Newbie need help with installing gnuradio 3.1.3


#1

Hi,

I am just getting started with gnuradio on Fedora 9.

While running ./bootstrap, I am getting the following error:

[root@fodora gnuradio-3.1.3]# ./bootstrap
gr-trellis/doc/Makefile.am:51: `%’-style pattern rules are a GNU make
extension

I have automake installed on my system already. Does anyone know why
and
how to fix this problem?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Pete

It could just be a warning, can you run ./configure after ./bootstrap?

Hi

Thank you for all your help. I got gnuradio installed now. To test it
with my USRP boards, I am having a few questions:

  1. I followed the example and tried to run the ./usrp_oscope.py, but
    the
    file is not under:

[root@fodora usrp]# ls /usr/local/share/gnuradio/examples/usrp
fm_tx_2_daughterboards.py usrp_nbfm_ptt.py usrp_wfm_rcv_nogui.py
fm_tx4.py usrp_nbfm_rcv.py usrp_wfm_rcv_pll.py
max_power.py usrp_spectrum_sense.py usrp_wfm_rcv.py
test_dft_analysis.py usrp_test_loop_lfsr.py usrp_wfm_rcv_sca.py
test_dft_synth.py usrp_tv_rcv_nogui.py usrp_wxapt_rcv.py
usrp_am_mw_rcv.py usrp_tv_rcv.py
usrp_benchmark_usb.py usrp_wfm_rcv2_nogui.py

  1. When I tried to run ./usrp_wfm_rcv.py, I am getting:

[root@fodora usrp]# ./usrp_wfm_rcv.py 101.5
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “./usrp_wfm_rcv.py”, line 23, in
from gnuradio import gr, gru, eng_notation, optfir
ImportError: No module named gnuradio

How to fix these problems?

  1. I have 2 RFX900 and a USRP, when positioning my RFX900 boards on
    USRP
    motherboard, the two RFX900 boards should be oriented in opposition
    direction and as long as the four holds of the RFX900 boards matched
    with
    the USRP motherboard’s, I am putting it correctly right? I just want to
    confirm it before I charge up the board.

  2. In chapter 4 of the gnuradio tutorial, it mentioned that I can test
    my
    USRP configuration by " Then connect your speaker to the sound card and
    insert a piece of wire to the RX-A connector" , How to insert " a piece
    of
    wire" to the RX-A connector. What kind of wire do I need and what
    should I
    connect the wire to on the other end?

  3. Is there any other ways of testing my USRP configuration?

Sorry for asking so many questions. I hope to be able to get started
quickly and be able to contribute back to the community as much as I
can.

Thanks in advance for all your help.

Pete

Yes, RX side A is next to the TX on side B and vice-versa:

The holes on the daughter boards must line up with the holes on the main
board. Make sure!! Put in the screws if you must.

Perhaps if you have a basic RX daughter board, you could stick a wire
into the SMA connector and get some FM or AM audio signals. Any type of
wire will do, just strip it and stick it into the center hole on the
connector.

Same for the TVRX daughter board.

You can do a loop back test. Connect the RX to the TX, generate a signal
with usrp_siggen.py and receive the signal with usrp_fft.py.

Make sure you check usrp_fft.py --help and usrp_siggen.py --help and get
all the options right.

Thanks in advance for all your help.

If you are feeling adventurous, install the latest gnuradio development
trunk or the 3.2 release candidate branch and check out GRC:

AFAIK it’s not a problem. It’s just a message that crops up every time
you bootstrap, at least on Ubuntu.

When you have followed the instructions for your OS to the letter. Come
