Subject: Re: [Discuss-gnuradio] unable to install gnuradio-3.4.2
Hello um, nameless!
I could imagine that a lot of tools, possibly including py_compile have changed significantly since 3.4.2 (October 2011), although you also are using a strongly outdated Ubuntu, so things might still match.
The problem is that most people on here are actively developing and using recent versions of GNU Radio with state of the art operating systems, so it might be hard for us to reproduce your issue. You should try to downgrade your python and see if that helps, that's the only idea I can think of right now. There was an issue that was fixed around mid-2011 with the automake tools that revolved around the --destdir flag, but I can't really remember; that fix should, however, be included in Ubuntu 12.04.
There's too many things that changed since 3.4.2 since then. By the way: I'm not totally clear why you actually would want to use 3.4.2; the build system is intimidating compared to the current, CMake-based one, making error search a lot more painful, and many aspects of GNU Radio should still be compliant to 3.6.5, which is the preferred version to use if you're bound to the old pre-3.7 API.
All the best,
