Linux distribution suggestions?


#1

For GNU-Radio (and a USRP)… anyone have suggestions on Linux
distributions that work well? I used Mandrake 10.1 (with KDR as the
desktop) about a year ago now and it seemed to work well enough… I see
they now have a new version (“Mandriva 2006”); anyone tried it?

Any distributions one should avoid? :slight_smile:

Thanks,

There are lots of choices that are working well. I’m using SuSE 9.3,
SuSE 10.0, and Mandriva 2006. I know of others using Ubuntu and
Fedora Core 5.
