newbie question

Post by SDRnerd » Sun Jul 07, 2019 3:54 pm


Just starting to mount a RSP on a Raspberry Pi4 and run into some command line problems. I'm a new user of the Pi and apart from some old basic code from back in 1982, of wich I have forgotten most of, are making my first steps in Raspian.

When trying to install the RSP I got stuck when making a SoapySDR build. What happens is that after the command cd build line the instruction " cmake ../ " is not recognised. The Pi answers with " bash: cmake: command not found "

Any suggestions?

Not all of the code building commands are pre-installed. In a terminal window, run...

sudo apt install cmake

this will install the cmake command. There may be others that you run into.

Best regards,
