Anyone want to give these changes a whirl and see if they work for anyone other than me? :)

Notable changes:

  • Remove the PROVIDES to dump1090 since piaware can't work with readsb at this time
  • Copy over readsbrrd and create a systemd file (requires some extra work with collectd. See the upstream repo for ideas/configs
  • Install the contents of webapp/src to /usr/share/readsb/html. Again, see the upstream repo for ideas/configs on working with lighttpd
  • JSON output has been replaced with protobuf. Fix the service options to account for that and also install readsb.proto to /usr/share/readsb for use with any protobuf libraries

Done, have your way with it. :)

Sounds good to me. I'm getting back into this space after an absence

Hey @tuftedocelot, I don't really keep up w/ this realm... how would you feel about being a co-maintainer?

Here's a small patch to the PKGBUILD. Changes are:

  • switch back to using dump1090-fa-git as a run depends
  • That package includes the needed faup1090 helper script which piaware depends on. Since readsb-git was providing dump1090-fa-git, piaware could never run
  • install readsbrrd
  • For now, it'll sit there being available, but a service file could be used to write out the rrd files
  • install the contents of webapp/src to /usr/share/readsb/html
  • fixes the broken service startup since JSON file output has been replaced with protocol-buffers files instead

@Cader: I've updated this package to use readsb-protobuf and since it has real releases, I made readsb. Let me know what you think. :)

Cader commented on 2020-08-16 19:01 (UTC)

This software is no longer under development and has moved to a new upstream

fryfrog commented on 2020-04-26 15:31 (UTC)

I've blindly made the suggested changes, give it a try and let me know if it doesn't do what you want. :)

tuftedocelot commented on 2020-04-26 13:56 (UTC)

Hey fryfrog, great work on these packages. Small note, I've found that setting a PROVIDES for dump1090-fa-git enables piaware to work with no additional configuration. The only other step is to create a symlink for /usr/bin/readsb to /usr/bin/dump1090
