(eth0) and the other to the USRP2 (eth1).
I tell each routine to use eth1 (with the -e option) and that seems
I believe at this juncture that the computer is talking to the
USRP2 and that the WBX is correctly configured. I received the
following output from USRP2 Probe:
After seeing a post by Josh B. stating that I should run HUD because
he thought that since “the usrp2 gnuradio driver has a linux specific
packet ring, and therefore wont work on a bsd environment.” I was
momentarily outraged. Does it not often seem that if you are not
running what (the ubiquitous) “they” are running the answer is always
the same? Go get on a different system is just the easy way out.
Then I thought to myself, “he said that because the underlayment of
OSX is indeed BSD.” Of course, I was running BSD when Josh was in
diapers, but that is beside the point. It is also of no consequence
that I exclaimed out loud “THERE IS A GOD!” when Apple announced that
it was moving it’s platforms to Unix. I digress…
It was clear I was on my own, so I started searching. I then
discovered “ethtool” and found that it did not want to tell me what
the so-called pause parameters were for eth1. Then I remembered what
Josh had said and thought again to myself, “maybe the problem
is on the Mac side”. This was heresy, but what the hey it’s
only bits and my time, and good grief I have spent enough of the
latter on this game.
Lo and behold, the Mac Network control panel for Ethernet 2 was set to
full-duplex, flow control! Ahhh-Hah! So, switching that allowed the
data to flow, literally. Now I have a USRP2 that is doing as it’s
told, life is good. Who said you can’t run gnuradio on a VM?
• Apple Mac Pro 2 x 3.2 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon w/4 GB 800 MHz DDR2
• Mac OS X 10.5.8 (Leopard)
• Parallels Desktop 5 for Mac build 5.0.9344/Rev 558741 2/5/2010
• Ubuntu Linux 10.04 LTS (What have you kids done to Unix?!)
• gnuradio whatever…
• USRP2 w/WBX daughterboard
Now the fun can begin. Thanks for all the tips!
