Gnuradio .deb won't install on ubuntu intrepid


#1

adding the repository to the 3rd party sources and running “sudo
aptitude install gnuradio usrp” gives me:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
python-gnuradio-comedi: Depends: libcomedi-0.7.22 which is a virtual
package.

this is because python-gnuradio DEPENDS on python-gnuradio-comedi
can we turn this dependency into a “recommends”?

by the way, the libcomedi-0.7.22 package in hardy
(http://packages.ubuntu.com/hardy/libcomedi-0.7.22)
is replaced by libcomedi0 in intrepid
(http://packages.ubuntu.com/intrepid/libcomedi0)

thank you

Had the same problem with Debian testing some days ago.
As a workaround you can deselect python-gnuradio but select all its
dependencies excluding comedi. Of course this will leave the package
gnuradio with unfulfilled dependencies, but you can do it the same way
with this package.

Python-gnunradio depends on a lot of things, which should be all
recommends IMO, especialy as a dependency of gnuradio.

The deb files for 3.1.3 we’re written for hardy, they haven’t been
updated to work with intrepid. Release 3.1.4 will work this out.
