Hello there,

I'm facing similar issues with the uhd drivers UHD_OO3.004.002. 

I,ve downloaded and installed these drivers
uhd_003.004.002-150-unstable_Ubuntu-11.10-x86_64.deb from
http://files.ettus.com/binaries/uhd_unstable/latest/

also,

I've loaded the following images to my USRP N200 box:

uhd-images_003.004.002-release.tar.gz  

from the same URL listed above and when I try to run ./tx_samples_from_file from
../uhd/host/build/examples, I get the following error

Error: RuntimeError: 
Please update the firmware and FPGA images for your device.
See the application notes for USRP2/N-Series for instructions.
Expected FPGA compatibility number 10, but got 9:
The FPGA build is not compatible with the host code build.
Please run:
"/usr/local/share/uhd/utils/usrp_n2xx_net_burner_gui.py" \
    --fpga="/usr/local/share/uhd/images/usrp_n200_r2_fpga.bin" \
    --fw="/usr/local/share/uhd/images/usrp_n200_fw.bin" \
    --addr="192.168.10.3"

It seems like the latest uhd FPGA images available are lagging the current uhd
driver version.

Please advice,

BR,
Gerardo
