cannot get Trunk Recorder to install


Jun 23, 2015
I have tried on multiple systems MacOS 10.15 and 10.13 as well as Ubunto 16.04 and it fails every time although i have followed the instructions from the Git Page... has anyone gotten this to work? if so, what are you using and what did you do?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

for those of you willing and able to help here is some more information...

I have tried multiple times to get this to work and I am hopelessly stuck. Im running 10.13
If anyone can help or point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated!
My steps that I followed.
  1. installed installed Xcode 9.4.1
  2. Installed Apple's Command Line Developer Tools
  3. agreed to Xcode license terms
  4. installed macports
  5. installed GNU radio with sudo port install gnuradio uhd gr-osmosdr
  6. Installed tools to compile trunk recorder with sudo port install cmake boost uhd libusb cppunit
Now here is the issue when i enter the following commands to build trunk recorder...
mkdir trunk-build
git clone
cd trunk-build
cmake ../trunk-recorder
It stops at
[ 69%] Building CXX object CMakeFiles/recorder.dir/trunk-recorder/
and I get the following error:

1 warning and 7 errors generated.
make[2]: *** [CMakeFiles/recorder.dir/trunk-recorder/] Error 1
make[1]: *** [CMakeFiles/recorder.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [all] Error 2
