[USRP-users] Problem when install UHD driver for USRP B210

Hi Tran Phi,

it's absolutely essential that you uninstall all UHD packages coming
directly from Ubuntu, as these old versions will conflict with the new

sudo apt-get remove uhd-host

Note that all the packages that Ubuntu ships (e.g. GNU Radio) that rely
on UHD will be removed -- there's no way around that, because they were
built using Ubuntu's prehistoric version, and can't work with the
current UHD. You will need to rebuild these packages from source code

Luckily, there's help with that. So after you've installed UHD from the
Ettus repositories, go to http://pybombs.info and follow the
instructions there to get GNU Radio and related software.

Best regards,
