Errors running outernet demod application on Dreamcatcher Armbian

Unable to get Locked on Freq, but this is a “black box” app, so ill need some guidance… we shouldn’t need Userspace, but again i don’t know what they are trying to do in this app…

Error setting new values. Common errors:

  • Do you have proper administration rights? (super-user?) <— Im root
  • Is the governor you requested available and mod probed? <— dunno what governor your requesting
  • Trying to set an invalid policy? <— dunno what policy your requesting
  • Trying to set a specific frequency, but userspace governor is not available,
    for example because of hardware which cannot be set to a specific frequency
    or because the userspace governor isn’t loaded? <-- userspace is not available, see cpufreq-info below

analyzing CPU 0:
driver: cpufreq-dt
CPUs which run at the same hardware frequency: 0
CPUs which need to have their frequency coordinated by software: 0
maximum transition latency: 244 us.
hardware limits: 432 MHz - 1.01 GHz
available frequency steps: 432 MHz, 576 MHz, 624 MHz, 864 MHz, 912 MHz, 1.01 G
available cpufreq governors: ondemand, performance <-- default was "ondemand"
current policy: frequency should be within 480 MHz and 1.01 GHz.
The governor “performance” may decide which speed to use
within this range.
current CPU frequency is 1.01 GHz (asserted by call to hardware).

I confirmed that the SDR works for FM broadcast, simple ham radio narrow fm (scanner) at 146.880 mHz and 1.2 gHz repeaters.

insight into the Outernet demod application, to include any debug settings available will be helpful.

as another step i confirmed that the same location SDR and setup works with the standard DreamCatcher SDCard, i then shut that down, and re-insert this Armbian, and try the same command line used (seen in the PS listing) on this one…
