Mode-S Beast on Raspbian/Raspberry Pi with USB

#1
I would like to connect mode-s beast on a Raspbian/Raspberry Pi with USB so that I don't have to keep my PC turned on. I am planning to use Raspbian (not lite) on the Raspberry Pi. Also I think beast-splitter need to be configured to setup mode-s beast. (https://github.com/flightaware/beast-splitter). Has anyone tried interfacing mode-s beast on a Raspbian/Raspberry Pi with USB? Can you suggest simple step by stem instruction to st it up from scratch.

Hello George,

i use mode-s beast with a raspi. You have to setup beast-splitter as instructed at https://github.com/flightaware/beast-splitter . At /etc/default/beast-splitter You have to enable autostart. Here is my file:

Code:
# Configuration for beast-splitter.
# This is a shell-script fragment.
# Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.

# Set to "yes" to allow starting beast-splitter with this configuration.
ENABLED="yes"

# Input options for beast-splitter.
# This tells beast-splitter where to read data from.
# You should provide one of --net or --serial here
INPUT_OPTIONS="--serial /dev/beast"
#INPUT_OPTIONS="--net remotehost:remoteport"

# Output options for beast-splitter.
# This tells beast-splitter where to send output to,
# either by establishing an outgoing connection (--connect)
# or by accepting inbound connections (--listen)
#--connect localhost:30104:R
OUTPUT_OPTIONS="--listen 30005:B"
and my Planefinder config:
