Clone and install srsLTE. We tested it using the version 18.3.1, for this reason we encourage you to download this version:

git clone --branch release_18_03_1 --single-branch
cd srsLTE
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ../
make test

If you have compiled everything and all the tests were successfully passed, you will find all the srsLTE executables in srsLTE/build

In addition, it is needed to copy the eNodeB and UE configurations files:

cd ..
cp srsenb/enb.conf.example build/srsenb/src/enb.conf
cp srsenb/rr.conf.example build/srsenb/src/rr.conf
cp srsenb/sib.conf.example build/srsenb/src/sib.conf
cp srsenb/drb.conf.example build/srsenb/src/drb.conf
cp srsue/ue.conf.example build/srsue/src/ue.conf
