    Question 5 weeks ago on Step 4

    Hi,

    Do you have any more information on this project?
    Such as details on where you need to install Dumpvdl2, in what directory etc.

    I followed the steps provided but what do I need to do to run the software?

    Thank you in advance.

    Andrew.

    All the details are given in the article.
    Personally I had installed the software in several folders and had not observed anomalies. The result shown in the video, if I remember correctly, was achieved by installing the software in a folder on the desktop.

    To run the software you must read and understand the following:

    "Default receive mode, attempt to decode all known devices, open terminal insert:

    ./dumpvdl2 --rtlsdr 0

    Simplest case on RTLSDR dongle - uses RTL device with index 0, sets the tuner gain to 40 dB and tuning correction to 42 ppm, listens to the default VDL2 frequency of 136.975 MHz, outputs to standard output:

    Hi,

    Thank you for the information.
    In Step 3: Installation, it shows,

    “Open terminal to the top level directory dumpvdl2 and insert command:

    cd dumpvdl2

    sudo make“

    Isn’t there more to the installation than this?

    According to the GIT DumpVDL the installation is as follows,

    the new software version requires a few more steps:

    Install necessary dependencies (unless you have them already). Example for
    Debian / Raspbian:

    sudo apt install build-essential cmake git libglib2.0-dev pkg-config

    Install libacars library - either:

    • download a stable release package from here
    • or clone the source repository with:

    cd
    git clone https://github.com/szpajder/libacars
    cd libacars

    Compile and install the library:

    mkdir build
    cd build
    cmake ../
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo ldconfig
