Hello Folks, im trying hard to get my Rpi4 back on line after a considerable break. Following all the steps on the AirNav pages BUT I get stuck in so many places with the following error:

[2021-08-01 18:26:15]  Configuration file (/etc/rbfeeder.ini) doesn't exist.
[email protected]:~$

Your help, support and guidance would be very much appreciated, I've been at this all day and its getting frustrating now - Ive tried everything remove, purge, download and try all over again but I just cant get past the lack of a Config file. I really dont rememner having any problems when I made my first set up a few years ago.

Hope you can spare a bit of time, Thanks all, Pete

(1) Purge existing copy of rbfeeder, then reinstall a fresh copy

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get purge rbfeeder

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


(2) Now open file /etc/rbfeeder.ini to edit

Code: [Select]
sudo nano /etc/rbfeeder.ini 

(3) In above file under [client] add this line
key=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Note: replace xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx by your actual key

(4) Save file (press Ctrl and O keys togather)
(5) Close file (press Ctrl and X keys togather)
(6) Restart rbfeeder by following command

Below is my file /etc/rbfeeder.ini for your quick reference. I added the lines starting with lat, lon, alt for enabling MLAT

Code: [Select]

[client]
network_mode=true
log_file=/var/log/rbfeeder.log

lat=43.xxx
lon=-79.xxx
alt=155

[network]
mode=beast
external_port=30005
external_host=127.0.0.1

[mlat]
autostart_mlat=true
#mlat_cmd=/usr/bin/python3.5 /usr/bin/mlat-client
