piaware on another platform?


I’m pretty sure this is possible, and have made some (hackish) attempts to get it going, but figured I’d ask before completely re-inventing the wheel.

Is it possible to get piaware running on something other than a Debian based linux platform? I’m specifically looking at MacOS X.

I have the Dongle running, I have dump1090 compiled and running. I think I’ve mostly got piaware installed running, but am getting this error when I try to start it:

sudo piaware -debug

I seem to be in the same situation currently. Were you able to resolve this error?
