And to clarify farther, we do not require PyQwt. We require the QWT
library, but not the Python version of it. When I upgraded from Ubuntu
8.10 to 9.04 last night, I have been able to build and run GNU Radio
just fine out of the box. However, I have heard that both Bob and at
least one other person has had trouble with this. I would be
interested to hear how other people are getting along with this.
