Thanks for the feedback @eclairevoyant. I have fixed the package now.

gcc, make, and pkgconfig should be removed from the makedepends as they are part of base-devel as per

The package base-devel is assumed to be already installed when building with makepkg. Dependencies of this package should not be included in makedepends array.

@dc0sk Sorry for the late response. I have now added aarch64 to the arch list.

Would you be so kind and add 'aarch64' to the PKGBUILD? I tested it on a pi4 and it works like a charm.

To solve the issues with the pre-systemd gid-based device access, you should modify the /etc/udev/rules.d/52-airspyhf.rules from
ATTR{idVendor}=="03eb", ATTR{idProduct}=="800c", SYMLINK+="airspyhf-%k", MODE="660", GROUP="plugdev"

ATTR{idVendor}=="03eb", ATTR{idProduct}=="800c", SYMLINK+="airspyhf-%k", MODE="660", TAG+="uaccess"

This is the way to go with systemd. For reference, please see:

@aulavik Good to hear that you found the solution.

Found the solution to my own problem.

The udev file /etc/udev/rules.d/52-airspyhf.rules has an entry GROUP="plugdev".

I created the group plugdev, and added my username into.

Now it works without sudo, and gqrx can now detect the device.

Do the programs need to use sudo in order to detect the device? Or there are permissions I need to set?

Without sudo, airspyhf_info returns:

AirSpy HF library version: 1.6.8
No devices attached.

With sudo, airspyhf_info returns:

AirSpy HF library version: 1.6.8
