How to install GNU Radio, FFTW, RTL SDR, GrOsmoSDR, and more using PyBombs with dependencies, by rpm/deb or build from source

Recently I purchased a Mini SDR (DVB-T) from NooElec to play around with some RF and do some testing, but for some reason kept running into problems while trying to build GNU Radio on Debian (Ubuntu/Linux Mint) from the git repos.  I attempted to use the version from the standard repository, but unfortunately that version is old and out dated (I think 1.6 was in repo, but 1.7.2 is latest), so the only option was to build from source.  I swear I probably spent 4 hours trying to figure out why certain dependencies wouldn’t install, then I would get one to install, and another one would come up…add to that for the testing I wanted to do I needed to install FFTW, RTL SDR, and GrOsmoSDR, which is when I finally decided to find a better way to build from source (or find latest version deb/rpm).

So say you have software running on a server that you used “git pull” to get from a GitHub project.  You only use the software and need to make minor changes to work with your particular setup, meaning you don’t submit any updates to the GitHub project.  Well what happens when you want to update that software?  All those changes you make is going to cause issues, right?  Well maybe, but that’s where git stash will come in handy for you… (more…)
