Reboots is how I kept MLAT running for the past year when it randomly stopped, but no amount of reboots or "sudo systemctl restart rbfeeder" would fix it when MLAT quit about a month ago. I had an error message when running "sudo systemctl status rbfeeder" to the effect:
"File "/usr/bin/mlat-client", line 108, in <module>
adsbexchange rbfeeder[642]:     open(pidfile, 'w').write(pid)
adsbexchange rbfeeder[642]: PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/run/mlat-client.pid'

This error cleared when I applied the patches in my post above and MLAT then started working. One can now restart the process with "sudo systemctl restart rbfeeder" and "sudo systemctl restart mlat-client", MLAT now happily restarts without a reboot.

@Greytech
That patch was for BUSTER, and worked for you because you have Buster. For those who have BULLSEYE, following is the patch:

To install mlat-client package on RPi with 32-bit Raspi OS BULLSEYE

Code: [Select]
wget https://github.com/abcd567a/mlat-client-package/releases/download/v1/mlat-client_0.2.11_BULLSEYE_armhf.deb 

sudo dpkg -i mlat-client_0.2.11_BULLSEYE_armhf.deb 

sudo apt-mark hold mlat-client

Thanks for that - I will file this for the future in case I do upgrade...
