In the past, I’ve always used the build-gnuradio script to install
everything with great success. This ensures that I have all the latest
versions of both GNU Radio and UHD.
However, I recently got a new machine and installed Ubuntu 14.04 on it
haven’t had any issues with 14.04 before). I updated the OS to the
version and then tried using build-gnuradio. Immediately I started
issues. First, the script was unable to install git, cmake, and other
dependencies. However, I was manually able to do a “sudo apt-get” on
of these packages and at least get to the point where the script tries
Now I’ve run into a strange issue where “make install” for UHD appears
put all the .hpp files in the right place, but the script fails because
can’t find the uhd_find_devices command. I’ve tried to manually make
install UHD with the same effects. It tells me that all the .hpp files
in the correct directory, but I still cannot locate the uhd_find_devices
command. Note that running build-gnuradio with the verbose flag set
throw any errors that I can see.
Has anyone experienced similar issues? Does the simple “sudo apt-get
install gnuradio” command install the latest versions of UHD and GNU
Radio? I am also leaning towards trying a PyBOMBS based install. That
said, I don’t think I’m doing anything differently this time around and
I’ve always had good luck with using build-gnuradio.
Thanks in advance for the help.
