I've recently been trying to install the Gnu Radio system on a new
machine using the build-gnuradio script. The script is failing with an
error in the gr-osmocom build phase, and I've been able to verify this
with a separate attempt to build.
In rtl_source_c.cc, line 224, the build fails with:
error: 'rtlsdr_set_bias_tee' was not declared in this scope
ret = rtlsdr_set_bias_tee(_dev, bias_tee);
It appears that changes were merged into the tree on about June 11 to
add bias tee support, and that this error results from that change set.
I'm able to get a successful build if I comment out those few lines of
code, but when I try to run an application (e.g., osmocom_fft), upon
exit there is a bunch of traceback output and a lengthy memory map
printed. I'm no debugging expert, but I can tell that the exact error
and address change on different runs, but always appear to be related to
a memory map or corrupted list.
I don't know if anyone else has seen either the build issue, or the
traceback issue, so thought I should report it here.
FWIW, I'm building on a fresh install of Linux Mint 18.1 using the
latest version of the build-gnuradio script on a Lenovo M900 i7-6700T
system. I've used the build-gnuradio script on several other systems in
the past without encountering this issue. If you need any further info,
I'm happy to provide it.
