New Feeder
« on: May 23, 2017, 02:06:36 pm »
I just set up my feed last night. I have a Pi3 that is feeding Flightaware and I added in the code to feed R24. It started out fine but quickly stopped. I still see my feed going to Flightaware, so why would R24 drop off?
Do I need to do something to get it feeding again?

I see that it is showing as offline, maybe an email to support@radarbox24.com can offer some advice

Been there, have a look at the thread unable to install radarbox on Pi3. It could be something similar to my problem but all working now.
Good luck and keep us informed, Dave.

I did look at that thread and followed along on some of the steps. After deleting and re-downloading, I get this when I check it after a reboot:

Suggest you contact support and get someone with knowledge of the Raspberry Pi to assist.  Knowledge on here very limited.

Morning WJ, have you got Dump1090 installed on your Pi3?

Dump1090 is part of the flightaware software. I set my Pi up with PiAware first. Then I started adding other feeds.
Here is my stats page for flightaware- http://flightaware.com/adsb/stats/user/wjruth
So I know the Pi is operational and tracking planes.

This is NOT an ERROR.
Why?
Immediately upon installation of rbfeeder, it starts running, fetching data from dump1090's port 30005, feeding that data to rbfeeder's listening port 32008. The rbfeeder sends this data to RadarBox24.

So far so good. All is working ok.

Now you give command "sudo rbfeeder"
This starts a SECOND INSTANCE of rbfeeder, which also tries to listen at port 32008, which is already in use by the first instance of rbfeeder, hence an Error is shown.

You did not have to remove and reinstall rbfeeder. All you should have done is to:
1) Check status of rbfeeder by command "sudo systemctl status rbfeeder -l"
2) If some error is shown, restart rbfeeder by command "sudo systemctl restart rbfeeder"
3) After restart, check status by command "sudo systemctl status rbfeeder -l"
4) A reboot often fixes many ERROR mesages.
