I don't think so.

I'm (was) just trying to  update my FW.
This needs two actions, one in HackRf-one and the other in my PC (host)

I thought (may be I'm wrong) that the answers where in: <> <>

Updating the FW itself was an easy task.

Now, when I have done what is written in I faced one issue.

May be I should know and do something which is well known by everybody.
This "cookbook" however is missing explanation for somebody who is not aware of prerequisites.

That's the issue.

Solved, thanks to Phil information.

I think you might be thinking that apt-get download some file to your pc and u think there is a host directory missing

This is not the case

apt-get knows where to install it for you

Thank you for the precision. I was aware of this.
The question (remark) should have been related to the host directory.
After "|sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake libusb-1.0-0-dev pkg-config libfftw3-dev", *where is this host directory supposed to be?*|

|Some explaination is missing.|

|With the unzip of "| <>" I've it.

If I misunderstand something it is here.
And explaination is welcome.

Thank you for your help

cmake ..

Means in LINUX “cmake but go BACK one directory”
