I've been trying to install gnuradio on Ubuntu via PyBOMBS but it fails on some thrift dependency with the following error:

Linking CXX executable gr_runtime_test undefined reference to `apache::thrift::async::TConcurrentClientSyncInfo::getPending(std::__cxx11::basic_string<char, std::char_traits<char>, std::allocator<char> >&, apache::thrift::protocol::TMessageType&, int&)' undefined reference to `apache::thrift::async::TConcurrentClientSyncInfo::updatePending(std::__cxx11::basic_string<char, std::char_traits<char>, std::allocator<char> > const&, apache::thrift::protocol::TMessageType, int)'

The thing is that running pybombs -p default -vvv install gnuradio pulls apache-thrift as a dependency so I'm not sure what am I missing?

" undefined reference to `apache::thrift::async::TConcurrentClientSyncInfo::getPending(std::__cxx11::basic_string<char, std::char_traits, std::allocator >&, apache::thrift::protocol::TMessageType&, int&)'"

Smells like a missing -lthrift, though I'm not sure why. Can you try get the actual gcc command that failed?

I've tried again today on a fresh Ubuntu Mate 15.10 x64 and it worked fine. Probably something was messed up with my previous Ubuntu installation. Good thing that I could get rid of it and start from a fresh distro.

I was experiencing this issue on a machine that was upgraded from Ubuntu 14.04 (trusty) to 16.04 (xenial) and whose GR installation had gotten quite stale.


  1. Update Apache Thrift manually

     pybombs update apache-thrift
  2. Reload my prefix

     source ~/prefix/
  3. Then continue building gnuradio

     cd ~/prefix/src/gnuradio/build
     make -j4
