Install scripts for distributions

Debian 8 (Jessie)

The install script for debian Wheezy will be improved for Jessie.

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.

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.
