Is there a way for a new user to get uhd installed from the package manager though? A lot of people want to dive right into gnu radio with hardware, doing simple things like spectrum analysis. I'm not aware of a way of getting the uhd + gnuradio setup running that's easier then pybombs. I very well could be wrong here.On Wed, Dec 23, 2015 at 10:31 AM, Tim O'Shea <address@hidden> wrote:Most new users should be installing gnu radio binaries via their os package manager repos or ppa. Pybombs should be used for 1. Helping get up to date oot modules set up and deployed ( like pip ) and 2. Helping developers set up their development environment.So I'm not sure installer is the right idea to impart on new users at allOn Wed, Dec 23, 2015, 1:23 PM Richard Bell <address@hidden> wrote:I'd like to throw in another point from an entry level perspective. Those people who might need pybombs most, are those who need names that tell them what it's for the most. Even if it is incorrect to call pybombs an installer, it would really help the entry level folks (which I would claim without support is the largest population of the community at any given time) understand what it's for and how they should use it. I think we all have the experience of learning new tools and running into tool names, which even though the description is spot on for what its for, at the time carried zero value for the new guy using it (thinking mostly about Xilinx tool names here).With that said, I think it would be good for the community to use the word installer in the tool that makes gnuradio and uhd really easy to install, and is what the vast majority of people I'm guessing would use it for._______________________________________________On Wed, Dec 23, 2015 at 10:02 AM, Martin Braun <address@hidden> wrote:On 23.12.2015 09:28, Stefan Wunsch wrote:

'grab' is also a very common english verb, so I think people would be
able to distinguish. It also sounds like 'crab' if you like :)
