SatNOGS station monitor

What’s the error message?

Installing the debian armhf package will only work on the armhf architecture (so probably not on your laptop or desktop) but you’re trying on the RPi zero, so this should work.

Thats what I thought. I’ve not seen this before and I installed gdebi as well. this is the gdebi error…

and this is the dpkg -i error

I’m begining to think that it is to do with the distro and something not being right with that rather than the package as it worked with a desktop distro.

I’ve got it working on another RPi 3 so it’s no big deal but I would like to understand the problem for a long term project so I can use the zero rather than a RPi3

Have you tried redownloading the package? The file might be corrupted.

Check the hash and file type:

$ sha256sum satnogs-monitor_0.2.0_armhf.deb
8282ee3cff0e4ff765f9450b623712b9a9ed4d86e494ec304f9168f81f8dad2f  satnogs-monitor_0.2.0_armhf.deb

$ file satnogs-monitor_0.2.0_armhf.deb
satnogs-monitor_0.2.0_armhf.deb: Debian binary package (format 2.0)

there we go…

Better with the file transferred another way. Now its showing a segmentation fault so I’m going to re-install the distro :roll_eyes:

I wouldn’t consider a reinstall so quickly… what part does segfault? The dpkg -i step? Did you add non raspbian sources to your /etc/apt/sources.list?

If satnogs-monitor itself segfaults I would be very interested in the output of:

ldd /usr/bin/satnogs-monitor

and

strace satnogs-monitor

But more to the point the cool retro term is looking good (on my laptop)

Hi not up to speed on all the tech stuff, any chance of a line by line tutorial of how to install this? I manage the basic satnogs install and update by following the steps on the main page
Does it go on the pi ? can it be installed on a windows machine? i can see the files in Git
Hub but not sure where to go next
cheers

Hi Max,

The instructions are in git, but you’re correct, we probably need a wiki page to make it really clear. My suggestion would be to follow this link. Download the correct version, make it executable and install either from command line.

Are you ok with that or do you need a bit more?

I have kick started the wiki thread. Feel free to extend it if you’ve encounter problems and solved them or have configuration snippets for different terminal emulators/fonts/…

Hi thanks for the quick responce
Download correct version to pi ? Or Windows laptop?
How do I know the right one ?
Make executable?
Do I ssh into pi or is this a card reader thing ?
Sorry these may be very simple questions the initial instal for satnogs I did line by line with odd syntax / typing problems

Max

Please note that the satnogs-monitor is not part of the satnogs client installation and is a tool which uses the SatNOGS network API to display information of the ground stations within your terminal. Check the new wiki page from the previous post. If you want to use it you should familiarize yourself with installing and compiling software on a Debian based Linux system (the Raspberry Pi your ground station runs on). It won’t run on Windows (yet).

Thanks for the info have a pi 4 and zero on order. Am converting an old laptop to debian but have an old note 10 tablet I was looking to use for the terminal
Will have a play see how far I can get
Thanks for the info

Max

I just installed on an Ubuntu 18.04 machine, and it works perfectly.

To be clear:
SatNogs-Monitor WILL run on any Linux machine with internet access - it DOES NOT have to be installed on your actual station computers. The only benefit to installing on the actual station computer is additional information will be displayed (I haven’t attempted this yet so not sure what the differences are).

[edit] I added this info to the description in the wiki. Also added “tab key” functionality in “running it”.

Hi
am using putty over ssh to a raspi running satnogs station following https://wiki.satnogs.org/SatNOGS_Monitor

all goes well until step ) - make Install then i get
– Install configuration: “Release”
– Installing: /usr/local/lib/libgpredict.so
CMake Error at cmake_install.cmake:42 (file):
file INSTALL cannot copy file
“/home/pi/libgpredict/test/build/libgpredict/build/libgpredict.so” to
“/usr/local/lib/libgpredict.so”.

Makefile:61: recipe for target ‘install’ failed
make: *** [install] Error 1

Not sure what this means … can’t be good though ?

any help greatly received
Max

Did you do the “dependencies” section (libgpredict install)? I apologize if you did, just thats the first thing I would try if I got the same error.

Hi K3RLD
Im working down the page https://wiki.satnogs.org/SatNOGS_Monitor
i did the sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-dev cmake build-essential git
that works , and worked down the page till it errors at the build and install section

Max

Did you do sudo make install?

Awesome mate … just that sudo word … isn’t in the script … …
git clone https://github.com/cubehub/libgpredict.git
cd libgpredict
mkdir build
cd build
cmake …/
make
make install
sudo ldconfig # for linux

If someone can add it into the post ??

up and running … thanks for the help to you and all the people who were happy to help me

You can add it on your own - it’s a wiki :wink:
