I was wondering how much effort would take to port the rtl-sdr libraries? Requirements are quite sparse, namely: libusb, cmake, ninja – all of them are present in Haiku. I’m no developer and haven’t touched code in years but I’m willing to give it a go, unless someone with more experience can chime in (and do it in 1/3 time it’ll take me).
This may possibly open an entire category of usage scenarios, starting with SDR apps, and random things like DAB receiving or astronomic/weather observation. All things that resonate well with a media-centric OS like Haiku, methinks.
