Another newbie question

Hi all

I am using Ubuntu 9.04 and, after some trial and error, installed
gnuradio
and grc per the instructions shown in “Debian Package Repository for GNU
Radio”

Do I get gnuradio up and running by building it from scratch using grc
or do
I have to do the following:

$ ./bootstrap
$ ./configure
$ make
$ make check
$ sudo make install

I am concerned that if I do the ./bootstrap, etc, I am going to be
creating
problems. (I have re-installed Ubunu several times in order to clean up
the
problems I had created by my trial and error method of learning.)

I have spent several hours trying to find info on the web and gnuradio
web
site but haven’t been able to find something that is simple enough for
me to
follow.

I am a user of HPSDR and have PowerSDR up and running, but gnuradio
appears
not to be as simple to install and run.

Thanks for your help

  1. make sure to run the apt-get install command under the jaunty section
    http://gnuradio.org/trac/wiki/UbuntuInstall

  2. now you can run these commands (you may need to install git)

git clone http://gnuradio.org/git/gnuradio.git
cd gnuradio
./bootstrap
./configure
make
sudo make install

  1. things probably work now, if they dont, see some of that post install
    stuff on the ubuntuinstall page

you get grc up and running by building gnuradio, not the other way
around

you cant really do any damage to your system until the make install
part, and even then, all the installed files are encapsulated in a few
folders, and you can always run sudo make uninstall
