In the docs/exploring-gnuradio directory I have previously looked at
the

dial_tone.py file (and it runs and I understand the gist of it well
enough), but I couldn’t find any actual documentation (remember,
some of

us are brand new to Linux). So now I figure that I need to run
“make”

since there is a Makefile in the directory. Right?

However, when I try, I get the following error:

make: xmlto: Command not found

Is xmlto a program/utility that is supposed to already be on the FC5
distro, or was it something that was supposed to be installed as
part of

(or before) GR, or what? What is the best way to overcome this
hurdle?
See also http://www.gnu.org/software/gnuradio/doc/index.html for the
doxygen generated docs.

Thanks.

I’d still be very interested in knowing what is the problem with my
system and how to correct it - also in getting the documentation
installed on my system since our application will require us to work in
places without internet access.

Also, in the Exploring GNU Radio article there is the following
statement:

For a more indepth look at how the FM receiver works, please see
“Listening to FM, Step by Step.”

Where is this located?

Thanks again.

‘xmlto’ is a program for converting XML format files ‘to’ a number of
other things, including HTML. It is something that you need to install;
it should be easily available in most distributions’ binary package
archive.

You’ll need to install the package that contains xmlto. Sorry, I’m not
sure what package it’s in. If you’re using ubuntu, you should be able
to search for it using synaptic.
