Hi guys, in particular @joshblum
Due to the recent UHD PPA updates I went on and built the relevant packages (gnuradio and up) for Ubuntu 16.10. Unfortunately, the known crash issue has not been resolved in the latest UHD so the packages are pretty much useless for anything that has a runtime link to UHD.
Therefore, I have rebuilt gr-osmosdr with UHD support disabled and things are now working fine – well at least gqrx.
I hope it’s OK that I did this without asking first. I really see no choice since programs like gqrx crash without any possibility to work around it, except disabling UHD support in gr-osmosdr.
