I have GNU Radio installed via source on my computer, but I'd like to try the Pybombs method to see if it works. Before I do, I want to make sure I won't screw up my current install, whether its through conflicts or confusion over multiple installs or something else. Here a few questions I have:

1) If there are two installs, is it a matter of whichever one had a "sudo make install" run last as to which version is actually being used?
2) Are there any gotchas I should know about when two different GNU Radios are installed on one machine?

Hi Sylvain,

what platform are you on? (basically, libalsa should be installed via
package whenever possible, which is the case on debian, ubuntu, fedora
and centos, I thought)
Also: I kind of like the "don't install, just list" idea. However,
Pybombs would never encourage you to build stuff as root – super user
privileges are acquired as necessary through sudo.
