Cgran is weird

I was trying to install the 802.11b Receiver from

So I followed the instruction to download the source files using the svn
svn co -r7596 gnuradio_r7596

It gave following message but no file was downloaded.
$ svn co -r7596
svn: OPTIONS of ‘’: 200 OK (

Another attempt gave following error message:
$ svn co -r7596
svn: OPTIONS of ‘’: could not
connect to server (

What was wrong? Has cgran been migrated to another location …?

That project is wildly out-of-date. Gnu Radio hasn’t been using SVN
for many years.

CGRAN is just a hosting site for these projects–it’s up to the
maintainers of said projects to keep their info up-to-date, which
clearly hasn’t been done
with that project.

CGRAN founder, here!

Like Marcus said, it’s just out of date code and instructions. This is
bound to happen with the majority of projects over time. But, the
to anyone is that parts of them can be used to build new things, and if
really need functionality provided by one of those projects: something
better than nothing to build from.

That said, if you do get this project installed and running: please
the wiki instructions :slight_smile:


It would be good to have a list of up to date modules.

I’ve found less projects being contributed to CGRAN in general right
This is likely to due with the migration to git and github providing a
nice interface with wikis for each project. So, the majority of
on CGRAN right now are a bit dated :\

That said, I’ve been thinking of overhauling CGRAN a bit to be more
friendly to externally hosted projects and github in general. Really,
meant to be a way for people to find 3rd party applications.

Once I finish my Ph.D. defense (tomorrow-- woot!), I’ll have some more
to think about it…
