How to install rbfeeder in rpm based distro
« on: October 30, 2023, 03:35:13 PM »
Hello,

I have an RPM based Linux distribution on my server (Alma Linux). Can I install rbfeeder on it? The install script is only for Debian based distros.

I currently have a small device with dump1090 on it and fr24 on my server to feed the tracks to flightradar24. I would like to also feed the tracks to RadarBox.

Regards
Palando

Install program "alien" to convert .deb to .rpm and vice-versa
Code: [Select]
alien --to-rpm /path/to/file.deb

And vice-versa:
Code: [Select]
alien --to-deb /path/to/file.rpm

Thank you!

Do you know (or anybody else) how to download the deb file? I only find the install bash script which adds an apt repository to the distro. I can not find a URL to the deb file. (I need the x86_64 version.)

Radarbox24 do NOT have any package for installation on x86_64 machines. They have only armhf and arm64 deb packages. On Debian based OS these packages can be downloaded (after adding rb24 repository to apt sources list) by adding --download-only  to install command like below:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt install --download-only rbfeeder

This will download rbfeeder deb package and any dependencies it needs, and place them in folder  /var/cache/apt/archives from where you can get it.

However radarbox feeder can be installed on Linux x86_64 computers through Docker. I have successfully installed it on Debian-11 x86_64 OS, but I am not sure if it can be installed on rpm based OS. You may try and see.

The decoder offered by this Docker site is readsb-protobuff. If you already have a decoder installed, you may no need to install readsb-protobuf.

Thank you very much! I think the docker container is exactly what I need as I have a dump1090 in my network on an OpenWRT router. I will give it a try in the next days. :-)
