Install scripts for distributions

Debian 8 (Jessie)

The install script for debian Wheezy will be improved for Jessie, it is not advisable to try it at the moment.

In Jessie, it is not necessary to install ZeroMQ from source, it is preferrable to use the packages

  • libzmq3
  • libzmq3-dev

Boost has also been updated from 1.49 to 1.55, but that should have no impact.

mplayer has been replaced by mplayer2, which requires some testing. We have noticed some regressions regarding the resampler functionalty.

Many packages in the dependencies list might have changed names or versions.

Debian 7 (Wheezy)

There is one installer script in development for Debian wheezy. It installs

  • uhd (from debian packages)
  • tons of dependencies and build tools (debian packages)
  • ZeroMQ (from source) and its C++ bindings
  • KA9Q libfec (from github source)
  • ODR-DabMux (from github source)
  • ODR-DabMod (from github source)
  • Fdk-aac-dabplus (from github source)
  • the scripts and examples from mmbtools-aux

It doesn't install gnuradio, maybe that would be nice too...

It requires sudo to be installed, and must be executed as a regular user (not root).

The script is maintained in the mmbtools-aux repository, and is here: Download is easily possible using


Please make sure you understand what this script is doing before executing it!

Comments/suggestions are welcome (CRC-mmbTools google group -or- GitHub issues)

The script has been tested on:

$ lsb_release  -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Debian
Description:    Debian GNU/Linux 7.3 (wheezy)
Release:        7.3
Codename:       wheezy

Ubuntu 12.04

The Debian script can be adapted to run on ubuntu by removing the build-dep for gnuradio and uhd, and removing the installation of uhd, but it is necessary to install gnuradio with uhd from separate sources before using the script.
