Warning: Mixed prefix install is not supported. You need to install gr-fosphor in the same prefix as your GNU Radio install. If you used build-gnuradio this will be /usr/local and this is what's used in the instructions below. If you use a packaged version of GNU Radio, it's most likely /usr and the best way is then to make a package for gr-fosphor for your distribution.

==== Known issues
77
78 1 sylvain
 * Some version of ubuntu (like 13.10) have screwed up OpenCL dev files setup and it might be required to manually specify a path to the actual OpenCL library during the cmake step ( like {{{-DOPENCL_LIBRARY=/usr/lib/nvidia-304/libOpenCL.so}}} )
79 47 horiz0n
 * When running python flowgraphs on machines with AMD graphics (fglrx driver) and UHD enabled in gr-osmosdr you may experience the following error {{{[!] CL Error (-1001, fosphor/cl.c:268): Unable to fetch platform IDs}}}. This is due to TLS sections in both, AMD OpenCL library and UHD library interfering with each other. A workaround is available through preloading the AMD OpenCL library {{{LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libamdocl64.so osmocom_fft -F}}} (path may vary). C++ flowgraphs are not affected.

== Bandwidth figures
99
100
There's a benchmark program available which allows to estimate the maximal bandwidth that can be processed with a specific GPU.
101
102
To build it:
103
104
{{{
105
cd gr-fosphor/lib/fosphor
106
make
107
}}}
108
109
Then execute it by providing a prerecorded complex float file (a couple of 100MB should be fine) in gnuradio format.

Try to leave the window to its default size if possible and watch out for the Msps numbers printed out to the console.

Submit your numbers & help us to create a GPU survey. We are especially interested in the top end and mobile graphics figures.
