Bug Fixers Needed

Hi all,

Martin sent out an email a few days ago letting you know that we’re
trying to use the issue tracker
(http://gnuradio.org/redmine/projects/gnuradio/issues) to report and
fix bugs in a more timely manner.

As part of that process I’m going to send out an occasional email to
the list, to remind everyone that the issue tracker exists, and bring
outstanding bugs to peoples attention. If anyone feels like having a
go at fixing a bug then assign yourself to it in the issue tracker, so
that we don’t get multiple people working on it at the same time.

Bugs that need some attention are:

http://gnuradio.org/redmine/issues/502
The ‘Persistence’ option that comes with most wxgui-sinks rarely
works, and always produces crashes if it doesn’t.

http://gnuradio.org/redmine/issues/421 and
http://gnuradio.org/redmine/issues/496
gr_prefs in C++ does not work

http://gnuradio.org/redmine/issues/495
gr-audio portaudio: doesn’t work on windows
gr-audio windows: source is not implemented

http://gnuradio.org/redmine/issues/494
volk_rank_archs.c is not added in the MSVC project

Cheers,
Ben

I think we could detect this feature and change the label text to “crash
me” if not present.

I would not be able to build volk if this was the case. Close it.

My preference for this one is to simply disable the feature altogether
until someone does a top-to-bottom re-write of our
use of wxGUI/PyGl that manages, as if by magic, to successfully skirt
around all the bugs in OpenGL. OpenGL is a farking
minefield of “oh sorry, that feature is now a hardware dependent
feature, and you don’t have this weeks hardware, so,
well, SEGFAULT”.

Does the relatively-simple 2D rendering done by GNu Radio graphs really
require OpenGL? I"m not an expert, by any means,
but those types of graphs (simple line graphs, and even the
waterfall) were the sorts of things we were doing over 100Mbit
connections to an X-terminal 20 years ago. No OpenGL.

Exactly!

So, any volunteers?
