Nothing works...

Postby TotalHavoc » Sun Apr 08, 2018 12:33 pm

Hi all. I've been using GQRX on Fedora 23...27 since ages with RTL282 cheap USB keys correctely working.

I'm not a developper and I don't want to become one.

I bought this new SDRplay RSP1A hoping this would be a better experience but nothing works at all. I was told that this RSP1A would work fine with GQRX but in fact it is simply not seen by my system (up-to-date).

This device is not recognized by any libraries installed, even the one downloaded on the manufacturer site. I downloaded a ton of RPM with all the dev tools known, sources, devel-packages, nothing.

rtl-sdr or gr-osmosdr are at latest version but don't see the device, despite it's identified as USB 1df7:3000

The cc/cpp/gcc compilers/preprocessors are installed but the "workflow" for non windoze OS stops with:

[root@hercules build]# cmake ../
-- The C compiler identification is GNU 7.3.1
-- The CXX compiler identification is unknown
-- Check for working C compiler: /usr/bin/cc
-- Check for working C compiler: /usr/bin/cc -- works
-- Detecting C compiler ABI info
-- Detecting C compiler ABI info - done
-- Detecting C compile features
-- Detecting C compile features - done
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:5 (project):
No CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER could be found.

When trying to issue cmake ../ -DCMAKE_CXX_COMPILER=/usr/bin/cpp (with verified cpp at right location) the result is merely the same:

(Nearly same result with "cpp" or "gcc" or "cc")

[root@hercules build]# cmake ../ -DCMAKE_CXX_COMPILER=/usr/bin/cpp
-- The CXX compiler identification is unknown
-- Check for working CXX compiler: /usr/bin/cpp
-- Check for working CXX compiler: /usr/bin/cpp -- broken
CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake/Modules/CMakeTestCXXCompiler.cmake:45 (message):
The C++ compiler


is not able to compile a simple test program.

It fails with the following output:

I do precise that I won't switch to ubuntu or other exotic distros, my personnal/professional world is RHEL/Fedora/Centos and, of course, no MS.

Should I ask for... a refund ?!?
