Osmocom GSM

Revision as of 20:43, 28 November 2016 by AndrewBack (Talk | contribs)

This page details how to build an Osmocom GSM Network-in-the-Box (NITB) configuration that supports LimeSDR.

1 Base dependencies

1.1 Packaged

Packaged dependencies can be installed with:

$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:george-edison55/cmake-3.x
$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:myriadrf/drivers

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install build-essential git cmake python-mako libsqlite3-dev libboost-all-dev libmnl-dev libssl-dev libpcap-dev libi2c-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev libsoapysdr-dev autoconf libtool libpcsclite-dev libortp-dev libdbi-dev libdbd-sqlite3

1.2 Lime Suite

At the present time Lime Suite should be built from source, instead of using packages. See the wiki page for details.

1.3 UHD

At the present time UHD should be built from source, instead of using packages.

$ git clone https://github.com/EttusResearch/uhd
$ cd uhd/host
$ git checkout maint
$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ cmake ../
$ make
$ sudo make install
$ sudo ldconfig

1.4 SoapyUHD

$ git clone https://github.com/pothosware/SoapyUHD
$ cd SoapyUHD
$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ cmake ..
$ make
$ sudo make install
$ sudo ldconfig

2 Osmocom software

2.1 OpenBSC, OsmoBTS & dependencies

Tested commit: 66af97ce0760c0c015b2bc5c8c3290345571b122

$ git clone https://github.com/fairwaves/osmo-combo
$ cd osmo-combo
$ git submodule init
$ git submodule update
$ ./apply_patches.sh static-build
$ sudo make

2.2 OsmoTRX

Tested commit: d22657a26d22d265cfeb57636a2fbe9c3e9c0f16

$ git clone https://github.com/myriadrf/osmo-trx
$ cd osmo-trx
$ autoreconf -i
$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo make install

Note:

  1. that the default branch, myriadrf/limesdr, is the one that should be used and not master or any of the others;
  2. LimeSDR support will eventually be merged upstream, following which it is planned to maintain this via the Osmocom repository and to delete this fork;
