Newbie trying to get CVS build to work

Hello to all,

I am a newbie to gnuradio and also to linux so any help would be
appreciated. I have been trying to install gnuradio via cvs and I have
into some problems. Here is the error that I get when I go to build

$ ./for-all-dirs …/buildit 2>&1 | tee make.log

checking for Python include path… Traceback (most recent call last):
File “”, line 2, in ?
ImportError: No module named distutils.sysconfig

configure: error: cannot find Python include path

build FAILED in /home/jensen/gr-build/gnuradio-core

I can see that it cannot find Python include path but what am I supposed
do to at this point to fix it?



Probably that the ‘python-devel’ package is not installed on your
Usually, Python is installed, but not files needed for development. The
procedure is dependant of your Linux distibrution and you should consult
web site of your Linux distribution for more information.

For additionnal dependencies and instruction about installing GNU Radio,
have a look a this link, is very useful:



PS Whenever you meet an error about an include path not found, but the
package is installed, try to install package-devel.
