Look at the beginning of the error messages for something like “can not find foobar. Verify this with “lsmod”.
This document describes how to f245 the ft driver on a modern Linux system. Or try loading it with modprobe as root. If you downloaded Linrad and ran “make sdr14”, then the ft driver is installed in a different way. Do not search package names gt245 descriptions; search for files. Use your package or RPM software to install these packages plus any dependencies: All drivers are compiled for a specific kernel version, and that requires the kernel header files.
You can write me at user name jahlstr computer gmail. This is where the modinfo command comes in handy. If you get the error message. The correct file on my system is ft The old version will not even be found, and may not work anyway.
See the FTDI site for currently available drivers. If you are writing code for the ft there are a few things you should know.
Installing the ft245 USB Driver
It gives the version of the kernel that is running on your computer. The other drivers may be preferred for applications other than SDR. But if you are using Linrad, see below because Linrad has its own way of installing the driver.
The package names above are top-level packages that depend on the most recent version of Linux. You can load the driver by hand with “modprobe ft” you will need to be root.
By the way, if you have multiple hardwares, they have names ft, ft, ft, The receive buffer is not a circular buffer. This is a rt245 time to become familiar with the uname -r command: That means that when a newer version of Linux comes out, the most recent headers are downloaded too.
The file is a. It is easy to lose bytes by starting another program, moving windows around on the screen, etc. So you must be sure to read all available characters before the buffer has a chance to overflow.

That means you need the file foobar. Note that some systems use modprobe. Install the fr245 that contains foobar. You will linus an error message if you load the wrong one. Assuming the SDR-IQ is running and returning data blocks, I try to resynchronize by looking for the data block start 0x00, 0x Then from a terminal in that directory, compile the ft driver by entering “make”.
If you get a lot of error messages, don’t panic; you are probably just missing another header file.
Installing the ft Driver
Besides, it is fun to know how things work. Ft45 first step is to install some packages you may not have. Even if things seem to work, they may fail in the future if the wrong driver accidentally gets loaded first.
