1 Introduction

The Packaging project maintains packages (software/firmware) of hardware drivers and SDR frameworks such as GNU Radio, along with key dependencies.

2 Repositories

2.1 Ubuntu

Ubuntu packages are available for SDR hardware drivers and GNU Radio through the MyriadRF launchpad team site.

Quick instructions, add the following PPAs to your system:

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:bladerf/bladerf
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ettusresearch/uhd
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:myriadrf/drivers
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:myriadrf/gnuradio
sudo apt-get update

Find the desired software below and run its relevant apt-get commands:

2.1.1 Drivers PPA

The drivers PPA hosts packages for most SDR support drivers.

  • We build drivers for all supported Ubuntu releases: precise, trusty, utopic, vivid, wily
  • Supported hardware architectures: armhf, i386, and amd64

2.1.2 Drivers Snapshots PPA

The snapshots drivers PPA hosts additional SDR drivers that are not yet formally released.

  • We build drivers for all supported Ubuntu releases: precise, trusty, utopic, vivid, wily
  • Supported hardware architectures: armhf, i386, and amd64

Nothing here to list yet...

2.1.3 GNU Radio PPA

The GNU Radio PPA hosts packages for GNU Radio and several popular GNU Radio packages

  • We build pakages for all supported Ubuntu releases: precise, trusty, utopic, vivid, wily
  • Supported hardware architectures: i386 and amd64.
    • Unfortunately, GNU Radio's SWIG-based build system is too resource intensive for launchpad's QEMU based ARM build farm.
