I have been trying this for some time with various versions of suse and still not there. I can get the packages to run and do flow charts etc but not connect to any real sources such as an RTL2832 device as I get an error saying can not load.
But after I had an issue with my dual boot Win10 and leap 42.3 of loosing the option to boot both linux and windows I thought I must be on a roll and lets try it again.
I loaded GNU radio not from the standard suse repository but from mnhauke:sdr. repository and it gave me a later version, also on the site are all the other requirements, so I installed
libhackrf and another few packages to give hackrf libs etc.
But no matter what I do I can not get an RTL2832 device to work in suse linux, I have in Ubuntu but not suse
This is the message I get when i try to run anything:
Using device#0 Generic RTL2832U OEM
Please fix the device permissions, e.g. by installing the udev rules file rtl-sdr.rules
FATAL: Failed to open SDR device
Now I have checked and I have rtl-sdr rules installed as it is part of the package rtl-sdr-udev
I have tried adding to the blacklist in /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf
in fact I added the same as I needed in Ubuntu which was
The above was found somewhere on the internet but worked for me in Ubuntu
The last thing i have checked is by doing a lsusb -v command and found this:
Bus 001 device 005: ID 0dba:2838 realtek semeconductor Corp. RTL2838 DVB-T
Coudn’t open device, some information will be missing
it seems to be missing stuff like iManufacturer
iSerial etc when compared to Ubuntu
So wonder if there needs to be a revision of the modules?
Please help if you can, I prefer Suse, and would love to get this all working on this laptop before I get my harkrf one.
I am not a guru, and only barely understand what I am doing so guidance is much appreciated from anyone that has it working.
