cd rtl-sdr/
mkdir build
cd build

#Disable the DVB-T driver, which would prevent the rtl_sdr tool from accessing the stick
#(if you want to use it for DVB-T reception later, you should undo this change):
sudo bash -c 'echo -e "\n# for RTL-SDR:\nblacklist dvb_usb_rtl28xxu\n" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf'
#The following line is only needed on Ubuntu 16.04 or newer to apply changes made to the blacklist settings.
sudo update-initramfs -u #only on Ubuntu 16.04 or newer
#Disable the problematic kernel module for the current session:
sudo rmmod dvb_usb_rtl28xxu
#Download OpenWebRX and libcsdr (subdirectories will be created under the current directory).
git clone https://github.com/simonyiszk/openwebrx.git
