Thanks for mentioning it. I'll download it and install it later. I prefer installing these things instead of using it live for better performance. I have some extra hard drives that I can use to install it on. Here is the download page. http://shackbox.net/downloads/
It says the KEYMAP is in French, so it has to be changed. "By default keymap layout is set to french, don t forget to change it!"
The ISO file is rather large at 3.7 GB so you must put this on a DVD. Or run it as virtual. It will take 2 hours+ to download.
(For the newbies. The ISO file simply means it is an complete installation disc that once you download the file you must burn it to a DVD disc as an ISO file (image file) not as a regular file. Then once you burn it, you can run it or should be able install it.)
From the site it says....

SDR & GNURadio support
Shackbox is the first and only linux live cd distribution offering to user sdr support ofr rtl2832 devices AND gnuradio-companion plug and play with no installation needed.
Shackbox is free to download, it s a choice i ve did,BUT i have also decided that support well be par of a 10$ per year membership, just because it s a lot of work for myself, and helping you guys for free, wouldn t help me at all. Hosting and maintaining takes me already lots of time, sure you understand. "
Thanks for the tip
