Send Command to Device


#1

Pretty cool new option on your ADS-B page but it does not appear to work. I’ll send the command but nothing happens. When it does it will be very handy.


#2

Check your piaware.out file to see if there are any messages when you click on ‘send command’. My system is set to not allow autoupdates. I tried the ‘restart piaware’ which resulted in the following in piaware.out:
12/17/2014 19:30:11 auto update (flightaware-initiated) requested by adept server
12/17/2014 19:30:11 autoUpdate is not configured in /etc/piaware or by piaware-config
YMMV

Thanks Joel. How do you get to the piaware.out file.


#4

I think it defaults to the directorty /tmp I use SSH to work on the Pi, cd /tmp and either cat piaware.out or just tail piaware.out.


#5

Thanks Joel but I have no idea what any of that means.


#6

I just sent you a PM (Private Message) look for the “N new messages” link at the top of the discussion page.


#7

:bulb: We really need a FAQ. :bulb:


#8

Volunteering?


#9

After turning autoupdate and manual update on and sudo piaware-config -restart,
I sent the command 'Upgrade all Installed Debian Packages". The console messages appeared in /tmp/piaware.out. Nice work, now to figure out why a few minor failures (expect config blunders on my part).


#10

the reason it would not obey remote commands was that I still had 1.15. The reason I still had 1.15 is that you cannot upgrade a flashed SD card. I re-imaged the SD Card to 1.18 and the remote commands now work. You can all go back to work.
