How do you down load the RS-API ?

Postby NeilP » Thu Mar 14, 2019 5:02 pm

Hi
This is in relation to a Raspberry Pi running on a Lite system headless.

when building the system to run Soapy Remote, you need to download the file:
SDRplay_RSP_API-RPi-2.11.1.run
or what ever its latest iteration is/

Yes there is a link on the downloads page
https://www.sdrplay.com/downloads/
but for a headless system with no web browser this is not possible..

OK< so a work around is to enable Smaba on the Pi, download on another machine and copy it across..or put it on a USB stick...but that is a pain.

Can you give the link please on the downloads page..rather than embed it within the php. so we can use...what is it...wget ?


Thanks

You can upload it with FTP or SSH, simplest way is to download mc (midnight-commander) then make an SSH connection to the Pi.
Normally it will tunnel SFTP and transfers the file to where you want.

Then go into the Pi with SSH and "chmod +x filename" and ./filename to run it.

mc for Windows: https://sourceforge.net/projects/mcwin32/

Always done it this way, works great and simple.

To install mc on the Pi itself:

Code: Select all

apt update && apt install mc


Very handy tool to work headless, I use it all the time.

I did similar, I enabled Samba and used shared folder

But I was wanting to find how to download it directly to the Pi from the command line /SSH

I did eventually find the actual file location amidst the php code in the page then used wget .

Well, Firefox did solve the mystery as to where the file is coming from:

Code: Select all

wget https://www.sdrplay.com/software/SDRplay_RSP_API-Linux-2.13.1.run


Tada!!! :lol:

Looks about right
Sorry I did not post the answer, as I was not near my machine when I previously replied, was replying from the phone
