The Debian directory


#1

OK, I downloaded Gnuradio using:

svn co http://gnuradio.org/svn/gnuradio/trunk gnuradio

and under the newly created gnuradio directory I find a debian
directory. Since I’m running a debian machine is there something I need
to do with this directory or is simply running the commands:

bootstrap
configure
make
make check
make install

all that is necessary?

a quick and easy install of trunk on debian lenny here…

apt-get install subversion autoconf libtool swig python-dev fftw3-dev
libcppunit-dev libboost1.35-dev libgsl0-dev guile-1.8-dev sdcc
libusb-dev
sdcc-nf python-wxgtk2.8 python-lxml python-cheetah pkg-config
python-numpy
python-gtk2 make
svn co http://gnuradio.org/svn/gnuradio/trunk gnuradio
cd gnuradio
./configure --enable-gnuradio-core --enable-usrp --enable-gr-usrp
–enable-gr-wxgui --enable-gr-audio-osx --enable-gnuradio-examples
–enable-gr-utils --enable-gr-how-to-write-a-block --enable-omnithread
–enable-pmt --enable-guile --enable-grc --disable-gr-audio-osx
make -j4
make install

the stuff in the debian directory is needed to give your non root users
permission to access the usrp otherwise thats it…

No, the stuff in the debian directory is the debian packaging
information.

your right, my bad… not sure what i was looking at…
the ubuntu build guide in the wiki has the instructions for setting
correct
usrp/usb perms which work for debain also…

OK … I have read that web page. The problem is that all of the wiki
information seems to be relevant to GNU Radio 3.0.2 and we are now on
3.2.x. It doesn’t appear to me that any of those targets exist in the

Hmmm, I’m not really sure if there is any distro specific install
information outside of what is on the wiki. If it’s out of date then
I would guess that you need to try and figure out what the scripts do
and if they even still work.

Sorry,

Jason

No. The ‘debian’ directory in the source tree contains the packaging
scripts that we use to create the binary installation packages for
Ubuntu. The packages themselves are stored on gnuradio.org. Please
see the Wiki:

http://gnuradio.org/trac/wiki/DebianPackages

…for instructions on how to modify your package source configuration
to install these.
