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.)

I will request name change for this one later on, but this one is for stable releases only

I've created a new package for the changed upstream. The actual dependencies and soforth are changed, so it's almost substantively different; perhaps this package should be retained alongside the git version?

I propose that the -DDABSTICK=ON flag should be uncommented by default in the PKGBUILD because I guess that most users have an RTL2832U stick.

@tgheretford, SammysHP thx TODO: • Test on armv7h (OrangePi here) • DAB-cmdline • ada gtk version • fm receiver • probably more executables need to be compiled and installed

I've successfully managed to build qt-dab from the new github source without much difference from the commands within the PKGBUILD for those who wish to build from source whilst waiting for the AUR package to be updated (with a name change most likely). The options to turn on various RTL-SDR, Airspy and Spectrum analyser options have to be set within the cmake command: cmake -DDABSTICK=ON -DRTLTCP=ON -DSPECTRUM=ON -DAIRSPY=ON -DAIRSPYLIB_INCLUDE_DIR='/usr/include/libairspy/' ../ One problem I have noted, DAB+ won't work with the FAAD package from extra. It will error with "Warning: No standard extension payload allowed in DRM", something I didn't see happen with version 0.997-0. Another DAB/DAB+ package I also managed to build is a fork of qt-dab - which also needs qt-charts to be installed alongside the usual qt-dab dependencies.

Program was renamed to qt-dab, old repository is gone:

Apparently there is an upstream versioning problem with qt5-quick1 5.7.0. A dirty hack for the time being is correcting the version manually to 5.7.0 in /usr/lib64/cmake/Qt5Declarative/Qt5DeclarativeConfig.cmake:100. Then sdr-j-dabreceiver builds and DAB+ reception works.

Build fails (0.997-0): CMake Error at /usr/lib64/cmake/Qt5Declarative/Qt5DeclarativeConfig.cmake:99 (find_package): Could not find a configuration file for package "Qt5Script" that is compatible with requested version "5.7.1". The following configuration files were considered but not accepted: /usr/lib64/cmake/Qt5Script/Qt5ScriptConfig.cmake, version: 5.7.0

Versioning is still heavily broken, it's still impossible to package airspy dependency can be modified in PKGBUILD

hi i get: curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found ==> ERROR: Failure while downloading V0.99.tar.gz Aborting... it looks like there is an archive with name "V0.991.tar.gz" though and a different md5 sum.

Should be fixed now, it should be compiled against qwt that was compiled against qt5, not qt4 like in repo I managed to receive my station after going outside

silent commented on 2015-11-20 04:06 (UTC)

The new version builds ok, but segfaults immediately at the start: Segmentation fault (core dumped)

commented on 2015-08-27 01:31 (UTC)

Compiles fine, but I can't seem to get it to run, crashes on startup with sdr-j-dabreceiver: pcm_params.c:2249: snd1_pcm_hw_params_slave: Assertion `err >= 0' failed.

swiftgeek commented on 2015-06-10 13:50 (UTC)

Added mini receiver
