You can run GNU Radio using the new version of the hierarchical blocks. The example in gnuradio-examples/python/hier/usrp/usrp_siggen.py runs on PS3 as is. The reason is due to more of the scheduling being handled in C++ and very minimal work in Python. I tracked down the problem in the Python scheduler where, for some reason, the memory addresses of the blocks get corrupted. I didn't go any further to figure out why, though.

Of course, it just runs on the PPE element, and there is still plenty of work to be done to make real use of the CELL processor properly.

So far I have been unable to get the python to work properly on any Power PC running Linux. It runs on Mac OSX but not PPC. For example,

make check

fails in a segmentation error in the base routine that runs the actual checks.

It is no trouble at all to get GnuRadio to make and install on the PS3 running FC6. It took me about 3 hours. It is just that nothing runs after that.

Eric Blossom is going to begin work on getting GnuRadio to run on the Cell processor after he returns from vacation later this month. I am certain he will resolve this issue early in the process.

I see that you can buy a PS3 now with YDL linux installed. (http://www.terrasoftsolutions.com/products/sony/) How are the efforts to get gnu radio running on it going?

I don't play video games but I'm seriously considering buying to get the bluray player, Would be great if I can run gnuradio too.
