I have been contracted by Ettus R. to help maintain UHD and GNU
Radio on Mac OS X, and have new contact email for this position: <
removed_email_addres[email protected] >. I have (re)subscribed to this list using
my new email contact. If you use any version of Mac OS X with UHD
and/or GNU Radio, whether installing from binary or source, using
MacPorts, HomeBrew, Fink, or some other means, and you have issues
and/or questions, please feel free to contact me at any of my email
addresses or via this list. I will reply back from my ettus.com email.
Please note that discussions for this specific list should be primarily
about GNU Radio, but any background dependency issues are also fair game
– though expect the discussion to go off-list quickly. In general, UHD
and GNU Radio work well on Mac OS X, so this is expected to be very
part-time work for me when averaged over months.
On my queue right now are three primary items:
(1) In MacPorts, the WX ports are dysfunctional as well as some
currently fail to build. I am working with the primary MacPorts
developer of these ports to resolve this issue as quickly as we can. He
has done most of the work to date, with me mostly contributing advice
but also a little programming assistance. I have verified that UHD and
the various GNU Radio ports work with this new setup; it’s mostly now a
matter of time and some small tweaks before this change is merged with
the MacPorts trunk.
(2) At least for me, “make test” fails on Mac OS X unless “make install”
is performed first. I’m looking into reworking parts of the CMake
configure scripts to handle testing more robustly.
(3) Mac OS X audio sink and/or source is reportedly not working
correctly for all sample rates. I’m looking into reworking parts of the
OSX audio sink and/or source to handle sample rates more robustly, as
well as handle some other situations and provide some new features.
I look forward to hearing from Mac OS X users, hopefully mostly your
successes but also issues if you have any beyond those listed above as
well as suggestions for other additions into MacPorts to make your life
easier. - MLD
