Unable to install gnuradio-3.4.2

Hi list,
try to install older version of gnuradio (3.4.2 with gcc-4.4 on ubuntu
12.04) but after successful make, when trying make install, getting
following errors:

test -z “/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gruel/pmt” || /bin/mkdir
-p
“/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gruel/pmt”
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 pmt_swig.py
‘/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gruel/pmt’
…/…/…/py-compile: Missing argument to --destdir.
make[7]: *** [install-pmt_swig_pythonPYTHON] Error 1

tried on Google a lot but no luck, please point out whats going wrong
here???

Hello um, nameless!

I could imagine that a lot of tools, possibly including py_compile have
changed significantly since 3.4.2 (October 2011), although you also are
using a strongly outdated Ubuntu, so things might still match.

The problem is that most people on here are actively developing and
using recent versions of GNU Radio with state of the art operating
systems, so it might be hard for us to reproduce your issue. You should
try to downgrade your python and see if that helps, that’s the only idea
I can think of right now. There was an issue that was fixed around
mid-2011 with the automake tools that revolved around the --destdir
flag, but I can’t really remember; that fix should, however, be included
in Ubuntu 12.04.

There’s too many things that changed since 3.4.2 since then. By the way:
I’m not totally clear why you actually would want to use 3.4.2; the
build system is intimidating compared to the current, CMake-based one,
making error search a lot more painful, and many aspects of GNU Radio
should still be compliant to 3.6.5, which is the preferred version to
use if you’re bound to the old pre-3.7 API.

All the best,
Marcus

Usually 3.4.2 is used when OpenBTS together with an USRP1 should work.
