Got this error during installation of gnuradio. I also got this:

usr/share/mime/packages/gnuradio.xml:1: parser error : Start tag expected, '<' not found.

Should I be concerned? Everything else completes without errors.

  • head -n3 /usr/share/mime/packages/gnuradio.xml edit your question for the output. – nobody Jul 13 '19 at 9:05

  1. Delete /usr/share/mime/packages/gnuradio.xml.
  2. Symlink gnuradio-grc.xml to gnuradio.xml:

    sudo ln -s gnuradio-grc.xml gnuradio.xml

    Hello and welcome to AskUbuntu. Please provide some explanation, why the deleting and symlink creation is needed. – Simon Sudler Oct 14 '19 at 8:57
  • /usr/share/mime/packages/gnuradio.xml contains a single line "/usr/share/mime/packages/gnuradio-grc.xml". Sorry for my bad English. – Eko Kurniawan Oct 15 '19 at 9:28
  • Installation process failed to create a symlink. – Eko Kurniawan Oct 15 '19 at 18:32
  • Please "edit" your answer and add the explanation – Simon Sudler Oct 16 '19 at 12:53
sudo nano /usr/share/mime/packages/gnuradio.xml 

Go to the first row and make sure it begins with an <

sudo update-mime-database -V /usr/share/mime/

This updates the mime database.
