I’m writing to describe an issue, and to provide a workaround, related
gnuradio with boost 1.52.
I built the current gnuradio repo from source on Mac OSX 10.6.8
dependencies using MacPorts). The build went fine, but only 21% of the
tests were passed with “make test”. The error was always the same (here
the verbose output is for qa_max):
line 69, in
46: gr_unittest.run(test_max, “test_max.xml”)
[… more tracebacks…]
line 93, in run
46: for test in self:
46: RuntimeError: boost thread: thread not joinable: Invalid argument
The workaround: Downgrade to boost 1.51. All tests passed after the
downgrade (except for one, unrelated to this issue).
Instructions to use macports to get old ports are available here:
Note: I tried both python 2.6 and 2.7, since it appears, on its face, to
a python error. The output above comes from python 2.7. Python 2.6
even more frequently.
