Description Vasil Velichkov 2021-05-03 14:20:36 UTC
A new version 3.8.3.0 is available since 2021-03-17. It includes various fixes documented in https://github.com/gnuradio/gnuradio/blob/v3.8.3.0/CHANGELOG.md#3830---2021-03-17

Would it be possible to update this version in Fedora 33?

Comment 1 Jaroslav Škarvada 2021-05-03 14:29:05 UTC
I will check. It was usually quite painful process requiring rebuild of all dependent packages. Now with the proper sonames in 3.8, it could be enough to just update the gnuradio.

Comment 2 Vasil Velichkov 2021-05-03 14:36:20 UTC
Hi Jaroslav,

Thanks for looking into this. Let me know if you need any help updating or testing the new builds. I have experience building rpm packages but I'm not member of the packager group.

Comment 3 Jaroslav Škarvada 2021-05-03 20:39:16 UTC
It requires volk. It is really bad that they split the package in minor release. It would require adding standalone volk to f33. The volk has some issues with secondary arches. I am afraid we shouldn't do this in the stable release.

Comment 4 Marcus Müller 2021-05-03 21:45:53 UTC
For the 3.8.x.y series, VOLK can still be built (and by default, is still built) in-tree.

We changed that behaviour for 3.9.0.0, where VOLK becomes an external dependency. 

For all practical purposes, 3.7.0, 3.8.0.0, 3.9.0.0 are major releases (changing dependencies and APIs), whereas the third digit (e.g. 3.8.2.0->3.8.3.0) signifies ABI breakage, but not fundamental dependency (or API) changes.

Hi Marcus,

> For the 3.8.x.y series, VOLK can still be built (and by default, is still built) in-tree.

There is no gnuradio 3.8.3.0 source tarball in [1] and the archive you can download from github[2] does not contains the VOLK sources. Can we get a source archive with bundled VOLK like for the previous releases?

Comment 6 Jaroslav Škarvada 2021-05-03 23:40:56 UTC
Yep, I used the github tag. If upstream could provide the 3.8 sources with the volk, I think there shouldn't be problem to update.
