I have been trying to install the latest stable release (v3.1) on
Intel-Mac with Mac OS X(10.4.11). I have tried to follow both Jon
Jacky and Michael D.'s build guide, I had different problems.
Anyways, the problems can be concluded as follows:
- Since GNURadio 3.1 requires numpy instead of old Numeric, hence I
either have to use python 2.4 installed by macports or I have to make
numpy work on python2.4 (I failed to do so, not sure why).
- I tried to use python 2.4 (import numpy no problem), this is the
command I used to build:
setenv GR /opt/local
./configure --prefix=$GR --with-pythondir=$GR/lib/python2.4/site-
sudo make insall
- When I tried to use mac build-in python (2.3.5), with numpy
installed the error message I got while running some python script:
Traceback (most recent call last):

I doubt this is the problem of numpy. I did notice that numpy
requires python2.4 or higher, I am not sure if there is a work around
or not. Any hint would be appreciated.
Am I missing something somewhere?
Thanks in advance.
