Bootable CD with Gnuradio/GRC?

We’re going to be doing a Gnuradio tutorial in conjunction with a ham
radio conference next week and I’d like to hand out a bootable Gnuradio
Companion CD so the attendees can follow along on their laptop.

I know Ettus has the USB drive environment, but we can’t afford to hand
out thumb drives, and I’m not sure what would be involved in trying to
move it to a CD (and I’m juggling a million other things getting ready
for the conference!).

Does anyone know of an image for a bootable Ubuntu or other Linux distro
CD with the GRC stuff installed that’s available for download?

Thanks,

John

Hi John,

If you have a fresh debian/ubuntu install with GNU Radio & dependencies,
you can use Remasteresys to create a bootable and redistributable copy
of
the installation: http://www.remastersys.com/

Not sure if it can be on a CD though.

Thanks, Alex! It looks like remastersys will do exactly what we need.
I see now that a CD may not be big enough for the system, but we can use
DVD with no problems.

I think this’ll do the trick.

Thanks again,

John

The new Pentoo iso includes a GNU Radio build. I recommend trying the
beta:

Thanks, but I was really looking for a bootable CD image with the
packages already installed so you can run GRC right from the CD. The
idea is to let people follow along on their own laptops during a
Gnuradio tutorial – they can just stick the disc in and go.

It looks like pentoo might do the trick, or alternatively I can install
an Ubuntu system, add GRC either via APT or (more likely) using Marcus’
install script, then use remastersys to create a live CD from that.

Debian wheezy also has gnuradio packages in it’s repository.

Best,
