No UHD blocks in GNURadio

I installed GNU on ubuntu 12.04 lts before installing UHD from
http://gnuradio.org/redmine/projects/gnuradio/wiki/UbuntuInstall
by running the following commands:

sudo apt-get -y install git-core autoconf automake libtool g++
python-dev swig
pkg-config libboost1.48-all-dev libfftw3-dev libcppunit-dev libgsl0-dev

libusb-dev sdcc libsdl1.2-dev python-wxgtk2.8 python-numpy
python-cheetah python-lxml doxygen python-qt4 python-qwt5-qt4 libxi-dev

libqt4-opengl-dev libqwt5-qt4-dev libfontconfig1-dev libxrender-dev

git clone http://gnuradio.org/git/gnuradio.git
cd gnuradio
mkdir build
cd build
cmake …/
make
make test
sudo make install

But I didn’t find UHD blocks when I open gnu by running
“gnuradio-companion” in terminal.
So I installed UHD from
http://code.ettus.com/redmine/ettus/projects/uhd/wiki/GNURadio_Linux
from
the unstable repositories.

I wanted to check if the GNU & UHD are installed or not so I ran in
terminal :
[email protected]:~$ dpkg -l uhd
Desired=Unknown/Install/Remove/Purge/Hold

rc uhd 003.007.000-1-stable Ettus
Research - USRP Hardware Driver

[email protected]:~$ dpkg -l gnuradio
No packages found matching gnuradio.

Does this mean that UHD is installed but GNU isn’t ?!! (THIS IS MY FIRST
QUESTION)
But I can run GNU from terminal , how it is written that No packages
found!!

I decided to build again GNU after installing UHD so I ran “cmake…/”
and
“make” commands … But the output of "cmake …/ " shows that gr-uhd is a
disabled component!! So I won’t find UHD blocks in GNU again. What can I
do
? (THIS IS MY SECOND QUESTION)
Here is the output of cmake … Hope that anyone can help me :slight_smile: Thanks.

Sara,

The GNURadio installation tells you at the end of that long printout
that
it skipped over gr-uhd, which is the block you are looking for. This
needs
to be installed prior to installing GNURadio, so that way GNURadio knows
of
it’s existence and can properly build against it. Since you installed
the
UHD drivers after GNURadio, you need to uninstall and re-install
GNURadio.
This should fix your problem.

Based on the information provided above, cd to ~/gnuradio/gnuradio/build
and run make uninstall followed by make and then sudo make install once
more. You need to rebuild in order to get the gr-uhd features that
weren’t
built during the first install. To make this go a little faster, i’d
recommend using the -j flag with make; I generally use the number of CPU
cores I have + 1 ( if i’m on a quad core machine, I would call ‘make -j
5’).

[email protected]:~$ dpkg -l gnuradio
No packages found matching gnuradio.

I think there are a few points of confusion here. First, you said that
you tried to build GNU Radio before installing UHD, but I’m guessing
that was a mistake since you show here that you’ve installed UHD. If
you build GNU Radio before installing UHD, you shouldn’t expect it to
know about UHD.

(Also, it’s “GNU Radio” and not just “GNU” – GNU refers to the
bigger GNU project at www.gnu.org.)

Does this mean that UHD is installed but GNU isn’t ?!! (THIS IS MY FIRST
QUESTION)
But I can run GNU from terminal , how it is written that No packages found!!

When installing a project by hand like this, you are not using the
Debian system, so there’s no reason it will be found by dpkg.

I decided to build again GNU after installing UHD so I ran “cmake…/” and
“make” commands … But the output of "cmake …/ " shows that gr-uhd is a
disabled component!! So I won’t find UHD blocks in GNU again. What can I do
? (THIS IS MY SECOND QUESTION)
Here is the output of cmake … Hope that anyone can help me :slight_smile: Thanks.

That output tells you that it didn’t find the UHD library, which could
be for many reasons.

I would recommend trying PyBOMBS to install GNU Radio instead:
