Thanks for those tips. A few follow-up points below.
Are you saying that on the same file, it gives non-deterministic
results? If so, that might be a bug in the file, but could also be in
GNU Radio. There are rumours that there's a randomness bug in the
scheduler, but it's hard to reproduce.

should be able to provide more info once I learn more about the items below.

GBJ> Found the Trigger settings and already learned more about how my block is
behaving. I don't see a way to do a one-shot trace (i.e. trigger once, then
stop). I would like to see the very first piece of audio and the first few bits
that get decoded; is that possible? As a work around, I could conceivably make
an even smaller audio file so that the whole trace fits on one screen, but I
would still like a one-shot for future use.
>Where did you install GNU Radio? And how?
GBJ>I practiced a few times on an old laptop, and then a few more times on a
virtual machine. In the end I installed GQRX from the GQRX PPA (which was
listed as the way to do it for all Ubuntu users); that package included gqrx,
gnuradio, osmosdr, and most of the dependencies I needed, in one
package/operation. I do not recall ever specifying a destination - but using
File Manager, I can see: /usr/share/gnuradio and the following subdirectories:
examples, fec, grc, modtool, themes. No sign of cmake stuff nor the location
that the OOT module was seeking. I know the concepts of directory trees etc.,
but I don't know the linux usual or recommended locations.
