Failure to build GNU Radio on various Ubuntu builds

Hello, After trying to install GNU Radio over the past few days
I’vebeen unsuccessful due to various failures of GNU Radio to build. The
latest error is as follows:- Segmentation fault (core
for target ‘gr-blocks/swig/blocks_swig5_doc.i’ failedmake[2]: ***
[gr-blocks/swig/blocks_swig5_doc.i] Error 139CMakeFiles/Makefile2:3254:

***[gr-blocks/swig/CMakeFiles/blocks_swig5_swig_doc.dir/all] Error

failedExiting Gnu Radio build/install As mentioned, this is the latest
error of a series ofmany other errors occurring during previous
install/build attempts but whichwould be too numerous to mention
here. I’ve tried installing using Marcus’s script from the ShirleyBay
server but the install fails near the end when attempting to build
asmentioned above. I modified Marcus’s script at one point to get the
install torun more successfully although eventually even that
modification to a line inthe script fails to lead to a successful
overall build but it does appear tobuild further doing that. On this
occasion, I’ve tried various distro’s of Ubuntu(12.04 LTS, 14.04 LTS –
32 bit and 15.04 64 bit) but none accommodate theinstall of GNU Radio
without some error or other. I feel I have installed prerequisites and
so forth andprerequisites from various suggestions in the various
threads on other sitesdiscussing the install of GNU Radio on Ubuntu. I
should say that I’ve installed GNURadio successfully manytimes in the
past, using 12.04 LTS and installing GNU Radio on Windows 7 andthis has
been great to use with my Ettus USRP B100 (using UHD) at the
time.However, today, some two years later I want to use GNU Radio a lot
more andhopefully write modules and develop a SDR UI for my Ettus device
but I don’tappear to be having any success at the GNU Radio install
which is frustrating. I’ve used so much time up trying to overcome the
variousissues, I’m now turning to ask for help as I feel I’ve exhausted
every approachI can try with my present knowledge level. All help and
guidance is very much appreciated and manythanks in advance. Mark.

Two comments, it’s hard to provide any assistance with this since you
include any logs so we don’t know what the exact problem is.

However, I suggest you just use the gnuradio that comes packaged in the
latest ubuntu. ‘apt-get install gnuradio’. If you insist on a source
then I always like to do at least a apt-get build-dep gnuradio on fresh
installs. (but it’s worth asking yourself if you really need the source
build, especially since it’s causing so much grief)

A further comment–that seg fault is probably the compiler running out
of memory–not very graceful of it, to be sure.

You should add more swap space to make up for lower system memory (how
much do you have?)
