USRP on Fedora 6 runtime error


#1

Hi

I am using Fedora 6, on HP Pavilion 5000 laptop, with USB 2.0, a new
USRP
board (tested at Jan 2007) and GNUradio 3.0 installed without any
problem.

The board is seen as USB 2.0 device (when I used usbview).

Now, Whenever I try to run any example in the gunradio-examples
directory i
get the following error message

##############################################################################
[root@localhost usrp]# ./test_counting.py

usrp: failed to load fpga bitstream
/usr/share/usrp/rev4/std_2rxhb_2tx.rbf.

Traceback (most recent call last):

return _usrp1.source_s(*args)

I suggest that you follow the BuildGuide on the wiki, and pay
particular attention to the part about setting up the udev rule.
Running as root is not generally recommended.

http://gnuradio.org/trac/wiki/BuildGuide
http://gnuradio.org/trac/wiki/FC5Install
http://gnuradio.org/trac/wiki/UdevConfig

Also, why 3.0? 3.0.3 is the current stable release
