Raspberry Pi Flightaware Command Line Timeout
« on: February 19, 2020, 09:58:02 AM »
After unsuccessfully installing the RB feeder and with advice from Airnav Support I've installed the Piaware option from the very helpful Bake A Pi thread. This is up and running, however the Pi boots straight into Flightaware and using the Alt F2 option gives me about 5 seconds to enter the password before the screen goes blank.

Being a Pi newbie I've looked at a few forums but I wondered if anyone had advice on how I can continue with RB install?

Thanks

Nigel

It seems you are using a monitor connected to HDMI port of RPi.

You have to SSH to RPi from your Desktop or Laptop computer.
After connection is established, on SSH terminal issue following command. It will run for a while and install rbfeeder.

Code: [Select]
sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - http://apt.rb24.com/inst_rbfeeder.sh)"


If you dont know how to SSH to RPi, please see this post:
