If you have a osx 10.5 (leopard) you can try to install gnuradio from macports
sudo port install gnuradio

The MacPorts portfiles for GNU Radio (everything that can be compiled on OSX except possibly qtgui) were added at the end of last week, and reflect the 3.2 release. I'll update them to 3.2.2 "sometime real soon now" -- not difficult, just finding the 20 solid minutes to do it & test the changes.

Please note that the USRP (and related) port will not yet install using just MacPorts because they changed the way libusb-legacy 0.1.12 is installed (grrr). Hopefully the MacPorts folks will come to some sense of recognition that being able to transparently switch between libusb-compat and libusb-legacy would be -a good thing- (i.e., not having to change the dependent source code in any way), and update those (respective) portfile to allow only one of them to be installed at any given time and then any port requiring LIBUSB (not 1.0) would still work correctly via either one being installed. I'm still arguing the case to them ...

This restriction on libusb filenames can easily be overcome either by setting the USB environment variables, or changing the usrp_libusb.m4 file to check for both "libusb.pc" and "libusb-legacy.pc". Again, I'll get to this change "real soon now". In the mean time, you can always install LIBUSB 0.1.12 from source in the usual way & that will work.

I'll send an update when these issues are fixed in the MacPorts release. - MLD
