Re: USRP testing plesae help

You may have a version mismatch between the installed python modules in
lib and installed python scripts in bin. Either that, or its a very old
bug. Whatever the case, I recommend you nuke your gr install(s) and grab
a recent release.

First of all bundle of thanks. Last post did help me alot.
I installed a fresh gnruadio 3.4.0. Connected the USRP1 and usrp_probe
ran
successfully.
Both the boards were detected. :slight_smile:

When I tried to connect DBSRX2 to RXB or RXA the it wasn’t detected. I
mean
when I ran usrp_probe the model shown was ‘unkown’ and frequency range
was
from -9000000.0 to 9.000000. Any help what I need to do in order to
check
the DBSRX2 ?

  1. Also I got N210. How can I test it. Please help.

Waiting for a quick response as I am worried. Any help in this regards
is highly appreciated.

What do you want to test? If you want connectivity, install UHD and the
command uhd_usrp_probe will tell you all the USRP devices connected to
your pc: http://code.ettus.com/redmine/ettus/projects/uhd/wiki

If you want to test signal integrity, configure gnuradio with gr-uhd
support. There is a very basic signal generator and analyzer display
that comes with the component. uhd_siggen_gui.py uhd_fft.py I believe.
Or make a quick flowgraph in gnuradio-companion :slight_smile:

I downloaded UHD from link above, then I did following.
cd UHD.
cd host
mkdir build
cd build
cmake …/
make
make install
ldconfig

But then when I ran uhd_find_devices I got following output:
“Ignoring discovered device RuntimeError: Expected protocol
compatibility
number 9, but got 7: The firware build is not compatible with the host
code
build.
No UHD Devices Found”
Lights D and F are on the N210. No other lights.
Another question what is minimum speed required for LAN(Etherenet)
interface on PC ? 100Mbps or 1000Mbps ?

You can install in userspace but then you need to be sure PYTHONPATH
and maybe LD_LIBRARY_PATH are pointing to your install. Most users
do ‘sudo make install’ to install in /usr/local.

ldconfig will not find things in userspace and elf-ld can’t figure out
that a program in /something/bin might have libraries in /something/lib.

After you do cmake, the Makefile should be able to clean out old
stuff with ‘make uninstall’ and ‘make clean’ before the new make and
sudo make install.

DBSRX2 is only supported under UHD, not under the “classic” drivers. If
you run:

uhd_usrp_probe --args “type=usrp1”

You’ll find that it can cope with the DBSRX2 just fine. Since you’re a
new user of this gear, without any
necessity of backwards compatibility with older software, you should
be using UHD exclusively.

But then when I ran uhd_find_devices I got following output:
“Ignoring discovered device RuntimeError: Expected protocol
compatibility number 9, but got 7: The firware build is not compatible

The ethernet-connected devices (USRP2, N2XX) require 1 GiGe–they won’t
work at any other rate.

Follow the instructions here to update your N2XX firmware:

http://files.ettus.com/uhd_docs/manual/html/usrp2.html#load-the-images-onto-the-on-board-flash-usrp-n-series-only

If you used the “build-gnuradio” script to build your Gnu Radio + UHD
installation, it will also have downloaded
the very latest master firmware, and placed it in
/usr/local/share/uhd/images.

You might also look at the overall UHD documentation here:

http://code.ettus.com/redmine/ettus/projects/uhd/wiki#Documentation

Thanks for the response, I did sudo make and sudo make install when I
was
installing the UHD. My UHD folder is in my home directory. Sorry, I am
not
getting you with your last post because I am not very good at Linux. Any
help further is highly appreciated.

Smith
