Hello,

I am trying to run the /find_usrp/s and I got the following error “n/o
USRP2 found”/.
My configuration is Ubuntu 8.04 with a Netgear GA511 Gigabit PCMCIA card
with USRP2.

I successfully installed boost library with configurations as described
by other users in this mailing list.

I am not sure if there is any specific procedure to test the Ethernet
connection and USRP2?

Thanks in advance,

Catalin

Make sure that you use the right ethernet port.  If the port is not
'eth0', then you you need to add '-e port' to the find_usrps command
line.  It's possible that installing the PCMCIA card gives it a
different name.  You can determine which ethernet devices are present by
typing 'ifconfig -a'.

Thanks Johnathan,

1. I am using the right port. With the command: /find_usrps –e eth4.

2. However, I just downloaded the SD card Firmware images for USRP2 from
*http*://*gnuradio*.*org*/releases/usrp2-bin/trunk
<http://gnuradio.org/releases/usrp2-bin/trunk> just released (earlier I
was using default firmware from 09/22/08). I downloaded all files there
and tried to boot my USRP2. This time I am not seeing any green lights
while or after booting. Please let me know if firmware could make any
difference. I am using recent svn (downloaded a week ago).

Please advise.



Thank you,

Those images are designed to be used with GNU Radio trunk revision r9879
or newer, which was from 2 days ago, so you'll need to upgrade your host
software.  I assume you used u2_flash_tool properly to write the two
images to the SD card.

Thanks again. Now I have two options whether to get current trunk
revision or use u2_flash_tool to write two images.

I tried to use this command but not successful in writing the images to
SD card.

sudo u2_flash_tool --dev=/dev/sdb -t s/w usrp2/firmware/txrx.bin -w (SD
card mounted as /dev/sdb in my machine).

I am using this command right? what about the second image.

Thank you,

Just to be clear:  you'll need to upgrade to the current trunk version
of GNU Radio, *and*, use u2_flash_tool to write the downloadable images
onto the SD card.

The command is correct, but you'll need to run it from the directory
that u2_flash_tool is in, and reference it with ./u2_flash_tool.  We
don't install this script on the path.

(from usrp2/firmware directory):

$ sudo ./u2_flash_tool --dev=/dev/sdb -t s/w txrx.bin -w

$ sudo ./u2_flash_tool --dev=/dev/sdb -t fpga u2_rev3.bin -w

For the above to work, you'll need to put the full path to wherever you
downloaded the .bin files.
