Does anyone run satnogs-client inside a docker container ? How is your experience with it ? Didn’t find any documentation for deploying the client inside docker.
The main reason I’m trying it is to play with a HackRF as SDR receiver to experiment with higher frequencies than rtl-sdr allows and with its 8MS/s minimum sample rate my raspberry pi 3 is a little short of cpu. I didn’t want to deploy directly on my computer as i was afraid of breaking other things on it as i don’t know everything that is done when deploying the satnogs-client.
I’m mostly successful with deploying satnogs-client onto a docker container with ansible using the doc from https://wiki.satnogs.org/SatNOGS_Client_Ansible
The deployement goes fine (it always fails at the first run and succeeds on a second run, to be investigated), satnogs-setup runs fine and the client connects to the network. Devices (HackRF, Rtl-Sdr and LimeSDR-mini) are correctly recognized and seem to work fine as long as they are connected to the host before starting the container. Connecting them later currently fails, they are recognized as usb devices but fail to open.
Need to perform some more testing and clean some config up but basically it is working. I’d happily share the configs i use if someone is interested and would be happy to hear of some others experience.
