installed GNUradio, GRC and UHD on the E100. I have run the examples for the UHD and it is working without any problem. From the GNUradio examples, When I tried running the dial_tone.py, I get the following error:

The pulseaudio daemon may have grabbed the sound driver. Try "killall -9 pulseaudio" and try the test again.
I need to figure out why it works for some people and not others.
