Hi George,

in that case, you'll have to install gr-osmosdr [1].
To use your hackRF, you'll also need libhackrf [err.. google.].
you can now take the following routes:

a) install gnuradio-dev from ubuntu,
download, build and install libhackrf (installing all tools and
development libraries necessary yourself),
then download, build and install gr-osmosdr against the Ubuntu GNU
Radio package


b) uninstall Ubuntu's gnuradio package (!), download pyBOMBS[2], and
./pybombs install gr-osmosdr
which should automagically download, build (if no suitable binary
package is available) and install all the necessary components.
