Hey George,

I remember when I had the same exact problem as you, trying to install gnuradio 
on a virtual machine for the convenience
(had to switch to FC5 to make sure GNU radio on VMware was possible, and surely 
it was) until I finally decided to use a native system instead (as you might 
know the limitation that a virtual machine imposes on gnuradio in general just 
make it not worth it).

As Cameron has said in the parent posts, to install gnuradio the easy way on a 
fresh installation of FC8 (instead of going through and making it)
is to do:

$ yum install gnuradio
$ yum install gnuradio-examples

that worked for me. The path where it installed the examples for me was:


and if you try out "audio/dial_tone.py", it should work.
now the next step - at least for me - was to get the USRP board to communicate 
with GNU radio so for example
"usrp/usrp_wfm_rcv.py" would work, and for that I'm waiting for Cameron's 
answer again.

hope that helped.
