pfclient clogs dpkg and installation of other SW


New Member
Hi all, I'm 1month old in the wolrd of ADS-B :) I'm experiencing some issues in installaing the pfclient on an original Piaware SD image 3.8.1.
I've managed to install other feeders, as well as other tools (e.g. graphs1090, tar1090), but with pfclient I'm completely stuck.

When I run:
sudo dpkg -i pfclient_4.1.1_armhf.deb
It unpackages the content and then it gets stuck in setting up pfclient.
I loose SSH; if I go to my-IP:30053/setup.html I can set it up. After I reconnect pfclient is running but the dpkg is completely clogged.

If I try to run another installation I get an error that something has still to be configured.
Then if I use the dpkg --configure I am again stuck with setting up pfclient and I loose SSH again.
Checking the status of dpkg I get the following status.
[email protected]:~ $ sudo dpkg --audit
The following packages are only half configured, probably due to problems
configuring them the first time.  The configuration should be retried using
dpkg --configure <package> or the configure menu option in dselect:
 pfclient             Plane Finder Sharing client

My only way to install other packages is to purge pfclient.

Any ideas? :(
