Version 8 (Johnathan Corgan, 05/24/2009 02:42 am)
h2. Installing GNU Radio
The official Debian package repository has GNU Radio 3.0.2 available, though this is rather obsolete.
It is recommended that you [[BuildGuide|complete a source build] from the 32 stable series either through downloading a [[Release32Branch]]] tarball or using Subversion to check out the software from our subversion repository.
h2. Building from source
In the first place you should have a look at the README file for the current dependencies. _dpkg -l |grep <packagename>_ is your friend to see your current installed versions.
h3. Resolving missing dependencies
If you get errors about missing programs/libraries or wrong versions, use the package management system like described above. To find the name of a package that provides a certain file use the "Debian package search page":http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages.en.html#search_contents. To get old versions of packages have a look at "If you want to build a recent svn snapshot of gnuradio you need wxgtk version 2.8 or later.
Debian Etch only has wxgtk version 2.6 which is not recent enough.
But you can install more recent wxgtk versions from the wxwidgets debian and ubuntu repository.
See [http://wiki.wxpython.org/InstallingOnUbuntuOrDebian Installing wxgtk-2.8 on debian etch":http://snapshot.debian.net/].
