USRP connected during gnuradio installation


#1

Hi,

Would like to check, if the USRP is needed to be connected to the laptop
during the installation of gnuradio on fedora 9?

Regards,

Hi,

When I installed gnuradio, I didn’t have a usrp, but I followed the
instructions in the wiki, and when I plugged it in it worked… I guess
the short answer is: no. =)

Hope it works out for you!

No, like you don’t need a USB stick to install a USB storage driver.
GNU Radio does not necessarily need an USRP, although it has lot of code
written especially for the USRP.
In fact you don’t even need a RF interface to do signal processing, and
you can use a lots of different hardware for input and output, including
your soundcard and hardware supported by Comedi[1]
