I see.

It perfectly makes sense to me.

The only point I'd make here is that it could be useful to have a
troubleshooting section with the most common errors given back by
uhd_usrp_probe command.

Something like:

"Expected protocol compatibility x, but got y" --> update FPGA images
to the correct version

"Expected module version z, got y" --> update kernel modules (i.e.
opkg update/upgrade should fix that).

It's just a rough idea, it might save the list from some noisy traffic
(like mine ;-) ) in the future.

Yes, everything works properly, now.

Thanks again,
