I am trying to install gnuradio on a Linux system for which I am not the
owner (university-wide computing at U of Michigan).
Since they only have swig 1.3.29 installed, I installed myself 1.3.36 on
my space (at least as a temporary solution). I also added the path to
the new swig in my path variable and
SWIG Version 1.3.36
Fine so far.
Now when I run “configure” in gnuradio it does not recognize the new
swig, but the old one…
In addition, after “configure” is run, when I do “which swig” I get the
old version not the one I installed and similarly “swig -version” gives
me the old one (ie, the one originally installed in the system).
I could circumvent this problem by changing the configure script by
right before the part of the code that checks for the swig version.
Now “configure” works fine.
However i would like to know what I am doing
wrong in the first place.
