FATAL: [bladeRF source] Failed to open bladeRF device *:instance=0

Post by boyerkg » Wed Jan 30, 2019 10:40 am

After realizing that osmocom source was not finding the bladerf=0 instance, I trapped the real error:

FATAL: [bladeRF source] Failed to open bladeRF device *:instance=0

Does anyone know why osmocom source cannot find the sdr bladerf?

bladeRF-cli runs fine. It sees the bladerf sdr, and I can read the configuration.

I get the same error when I run osmocom_fft. I built gnuradio on another machine with the latest version of gnuradio (3.7.13.4), and it has the same problem.

Regards,

Keith
