Bias Tee issue on MacOS

Post by mrspriggs1 » Mon Dec 17, 2018 6:32 pm

I own a RTL-SDR (RTL2832U) V.3 and I also bought the RTL-SDR Blog Wideband LNA, When I go to compile the software as per the instructions, ... ser-guide/ for turning the LNA off and on I get errors and can't continue. It happens at the "make" step. Any help would be great.

ld: symbol(s) not found for architecture x86_64
clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)
make[2]: *** [src/librtlsdr.0.5git.dylib] Error 1
make[1]: *** [src/CMakeFiles/rtlsdr_shared.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [all] Error 2

Orginal instructions:
To enable the bias tee in Linux:
In Linux or MacOS download the source from git, compile it the same way you do the regular RTL-SDR drivers, and then run ./rtl_biast -b 1 to turn the bias tee on and ./rtl_biast -b 0 to turn the bias tee off. The procedure is:

git clone
cd rtl_biast
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
cd src
./rtl_biast -b 1
