Announcing PyBOMBS GNU Radio installation tool
The GNU Radio development team announces their new Python Build Overlay Managed Bundle System (PyBOMBS). If you’ve ever tried to install GNU Radio for use with the RTL-SDR or other software defined radio, you know it can be a hit or miss proposition. Depending on your OS and distro, it an be either flawless or dependency hell. Recognizing this situation the GNU Radio crew developed an installation tool which should make it easier to build GNU Radio and its dependencies, as well as to co-locate and build out-of-tree projects (gr-osmosdr, gr-baz, etc.) They intend to provide better integration with out-of-tree project through the use of build script known as “recipes”, that determines how to build and install a project, including dependencies, where to find the source code, and a template that tells the system how to build a type of project (cmake, autotools, etc.)
Give GNU Radio a try by installing with PyBOMBS today. (We just wouldn’t suggest discussing this new software tool in airports or on commercial airliners…)This entry was posted in News, open source, SDR, software and tagged GNU radio, PyBOMBS.
