Howto: Install OpenWebRX on Dreamcatcher
In the following script we download the Dreamcatcher optimized and pre-compiled files of OpenWebRX from Outernet google drive, made by the author András Retzler. Also (like in the general install) we download and compile the necessary dependencies.
sudo apt-get install build-essential git libfftw3-dev cmake libusb-1.0-0-dev rtl-sdr
git clone https://github.com/simonyiszk/csdr
sudo make install
curl -L "https://docs.google.com/uc?export=download&id=0B_oiW-fDuJnJaFR5WURqSGxXcDA" > openwebrx-dc.tgz
tar xzvf openwebrx-dc.tgz
# Edit OpenWebRX config or leave defaults
# Run OpenWebRX

Start a browser on the client PC and type:
[Dreamcatcher IP addres]:8073
This is how it looks like when the client start working:
Note: only a single user can connect to OpenWebRX now (if using 1.2Msps sampling speed like in this example) as the Dreamcatcher CPU gets quickly overloaded and audio becomes choppy. With lower sampling rates users might can have better multi users experience.
