FTW IEEE802.11a/g/p OFDM Frame Encoder: How to run on gnuradio v3.6.5.1?

Dear Sir,

How to make FTW work on gnuradio v3.6.5.1 ?

In my research I need to setup a 802.11 MAC SDR.
In the example published by Uwicore (
http://www.uwicore.umh.es/mhop-software.html) I have to install physical
layer developed by FTW (https://www.cgran.org/wiki/ftw80211ofdmtx).
Unfortunately the FTW part was written for gnuradio v3.2.2 while I am
currently using gnuradio

In this case the installation of FTW halted with the following

/usr/local/include/gnuradio/swig/gnuradio.i:31: Error: Unable to find

Please advise, how to make FTW installed on gnuradio v3.6.5.1 …?
Thanks in advance.

I was also trying to use that, but that is hopeless (you have to have
ubuntu 9.10, USRP2 which is EOL).
Instead you can use Bastians’s project
https://github.com/bastibl/gr-ieee802-11 .

For the record and the mailing list archives: libusrp2 was deprecated;
actual device (USRP2) is still supported and works with any version of
