The Current GNURadio Binary packages cannot installed on Ubuntu 8.04
because for some reason (may be Johnathan know) it needs python 2.6
which is not available for Ubuntu below 9.04.

Same with Debian unstable of today.

I managed to install all GNU Radio packages from
gnuradio.org/ubuntu/dists/3.1 except gr-comdedi - the comedi libraries
were removed -, so the gnuradio-python gnuradio packages are broken.
3.2 is completely uninstallable due to the dependency on python2.6.
python2.6 is mayby not getting into the next release, so it would be a
pitty if the packages would not be installable with python2.5.

Any chance to revert this dependency to >=2.5?
Any chance to get the packages into Debian unstable and thus Ubuntu?

The dependency on Python 2.6 was somewhat arbitrary. The packages
supplied on gnuradio.org were designed only for Ubuntu 9.04, and
Python 2.6 is standard for that.

Bdale Garbee is working on modifying the packaging infrastructure to
be more flexible and work with Debian itself and other Debian
derivatives besides Ubuntu, as well as getting the packages accepted
back into Debian proper. I haven’t heard an update from him recently
so I don’t know the status.
