Which version of Linux is the most convenient, SuSE or Fedora or

Hi,

I am new to GNU radio and I was wondering which version of Linux you
use. Is it SuSE or Fedora? I just want to know which is the most
popular version of Linux for gnu radio such that I would have less
problems working on it. I have a PC with CentOS and I cannot install
gnu radio on it fully. Thanks very much for your time.

Includes direction for various flavors of GNU/Linux. My personal
experience is that Ubuntu and Fedora are fairly easy to use with
gnuradio.

The distro instructions always failed in some way or another for me.
Not that I could not run gnuradio, but certain dependencies for
modules almost always failed.

FC8 rocks now that gnuradio is in the repos.

It is as easy as “yum install gnuradio”

Thanks,

Thanks for all the help!

I am using CentOS because it was installed for me. I installed Fedora
Core 8 last weekend and it is working.I can run simple codes like the
dial tone and the FM receiver. The FM receiver gives out only noise,
but shows nice windows, and I guess it is because there is a filter I
should bypass. The daughter board works only for the 2.4GHz band.

to install gnuradio using slackware 12.1:

wget
http://slack.sarava.org/packages/noarch/simplepkg-0.6pre27-noarch-1rha.tgz

installpkg simplepkg-0.6pre27-noarch-1rha.tgz

wget
ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware-12.1/extra/slacktrack/slacktrack-1.32-i486-1.tgz

installpkg slacktrack-1.32-i486-1.tgz

createpkg --sync

createpkg -i gnuradio

if you want to review the bash scripts that made the packages, take a
look at:
/var/simplepkg/slackbuilds
/var/simplepkg/slackbuilds/media/radio/gnuradio

or, via web:
