No Source in GRC after installing rtl-sdr and gr-osmosdr

Hey All,

I am now trying for weeks to setup Gnuradio Companion (3.7.5) with my RTL 2832U...

I installed the RTL-SDR and the gr-osmosdr driver as described on Osmocom's Website.

"rtl_test -t" works as well as "osmocom_fft -a rtl=0 -v -f 100e6 -s 2.4e6 -g 15" so I think those drivers are properly installed.

Nevertheless no source blocks appear in Gnuradio Companion.

So does anyone know what I did wrong or what I could try? Is there a fault in the cmake process of gr-osmosdr (cmake output: http://textuploader.com/651n )?

Do I need those disabled components: Osmocom IQ Imbalance Correction, sysmocom OsmoSDR?

By the way I am using Opensuse 13.2.

It would be great if someone could help me.

Thanks in advance!

Marius

Problem solved:

Gnuradio's blocks are located in /usr/share/gnuradio/grc/blocks/

The gr-osmocom sink/source driver installs blocks to /usr/local/share/gnuradio/grc/blocks/

As solution I copied rtlsdr_source.xml, osmosdr_source.xml and osmosdr_sink.xml from /usr/local/share/gnuradio/grc/blocks/ to /usr/share/gnuradio/grc/blocks/.

Now the RTLSDR Source can be chosen in Gnuradio Companion! :grin:

Aw, now that just _sucks_. You'd think they'd discover where the grc blocks folder is on install and install it there or use some consistency.

Nice way to waste a few hours, banging your head against the wall. Good find!
