpackage -b --no-sign 

The last command above will take some time to complete. When it finishes, issue following commands:

sudo dpkg -i dump1090-fa_6.0~dev_armhf.deb 

sudo reboot  

After reboot, check status of dump1090-fa, and skyaware map.
