Comment I give up = throwing in the towel (Score 0) 710

after spending a few bucks on a Software defined radio and researching the apps available for SDRs and trying both Linux and windows and building from source on Linux VS installing binaries it has come to light that it dont matter if you build from source or install binaries from package managers SDR on Linux SUCKS!, and on windows it performs better (not great but better) and i dont have the time or inclination to roll my own anymore, so i became operating system agnostic, i dont care anymore if it is Linux or windows, whatever OS has the apps pre-rolled that work the best is all i are about, and so far WIndows wins in the SDR dept, but i still do all my general purpose computing on Linux for the time being = the love affair with linux is over, i dont have the time to fiddlefuck with Linux anymore, so whatever OS has the right app for the job gets the job, if not it gets pushed to the back burner

they can watch me pick my nose, and scratch my ass, and then i will wash my hands and cook lunch, since i almost killed myself on a motorcycle i am as harmless as a kitten, i can barely walk anymore, now that i am more comfortable in a chair i am considering teaching myself some basic coding on linux and maybe if i am lucky i will make some software that will make people happy

Comment GNURadio-Companion & Hamlib (Score 1) 42

can GNURadio-companion incorporate hamlib as a library to run the radio and basically use gnuradio-companion to build some simple front ends for hamlib? i have a Ten-Tec RX320 and Grig is not much as a front end, i was hoping to build a nicer front end that was more specific to this HF receiver and include a waterfall feature to get a good look at a few KCs of spectrum, i use Linux exclussively so there is not a windows PC for me to do this in, if i get good and skilled at this i would love to build a FOSS HamRadioDeluxe clone for Linux with ease of use and feature rich to include all the radios both hamlib and gnuradio will run,
