Questions on the new UbuntuInstall wiki-site

Dear List, dear Alexandru,

at first i have to say, the installation instructions are looking much
better now! Thanks!

But when comparing the new to the old instructions i noticed some
differences (for Ubuntu 10.04), that made me think:

  1. The “Install Boost” Part is gone. I did not notice an additional
    command
    for installing boost in the script (besides of libboost-all-dev, but
    that
    was there before). Isn’t it necessary any more to install Boost
    separately
    or at all?

  2. I also noticed that you added autoconf and removed libfftw3-dev from
    the
    script. Why was libfftw3-dev removed? Is it included somewhere else in
    10.04, because i saw, that it’s still included in the Script for 9.10.

I just got curious and hope that these didn’t accidentally went missing
during the change.

Hi Fabian,

Thanks for the feedback. The page really needed to be simplified
because much text that caused confusion was no longer relevant for
recent Ubuntu. I kept the old instruction for Ubuntu 8.04 or earlier
here:
http://gnuradio.org/redmine/wiki/gnuradio/LegacyUbuntuInstall

But when comparing the new to the old instructions i noticed some
differences (for Ubuntu 10.04), that made me think:

    or at all?

Since Ubuntu 8.10, the boost that comes in Ubuntu is sufficient and
manual installation is not necessary.
libboost-all-dev installs the devpacks for all boost components.

  1. I also noticed that you added autoconf and removed libfftw3-dev from the
    script. Why was libfftw3-dev removed? Is it included somewhere else in
    10.04, because i saw, that it’s still included in the Script for 9.10.

Although autoconf is already installed as a dependency for automake, I
decided to list is explicitly.
libfftw3-dev is still there at the end of the first line?

I just got curious and hope that these didn’t accidentally went missing
during the change.

Thanks. I didn’t have a chance to verify all the install scripts and
there may indeed be an error or two.
