Pulseview compilation

Half year ago i wanted to make device that can be used to clone ski pass. I thought that ski passes use RFID 125kHz. First i bought itead module RDM6300 but it turned out that it can only read tags, so i bought  EM4095 chip. At this time i also noticed, that most ski passes use MIFARE tags that operated at 13MHz.
Anyway i want to complete this project and build device that can read and write 125kHz tags (really there is to many different tags that operate on 125kHz and uses different protocols, so i want to start with EM4100 tags).That tags use manchester encoding to transfer data, also tags can use different bitrate. It is easy task to encode data into manchester, but it’s really pain in the ass if you want to decode them and does not know bitrate.
I have clone of saleae logic analizer so i decided to practice with decode manchester with libsigrokdecode. Sigrok have ‘official’ gui for libsigrok and libsigrokdecode called Pulseview.
I found that debian wheezy have old libsigrok and do not have pulseview at all, after that i decided to build sigrok and pulseview from scratch. It is really not easy quest, because additionally to libsigrok, libsigrokdecode you need to compile old libusb and libvisa.
Finally when i compiled all that stuff, i faced with errors when i tried to compile pulseview with decoders support.

First, libsigrokdecode need Python >= 3.0, Python.h placed in python3.2/Python.h, so you need to change it into libsigrokdecode.h:

./include/libsigrokdecode/libsigrokdecode.h:#include <python3.2/Python.h> /* First, so we avoid a _POSIX_C_SOURCE warning. */

Second, if you will got that error:

[ 40%] Building CXX object CMakeFiles/pulseview.dir/pv/view/decodetrace.cpp.o
/var/tmp/sigrok/pulseview/pv/view/decodetrace.cpp: In member function ‘virtual void pv::view::DecodeTrace::paint_mid(QPainter&, int, int)’:
/var/tmp/sigrok/pulseview/pv/view/decodetrace.cpp:203:3: error: ‘hash_combine’ is not a member of ‘boost’
/var/tmp/sigrok/pulseview/pv/view/decodetrace.cpp:204:3: error: ‘hash_combine’ is not a member of ‘boost’
/var/tmp/sigrok/pulseview/pv/view/decodetrace.cpp:205:3: error: ‘hash_combine’ is not a member of ‘boost’
make[2]: *** [CMakeFiles/pulseview.dir/pv/view/decodetrace.cpp.o] Error 1

Then you need to add “#include <boost/functional/hash.hpp>” into /var/tmp/sigrok/pulseview/pv/view/decodetrace.cpp

Third,  if you got that:

CMakeFiles/pulseview.dir/pv/data/decoderstack.cpp.o: In function `pv::data::DecoderStack::decode_proc(boost::shared_ptr<pv::data::Logic>)':
/var/tmp/sigrok/pulseview/pv/data/decoderstack.cpp:267: undefined reference to `srd_session_new'
/var/tmp/sigrok/pulseview/pv/data/decoderstack.cpp:283: undefined reference to `srd_inst_stack'

You need to add -lsigrokdecode into CMakeFiles/pulseview.dir/link.txt

I spent too many time to compile that stuff, so i decided to place here archive with complete libsigrok, libsigrokdecode, libvisa, libusb, sigrok and pulseview. I compiled it with preffix /opt/sigrok, so if you want to use it, place that stuff into /opt and run like that:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/sigrok/lib /opt/sigrok/bin/pulseview

Enjoy: sigrok.tar
md5: 7bbb1d434959848c741230fe90a590c5 /tmp/sigrok.tar.gz
Also you must install  libboost-thread.

    OMG, at last! Thanks! Had a lot of problems compiling all this stuff. Stuck with pulseview compilation, got an error in mainbar.cpp:

    mainbar.cpp:331:12: error: could not convert ‘gvar’ from ‘Glib::VariantContainerBase’ to ‘bool’
