Is WUBI (Lucid) a viable environment for GNU-Radio (3.2.2)?

I recently purchased a USRP and have a fresh install of WUBI (HP
Pavillion DV5 , Windows Home Vista) and used
gnuradio.org/redmine/wiki/gnuradio/UbuntuInstall to install things.

I passed ‘make check’ correctly

I have my username in the group usrp

[email protected]:~/gnuradio$ ls -lR /dev/bus/usb | grep usrp
crw-rw---- 1 root usrp 189, 132 2010-09-21 11:14 005

when I execute ./usrp_benchmark_usb.py I get:

Testing 2MB/sec… gr_vmcircbuf_createfilemapping: createfilemapping is
not available
/home/john/.gnuradio/prefs/gr_vmcircbuf_default_factory: Permission
denied
uUuOuUuOuUuOuUuOuUuOuUuOuUuOuUuOuUuOuUuOuUuOuOuUuOuUuOuUuOuUuOuUuOuUuOuU^Z

and it hangs so I kill it

[1]+ Stopped ./usrp_benchmark_usb.py

I cannot repeat this operation as I get

Testing 2MB/sec… usrp_open_interface:usb_set_alt_interface: failed
could not set alt intf 0/0: Connection timed out
open_nth_cmd_interface: open_cmd_interface failed
usrp: failed to load firmware /usr/share/usrp/rev4/std.ihx.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “./usrp_benchmark_usb.py”, line 106, in
main ()

      snip.........

unless I move the USRP to a new USB port in which case I get the first
symptom again

I have seen similar posts elsewhere re: issues with USB ports, Python
and VirtualBox

so my question is has anyone been able to run GNURADIO on WUBI?

Kind Regards,

    Slainte,

              John

Just to rule out a flakey cable, can you try using a different USB 2
cable?
