#43685 closed defect (worksforme)

gnuradio or grc command not found

Reported by: briansullivan2@… Owned by: michaelld (Michael Dickens)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.2.1
Keywords: Cc: cooljeanius (Eric Gallager)
Port: gnuradio, gr-osmosdr

Description (last modified by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt))

I had GQRX installed and working fine as well GNU Radio Companion, both installed from a .pkg(not using Macports) for a while I wanted to use the Osmosdr block in Gunuradio Companion and the only way to do this was via macports. I installed the gr-osmosdr port. Foolishly I made some other change regarding what I think was the environmental variables according to the instructions before conforming the new port installed and worked okay.

Before the macports install all I need to do to open GNURadio Companion was to type grc in terminal. Now I get "command not found" I don't know what changes I made exactly but I can tell you that env command gives me:


It's not the same as what the example in the instructions show, but I'm a bit of a NOOB and not sure how to interoperate this. This is what I have done so far to try to remedy the problem: install GNU Radio via macports, thinking that the gr-osomsdr port could not "talk" to GNU stuff installed via binary (osx traditional method) THEN uninstalled GQRX by dragging to the trash. THEN I tried uninstalling and reinstalling gnu radio with some different variants.

have tried this on three different macs iMac os x 10.7.5 MBP 10.9.2 and an MBA os x10.6.8(this last one was an effort on a clean os without Macports or gnu prior)

Your guidance is much appreciated.

I'm really not sure what you're asking for here. That said, a while back you would type "grc" to get the GNU Radio Companion; maybe that's the binary executable version you had installed (somehow). That changed somewhere in 3.6 or thereabouts, to "gnuradio-companion". If you installed GNU Radio via MacPorts, then any of those ports will install "gnuradio-companion", not "grc". If this is not what you were asking for, then please email me directly "<michael.dickens@…>" and I'll help you through your issues; this does not seem to be a MacPorts issue.

Also, if the binary were still called just grc, it would probably conflict with the grc port, which provides a different grc executable that is already experiencing a conflict with another port: #40143

Interesting. I don't remember why "grc" was renamed, but a conflict with another executable seems like a very likely reason. "gnuradio-companion" is pretty unique.
