How to write a block - segmentation fault

Hello,
When running “make check” as outlined in the gr-howto-write-a-block
tutorial, I am receiving a segmentation fault. I am running Ubuntu 6.10
(Edgy Eft) with linux kernel release 2.6.17-11-386 and GNU Radio 3.0.
GNU
Radio is otherwise functional, as I successfully run usrp_fft.py and
benchmark_usb.py. The end of the error messages echoed to the screen
follow:

sudo make check
=============================================

make[2]: Entering directory
/home/rdmiller/gr/gnuradio/gr-howto-write-a-block/src/python' make check-TESTS make[3]: Entering directory/home/rdmiller/gr/gnuradio/gr-howto-write-a-block/src/python’
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
FAIL: run_tests
===================
1 of 1 tests failed
===================
make[3]: *** [check-TESTS] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory
/home/rdmiller/gr/gnuradio/gr-howto-write-a-block/src/python' make[2]: *** [check-am] Error 2 make[2]: Leaving directory/home/rdmiller/gr/gnuradio/gr-howto-write-a-block/src/python’
make[1]: *** [check-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory
`/home/rdmiller/gr/gnuradio/gr-howto-write-a-block/src’
make: *** [check-recursive] Error 1

================================================

Any help in fixing this is greatly appreciated. I’ve read about
re-compiling FFTW without the --enable-sse option, however other threads
have suggested that I do not need to recompile FFTW when running Ubuntu.

Thanks,
Rob

Do you really need to build this as “root”?

Now that’s room service! Choose from over 150,000 hotels

No, I just tried it as root as a quick (but silly) test. I get the same
results with “make check”.

Thanks,
Rob

No.

Depending on ownership and permissions in the install directory, you
may need additional privileges for make install. FWIW, I set my
machine up so that my normal user can write the install directory.
