I compiled GNURadio using the build script yesterday. In a previous
version of GNURadio, I believe that the Tagged File Sink was
displayed in GNURadio Companion under sinks. I couldn't find it
there so I search the build folder as well as my filesystem to find
that I had no gr_tagged_file_sink.xml . I'm not sure if this is an
error pertaining only to my installation or if this was removed from
GNURadio at some point. I do have .cc .o .h ad .i files for
gr_tagged_file_sink. I found the xml file here
and copied it (as root) to /usr/local/share/gnuradio/grc/blocks. It
still isn't showing up in GRC though. Any idea what I need to do to
get this block showing in GRC? Thanks!

I actually posted about the warning a little while ago. This was the
response from Tom:
That was due to me forgetting to "git add" the file when we pushed the
rest. I actually noticed this just yesterday but hadn't been able to
do anything about until I got off the plane just now.
The current versions of master and next should have this fixed.
I re ran the build-gnuradio script and it solved the warning, but I do
not know about the tagged_file_sink error. Maybe it will reinstall the
tagged_file_sink for you. Re-running the script creates extra folders
though. For example, uhd.20120726103430 looks like a copy made at
2012/07/26. Do you know if we can delete these extra folders?
Looks like the Tagged FIle SInk was not fixed in the new update. I'm fairly certain that those new folders that appeared are the updated git pulls. The hold roughly the same content as the other folders. I guess if you re-run the script in the same directory, it will make a new folder for the updated gits. Gnuradio, uhd, osmosdr, and rtl all had new folders for me but uhd and grextras must not have updated. Technically you can delete all of these files after install. I like to keep a set around so that I can search the source though. You don't need both copies - delete the old ones. Any way I can get Tagged FIle Sink working manually?
