Spyserver: Could not acquire the device


Ruben Navarro Huedo (EA5BZ)
 

Hello friends:
I was running fine spyserver with rtl-sdr on my rasp but i had a problem with the SD and i had to reinstall raspbian.
In this new setup rtlsdr is running ok with Satnogs and with rtl_test but not with spyserver.
What do you think?
Thank's a lot..
