I downloaded the latest version of Dream from subversion, much nicer, better features, paste this on to the command line instead of downloading the tarball:
svn checkout http://svn.code.sf.net/p/drm/code/dream

I had a look at the link provided, however dont understand about how to "paste it on to the command line"
certainly doesnt work in terminal

I also discovered that since my previous attempt at using Ubuntu 14.04 was not possible due to it self-updating and failing - I am now on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

This was mainly for installing GNUradio and GR-DRM

which is another problem I cannot solve

this is as far as I got:

I'm on WiFi at the moment so I'll make this brief. I don't use Ubuntu, but apparently boost libraries haven't been installed.

In order to download the Dream source you need subversion installed:
sudo apt-get install subversion
Then paste this to the terminal again:
svn checkout http://svn.code.sf.net/p/drm/code/dream

Regarding GNURadio I have never had luck fully compiling it from source on ubuntu, I do recall that you need libboost though:
sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev

Thanks for the advice.
I installed subversion and ran the checkout which seemed to bring in a list of the files r.924 or something



I tried (for the 99th time) to install FAAC and FAAD
didnt get far past the tar.gz commands with lots of file not found permission denied errors

I had another go for GR-DRM mostly by pasting into the terminal, but having to type sudo first
but I could not get any of the make to work

GR-DRM will have to wait for another day
I cant remember all the syntax required to get any of this working in Ubuntu
give me some Fortran77 code any day.

Is anyone considering DReaM on Rpi2? Now that Raspberry Pi 2 has a new ARM quad core processor it "should" be easily capable of DRM work. The bit thats stopping me trying is I dont know what to expect with the need for drivers / code to work on the new processor.

For less than $100 - RPi plus LCD display from Adafruit - it would make an attractive receiver behind either a RTL dongle or AFEDRI SDR (http://www.afedri-sdr.com/)
Actually I was inpired by another project with similar attributes
https://hackaday.io/project/1538-portablesdr

Its very hard to see whats happening on Sourceforge since the original forums have all gone

Not me, but others might be. I know that the newer ARM chips are capable though as I have a quad-core Cortex A9 processor in my 7" tablet. IIRC, DReaM ran alright on the tablet, but the RTL-SDR driver was problematic. I'll have to revisit the issue eventually. Currently, you might have more success if you use a receiver other than a RTL-SDR.

Is this update just a tag for xHE-AAC or has Julian added xHE-AAC decoding to DReaM? Has the FAAD decoder been updated for xHE-AAC or is an internal xHE-AAC decoder being considered? It's probably just the preliminary work for eventual inclusion of xHE-AAC into DReaM. Does DReaM's license allow commercial decoders? Many users of DReaM would probably pay for a commercial xHE-AAC decoder for use with it.

This link may be of special interest to potential implementations of xHE-AAC decoding function for DReaM.

A week ago a collegue compiled the latest FAAD from the https://www.audiocoding.com/downloads.html website for me - dream does not even show the service, let alone the audio being decoded.

I just compiled FAAD2 v 2.8.8 with the --with-drm option. The code size of the Slackware GNU/Linux package is about 1/3 the size of the FAAD2 v 2.7 package with the same compression so significant amounts of code were removed. I don't know if this code removal is due to increased efficiency of the code or removal of features. I tried compiling r 1031 of DReaM with FAAD2 2.8.8, but it's currently giving me an error related to QWT. I'll try updating my version of QWT to see if the compile of DReaM eventually succeeds. If not, Julian will just have to work on the code more.

Update: After upgrading to QWT 6.1.3, the compile of DReaM worked like a champ. After downloading the 100MB of drm-code, use branch, dream2018, to compile the latest version, I guess since the revision on the About page still shows r808 , of DReaM. I tested this version of DReaM with FAAD2 v 2.8.8 with a DR111 recording from a few years ago and I heard audio so the combination seems to work alright. As far as xHE-AAC, I don't know and I doubt such a decoder has been included, probably just the framework. I have no idea if xHE-AAC decoding is being included in DReaM via developments on Android. I need an xHE-AAC file to test, I guess, since Android is a derivation of GNU/Linux. Regardless, the latest combination of FAAD2 and DReaM seem to work just fine with older AAC+ files.

which I have not denied - but only with these (tested with Content Server)

Although Ahead's FAAD2 still works properly with DRM, the DRM option does restrict the overall functionality of the FAAD2 decoder. Although acceptable, a better decoder than FAAD2 is really needed for DRM listeners who desire a software-based decoder. Personally, I want a good HARDWARE based xHE-AAC decoder in a good, reliable receiver.

BTW, thanks to Alex's sample recording of AIR on 828 kHz, I used that file as it's allegedly an xHE-AAC recording to test the updated combination of FAAD2 and DReaM. I get the same response as Alex did so Julian is just laying the framework for xHE-AAC as suspected. However, Julian has fixed some noticeable bugs in revision 1031 of DReaM.

perhaps you could use this for a test: https://gofile.io/?c=UgtNWe
