santa brought me a Raspberry


#1

Installed Rasperian ??? I think it is. Got dump1090 installed and PIAware and I think I have it running. Im running GUI till I make sure all is well. I was able to Claim it so lets see if it runs now.


#2

Great! I know you’ll have fun with it. I love mine - just ordered another one with Christmas money. :smiley:


#3

dont have dump1090 installed and running even though I ran the script on the page.

Trying manual install on the dump 1090 page I get the error

Found 1 device(s):
0: Realtek, RTL2838UHIDIR, SN: 00000001

Using device 0: Generic RTL2832U OEM

Kernel driver is active, or device is claimed by second instance of librtlsdr.
In the first case, please either detach or blacklist the kernel module
(dvb_usb_rtl28xxu), or enable automatic detaching at compile time.

usb_claim_interface error -6
Failed to open rtlsdr device #0.
pi@raspberrypi ~ $

Made the file no-rtl.conf exactly like they said and I still receive the error. NUTS.


#4

I assumed you rebooted after adding the file?
Here’s my no-rtl.conf:


pi@ads-b ~ $ cat /etc/modprobe.d/no-rtl.conf
blacklist dvb_usb_rtl28xxu
blacklist rtl2832
blacklist rtl2830

That’s all I had to do to get mine working.

Good luck…


#5

Welcome to the Asylum…

Easy fix. Take a look at:
satsignal.eu/raspberry-pi/du … er-upgrade


#6

Yep created that file exactly as the example said and rebooted and still got it. Checked spelling and all too.


#7

Ill add the top line to mine see if that works.


#8

Just to clarify… The top line is just the command I ran from the prompt to display the contents of the file.
The file itself is only the last 3 lines.

Is there possibly another instance of dump1090 running? ps -ef should show no dump1090 running.


#9

With all the trouble you are going to get yourself into diving into Debian etc with the RPi, maybe Santa was out of coal? :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:
Welcome aboard. Your site flightaware.com/adsb/stats/user/w7psk shows planeplotter running for the last 5 days. If the RPi is a separate feed, it should show up when it’s running.

#10

i run linux mint on my laptop so Im a newbie but not a complete newbie, but it will be fun to dive in. I dumped PP 5 days ago and was hoping for a Raspberry so am very happy to dive into it. Had company till now and its late to dive in. Might have a few in the morning to peek. But have to work … Off saturday so will have that to play with it.

will check and see if another Dump is running .


#11

Just out of curiosity, why didn’t you install the Piaware image? It’s set and ready to get you feeding right out of the box. But you can still tweak to your heart’s content.


#12

Dont have a micro card reader :frowning:. No way to just do the image. I installed the PI Dump package per their instructions but could not find nor start dump1090 to see if it worked before I went PI Aware.

Not sure which direction to go yet :slight_smile:.


#13

Cant tell but id does not look like Dump1090 is running

#14

It looks like it **is **running. I see the entry for /usr/bin/dump1090. The installer did all the hard work for you.
Have you tried a browser connection to the Pi’s IP address at port 8080?

You can view the status of the various programs that you need with the command “sudo piaware-status”. That could provide more insight as to what’s going on.


#15

Could you be missing one or more libraries? I found that was a problem when building from a base Wheezy config.
Is the OS up to date? To make sure things are current you can run:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

What do you get when opening htttp://:8080 ?


#16

Also try this:

cd into the directory that has dump1090

enter the command


./view1090

What you should see is a text table with a spinning text ‘star’ if dump1090 is running.


#17

When i did ./view1090 I recieved the standard interactive screen with flights, so 1090 is running. Now I need to get it to talk to piaware. Also doing the http comes up with nothing so Im not getting net going. I need to mod the 1090 bat file to activate that. Does anyone have a good bat file to try ???


#18

looks like piaware is not going

pi@raspberrypi ~/dump1090 $ sudo piaware-status
dump1090 is running.
faup1090 is not running.
piaware is not running.
dump1090 is listening for connections on port 30005.
dump1090 is listening for connections on port 10001.
piaware is NOT connected to port 10001.
piaware is NOT connected to FlightAware.
dump1090 is producing data on port 10001.
dump1090 is producing data on port 30005.


#19

Do you have a file in /etc/init.d called piaware?


-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1476 Nov 19 09:54 piaware

if so, “sudo /etc/init.d/piaware restart”.
If not, did you install Piaware? It’s step 2 (and beyond) in https://flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/install

#20

Originally Installed it, Ill try again … see if it works, cant SSH in though. Some reason SSH stopped even after a reboot.
