I upgraded my box to FC5, and have been working on getting GNUradio/usrp
built.  I ran into a problem building SDCC;  I have gotten the 4/21/2006
snapshot to build, but the official 2.5.0 release will not build as
default.
I'll continue providing updates on progress in building on FC5.

More notes:
Fedora Extras 5 now includes wxPython 2.6.3.2 and all its requirements.
So on
a stock FC5 install, a simple 'yum install wxPython-devel' will get you
all
you need to compile the wxgui portions (as it autodeps wxPython, wxGTK,
and
friends).

Cppunit and boost too.  SWIG is at 1.3.24.

USRP is built from latest svn trunk, and loads firmware (LED blink rate
slows
down, too).

Building gnuradio-core and friends now.

gnuradio-core built and installed, passing its test suite.
ditto gr-audio-alsa, gr-audio-oss, gr-usrp, gr-wxgui, gnuradio-examples,
gr-gsm-fr-vocoder, gr-howto-write-a-block.

Looks like it worked so far.  Let's see....
Aha, works.
I have a usrp_wfm_rx up with my TVRX listening to Channel 21's audio.
Sounds
good.

All modules are current CVS (or SVN in the case of USRP).

Oh, this was done as root (I know, shame on me...)

This is by far the easiest GNUradio build I've yet seen (including
having to
track down the SDCC version that would easily compile).  Everything
except
SDCC that GNUradio requires is included already in either Fedora Core 5
or
Fedora Extras 5 (including livna.org as a FE5 adjunct).

This means an RPM dist of GNUradio for FC5/FE5 would not be too hard,
and
might even be includable in FE5.

I should probably do a tarball build to check that, though.  Of course,
the
tarballs lag CVS, and once you're on the CVS slope it's hard to go
back... ;-)

Good to know.

All the machines that "surround" my GnuRadio machine are FC5, and I've
been waiting to upgrade
  the FC3 machine that I run GnuRadio on...

Anyone know how disasterous doing an *upgrade* to FC5 is from FC3?

When I installed on FC5, I found that everything was available as an RPM
from Fedora Core 5 or Fedora Extras 5 (and I didn't need livna), with
the exception of:

	sdcc
	the latest swig  (1.3.24 is included, I upgraded that with a tarball,
but I'm not sure if that was even necessary)

When I built the released sdcc, 2.5.0, it built with absolutely no
problems for me.  Does it die for you in the ./configure stage?
