Building OsmoTRX for LimeSDR from source (using Ubuntu 16.04)

Binary Packages

Osmocom provides binary packages for several flavors of Debian and Ubuntu GNU/Linux on a variety of architectures (i586, x86_64, armhf, armv7l). Unless you are a software developer interested in developing on Osmocom, it is recommended you use those packages instead of building from source.

For more details see Binary_Packages

# Example: For UHD 3.10.000.000: 
  git checkout release_003_010_000_000 (get the latest if fine)

cd host
mkdir build
cd build 
cmake ../
make
sudo make install
sudo ldconfig

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib

try run command to find LimeSDR :

uhd_find_devices

Install SoapySDR and SoapyUHD

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

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

Now build osmo-trx

mkdir osmo
cd osmo
git clone https://github.com/osmocom/libsomocore
cd libsomocore
autoreconf -fi
./configure
make -j5
sudo make install
sudo ldconfig

mkdir osmo
cd osmo
git clone https://github.com/osmocom/osmo-trx
cd osmo-trx
autoreconf -fi
./configure
make -j5
