Ah, I wasn't aware of that.  I've been using Linux Mint (currently 18.1) which is Ubuntu-based and works well.  One challenge with straight Debian is how slowly updates filter through the system.  Mint, I think, is usually a bit more current than even Ubuntu.

But there is a separate issue at the moment with rtlsdr installed via build-gnuradio.  I'm hoping that will be resolved soon.
