As a follow up, I just finished the PyBOMBS install stream with UHD and Gnu Radio installed following these instructions:


That is a pretty painless process for the most part.

The only unexpected thing that happened to me is that when I run gnuradio-companion at the end of the install process, I get an error in the command line that reads:

Error: Program requires scipy (see: www.scipy.org)
This line repeated 13 times

Does anyone know if I should act on this? If so can you recommend how.

I just installed gnuradio using PyBombs on an Ubuntu 14.04 machine and it worked fine except for two things. First, I had to manually install via apt-get the boost library. I am not sure why but PyBombs kept bombing out with an error. Then, after installation, I had to run ./pybombs env to setup the environmental variables properly. This was probably my fault for running app_store.py under sudo. Anyway, it is working fine now.

Hello Everyone,

I hate asking questions like this, but I need help installing GNU Radio. The objective is to have GNU Radio and UHD installed on Ubuntu 14.04 so I can use it with my USRP N210. The problem I have is this:

1) I don't like using the ettus easy install for 'UHD+GNU Radio' because their GNU Radio is usually several versions behind the most up to date version. I want control of what version I use.

2) I can't use apt-get install gnuradio because I need to install UHD first and apt-get install also installs a very old version of gnuradio.

What's left for me? Do I have to compile source code and go that route? I'm far from being a professional programmer, so I do not trust myself getting that done correctly. I remember reading something about a PyBombs install process related to this I think. Is that an option?
