GNU Radio itself is Linux-agnostic, in that the autotools build system
will support pretty much any Linux that has the prerequisites

In practice, I think the developers of GNU Radio itself use either
Fedora Core or Ubuntu.  I maintain binary package installations for
Ubuntu, as that is my primary development platform.  Thus, it is often
easiest for new GNU Radio users to start with Ubuntu.

It would certainly be most welcome for someone to step up and develop
(and maintain) current RPM-based packages for GNU Radio.
