Starting point

Compiling stuff is a pain in the ass.

Master references:


Do not use the dvb drivers on the CD or your OS. Those are for the dvb mode and not the debug mode that outputs raw samples. Linux 3.x kernel should check with "$ lsmod dvb_usb_rtl28xxu" and if found at least "$ sudo modprobe -r dvb_usb_rtl28xxu" to unload it. Be careful about gnuradio-3.7 installs that may leave behind problem files.

Gnuradio is something different. ;)
