Building on 64-bit Linux

Is there a solution for building gnuradio on 64-bit Linux using the
stable v3.4.2 release?

I’m seeing errors similar to the following thread when building gnuradio
from the v3.4.2 source tarball on RHEL 5.7 x86_64:
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/discuss-gnuradio/2011-09/msg00002.html.

I followed the procedure for cmake
(http://gnuradio.org/redmine/projects/gnuradio/wiki/CMakeWork) and
encountered new errors:

$ cmake -DPYTHON_EXECUTABLE=/usr/bin/python26
-DBOOST_INCLUDEDIR=/usr/include/boost141
-DBOOST_LIBRARYDIR=/usr/lib64/boost141
-DSWIG_EXECUTABLE=/usr/share/swig/2.0.4/bin/swig …/

If it’s hopeless to build from the stable release, what’s the best path
to a working gnuradio installation at the moment?
Thanks!Justin

Tom/Ben,

I think doxyindex.py may be relying on an xml field that older doxygen’s
do not define.

Perhaps we could put a big try/catch around this in case it fails and
print to stderr. That way the build keeps going, and its just a warning
printed out in the terminal.

You’re right, it clearly needs to be more robust. I’ll have a look
tonight.

I’ve built successfully on the latest master branch so this appears
fixed as of (or sooner):

$ git status

I’m confused how you are using cmake with the 3.4.2 tarball. That wasn’t
introduced until 3.5. And that swig-doc stuff was just put in yesterday.

Just checking to make sure there’s no confusion about something here.

It turns out that the problem was with the ‘&’ in the doxygen markup. I
was
able to change this link to one that doesn’t use ‘&’. it also looks like
this is a problem with old Doxygen format.

Hopefully, we won’t see this again or Ben can put in a quick fix for it.

I have also updated the build process such that if you specify
‘-DENABLE_DOXYGEN=False’ it does not build the swigdocs, either. So any
future problems that might occur due to issues with markup, etc., we can
at
least get around by not having these guys generated at all.

(I would also like to stop having to support Redhat, but I know too many
places are still using it.)
