(Latest update: hackrf can be used smoothly in Ubuntu VMware under Mac OS)

test some cases to see if rtlsdr hackRF and bladeRF can work in virtual machine smoothly.

rtlsdr dongle and bladeRF work well in virtual machine for this LTE Cell Scanner, while hackrf_info always reports:

Found HackRF board.
hackrf_board_id_read() failed: HACKRF_ERROR_LIBUSB (-1000)

Since rtlsdr and bladeRF work in virtual machina, there is a hope for hackrf to work also? Any ideas or suggestions?

My computer configuration:

host OS: Win7
guest OS: Ubuntu14 (LTS)
virtual machine: VMware 10.0.4
mainboard: ASUS P9X79 PRO -LGA 2011/Intel X79 /ATX
CPU: i7 3930K -3.2GHz/LGA 2011/12M 120W
memory: Kingston HyperX 16G(4GBx4) DDR3 1600 KHX1600C9D3K4/16GX
graphic: GTX550TI 950MHz/4100MHz 1GB/192BIT DDR5 PCI-E

Hope above is useful for someone.
