Changing the installation directory for GR

Hi all,

I have been using gnuradio on Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS that I installed via
the ‘build gnuradio’ script and it has been going well. I use it for a
number of projects and wanted to have a separate copy to change some of
the code so I downloaded the latest tarball, extracted it to a directory
called ‘working copy’ and did:

cd working_copy/gnuradio-3.6.2/
mkdir build && cd build
make -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/home/jason/working_copy/gr

This is (relatively) the same process I’ve used in the past when
creating working copies of gnuradio before cmake.

The build went through without any warnings that seemed important, but
after ‘make test’ I get

    Start   1: qa_volk_test_all

1/143 Test #1: qa_volk_test_all … Passed 0.45
sec
Start 2: gruel-test
2/143 Test #2: gruel-test … Passed 0.86
sec
Start 3: qa_pmt
3/143 Test #3: qa_pmt … Passed 0.03
sec
Start 4: gr-core-reed-solomon-test
4/143 Test #4: gr-core-reed-solomon-test … Passed 0.02
sec
Start 5: gr-core-test-all

Then that’s it, it hangs. So my question is: what next? I didn’t see an
obvious way to add a verbose option to know what’s going on.

Thanks,
Jason

Well, we’ve been trying to hide that problem, and so far, you’re the
first person to complain. That’s actually been happening for a while,
and we’re really not sure what’s going on. We’ve narrowed down /where/
it’s happening but not /why/. I doubt it has anything to do with
setting your own install directory.

Just rerun ‘make test’. The lock happens randomly, but usually not
multiple times in a row. We’ve also never seen this lock happen in any
running applications. If it’s happening to you every time, please let
me know.

Thanks,
Tom

Tom,

It did fail 3 times in a row (that was last week). I tried it again
after your suggestion and it worked great, I guess I should have been
more optimistic this morning.

Everything is installed and the grc examples working, let me know if you
need any debug information.

Thanks again!
Jason
