Now follow NOTE (2) of my "How-to" post, (i.e. edit file /etc/rbfeeder.ini and add your latitude, longitude and altitude, then save file, then restart rbfeeder (or reboor Pi).


I have edited the relevant sections in sudo nano /etc/rbfeeder.ini but it just says MLAT active (No stations synced) I have rebooted the pi

@teesvalley spotter
You have two wrong entries in your file rbfeeder.ini
Please see green arrows in screenshot of my file rbfeeder.ini attached below.


To correct these errors, plase do this:
(1) Open file rbfeeder.ini for editing
Code: [Select]
sudo nano /etc/rbfeeder.ini   

(2) In file opened, under [client]
change
network_mode=false
to
network_mode=true

(3) In file opened, under [network]
change
external_host=192.168.xx.xx
to
external_host=127.0.0.1

(4) Save file (Ctrl+O) and Close (Ctrl+x)
(5) Restart rbfeeder
Code: [Select]

sudo systemctl restart rbfeeder   
(6) Check status
Code: [Select]
sudo systemctl status rbfeeder

Amazing job gentleman.. Same problem that guys from above, Support from Radarbox24 useless... You guys here helped a lot... seems like RB script from webpage is for buster, not Bullseye.

Now  I´m online again (WORKED ONLY FOPR 5 MINUTES)

After 5 minutes, stopped working... Any clue about this ? I have working FR24, Planefinder, Flightaware perfectly.

Above, you have logs and ini to see my config. How to know if MLAT client is working for RB24? Is working fine with FR24 and Flightaware...

Help Help.--.

I know next to nothing regarding Linux but while waiting on abc123 I did note the following error

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

Should be mode=beast

Alan, thank you for the observation, but that was suggested by Support from RB24. Annoying...

Lets wait for the Wizard of ADS-B

You are using wrong command (sudo rbfeeder --status) to check status. This started 2nd copy of rbfeeder, while 1st copy started by system was already running and using the ports. This resulted in Error message and failure.

Use following command to check status
NOTE:
(1) First in file /etc/rbfeeder.ini, change the error mode=raw to mode=beast
(2) Next save file
(3) Next Reboot RPi
(4) Now issue following command:
Code: [Select]
sudo systemctl status rbfeeder   


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

As already pointed out by Alan, mode=raw is wrong. It should be mode=beast.

Hi abcd567, is your Bake a Pi thread the best way to load a Pi, or with the updates is there a better script please?
Thanks, Dave.

Hi Dave
I have not looked at my "Bake A Pi" howto for a long time. It is 2017 howto, and many changes have taken place during these 5 years. Obviously many procedures given in it most likely have become outdated.

Ok, this weekend (or may be next weekend) I will review it and update it. It may take more than one weekend.

Regards,
abcd

Don`t worry how long it takes, if any one can, you can.
Your efforts are always appreciated, Dave.
