Radarbox connected for 3 days, then disconnected AGAIN
« on: August 07, 2022, 11:09:44 PM »
Good morning. I had an issue since my last reboot/reinstall of all flight trackers software installed in my Rpi.

I have working and feeding Flightradar24, Flightaware and Planefinder. All of them work perfectly, the only one who refuses to work is RadarBox24

Suddenly a week ago, I´ve received an email stating that My account is back online again.. CHecked and was true.. ONLY FOR 3 days.. today my RadarBox24 is down... and is really annoying because it wasn´t working, and as started to work by herself, stopped by herself...

Anyone knows or "suffered" the same glitch, ghost, whatever you name it ??

Regards from Argentina

Your rbfeeder config settings are OK..
Maybe some other files of rbfeeder got broken/corrupted during install. Try purging current install, then update, then make a fresh install

Code: [Select]
sudo apt purge rbfeeder   

sudo apt update 

sudo apt install rbfeeder

(1) Which model your Pi is?
(2) Which OS image did you write to microSD card?

See system logs and 'systemctl status rbfeeder.service' for details.

Seems the package rbfeeder is broken

Try this


Code: [Select]
sudo apt --fix-broken install   

sudo reboot   


If above fails to fix the issue, try this command

Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --configure -a

Model Raspberry Pi 3b+
OS : "Raspbian GNU/Linux 11 (bullseye)"


None of the procedures above could fix the issue. I have a doubt. When I execute sudo apt install rbfeeder    rbfeeder dont ask for initial parameters. Is there any way to ERASE DELETE VAPORIZE all RBFEEDER and make a clean installation ??

Just a simple question. I´ve realized that station key and Station name weren´t asociated, so I´ve edited the Station Name in the rbfeeder.ini file, to match it with the original station key.

Maybe there is another way to do that.

Waiting for answers...

OK Try this

(1) Give following commands
Code: [Select]
sudo systemctl stop rbfeeder 

sudo dpkg --purge rbfeeder   

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

# NOTE: In command below, replace xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx by your actual key

sudo rbfeeder --setkey xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx



(2) Press Ctrl+C to break-out


(3) Stop then restart rbfeeder
Code: [Select]
sudo systemctl stop rbfeeder 

sudo systemctl restart rbfeeder   



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


If above fails, then locate the rbfeeder package by following command

Code: [Select]

sudo find / -name rbfeeder*.deb     

The above command will output location of rbfeeder package.  In my Pi it shows like this:
                       /var/cache/apt/archives/rbfeeder_1%3a1.0.8+deb11_armhf.deb

Please post output. This package will need to be deleted, then installation script run

Code: [Select]
sudo rm /var/cache/apt/archives/rbfeeder_1%3a1.0.8+deb11_armhf.deb   

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

Just getting tired... 3 PROVIDERS WORKS PERFECT...

Attached info, because system keeps telling spam... don´t know how you guys copy/paste code/text in this forum and not getting that message...

How could you put those codes lines in green background ?

Code: [Select]
[email protected]:~ $ sudo find / -name rbfeeder*.deb

/var/cache/apt/archives/rbfeeder_1%3a1.0.7_armhf.deb
/var/cache/apt/archives/rbfeeder_1%3a1.0.8+deb11_armhf.deb
find: ‘/run/user/1000/gvfs’: Permission denied

Oh, I think I found the culprit.
The first two lines of output show that you have two versions of rbfeeder (1.0.7 & 1.0.8) saved in apt cache. Either one or both versions are corrupt, OR presence of two versions is causing conflict.

Let us get rid of all old stuff first
Code: [Select]
sudo systemctl stop rbfeeder 

sudo apt purge rbfeeder   

sudo rm /var/cache/apt/archives/rbfeeder_1%3a1.0.7_armhf.deb 

sudo rm /var/cache/apt/archives/rbfeeder_1%3a1.0.8+deb11_armhf.deb 

sudo reboot 


After reboot, check that both versions are removed from apt cache by following command. If both are removed, the output of this command wont show them

Code: [Select]
sudo find / -name rbfeeder*.deb     


If apt cache is clear of rbfeeder, run the installation script

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

## NOTE: In command below, replace xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx by your actual key
sudo rbfeeder --setkey xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

## Output will show your key has been accepted
## Press Ctrl & C keys to break out

sudo systemctl restart rbfeeder   



Now check status 
Code: [Select]
sudo systemctl status rbfeeder

Good morning, after executind the command given below.....

Code: [Select]
sudo find / -name rbfeeder*.deb     


this is the output...

ATTACHED FILE because for some unknown reason to me system keeps telling CleanTalk: *** Forbidden. Please enable JavaScript. Contains contacts. *** enable javascript in 3 different browsers, and cannot copy/paste results here...

That message from sudo find / -name rbfeeder*.deb, means that something cannot be deleted?

revvin´up... damn...

Great!
This is exactly the message I wanted to see.
It confirms that both versions of rbfeeder have been removed, as they are no more listed in the output. Never mind the line with "Permossion denied". It is always there.

As the apt cacbe has been cleaned now, go ahead to next step and run the installation script

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


When above command finishes installation, add your key by following command
(In command below, replace xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx by your actual key)
Code: [Select]
sudo rbfeeder --setkey xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


Output of above command will show your key has been accepted

Press Ctrl & C keys to break out

Now restart rbfeeder
Code: [Select]
sudo systemctl restart rbfeeder   


Now check status 

Code: [Select]
sudo systemctl status rbfeeder

Will give up with this RADAR****BOX setup... unbelievable....

attached results from status command...

there are a couple of "failed to rename..."

What is annoying is that the other 3 feeders work like a charm...

Regards,
