Are 64-bit machines a concern for GNUradio installation?


#1

Hello,

after successfully playing around for a while with USRP and GNU (amazing
tools) and developing some modules by my own, now I’ve moved to
a more powerful PC: a 64-bit Quad Core machine. But now I cannot install
properly GNUradio and when trying to build e.g the BBN patches just
prints out:
“*** No rule to make target /swig/gnuradio.i', needed bybbn.cc’.
Stop.”

This didn’t happen before. I believe having followed all the
installation rules and I’m still puzzled about the reason behind. Now I
suspect about whether
this has something to do with the fact of running GNUradio on top of a
64-bit machine.

So, my question is: there some specific installation/ configuration
option to be followed for GNUradio in Linux / 64-bits computers?

Might someone that had similar problems give me some advice on this?

Many thanks,

Ps. my system coordinates are: Linux Kaleidoscope 2.6.24-19-generic #1

This isn’t a 64-bit problem, but a most likely a change required to
get out-of-tree builds updated to build with recent versions of the
trunk.

Most likely what’s needed is something like this in the Makefile.common:

SWIGGRFLAGS = -I$(GNURADIO_CORE_INCLUDEDIR)/swig
-I$(GNURADIO_CORE_INCLUDEDIR) $(GNURADIO_CORE_CPPFLAGS)

The bottom line is that swig needs to have the correct set of -I’s
passed to it on the command line.

You were right. At the end was just only a problem of the compiler being
not able to find the
right files. I finally hard-coded in Makefile.common the right gnuradio
include folders that the BBN
code was asking for. Now it compiled and BBN 802.11 code works nice over
Gnuradio again.

Thanks.
