@tgheretford: Oh. In fact it is renamed back in the patch I apply to fix the build. But that change also fixes the absolute path for, so overall that's a good change. I'll push a new package with rtlsdr enabled in a few minutes.

Another update, another revision of the RTL SDR option for cmake. It's reverted back to -DRTLSDR_LINUX=ON.

That fixed the issue. Thank you Bevan.

Hm, that looks to be hardcoded:

Could you please try 6.2.5-3 and report back?

tgheretford commented on 2023-11-08 19:24 (UTC)

Thank you Bevan. It is compiling with RTL SDR support now. There is another bug I found after you commented that I edited in to my last comment where it expects the file in /usr/local/lib64 instead of /usr/lib for some reason.

@tgheretford: Thanks a lot! It should be fixed now in 6.2.5-2. Please report back if it still does not work.

The option for RTL-SDR devices has been renamed in version 6.25. It's now -DRTLSDR_GENERIC=ON . It also expects in /usr/local/lib64/ (which doesn't exist for me) rather than /usr/lib/ which is where it is installed.

Thanks tgheretford for pointing this out. I can only test the HackRF backend myself, so I'm glad for any feedback on other devices. I added the flag now in 4.6-2.

The build part of the PKGBUILD needs -DRTLSDR_LINUX=ON \ adding as an option for cmake prior to compiling, otherwise the RTL-SDR dongle (called dabstick) will not appear in the input device options.

The sdr-j-dabreceiver application has been renamed to qt-dab. Everyone should use qt-dab and not the old package.

(Comments dated 2017 and older are from the legacy AUR/sdr-j-dabreceiver package page.)
