Problem installing data feeder Raspberry Pi

#1
Hi ,
I followed this guide
http://forum.planefinder.net/thread...ctions-for-raspbian-dump1090-data-feeder.241/

I have a problem at post number 3 installing the pf client on my Raspberry Pi

sudo npm install -g pfclient-latest.tgz

A lot happens with text scrolling through the terminal window, nearly done i think, but then install stops with this output

> ws@0.4.31 install /usr/local/lib/node_modules/pfclient/node_modules/socket.io-client/node_modules/engine.io-client/node_modules/ws

> (node-gyp rebuild 2> builderror.log) || (exit 0)

I tried going back to stage 1 of post 3 installing the node and paths and trying again but install stops at same point.

Anyone have any ideas please ?

Thanks in advance.

At the output you have mentioned in your message, the install seems to be stopped, but it does not stop. It takes 5 to 10 minutes wait to automatically get out of this stage and proceed further. Please be patient. I have faced the same problem and once aborted the install. Second time I decided to wait and see what happens. after about 5 to 10 minutes wait, the install automatically proceeded further.

Try again & be patient. Good Luck.

Okay ab cd ,
I will give it another go.
By the way, i note that the plane finder feed is 30003, the same as fr24.
Will this cause problems ?
Is it possible to have both feeds without using modesmixer2 as this messes up planeplotter mlat function.

1. It is ok to have fr24 & pfclient both use 30003 without any problems.
2. I am NOT using modesmixer2. I am using dump1090 (or dump1090-mutability) and feeding three sites (a)FR24 (b)Planefinder (3)Flightaware. No problems at all.
