Thank you for the instructions. What about the MLAT client?

Thank you for the instructions. What about the MLAT client?

First try to install mlat-client by following ccommand:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install mlat-client

Most likely by above command it will get installed and work ok. In case it fails to install or fails to work, build mlat-client from source code.

I tried to install mlat-client on Bullseye, got following:

(1) AFTER installing rbfeeder, gave following command but it failed to install mlat-client
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install mlat-client 

(2) Tried to build mlat-client from source-code, using method in following post, but it also failed
https://forum.radarbox24.com/index.php?topic=101771.msg407051#msg407051

(3) Modified the procedure to suite Bullseye by adding command "sudo apt-get install -y dh-python"  just before the command "sudo dpkg-buildpackage -b -uc". This succeeded .

The finished procedure for building mlat-client from source-code on BULLSEYE is as follows: 

PROCEDURE FOR BUILDING & INSTALLING MLAT-CLIENT ON BULLSEYE
Code: [Select]
## Installed required packages (dependencies and build tools)
sudo apt update -y
sudo apt-get install -y git curl build-essential debhelper python-dev python3-dev

## Downloaded source code
cd /home/pi/ 
git clone https://github.com/mutability/mlat-client.git 

## Built mlat-client's installation package
cd /home/pi/mlat-client 
sudo apt-get install -y dh-python 
sudo dpkg-buildpackage -b -uc 

## Above command took some time to build package. After the package was built, installed it by following command
cd /home/pi/ 
sudo dpkg -i mlat-client_*.deb

Maybe it's better to wait some more time for the companies to build their packages for Bullseye...

Yes, you are right. At this stage there is no advantage of switching from Buster to Bullseye as Buster is still fully supported.

However just for the sake of experimenting, couple of days ago I installed Raspberry Pi OS Bullseye, and on it successfully installed all feeders.

(1) dump1090-fa and piaware: The Buster packages from Flightaware fail to install on Bullseye. I built these on Bullseye using automated install scripts I have posted on Github.

https://github.com/abcd567a/piaware-ubuntu20-amd64/blob/master/README.md


(2a) Radarbox24 feeder: The Bullseye package is not yet available. Installed available Buster package by method I have posted above. In this method, I have modified the installation script to trick it to think the OS is Buster, and it installs the available Buster package

(2b) mlat-client: The available Buster package fails to install on Bullseye. I built it on Bullseye from source code using method posted above.

(3) Flightradar24 feeder: Installed Buster package on Bullseye  by following command
Code: [Select]
sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - https://repo-feed.flightradar24.com/install_fr24_rpi.sh)"


(4) Planefinder feeder: Installed Buster package on Bullseye by following commands
Code: [Select]
wget http://client.planefinder.net/pfclient_5.0.161_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i pfclient_5.0.161_armhf.deb


(5) Adsbexchange: Installed on Bullseye by following commands
Code: [Select]
wget -O /tmp/axfeed.sh https://adsbexchange.com/feed.sh
sudo bash /tmp/axfeed.sh


(6) Graphs: Installed on Bullseye by following command
Code: [Select]
sudo bash -c "$(wget -q -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wiedehopf/graphs1090/master/install.sh)"
