#2

Additional parameter has been added to LMS_VCTCXORead(), LMS_VCTCXOWrite() functions for saving value to non-volatile storage. So either dont’t use the latest LimeSuite master(e.g. use stable branch or release v18.10.0 tag) or modify osmo-trx/Transceiver52M/device/lms/LMSDevice.cpp:
replace :

if (LMS_VCTCXORead(m_lms_dev, &dac_val) <0)
with:
if (LMS_VCTCXORead(m_lms_dev, &dac_val, false) <0)

and

if (LMS_VCTCXOWrite(m_lms_dev, &dac_val) < 0)
with:
if (LMS_VCTCXOWrite(m_lms_dev, &dac_val, false) < 0)

Edit: fixed LMS_VCTCXORead instead of LMS_VCTCXOWrite

#3

the latest " release " (v4.0) does not recognize --with-lms

and u meant

if (LMS_VCTCXOWrite(m_lms_dev, &dac_val) < 0)
with:
if (LMS_VCTCXOWrite(m_lms_dev, &dac_val, false) < 0)

:smiley:
thanks that worked !

Hi,

I created a ticket upstream in osmo-trx: https://osmocom.org/issues/3729

I’ll work on it sooon so both >18.10 and <=18.10 are supported (API change detected through autotools).

good job .

i were looking to report that issue , but they had no place in github to do that …
