Can you please guide me on installing SDRPlay drivers on Mac OSX Yosemite? I downloaded the archive containing the shared library and the include file, however there is no documentation on what should I do with those files. I tried copying them to /opt/local/lib and /opt/local/include folders (from Mac Ports), but gr-osmosdr sink is unable to find "a suitable device". The arguments for osmosdr is "sdrplay", as stated here: http://sdr.osmocom.org/trac/wiki/GrOsmoSDR .
The API has been provided on the Mac as we have customers using it, so we can say that it works.
It's a *nix base system so you should be able to follow the Linux installation guide, but gr-osmosdr has not been tested on the Mac platform.
For gr-osmosdr to find the API, the .so and .h will need to be in /usr/local/lib and /usr/local/include and be called
with symbolic links to /usr/local/lib/libmirsdrapi-rsp.so and /usr/local/lib/libmir_sdr.so
We are in the process of adding more platform support and will revisit the Mac platform to improve the installer and check out the gr-osmosdr flow.
Looking forward for news regarding SDRPlay on Mac!
If you would like us to check a specific version, post the link and we'll confirm whether the support is there.
They are writing their own software using the API. If they are developing for general use we will ask them to publish information on here when they have something to share.
I am using Mac OSX 10.10.3, with Mac Ports up to date and the following ports:
And, of course, as in the post above, the sdrplay library downloaded from sdrplay website.
The intention is to use GQRX, but until I am sure that I can start it up in gnuradio, it does not make any sense to try configuring GQRX.
I've just checked mac ports and the release of gr-osmosdr used does not contain SDRplay support. It looks like it needs to be updated from the official gr-osmosdr distribution which DOES have SDRplay support.
