Re: [Discuss-gnuradio] New to list, trying portaudio under OpenBSD

I've got my disabled list down to:
--   * gr-comedi
--   * gr-qtgui
--   * gr-uhd
--   * gr-shd
--   * gr-fcd
--   * gr-wxgui
But mostly I've just been finding dependancies and installing them.

I think I'm going to have to give up on gr-fcd because there seems to
be some thread stuff in there that OpenBSD doesn't do.  OpenBSD's
pthread.h is quite a bit different than Debian's pthread.h.  OpenBSD's
had thread issues for a while.

I found it does have Jack audio in ports so I don't need portaudio to work.

I don't think I need fcd because my dongle isn't a Funcube but I think
I do need either wxgui or qtgui to work.  I'm completely new to
Gnuradio so I'm not sure what I need.
