Hi Joe

This isn't a straightfoward question - the most simple answer from our POV is that if a compile fail occurs during pybombs and the failure is in (say) UHD or GTK (etc). the problem isn't an OP25 problem.  That is, we can't issue updates to OP25 to fix problems outside of OP25.  That said, I did some searching and found that UHD has a statement (for ubuntu) that rules out ubuntu 10.04 for example.  I think gnuradio has the same policy.  Also some versions of ubuntu install problematic versions of libboost, which pybombs has to make special provision for.  For these reasons it's probably safe to say that you should use newer rather than older versions, and should prefer "LTS" releases since they will remain supported longer than non-LTS ones.  Additionally, you should report all failures here but should not be surprised/offended if we tell you that it's another mail list that ultimately needs to hear and resolve the issue...

 Here's what UHD says on ubuntu:

 "We only support versions of Ubuntu and Fedora that are officially maintained and supported. Currently supported platforms are:
 Ubuntu 12.04-13.10
