Subject: problem with USRP
To: Eric B. <removed_email_address@domain.invalid>

Hi Eric,
I used the VM Ware player , on which i run my linux- UBUNTU-8.04
I am able to configure all gnu software packages perfectly, I was able
to
run "hello world" example.

Now when I connect the USRP board with USB cable, the green light will
flashing with 2hz freq. but after that
I found that there is no such file usrp_firmware.ihx in
usr/local/share/usrp/ver2 or ver4,
so my hardware does not detected.

so from various online help i came to know that my following procedure
with
latest USRP version, it will created automatically in that destination.

./bootstrap
./configure
both are run perfectly but when I run the make command I get the error
like
fusb_linux.cc:30:28: error: linux/compiler.h: No such file or directory
make[3]: *** [fusb_linux.lo] Error 1

I attached full log of ./bootstrap, ./configure and make for your
further
ref.
I really stuck up with this problem, I tried with many version of USRP
but
it will give the same error.
please help me.

thanks and regards
Tushar patel

You appear to be compiling ancient code.

Please use either the svn trunk or the latest tarball.

I found the linux/compiler.h file in other place, I gave the path in
fusb_linux.cc and able to run all make, check make, install make.
It will gererate the usrp_firmware.ihx file also but it will generate in
rev0 and rev1, I used the usrp-0.5 tar from your link.
 still I do not able to detact my USRP hardware,
so that USRP tar is old or what, I do not able to resolve it
pl. guide me

Hi I able to detect the USPR board with VM ware player.
I also test with the command shows in help
ls -lR /dev/bus/usb | grep usrp
 i got the output as per mention,
Now I have the basic Tx and basic Rx board, so what are the example
availble
on which I can run with these basic Tx anr basic Rx board ?
thanks and regards

great. test your installation with the following programs to start with.
Look in the following directory /usr/local/share/gnuradio/examples

There are lots of examples that you can start with. In the digital
directory
you can use benchmark_tx.py and bechmark_rx.py to test transmit and
receive
using two USRPs. You can use tunnel.py to make usrp behave as ethernet .
Test the sound card using the programs in audio directory.

If you have questions then ask us. :-)

Bye

Hi try to run usrp_oscope.py and usrp_fft.py, which are gui type
exaples.
but application run then it show oUoUoU error,
which I fount the USRP overrun.
I run all this on VMware platform.
I am using amd 64 turion, 3gb ram configuration.
So I do not able to understand why my system getting low.

Also I would like to run FM radio, I have only one tx and one rx board,
can
I run sterio FM,

thanks and regards
