SDRPlay (RSP1) Driver

Postby mhalc » Fri Sep 01, 2017 11:03 pm

I would like to switch from windows to Ubuntu (to use GNURadio). I have the software (CubicSDR, etal) built and running the Ubuntu operating system sees a USB device when the SDR1 is plugged in (see below), but device strings are not set, and CubicSDR/GNURadio do not find the device. I have tried the obvious items (Update, reinstall vmplayer, reboot, etc). So now just "STUCK".

You will need to blacklist the kernel drivers (msi001, msi2500, sdr_msi3101) and install the API and SoapySDRPlay library. There is a non-Windows workflow document on our downloads (http://www.sdrplay.com/downloads) page.

Best regards,

SDRplay Support

That was it, thanks! I did skip section 7 "Further topics to be covered in future updates include…" :D
