Compiling on Linux

Dave, KD9GN, then provided this information in this Yahoo group message.


(assuming you have an SVN client on your Linux workstation)

Open a terminal window and type:

svn co https://subversion.assembla.com/svn/sdrsharp/

This will create a directory called sdrsharp with the latest sources (revision 1121)

From there you will have to follow the instructions you referred to.

I just read the wiki page.  You do not have to compile SDRSharp if you do not want to.  It tells you just to unzip SDRSharp and make some symlinks. Near the bottom of the page it says it will / should compile just fine under MonoDevelop if you choose to go that route.

I have gotten SDRSharp to work on both my debian based and redhat based systems but I did not like the performance.  This was due to old hardware and not the software.  GNU Radio suffered the same issues on these systems as well.  Again, not software related.

If you do a Google search, there are several pages dealing with compiling SDRSharp under linux or search this groups archives as I think several others have posted similar questions in the past.

Good Luck!
