Binary installation of GNU 3.2 to Ubuntu 9.04


#1

Hi, I am new to the GNU forum.
I installed GNU 3.2 binary on Ubuntu 9.04 according to the web
instruction.
To check out the installation, I ran dpkg -l gnuradio.
The response was

Desired=Unknown/Install/Remove/Purge/Hold
| Status=Not/Inst/Cfg-files/Unpacked/Failed-cfg/Half-inst/trig-aWait/Trig-pend
|/ Err?=(none)/Hold/Reinst-required/X=both-problems (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name          Version       Description
++±==============-==============-============================================
ii gnuradio      3.2           The GNU Software Radio Toolkit

I also tried typing lsusrp without actually connecting to an USRP.
The results were
usrp: failed to find usrp[0]
usrp: failed to find usrp[1]
usrp: failed to find usrp[2]
usrp: failed to find usrp[3]
usrp: failed to find usrp[4]
usrp: failed to find usrp[5]
usrp: failed to find usrp[6]
usrp: failed to find usrp[7]

Can anybody confirm that my binary installation was successful?

Thanks,
–Vic

You likely need to add your user account to group ‘usrp’ and log out,
then back in. It’s also possible your USRP is not powered or the USB
cable is disconnected.

Sorry, I missed the part about not actually having a connected USRP.

To verify your GNU Radio installation, go to:

$ cd /usr/share/gnuradio/examples/audio

Then run the dial tone example application:

$ ./dial_tone.py

(Type CTRL-C to exit.)

If you hear the tone, then it’s working.
