I just received a new USRP & WBX board for a research project I am
on. I have installed GNURadio from source from the tar package:
http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gnuradio/gnuradio-3.3.0.tar.gz, on Ubuntu 10.04,
I am having problems connecting/finding the USRP:
running “usrp_probe” or “usrper get_hash0” result in “usrp: failed to
running “sudo usrp_probe” results in “ImportError: cannot import name
running “sudo usrper get_hash0” results in “found unconfigured usrp;
I have seen mention that the blinking light on the motherboard is
of some state (I have not been able to locate documentation stating
this…can someone point me to this?) the light on my motherboard is
currently blinking at bout 2-3Hz, which I think is supposed to mean it
good firmware loaded.
I successfully ran usrp_probe (with sudo if I recall correctly) last
and it successfully connected and found the wbx daughterboard.
Other than powering down the USRP overnight I’m not sure what or if I
I can use gnuradio-companion and run some basic tutorial programs that
interface with the usrp.
I have tried reinstalling GNURadio, between versions 3.3.0 and 3.2
times, neither have connected to the usrp.
PYTHONPATH = /usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages
“ls -lR /dev/bus/usb | grep usrp” = “crw-rw---- 1 root usrp 189,
2010-10-12 20:14 005”
at some point I noticed this, I have been unable to reproduce it though
“dmesg” = [ 2117.132151] usb 1-1: usbfs: USBDEVFS_CONTROL failed cmd
rqt 64 rq 1 len 0 ret -110
Plugging in USRP usb cable:
dmesg output =
[14316.247647] usb 1-1: USB disconnect, address 6
[14326.592048] usb 1-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and
[14326.725176] usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
I’m not sure what the problem is now… is it a configuration problem
GNURadio, a problem with the USB interface/driver, or is there actually
issue with the USRP firmware?
I’m hesitant to think it is a firmware problem, because I don’t think
is any way I could have modified the firmware…
Thanks for your help,
